Mr. Mcgibblets is OTC.
If Luke Joeckel is still on the board do you pick him or Star?
It would be a really hard decision to make, really hard, But i think kelly will really want to make the switch to 3-4 so i would still go with Star. With star they have the main peice to the 3-4 puzzle, and a 3-4 NT of his caliber is hard to come by.
I really like Joeckel as well, and they definately need to address Oline, but the Eagles oline was decimated by injurys, and ended the season with only one starter from week 1. Healthy they are a much better at Oline. Not great by any means, but i think a NT like Star is one of the hardest players/positions to come by.
Star is my #1 rated player in the draft.
