Partly why the team has been gashed on outside runs at times. Golightly is pretty small, so not terribly surprising with him, but has been a concern with Diggs in his limited snaps.
Diggs has gotten too big. Holloman was a rare athlete that could play at a high weight but I don't see that with Diggs. It appears to me like he has lost a step when he put on the weight.
It appears like Bryant could be a potential answer because of his build and athleticism but I reckon the question is can he grasp it mentally?
I sure hope so because we have got to get that spot solved, fast.
