Signed as a potential sleeper star by Jerry Angelo prior to the 2009 season, Omiyale looked solid in backup appearances as a tackle in Carolina. But Angelo and/or coach Lovie Smith immediately moved him to guard, where he was weak. Then in spot duty at right tackle in 2011, Omiyale was an abomination.
What I can’t figure out is how he ended up being very serviceable at the critical left tackle position during the 2010 season, leading to the hosting of the NFC Championship game. How could he be so bad, yet be at least OK at left tackle?
Who knows, but he gone!
