Building an OL

Recommended Posts

So here is where we are at, we have Kalil and Silatolu that will be obvious starters.

 

So we have this

 

Nobody-Nobody-Kilil-Silatolu-Nobody

 

Backups: 

 

77 Bell, Byron 
74 Bond, Travis 
73 Campbell, Bruce
65 Williams, Garry  
Hughes, Kevin 
Johnson, Oscar 
McDonald, Andrew 
Edmund Kugbila
Using our Bench, the Draft and FA lets build a realistic 2014 Starting OL.

Byron Bell, whether he is the future or not is a three year starter. If he is retained he will likely be the starter unless unseated.

You left out our 4th round pick from last year. 

The guy is easy to forget.

Collins-Silatolu-Kalil-Jackson-Hurst

Pretty scary having two rookies on the right side but that's a solid OL for years to come.

While I'd like to upgrade RT, we may have to push that to next season as LT is the much bigger concern.

I like Amini, but I don't trust him to stay healthy. I really liked what Chandler was able to do in the fly and think he will only get better. So, that leaves us with LT and LG.

I think we have to take OT in the draft early (rounds 1-3) and can find a good enough LG to get us by. There are some very good G prospects in the draft this season. As much as I want to improve the skill positions on offense I am a firm believer that the games are own and lost at the line of scrimmage.

(releasing Godfrey and Edwards and restructure more contracts)

 

LT: Michael Oher

LG: Silatolu

C: Kalil

RG: Kugbilla (although puting faith in Kugbilla scares me)

RT: Geoff Schwartz

 

If Kugbilla doesn't pan out this year we slide Schwartz to RG and put James Hurst (3-4th round pick) at RT.

I think folks are over reacting saying we have no one.  First off Garry Williams was projected as our starter until he got hurt and went on IR.  Amini was doing well until he got hurt as well.  So if you project Kalil, Amini and Williams as starters with Bell not doing great but surely he helped us go 12-4, then replacing Gross is the biggest issue. I can almost guarantee that we will bring in 1 or 2 tackles in free agency.  Then we will likely draft 1 or 2 O linemen as well.  With Kugbila, and Chandler as backups and whoever we want to include off the practice squad or keep from last year, we won't be nearly as bad as some predict. I know Gettleman will do the same thing he did with the offensive line that he did with the defensive line except we will actually have a free agency period where we can sign folks.  Last year we had to work hard just to get under the cap.

That's pretty much how I see it but I'm sensing we're going to bring Campbell back and he'll beat Bell for the RT position and Oher will come cheap.

I thought Rivera pretty much said Campbell was a better LT than he was a RT? I believe he said this when we first traded Goodson for him.
