So is it clear we need oline help?

Is it a consensus among people who have attended camp that we need to find oline help from outside the team? From people who have seen it first hand, have they been that horrible?

Nah they'll all make the probowl this year.

The consensus seems to be gross is ok along with Silatolu and kalil but the right side is a mess

IMO, yes. Need a vet RG. I think decent plug and play OGs are easier to find than OTs and that Bell can be serviceable if playing beside a starting caliber RG. Bell is always going to struggle against speed and there are going to be teams that we play that we'll have to keep a back home to help him.

We have to face some beast dlines this year. I didn't think they looked that good on Sunday but that was the first full pad practice, The right side needs some upgrading. JPP and Aldon Smith are lurking.

I say sign Brandon Moore if we can get him reasonably priced and then wait to sign a veteran tackle after cuts.

He announced retirement last week I believe

Moore came out and said that wasn't true. He is just waiting for the right situation (money).

I wouldn't mind making a trade for someone...Hurney was always the king of using late round draft picks to trade for a few guys that could help out.

 

Don't think thats Gettlemen's preferred method which is ok...just hope he has a plan.  As someone said in another thread if its that obvious to us then its probably pretty obvious to them.

I'd feel more comfortable if we did sign somebody. Not too big on Wharton, but it would be better than nothing I suppose.

by all accounts silatolu has looked outstanding thus far, which automatically makes gross and kalil look more like the pro-bowlers they're expected to be. less messes to clean up. most of us have been calling for a right guard to come in and add some clout to the position for quite some time. i'm sure gettleman is as aware of the need as anyone, especially now that kugzilla has gone done with a hammy. bell is serviceable at RT, but he needs someone competent inside to complement him.

 

either way i'd expect to see a lot of packages with hartsock lined up on the right to give a little extra help. from what we've heard he's a halfway decent receiving option as well, so i wouldn't be surprised to see some passes tossed his way. makes sense now that giving him a contract was a bigger priority than expected during the offseason.

 

i don't think campbell is going to do anything for us. at best he is depth. between free agency and next year's draft we need a new starting right guard and right tackle/franchise left tackle that can let us kick gross back to the right to finish out his career.

 

thanks to all the fugers down at training camp providing the raw data to allow everyone to make attempts at interpreting it.
