If wharton comes back then I think our guard situation is in good hands, but we need a tackle badly even if gross comes back

Looking forward to seeing how he has developed.
He's had lots of time to be coached up, and he'll have more time with the team in the off season.

I wonder what they intend to do with Chandler this off season. Before he was pushed into a starting roll, they we're grooming to be a left tackle - which he graded perfect during preseason.

Are they going to move him back out to tackle for continued grooming there, or will they keep him inside.

I wouldn't credit drafting Star Freaking Lotulelei to Gettleman's "good eye." Not like he went out on a limb and took a chance on drafting a top 3 pick at 14.

 

 

No one's arguing Star was a no brainer.  But Gettlemen has a long history in talent evaluation and he's good at it so I'll defer to his judgement on Kug.  

 

Heck, his first draft and it's looking pretty likely we're going to get 3 starters out of it.  At least.  Kug would be 4.  That's a large piece of getting to the Superbowl.

He might be the answer for replacing Nate chandler but we need Bell on the bench

We need Bell in Atl/NO/TB

 

FTFY

I think we will sign Wharton to another 1-year deal for that reason.

 

I hope so

i still feel optimistic about kug.

 

he needed a year to learn and get used to the pace of a pro football program.

 

next year he gets used to the speed of the game.

 

i don't think he'll ever be an all pro, but i think he could be really good in run blocking.

 

between him, amini, wharton (if we sign him to another year), and chandler i feel pretty good about the interior OL heading into next year. not great, but good.

 

if we can focus on OT, WR, and CB i think we'll be good for this year.
