I'm starting to like Lane Johnson a lot.

Good player but bad move at no.14. Gettleman will not take an OL with the 1st pick. Trust me. And Gross will restructure his contract.

Still need a guard though, interior play was alot worse than tackle play


We do need a guard but it is alot easier and cheaper to get a good guard in FA than a LT. I view replacements for Gross and Steve Smith as high priority since A)we have options for neither on the roster and B) starting LT's and #1 WR's are expensive and rare in FA. IMO DT, OG, LB and Safety are easier to find cheap starters at in FA so high draft picks should be used elsewhere unless it's a special talent. my 2 cents

Don't care for 40 times especially from an OT. His quick feet off the snap is very impressive though.

(not that a 300+ lb man running a 4.6 40 isn't impressive from a strictly athletic stand point)

He has been my choice since Sr Bowl Wed practice.

I think OG is the most cost-effective FA position to find talent at. We made a mistake with Hangman but I think Gettleman can find a suitable replacement after eeking out some cap space. Concerning OT, it all depends on what happens to Gross in the coming weeks or so.

you almost have to take him if he's available. Let's say we continue to improve in the win column over the next 3
years.....drafting at 14 may be and should be the highest we're going to see until the post-Cam era.

You feel comfortable taking at LT at 24 or 25?

I think we better get while the gettings good. Not to mention the need to protect Cam should be our highest priority.

Finally, I like the idea of him playing right tackle next year, and learning from Gross.

DT or guard in the second.

Johnson is a solid player and a very realistic option.

I just think he's more of a "potential" player than a "safe" pick. If it is between him and a better all around player when we select, it will be the BPA.


I agree to an extend, B'wood, but if there is a need at a few positions, LT and QB come to mind, the first round is about potential over BPA.

However, in this case, you could argue that we have a LT.

However, you could also argue that people should draft for known long-term needs--1 year contracts and free agency are best for quick fixes.

I dunno. It all depends on perspective. I see Johnson as an upgrade at RT for a year and a long term solution to fill a need at LT. LTs are rarer than CBs and DTs.

We shall see. I am not opposed to other options than T.
