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.

You left out our 4th round pick from last year. And Silatolu is a guard.

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.

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.

Collins-Silatolu-Kalil-Bell-Moses

Slide Bell inside and use FA and draft for new tackles. Depth at both positions.

(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.

Status of Nate Chandler? He wasn't doing half bad for a project

Wouldn't count on Kugbilla. He missed all last year and was considered a project coming out.
