i'm not sold.

I don't know about his hips. But the guy racked up sacks and tackles for loss, was a team captain, and is athletic enough to block kicks. I'm really no expert and I haven't watched as much of these guys as many of you on this board, but I really feel like 3-4 OLB is one of the most over analyzed positions in the draft. Everyone wants guys that over 6'3" or are freakish athletes. I think you want productive DEs that are a little smaller and faster than average and play with power.

From everything I've read and heard, people say Eric Norwood is an ideal 3-4 OLB. I think his measurables are about 6'1 and 250 lbs!

Eric Norwood

I agree we need to get players who'll make a difference right away. The Jets built their Olines first and the resuts are there for all to see. We have some good talent on the team. If we get our Oline deficiencies fixed this draft and I feel we'll be in the playoffs next year.

This guy just seems to have a knack for getting to the QB on any play.

I'll tell what will make an immediate impact.

1. An OT in the mold of a Ryan Clady or even a Michael Oher.

2. An OG in the mold of Steve Hutchinson.. Not a David Bass whose signature move is to pull around into the A gap look for someone to block and/or just fall down.

3. A stud DB, corner or safety since we could use either, that can also upgrade our return game.

So you would be happy with:

#13 OT Trent Williams or Anthony Davis

#16/17 OG Mike Iupati

#45 CB Javier Arenas

I hate drafting two Olineman in the first round, but I keep coming back to this type of scenario too.

Not me. You really want to fix your team you fix the trenches and get the best big uglies you can.

This won't happen though, not with McC.
