....... whilst completely ignoring our biggest need for some time now, the O line. On account of this ageing, injury prone tackle, renown for collecting flags with all the enthusiasm of a Kwaeme, will magically transform into a young, fit, healthy player. If you believe.
Just remember, brethren, it happened before. Well, nearly.
Free agency is about needs. The draft is about BPA. If we reach for a tackle and he doesn't pan out, we still have the same need. But if we pick a guy like Iupati, we can try him out at tackle, but if it doesn't work out we have a great guard. Or we take a guy like C.J. Spiller. He would give us explosiveness on offense. Flozell Adams, I admit, would be a band-aid, but if we get him, we can pick a tackle in the 2nd or 3rd round who will compete with him this year or, at worst next year. And if our 2nd or 3rd round pick doesn't work out, it doesn't hurt financially because he wasn't a first round pick.
