Alameda Ta'amu appears to be the second coming of Casey Hampton, at least I think so. 6'7" 348 lbs is just a monster of a guy. From what I've read he'll be a 2 down type of player like Hampton is, coming out on passing situations. However he's got what could be some better feet than the big snack so if he is stuck out on the field in no huddle situations and what not he might not be so bad.
I know you can't predict how the guy will do when he hasn't even played yet but do you guys think he can beat out McLendon? If you listen to John Mitchell he'll tell you to not write off McLendon until you see him play more. That comment could go either way depending on what you read into it but at the very least we have some options now at NT with big snack likely not ready to go.
