Not a better looking or playing offensive tackle on either side of the ball.
Very, very strong performance on first 12 plays of the game so far.

Agree completely. He's been lined up against two of the best pass rushers, in a pass rush setting, in Carl Lawson and Tim WIlliams and looks great.
Not apples to apples, but he looks much better than Sedrick Flowers looked in this setting.
James has to be one of the most versatile lineman i have ever seen.. Dude can play any where on the o-line and be great at each position..
I know a lot of us have him penciled at Center but do you think we give him a look at LT, especially if we get Billings?
He's a big ole' boy that's for damn sure.
Starting to wonder that myself. Him, Estelle & Perkins would be a pretty salty young group of tackles.

I think he can play wherever we need him to play for us on the o-line and that is what makes him great.. I think he end up as a G/C
Bobby, is there a reason why this game is at 5:00 pm on a friday afternoon and not a night game like last year???
He's a quicker Mike Williams.
TV ratings suck with no lead-in.
Much bigger and much better lateral quickness. Kid is a big, big time run blocker.
And potentially Riser. Searels has done a hell of a job building it.
This offensive line is going to be downright nasty in 2 years.
And James is not really in game shape
Lawson, Tim Williams, and Garrett Sickels have been up against James and none have been able to get around him on the outside. They've had a little better luck with inside moves but I don't think any would be credited with even a QB hurry against James yet.
I want to see Chris Jones vs. James. Haven't seen it yet, but it's gotta be coming soon.
Just because he's huffing and puffing doesn't mean he isn't a good player, and no one said as much.
Keep reaching though.
What the hell are you talking about you Idiot
I was saying that he is still not in great shape after his injury
Yet still able to play with the best
Just a retard. Aren't you
I think he was talking about coming off a foot injury.
Apologies. With how much you come over here to talk shit I figured you were just up to your old tricks. Sincere apology though.
Funny, you call me a retard though, seeing as how you can't complete a sentence to save your life.
Undoubtedly I'm mistaken but wasn't he offered a greyshirt?
Sincere apology followed with an insult. hmmmm
And why would I need to worry about grammar on a fan message board?
I'm not getting into a pissing contest once again on here.
I actually put question marks after the right for a reason
I was asking bobby if he was still out of game shape from the injury
That was Naashon Hughes.
Agreed WB. Darius James has been impressive. Can you imagine the size of an Offensive Line in 2 years with Estelle(6'8") and Perkins(6'6") at the tackles, Darius James(6'6") and Curtis Riser(6'4") at guards, and Jake Raulerson(6'5") at center? Those are 5 mammoths. And that's not including Camrhon Hughes, Sedrick Flowers, and Josh Cochran.
ha, you called me an idiot and a retard, and expect me to sit there and eat it? It wasn't enough for you?
Again, apologies for calling you out.
