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.

Larry warford would be a nice grab in the second round, big bruising 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.

We win tomorrow. We could get Cooper at RG from UNC. He's a beast.

I think RG is our biggest single need, but there isn't the value for me to address it in the first round especially with some guys that will be there in the early second.

However, another good DT could make a good DL great.

For me I'll take top DT in the first, top OG in the second and hope we can land a good WR somewhere else.

I think there is an OL concern, They have got to keep Cam upright better he's getting sacked way too much. I do think they have played better as a unit the past few games, and I am pleased with how Byers has filled in as a rookie considering where we got him. However, Jordan Gross is losing his first step. I think it's time to draft another tackle high in the draft personally, or if we can afford to make one decent signing somehow in FA it should be there. I'm definitely not sold on the idea of Byron Bell at some point being able to hold down the LT position if Gross goes down or retires after next year. Silatolu appears to struggle at times with being in proper position and costly false starts, but he'll progress. We do have enough talent there to be good for years if we can draft/sign a good young tackle.

Like QB's, if you want a really good LT you almost have to draft them. Good ones just cost way too much in FA. That's not so much the case with guards, so if the right guy was there when we pick, we could go tackle in the draft and pick up the guard in FA.

I know LT's cost more in FA, but good point with the guards. Out of curiosity how much money would we save by parting ways with Gross this offseason?
