What next? We draft a tight end in the first round?

HOF? Give me a break
We have the room for a luxury pick. There's plenty of Will prospects that will be around in the 2nd round and we have an extra 1st rounder to use on the OL. Guards and Right tackles carry a 3rd round value. Anyone who thinks that we have to spend 2 1st rounders on the line has no idea how most teams built their line.
Not that I agree with taking Spiller. I'm just so tired of hearing we can't afford to take a QB, a WR, etc because we have to address the lines. It's just not the case. There's free agency, and we have an extra high pick.
