Yahoo Sports has our O-line (positon group) as the "most muddled" post-draft

If that is correct it makes his pickup even more valuable considering Byers and Piggy retired. I hope Kalil plays all season since he is the only true seasoned veteran with Pro Bowl talent, but we need a backup.

That Folkerts dude was the backup center in waiting. Maybe they are finally cashing out on him,

Man we have a misfit line :-(

This is NOT what you want your franchise quarterback standing behind when we play New Orleans and their aggressive blitzing defense.

I agree with them, there is absolutely no plan at tackle if(when) Byron Bell shits the field.

We will be serviceable at G-C-G but that's because Kalil is just that good. Our OT situation is as bad as I can ever remember on paper.

Muddled is being nice...

I was going to say sh*t.

We really needed one more year of Gross and Wharton.

I think the interior will be pretty good, good depth and talent inside. Tackle is just such a gaping hole, althought gettleman said he likes bond

Hopefully it is just like you said....... Bad on paper but surprisingly pleasant once the season starts.

In my optimistic dreams I see Bell going back to right tackle and playing a smidge better than 2013. I see Chandler surprising folks with his feet and ability to hold his blocks. I think he will end up playing better than Bell. Crazier things have happened in the NFL so I am going to keep hope alive.

I trust our GM, coaches and scouts judgement on talent. The key is making sure the stage isn't to big for the person who wins the job. If the job isn't to big for them we should be ok I suppose.

All of this angst about the line is really overblown IMO.  Last year we were decimated with injuries at the guard position and in the end the line did decently.  The only guy we are replacing is Gross and that takes 1 guy to show up whether he is on the team already or we intend to pick him up when cuts are made.  Truth is we should actually be better at both guard positions and even if Bell is back at right tackle he wasn't exactly the disaster people make him out to be.  He wasn't good but he wasn't awful.

We will pick up at least 1 more LT and we have a bunch of guys who will be competing for the job.  Seems to me that our line will be as good or better at 4 positions and as for LT, I suspect Gettleman has a plan.  As much as he values hog mollies I just don't see him ignoring the LT position.  It is only May so there is still plenty of time to pick someone up.
