Which 2013 O-Line combo gives us the best chance to win more that 7 games?

86 posts in this topic

I would like to start off with 7 gradually working any draft picks into the rotation until they are clearly better. In the meantime I would be fine with picking up a few FA veterans as well. We tried starting rookies with Bell in 2011 and Silatolu in 2012 and each time it held us back. I don't like starting rookies unless we have to. We have been spoiled with Newton and Kuechly assuming every number 1 pick will be awesome and that is actually the exception year 1 not the norm.

My only concern with him is you can't fix stupid and apparently he is not the sharpest knife of the bunch.

Learning disability and stupid are two different things. The guy scored a 18 on the Wonderlic, which isn't amazing of course, but for a guy that plays O-Line and has a disability, is more then sufficient.

#4 for me. I really hope one of the LT's is still on the board when we pick. I like the Vasquez signing too. A right side with Vasquez and Johnson would be miles ahead of Hangman and Bell.

And address LT next year?

Yep. Gross is still solid. Amini not being a green rookie will allow Gross not to look so bad, b/c he wasn't.

If they draft a future LT he should start at RT (like Gross did to begin his career). Get the most out of Gross and try to improve at RT.

agreed again.

i really don't like the idea of another green rookie starting again on the OL....esp. next to another green player like amini.

If it meant getting Star I'd be all over that. Silatolu should make strides next year and Bell is okay. RT should be upgraded eventually, but if we get a better option at RG it should help him out. Getting Kalil back will be a big bonus too.

exactly. You can't get rid of Gross and start a rookie LT. Cam simply won't make it even if you improve the right side. Left side would be a death wish for 2013.

If we draft Gross' replacement, we keep Gross and give him Bell's work.
