We might be able to get Berry with the Carolina pick and Bulaga with our second pick.
I don't thinks so.. Let's just say we have the 10th and 20th picks. I think Berry is off the board by #10, he is just that versatile and good, and Bulaga will likely be gone by # 20 since there just aren't that many really good OTs in the draft. Good OTs come off the board really quickly. Remember 2 years ago, I think 7 were draftedd in the 1st round.
I think we should be thinking OL, OL, OL.. and then just for good measure OL.
I actually think we need a new starting LG, C (yes, Eric Heitman sucks!), RT and possibly RG. I would not give up on Rachal yet but he needs to be pushed in the off-season in TC and im not talking about being pushed by Wragge or Snyder I mean a solid vetran for a 2nd, 3rd or 4th rd draft pick.
I really hope we solidify the LG posistion in free agency. Longan Mankins would be awsome and kill two, maybe three birds with one stone as he is a great pass blocker, run blocker and would bring a mean and nasty attitude to our O-Line which badly needs one!
Wow! Maddog sighting in 5. 4. 3. 2....
Seriously, how can you say Heit sucks? With little or no support from our poor-ish guards he stands out as one of our best OL.
I agree about the need to draft OL though. Been banging on this drum for rather a long time
