o line is much more important look at the colts have been on top of league for years they have dominant o line
best example look at the saints they have had reggie bush and drew brees for a while now they just made the playoffs what even though they had both a game breaker and a QB they couldnt make the playoffs they upgrade their o line then they make superbowl and win it
O line is the key if we want to win no matter how unsexy it is it is our biggest need and that getting a dominant OT and OG in draft will take us far in the playoffs
How many 1st round picks did the Saints and Colts invest into those OL's ? The Saints got through the season and went to the Superbowl without Jamal Brown FWIW, it was Jermon Bushrod who played most of the snaps at LT (Strief also played a few).
Not saying we should ignore the OL in the 1st round but look closely at those lines, they don't have much invested in them, they are both more of a product of good coaching.
