Desperate times call for desperate measures.
If that means defying conventional wisdom by draft a guard Iupati at #13 or #17 then that is what must be done. It should be noted that Scotty was the Seahawks Director of College Scouting, when they drafted Hutchinson with their 1st rounder (#17).
If that means drafting a RT with a mid 1st rounder, so be it. Maybe we should just draft a LT and move Staley back to RT???
I work in IT and don't profess to have all the knowledge of a professional NFL GM, but I know enough about football to know that good teams are built from the inside out, starting with the OL, and ours sucks and it's time to fix it by drafting:
Bulaga and Iupati with our #13 and #16/17.
Dave, you know how much I share that same feeling about two OLs in the first, but I am more inclined to share the wealth. Beside an OL in the first, I want a play-making all-around talent like Spiller, a pass-rushing beast like Graham, a true NT in D. Williams and/or a ball-hawking safety like Thomas who is becoming more what we need at FS, while moving Goldson to SS where his killer instinct sets the tone of that D as he can play both positions.
In this wonderful cookie jar of NFL hopefuls, I want two different flavors worthy of being the top. After the list of OGs and OTs for the combine, there will be enough options through out each round to land two OLs. It would be a serious and daunting task for Solari and Brown to christen two rook OLs to become starters.
To be honest, any two of these players would make me soooooo happy:
I am a happy dude
