Alex Cappa is no slouch and his skill, size, speed, and overall brute strength will be one of the first things you will notice when you finally are able to put eyes on him in person.
At 6’6″ and 305 lbs, he can easily become a force to be reckoned with. He has the strength to toss defenders aside with ease, during the passing game, and with a little conditioning, will do the same at all facets of the offensive attack.
The small-school product should easily fall into the footsteps of another such product, Ali Marpet, who caught Licht’s eye back in 2015.
Falling into Tampa’s lap in the 3rd round, Cappa is likely to be another small-school success story our GM and add a much-needed strengthening to the offensive line.
With JR Sweezy still a question mark, and Demar Dotson continually being a question mark as to whether or not he will remain healthy, Cappa’s ability to transition into multiple roles on the line makes him the perfect acquisition.
He is my Draft Gem for 2018.
