it wouldn't be that different from picking up a freak of a kicker in the first. sure...the guy might be a freak, but he'd still be a kicker. you just have to wonder about how important that position is compared to other ones.



Eh, I think that is a bit extreme. Comparing a kicker to a guard is a lot different. But i kind of get what you are saying.

I don't understand the under appreciation of Warmack. He plays with an unbelievable amount of speed and power. With his size, he will be a difference maker for someones offense. If we are really going to keep all these backs I could easily see him being the pick. He can make a running lane all by himself.

I couldn't disagree more about DT. It's a premier position.

but he's just a guard. you just need serviceable. some skill position or even OT or DT would be of more benefit to the team. you can find what you need in FA easily enough without giving up so much. some of the other positions we are looking at and need would be too costly in FA. you've got to look at a bigger picture than him just being a stud OG.

If he can do all that why isnt he a DT then? Think of all the sacks and problems he would cause a QB.

comes with a higher bust rate than other positions and still takes a couple years to not look bad. harder to get a legit day one starter than other spots.

G may be our absolute weakest position on the OL. Sure serviceable works for those interior line positions other than C, but rarely do you see players with the difference making ability as Warmack. He will be an impact player. Can't say that about many Guards in the NFL.
