My case to why we should not take an OT at 14

The only one that may fall to us would be Lane Johnson. And yes, I would pass on him or trade down. Im not a fan of Lane like many others.

Mayock said Johnson has the highest potential of the big 3 because of his athleticism. If Johnson is there we take him.

I have heard that.

But IMO, I would not take him. If he's there, we'd be in a great situation to use him to trade down.

You have to have a defense as close to great as you can, and on offense you have to have playmakers (TD SCORER GUYS). No OL is going to score points for you.

Why did the Ravens win the SB or even get in the SB??? Guys like Flacco, Boldin and Jacoby Jones.

Why did SF end up in the SB?? Kaepernick!

B-more had two former 1st rounders at the tackles and a damn good center in Birk and Yanda at RG whom is very good.

The 9ers had Staley, Iupati, and the kid from Rutgers at RT. A VERY good oline.

Yep, both SB teams had very good OLs. Those two OLs were a big reason why those two teams were in the SB in the first place.

Yes, but McKinnie was a guy off FA. You don't need to draft one high when you can grab guys like McKinnie and Birk off FA. I'm not saying they falls off the trees, but if you look at Baltimore they really only spend "1" high pick on Oher.

SF, however has some high rounds guys. But it took then till now of developing and grooming to be where they are. They suffered through all those years bc of no playmakers.

We don't have the money for a McKinney type of player. Hurney's dick is still jammed up our ass. You get a chance to draft a good LT that can play a decade for you, you do it.

Sure they were. But are you telling me that SF OLINE would've won them into the SB with Alex Smith at QB? No way.

Kaepernick won them all those games. Without Kaep, they would've loss to GB in the Divisional rd.

McKinnie didn't cost Baltimore an arm.

Cleveland took the guy that was (still is) going to play for them a decade long in Joe Thomas. He sure is getting there.

They were a fumbled punt away from a SB with A Smith.

We were a John Kasay kickoff out of bounds away from going into OT.

It's probably already been said, but this is a really poor comparison. Not well thought out at all. All the teams that struggled with a first round LT have one thing in common. Shitty, or average QB play. Outside of the Texans (and I would say Schaubb is just above average), every single one of them had questionable Quarterbacks. The difference is we have arguably one of the ten best Quarterbacks in the game. Protecting him with a franchise LT would not only be a very smart investment, it would also lead to better play from Cam and the rest of the offense.....

With a rookie 1st round pick (#8 overall) starting at RT.

That is irony.
