    His brother, Chinedum, is a DB at Notre Dame
    As soon as I saw his last name I thought "doesn't he play on ND's defense?

    Looks like a decent signing but I would be interested in seeing a more complete scouting profile. I wonder if he is ahead of Chester on the depth chart (I doubt it).

    Re: Ravens Sign Guard

    I found a profile from when he was drafted:

    Ikechuku Ndukwe Grade: 3.2
    Position: OG
    Class: Sr
    School: Northwestern
    Conference: Big Ten
    Ht., Wt.: 6-3.5, 326
    40 Time: 5.23
    Grading System


    BIO: Former reserve offensive tackle who started the past two seasons at guard.

    POSITIVES: Well-sized, powerful blocker best in a small area. Sets with a wide base, quick off the snap and turns defenders off the line. Blocks down well or engulfs opponents and displays good power as well as pop at the point. Jolts defenders with excellent hand punch and stays with the play.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks footwork and ability in space. Not light on his feet or effective in motion. Does not play with great balance or body control.

    ANALYSIS: A strong lineman who controls defenders once engaged at the point, Ndukwe is a solid short-area blocker ineffective off the line of scrimmage. Could end up as a solid backup in a power running offense.

    PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent

    At this point there isn't much out there. He will be a good backup not great.

    I agree, he should be a decent backup in case the unthinkable happens and we have more of the big fellas go down (please...noo....).

    Best wishes to Ed to get well and to Mr. Brown to take his place on the line.

    Bah. Man. OL must be the damn thinnest position talent-wise in the NFL. It really REALLY sucks that Mule is gone. Of all the Players to stay healthy, he was KEY.

    Vincent could have been replaced by brown, no problem. Same with Flynn. Either could have very well been an improvement.

    But Mule....man. Serious loss. Let's hope noone else gets injured, or else Steve McNair will be sacked more than the Water Buffalo.

    It isn't a small loss, but it isn't this bad.

    I want to know why he has never made the cut and stuck with a team if he's that good???
