Why not draft a LT and move Gross to RT?

Yeah no reason why we can't land a stand OT in the draft

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.

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.

Would love it.

 

Maybe something like this:

 

Scenario 1:
(1) Best OT

(2) Gabe Jackson / Zach Martin (OG)

 

Scenario 2:
(1) Cyril Richardson (OG)
(2) Seantrel Henderson / Hurst / Erving (OT)

I can really dig that. That's building from where it matters, my friend. I think if we draft CBs we'd still be in the same position as we're not. Those OT/OG would make this offense very explosive.

Anyway we can do to improve this team. Im always looking for ways to improve. Thats why I love the draft so much. That's where you build your team.

 

There's a lot of options to go with. I could think of 100 different possibilities. But we have so many areas to address and we need to work with both the FA and the Draft. If JR and Gman is willing to spend just a little bit of money in FA, we can work on filling the rest and more important needs such as OL through the draft. I know we dont have much money to work with, but guys like Godfrey and Dwill could/should be use as cap casualties. Also restructuring Stew to give us some extra cap. I would really like to address WR (Nicks) and CB (Verner) in FA.
