So I look at it this way. We should draft 2 dynamic interior linemen. Linemen that can play multiple positions therefore provide stability when injuries happen to the starter or contracts expire. The entire interior line has been atrocious in pass protection anyway. I don't think we can enter next season without depth and competition. Here's a list of guys I would consider.
Cyril Richardson G/T Baylor - Versatile, strong, and nasty. His footwork needs conditioning but his upper body technique is incredible. He locks on and throws around 300 pd men like ragdolls.
Gabe Jackson G Miss St. - My most favorite guard. His footwork is ballerina like. Perfect shuffle. He has very long arms and great strength to latch on. Explosive in the run block. Hes flying under the radar in that people are not mocking him high but he's going to go in the top 2 rounds.
David Yankey G/T Stanford - This guy is basically Iupati lite. You see little trails of Harbaugh every time this guy pulls. He's incredibly good at it too. Very nimble for a big man. I wonder about his pass protection. He can get a good block going but he does have tendency to let the DL rip off him. I think this can be worked on though.
La'el Collins G/T LSU - He played tackle at LSU but I think he would be a great fit at guard and he played it last year for LSU. This guy has that basketball type athleticism and he's extremely explosive at run blocking. He has trouble protecting the edge but I think his athleticim combined with his strength will make him a better fit blocking the slower but stronger DTs inside.
Hronis Grassu C Oregon - Yet again another incredibly athletic olinemen. He needs to work on his strength and conditioning so he's very much a project pick. Idk if this would be the right pick considering Goodwin is half way out the door and we may need someone who can fill in right away. This guy really doesnt have the strength to spar with the interior bigs at the moment. With that said Grassu would provide us with a center that is agile enough to double block then peel off to get the second level. He also is an incredibly gifted puller which is a trait I would love our center to have.
Travis Swanson C Arkansas - so that guy that can start day one well here he is.
Its unfortunate. Swanson appears to lack the speed to get around the corner on the pull but hes one the best pass protectors in the nation at any position on the line. He wouldn't give us the agile puller that Grasu is but he could start day one.
In the end maybe Kilgore and Looney are the answer. Will see come draft time how confidant Harbaugh is in the meantime this had become my most favorite position to scout and I hope we pick up one of these guys.
