OT prospects looking great for this draft

27 posts in this topic

if one of the elite OTs is on the board we must pick them. If all the top tier OTs are gone then we must select the top tier WR or DB.

I'm on the Marqise Lee/Sammy Watkins or LT band wagon. Barring some miraculous run to the playoffs by Rivera I hope we're in position to get one of those impact players and yes, the Left Tackles in this Draft can be impact players....

Why not draft a LT and move Gross to RT?

Love, Love, LOVE this draft. Deep class at OT, WR, and CB. Just what we needed.

 

Jake Matthews has to be the best OT out of this draft. He could have been the no.1 pick in this past draft if had entered. I thought he was the best OT at A&M last season; better than Joeckel. Matthews is just incredible in pass block. Next on my list is Kouandjio. I believe he's a better pass and run blocker than Taylor Lewan. Lewan is physical and nasty, but is third on my list bc he still needs work on his technique.

 

This is the year where we should draft an OT in the 1st round, but I'm just not sure if OT is a bigger need or is pairing Cam with a young receiver (Lee, Watkins, Evans) a bigger need. We could go WR first and a guy like Erving, Hurst, or Henderson in the 2nd if there. But I would love to have my hands on one of the top3 OTs.

I won't complain with the first round pick as long as it's Lee, Watkins or an OT.  Although this is the order I prefer them in:

 

1)Lee

2) One of the top OTs

3) Watkins

Love the top3 OTs, but would also love to go the FA route for a veteran OT.

Brandon Albert

Eugene Monroe

Michael Oher
Rodger Saffold

Wouldn't it be special if gettleman reverse the trend and draft OL in first 2 rounds next year since he believes in winning in the trenches. A great OL with a mobile QB can give the WRs time to get open.

    • Best suited for a rotational role
    • We just resigned Cody until 2020-21 and Frank will be on his rookie contract until 19-20. I think we don't need to worry about this at all. The biggest issue we have will be Kemba, but since Kemba and Dwight expire at the same time we will have plenty of money. That Howard trade really helped free up Miles 12m at the right time.  Now, as far as fit is concerned. Zeller just makes everybody look better. He will help out the second unit tremendously. I think he will be a great fit with Monk and Frank in that 2nd unit.  Teams go small, take out Dwight put Zeller in. Marvin not shooting well, but in Frank and team with Dwight or Zeller.  We now have options, something we didn't have last year. 
    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula.
