Warmack vs Fluker

42 posts in this topic

if all we did for the offensive line was draft warmack and plug him in at RG, we would look instantly better. right guard was a massive problem last year and it made kalil/bell look much worse as a result.

Or do you grab Barrett Jones, who can play any position on the line?

That's a guy I'd love to have too.

Honestly not sure where Fluker and Jones will be rated as prospects at this point. Warmack is rated high first round but so was DeCastro.

Trading down is an option from where we are, of course, but that can be dicey too.

Bottom line is that I'd trade our OL for Alabama's straight up. Right now. Kalil is the only guy who'd make me hesitate on that statement. Gross is old, Silatolu is raw, Hangartner is a backup, and Bell is also a backup on a good OL.

THIS.

Big men allow you to compete! What if Gettle tries to get a JPP type in Ezekial Ansah...Sure we have two pass rushers but so did the Giants.

Giants technically had four.

Spagnoulo started the option there of essentially having four defensive ends on third down.

THIS.

Which is also exactly why I wouldn't touch an Alabama RB in the 1st round as an NFL GM. Tough to judge a guy who is basically running behind an NFL OL against college defenses. Any good college RB would put up great numbers at Alabama in that offense behind that OL.

An Alabama lineman blocking for an Auburn quarterback... :unsure:

Warmack. Add Warmack and the OL then has the potential to be damn good. The move gives some solidity to the right side and allows Gross another year at LT. This obviously changes if we cut Gross, but I don't see it happening. Follow it up the following year by going LT with the 32nd pick if you want.

Bell - Warmack - Kalil - Amini - Gross = Cam on his feet

If Gettleman decides to cut Gross, Eric Fisher is a guy to watch in the draft. If we go with Fisher, Gross is as good as gone IMO.
