One can dream
I always thought Banks was a solid pick, that he would be above average at best but it looks like he has more than that in him. So far, looking good. We just need to figure out the center position and draft some young tackles to develop - we will be in good shape
I was telling people not to overreact before we got to see these guys play in the regular season but I'm also going to tell people not to overreact the other way until we face some legit DTs.

Let's be honest we haven't faced the Aaron Donalds, Chris Jones' of the world yet. Hopefully Banks and Burford keep improving and will be our guys for years to come inside..Brendel appears to be a Ben Garland like player. Hopefully it's enough but let's hope we have a future C on our roster or we make it a priority this offseason to find one.

Guess one upside about Trey's injury is the OL will have more time to get experience for when he's back
Trent Williams who???

He's improved every week hes played starting from preseason, hope he continues on this trend and becomes a pro bowler.

For sure. We're about to get them a ton more experience in pass protection. That's a good thing.

So far so good. When everyone was ripping on him I always pointed to his pass protection being a plus. Can't anchor well but he is also so damn hard to get around. Looks like we finally found 2 solid guards.

Based on film for Norte Dame I never had real issues with pass-pro. My issue was his ability to react if he over set or got beat initially and getting to the second level in RBLKing. I never saw the ability to react and recover because he has slow feet. Overall he looks better there, which is great news. Rebuilding his body last season helped a lot apparently. Arrow up and happy about it

He seemed a bit slow but he's hard to get around so that kind of balanced out his deficiencies imo in pass pro. Run blocking seemed solid but his weight loss/muscle gain helped. Not to mention ANYONE who plays next to Trent Williams will look better than they really are (see Tomlinson).

I think we all wanted Samuel Jr at cb with the 2nd round pick but after trading back it seemed like a solid pick.

If we just have top 10-15 guard play Jimmy may actually do something in the playoffs

Samuel would have been a great pick, but Banks has looked good, plus we got Ward now, so it all worked out, so far, let's hope it stays that way.

When we think about Aaron Donald's 4th quarter in the NFCCG or Chris Jones's entire game in the Super Bowl, you are correct. If the guards can hold up we might actually go all the way.

We also need the NFL to help us out. Hopefully we are the chosen ones.

So true. Now with an immobile Jimmy G guard play is much more important

glad it worked out that way bc I like Ward better than Samuel jr.
