I understand we can add guard in the second or 3rd. But I want elite! I want the #1 OG who by all expert opinion will be a pro-bowler for years to come. I seriously don't want a CB with the first pick, or second for that matter. I rate CB as the #5 teamneed at the moment. #1 is OT, #2 is LG, #3 is S, #4 is Passrushing OLB, THEN CB at #5. There were only 3 teams better at scoring defense than us last year...the Jets, Ravens(surprisingly), and the Cowpukes....ON the flipside, there were 26 teams who were better on offense than us. I miss the days of the 40 point maulings we inflicted on the league, and we'll never get there without an "elite" offensive line.
I'm pretty sure most zoners here agree that fixing the line was the biggest offseason issue. You can't win if you don't score, and we wont be scoring with 2 guys hammering alex and gore getting stuffed all the time.
Nobody said we don't need people on the offensive line, but Haden is Iupati but at corner. Pro-Bowl corners are harder to find than Pro-bowl Guards. I think everybody can agree on that too. Your draft strategy is need over BPA, mine is BPA over need when you can fill the need later on. Rather than need first then BPA later on.
I think you can waste a pick on an elite Guard, but you'll never waste a pick on an elite corner.
