The experience would be nice but we don't need another Darius James. This guy's pass protection is bad according to this article. If he can come in and improve upon it that'd be good though.

Excerpt

 

Quote

 

The 6’6, 300-pounder was a three-year contributor for the Cardinal who played in five games as a freshman in 2014 before breaking into the starting lineup the following season. During that time, he was the starting right tackle before spending two games at left tackle and six games at right tackle in 2016.

Playing left tackle, Tucker struggled in pass protection, which forced his move back to the right side. He eventually missed time due to injury and didn’t play during the 2017 season, when there wasn’t much news on him

" He eventually missed time due to injury and didn’t play during the 2017 season, when there wasn’t much news on him .  Well. That's not exactly what you're looking for in a GT that you hope will be a quick fix. Didn't play at all as a senior, that probably puts him at at least 3rd string on Stanford's depth chart last season. Doesn't Jax St. have another Casey Dunn for us?

Thread title updated. Don't let the 2019 throw you off. He just may count to the 2019 limit depending on when he enrolls. He would be eligible to play the 2018 season.

Understood. It's his credentials that have come into question. If he couldn't help Stanford, how is he going to help Auburn? Of course, our coaches have access to information that we fans can't access but on the surface this guy doesn't seem to have what we'd be looking for in a grad transfer.

Don't know that he couldn't help Stanford. He started 8 games in 2016 before being knocked out due to injury I believe. 6 at RT. 2 @ LT. He struggled at LT so they moved him back to RT. Also struggled in pass pro but there was no mention of any run blocking issues. He redshirted 2017 by his choice. I'm not sure what to make of that but it's not the typical coaches redshirted a player due to being low on the depth chart though. I have him listed as an OT or OG because AU may think he will do better inside & give an opportunity for another player to move around, Mike Horton to compete at Center for example. The staff likes him a lot though and that's why the thread was created.
