WE (K)NEED 1st ROUND TALENT ON OUR O LINE. period

106 posts in this topic

Don't get your heart set on players this early, they may well be gone early or end up sucking at the combine.

But yes, o-line should be our top pick if someone good enough is available.

i want the best oline for cam period. running and pass protection.

warmak & fluker

or

fisher & thomas (if by gods grace fisher is still on the board)

I like Warmack and Fluker and would be elated for what that would do to our run game if we got both of them. The best protection for Cam is to have our all world backfield running through giant holes. Fluker is by far the best run blocker at tackle in the draft but needs a little work in pass pro....something that I could definitely live with.

Are you for serious????? You are going to question Aboushi's foot speed and then say Fluker is a better option. Fluker looks like he has damn cinderblocks strapped to his feet when he is against a speed rusher.

Just went back and watched some tape. Aboushi's foot speed is better than I thought, Although I like Fluker better as a RT than I like Aboushi as a LT.

Aboushi

Fluker

if these players are not there that would mean projected 1st rounders that fell would still be available.

Win win situation

Aboushi

Fluker

I can agree with that assessment. If you put Fluker at RT and draft Warmack as RG, we are instantly a good running team again. I want our Oline to destroy.

the only way i question a Fluker or Thomas pick in the 2nd is if Rogers is still on the board.

even still id prob roll with oline. oline helps alot more ppl (qb, rb, and wrs)

Agreed, Niners have three first round picks on their line that is key to there success, the panthers have:

An aging LT who is on the decline

LG who played division 2 ball

A stud, but small center

God knows who at RG

And a undrafted FA at RT

..........Sometimes you have to just think about it to realize how bad it is. If you like this groups chances against playoff caliber teams, pass me whatever it is your smoking.

Can we:

(1) Cut Jordan Gross

(2) Cut Chris Gamble

(3) Cut all the scrubs and old vet(s): Naka, Ron, AE, etc

(4) Draft Warmack in the 1st

(5) Draft Aboushi in the 2nd

(6) Trade up for Da'Rick Rogers or Quinton Patton

(7) Sign Alan Branch

(8) Sign Antoine Cason

(9) Sign Patrick Chung

(10) Start Winning some damn GAMES

(k)need?

Anyway...yes...fill that RG spot with Warmack. That will help Bell in the process at RT.

"(k)need". It's a pun, implying if we don't fix the O line Cam will need knee reconstructive surgery like RG3.

When building a team you start with the cornerstones, QB and the defensive QB many times the MLB. Then you place a foundation which is your lines.

Teams that have this foundation and cornerstones are able to plug in skill players and find success.

But this can't be done in one offseason. But I do believe it can be done in two and Gettleman can come close this year. But as much as fans will agree with the approach when players begin to get cut like possibly DeAngelo the reaction will be quite different.

Well it's a good thing we got rid of a GM who only drafted RB's and LB's in the first round now isn't it?

Let's see what Mr. Gettleman will do.
