If Kalil comes out, we need to trade up and get him. I don't know how we do it, but we need him bad. I'm very tired of seeing Wharton move to LT every time Gross goes down.
No we don't, there are two other quality tackles that will be there if tackle is the route we want to go. I think Claiborne will be the pick IF he is available, but I think Jacksonville will pick before us and I would expect them to snag him. I have no idea what we would do right now.

I agree that we do not need Kalil. Right now, if the draft happened today.. we would be #5, and Jax would pick #6, Bucs at #9. So we would have first shot at Claiborne if draft happened right now. I hope the Bucs can beat the Cowboys this week, and solidify our spot ahead of them. I think the Jaguars will get a WR like Alshon Jeffrey if available.. they have no good weapons for Gabbert.

Kalil has not yet made a final decision

The tie breaker is not based on 'head-to-head' matchup like most would think. It's determined on strength of schedule.. and right now, the Bucs SoS is stronger than ours.. so they are considered the 'better' team because we both have the same record of 4-9, but they did it against a tougher schedule.. so we get to pick before them.

I see.

St Louis will be picking second by years end in my estimation.

They play their last three games against teams that could be playoff bound and will not be taking any games off.
