Sonoran Hot Reads: Fabbians Ebbele's experience helping him adjust to the NFL

He could end up being the guy out of last year's graduating class to carve out a spot at the next level

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

A picture of former Arizona Wildcats offensive lineman Fabbians Ebbele started going around Twitter Monday, which shows just how ridiculously large the man is:

Ebbele recently talked to 247Sports about how his uncommon amount of experience and size from an undrafted free agent has helped him adjust to life with the Packers. "I think it has really molded me into a better player, just seeing a lot of stuff, what to expect out of seeing things," Ebbele said of his collegiate experience. "Just coming into the NFL, I felt like that helped me, right along with being able to learn new plays and adapt to new coaching styles." That adjustment from Stoops to RichRod might help him make an NFL roster, as well as his freakish size. Austin Hill might have all the recognition of the guys from last year, but Ebbele might end up being the most successful.

- Arizona's first practice is Wednesday evening. Rich Rodriguez wasn't shying away from his excitement to have a returning quarterback, and Anu Solomon was named an honorable mention top player in the Pac-12 by ESPN. Nick Wilson checks in at No. 25.

- ESPN also has these questions for Arizona heading into training camp, with the main focus being on the secondary

- Ryan Thorburn of The Register-Guard previews Arizona's chances of repeating as South Division champs, with a focus on the game at Oregon last year. That game happened to be the focus of our countdown to kickoff series as well

- And then everyone seems to be in consensus that this is the order of Arizona's games from toughest to easiest

- We all know the Wildcats' uniforms are awful, but Cougcenter doesn't think they're as bad as Oregon State's!!!
