Is this not a major draft concern going into 2013? All I hear is DT mentioned when talking about our first round pick but our offensive line greatly concerns me.

i want Barret Jones from Bama. Kid has been all american at 3 different oline positions! Perfect fit for us with all the shuffling we always have to do on the oline.

I would love to go O-Line. We need to build around Cam.

Offensive line is definitely talked about as a first round pick. I'd rather go with OT in the first and plan for Gross' age.


I'm a person that would love to use the first two picks on both lines. Solidify the offensive and defensive line for the foreseeable future and then they can use the next few drafts to add more talent at perimeter positions for the next few years.

Oline should be our biggest priority this offseason. next up is DT and FS, followed by WR. The problem with drafting DTs early is that if they aren't a "sure thing" (aka, suh, mccoy, dareus) they have a high bust potential. Keenan Allen is worth a look but we may have just enough WR talent to squeak by on, look what other high profile QBs can do with a good Oline and average/sub par receivers. Campbell deserves a shot to compete at FS i believe too.

Depth is the biggest issue when it comes to DT. On passing downs bringing Hardy in the middle solves a lot of the deficiencies and both of the Edwards' are good enough to warrant playing time. The guys behind the Edwards' are what concern me, and I'm not quite sure Ron is worth what we pay him. Still we could address this in later rounds or with a solid vet FA (like Dwan).

Quality guards don't hit the market often because they are fairly cheap to lock up (unless you are cream of the crop like Nicks) and are absolutely integral to quarterbacks that like that clean pocket to step up into. I'm not going to go into draft specifics, but so far Rivera has drafted 2 guys in the first that I questioned being the right choice and I've never been glad to be so wrong, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt (assuming he's still here).

Somehow someway we have to get a legit RG this offseason. Additionally, if the right LT is available at our pick in the first, you have to give it serious consideration.

As to Campbell, he is a SS, not FS. I'm not sure he has the coverage skills to play the FS position.

Oops! My bad. I forgot they moved godfrey over for campbell. Either way I think between what we have at safety we should be able to find some combination that isn't a total liability.

I agree on both LT and RG. Joeckel will be long gone by our pick, his stock has skyrocketed. Honestly if we are picking near the middle of the first I'd be ok with using our first on a guy like Warmack. Tackles get really pricy compared to guards so I'd rather have elite guards and good tackles.

Barrett Jones in the second would be a pretty good pickup. (Might not last to our pick, but I definitely believe he is a second rounder) We would then plug him in at RG.

Do like. I've thought about Lewan in 1 and Warford in 2. It's a huge weakness and I hate picking DT early. We need to get nasty on the OL. We got a group of chiorboys out there.

i have tried avoiding bringing up chip kelly in other threads, but on the chance that he ends up being the pick i think it'd be safe to say that the Oline would be the top priority for the first year.

i'd expect a major overhaul there. they'd have to be powerful and physical for running up the gut, but also fast and athletic and able to work in concert with each other when they have more of a zone blocking scheme...both of which gets used regularly so they have to be able to do well at both. most important is that they be disciplined.
