Scotty, are you listening??
I concur.... The idea of drafting both an OG and OT together in the first round creates synergy and actually increases the value of both picks. Individually, either Iupati or Bulaga would improve our o-line and offense substantially, but together, the productivity is magnified exponentially and we are able to completely write off the o-line as an area of need for the next decade. There is also added points for the peace of mind created by this move -
Then follow those picks up with Hughes / Graham at our next selection (trade-up will likely be needed) and Jacoby Ford (this year's Eddie Royal) in the 3rd.
1a. Bryan Bulaga (OT)
1b. Mike Iupati (OG)
2. Jerry Hughes / Brandon Graham (OLB)
3. Jacoby Ford (WR & KR/PR)
Brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it...
