We wouldn't be paying two guys LT money, because Kalil will only make what the rookie wage scale allows him to make (which, right now, would be less than Cam makes.) And by the time that his new deal comes up (remember, you can't renegotiate rookie contracts until the 3rd year now), Jordan Gross will probably be close to retiring.
Also, Coples is way too small to be a top-level DT, especially at the level we would need him to be playing at. Coples probably isn't even close to our Draft board.
And the idea of trading Smitty to get Justin Blackmon is outrageous. I don't know what all of you guys see in Blackmon, but, he has good speed, and can run decent routes. Has no one ever stopped to think that he is entirely a system WR? That his gaudy numbers come from his college offense? I mean, you don't waste a top 3 pick on a WR that barely measure 6'1.
My point is a right tackle would not go 2nd in the draft theerfore we are paying more for him but I get your point.I mention Couples only because he is the top rated defensive lineman in the draft and has played both tackle and end at a high level.I agree at 286 he is light but extemely strong. I do not see us trading Smitty either
