who cares? It all depends on how poorly we play to the end of the season and if Injuries are still kicking our ass.

If so a first round pick at the OL is probable.

Otah still has one year left on his contract after this year. There is now way they give up on him now, plus we have guys with potential they like already on the roster. There is just too much money sunk into the o line rignt now anyway for them to give up and start over at this point and time. Otah would have to get hurt and miss the rest of the year again for them to consider using a top 10 pick on a lineman.

I think Otah has gotten a lot of leniency. He's been out for sooo long. But we are a different team without the guy. But at the same time you can't miss that much time either. We needs a guy that won't be out this long. Who knows if his knee will be fine now. I guess time will tell.

Yeah he hasnt done enough for you lately, but last time i checked we had a whole knew coaching staff and apparently he has a clean slate with them. Thats why i say drafting a lineman first next year is not likely, unless we get pretty much nothing out of him this year then yeah there is a possibility.

Exactly, just gotta let the year play out.

But to stay on topic with the thread, i like Matt Kalil i think him or the dude from Stanford are definitely franchise LTs. Kalil seems like he has Joe Thomas potential.

Well, Otah is still young. Gross isn't. In 2 or 3 years Otah could go back to RT with Kalil at LT and we'd be set up for a while. In the meanwhile, Otah moving to G could be a good way to get the best players on the field at the same time.

If we do have the opportunity to get Kalil we will. I honestly don't see us being that high in the draft though.

One thing I'm worried about with Kalil, is that his stock may be driven higher than it should be because his bro is very successful in the NFL. Happens a lot in the NFL(see: Mike Pouncey being drafted #15 overall).

I'm going to hold off on my opinion until I watch more USC games(in the limited games I've seen I've been somewhat impressed with him, but not sure about top 5 overall impressed).

I would love to get Kalil, but like others have said I doubt we're picking high enough. I see us picking around 10th, and either trading down or grabbing OLB or CB.

No, you take Blackmon or Jeffrey at WR. To much of an impact over an O lineman to pass up on and eventual replacement for Steve Smith. The O line can be upgraded later in the draft.
