Drafting an OL player

Originally posted by BrianGO:
I wouldn't mind us drafting three O-linemen.

A starting center.
A young guard to replace Iupati in two seasons.
A development swing tackle.

Not saying we have to get three, but at LEAST one.

The team has those positions filled but I would not mind an upgrade if possible. Unless they take a guy pretty high I doubt they find improvement.

Center: Kilgore (going into his 4th year)
OG: Looney (going into his 3rd year)
OT: Bykowski, Marquardt (huge 2nd year guys--6'7" and 6'8" respectively)

Guy is the perfect protection if they can't resign Iupati. They also need a swing tackle to develop to take Snyder's job. They may develop their PS member from last year (forgot his name), but a mid to late round pick for a college tackle that can projects to guard might be a wise investment.

If I remember correctly Looney has taken snaps at center in preactice. If they are comfortable with Kilgore starting, than Looney can back up at center and guard.
We need to draft a GUARD/CENTER Mauler to develop for 2015.
