Where does our O-Line go from here?

Recommended Posts

While I think that DE is our biggest, glaring need, and you get those in the draft...I am intrigued by the possibility that we're one drafted player away from having an all pro offensive line at every position.

What I like about this crop of the best OTs, is their versatility. I think our Plan A is most likely experimenting with Moton as our LT with Williams on the RT. If say we pick any of these OT (Jonah Williams, Dillard, Jawaan Tayor), we can kick them inside for the time being. If Moton blows as LT, we can experiment with our LT prospect and place Moton back inside. (Moton played a few years as LG in Western Michigan).

If Daryl Williams proves his worth and becomes too expensive. We put Moton back to his RT spot.

I think we will still take an OT pretty early. Daryl is only on a one year deal.

But overall I think we've set ourselves up pretty well to go edge rusher or DL at #16

if we can get Cajuste in the second then you have to go DE in the first, unless Hurney can get some serviceable guys to come in ahead of the draft.

I like everything I've read about Cajuste. His weaknesses seem to be fixable with good coaching, which we have here with Matsko.

I still think we are a two year rebuild. We'll be solid next year but need this draft and one more to get back to 10plus wins, imo.

We need a replacement for dwill when he leaves at OT, and some young depth at tackle. 

We need at least 2 edge rushers

Backup NG to replace Kyle love

Backup DT to replace butler

Depth at LB, may already have it. 

Slot CB 

FS, may already have it. 

Could use a stretch TE when Greg leaves as well. 

If we don't make any blunders it won't be a true rebuild, but the roster needs are aplenty. I love this time though, this is where you set the table for the future. Exciting times.

I think we go DL in round 1, which is why we are addressing the OL in free agency.   HOWEVER, if we draft a T to start, we better do it soon--this  is a terrible OT  draft.

I see a developmental LT later--someone like Max Scharping or Bobby Evans.  I think a year to develop--while Williams is playing out his 1-year deal--is smart.  We know Moton can play RT....

Do not be surprised to see a G drafted.  Lindstrom from BC is my favorite, but if Dalton Risner is there in the second somehow, you take him.

I see us going DL in the 1st. I don’t know why we’d pick Ford/Williams to be guards. There is a glut of developmental tackles like Scharping who probably would be as good as a guard (and have played there) but are available in ethe 3rd. There are also better tackles (Lindstrom) who will likely be 2nd rounders. Don’t waste 16 on a guy we think will make a great guard. Don’t draft guards and centers that early. Heck RT guys go later as well and we’re likely replacing Williams. 

That makes a lot of sense and maybe true. We'll find out which way we went soon enough.

If Lindstrom or Risner are there at 47, you take them. Heck, I’d trade next year’s 2nd to move up from round 3 to get both.

There is no way at 16 to know exactly who will be available but as mentioned above, Detroit and GB, two of the huge edge need teams paid a lot of money in FA to the point. I’d be shocked if they went edge early. I think we’ll go DL at 16 and Jonah Williams worries me. Ferrell seems to be dropping and he had a solid game against Jonah.  I’d rather risk lower draft capital in a DWill replacement.

Yep. Pick 16 is a lot different than pick 8. You just have to be ready for anything.

    • There was no sex trafficking going on...100% fake news. Who are you saying makes these "women think this is the only thing they can do"?  You do realize the place was run by some middle aged women, right? Do you care about "the truth"?  Doesn't appear to be the case... https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/prosecutors-concede-no-human-trafficking-in-kraft-spa-case/  
    • Where to begin.... So I like that we picked up with Jon clearly having killing Dany on his mind from the beginning of the episode until he finally did it. I love that tortured look of knowing what must be done because it is right and utterly refusing to accept it until the moment it is done because of his love for her. Great acting sold all of that well. The first half was super tense because of it. Also the visual of the throne being melted and what that represented for the entirety of the series. Just a great scene. Then we move along to the time jump (which we know is a few weeks thanks to Tyrion's monologue). I liked that whole scene as well...what I DIDN'T like was treating Jon the way they did. The Unsullied basically strong-armed them into exiling the actual hero of Westeros. He legitimately saved almost every major character and/or their people at some point in this show and certainly saved the entirety of the North by killing Dany. And to top that off, he's a better person than pretty much anybody at this point. And for his trouble, he gets exiled. Now, because he is a good man, he is exiled to go be with people who also love and adore and follow him. So while it is BS, at least it's not a true punishment beyond his choice in the matter being taken. I mean, he did CHOOSE to go to The Wall the first time around to prove himself. But dammit, he should be praised the land over for what he did. Everybody would be bending the knee to a genocidal maniac or be slaughtered by a genocidal maniac were it not for him. Everybody's roles in the new Six Kingdoms, sure. It is fitting. Sure, Bran becoming king is a tad unexpected. But the way he acted about Tyrion proposing it ("why do you think I came all this way?"). I mean, WHAT?! At no point did you ever suggest that the throne was your endgame but suddenly, once Jon kills Dany, you're all about being the king? The ending montage was cool. Sansa going from scared little bird to the Queen in the North is awesome. Arya doing her own thing under the Stark banner is cool (goes from feeling like she'll never fit into her family because she didn't want to be a lady, to renouncing her name to become a Faceless woMan, to reclaiming her name and finding her place within the family, just a great character arc). Jon being treated as basically the king of the Wildlings is awesome. Do wish we knew how much time had passed that they could rebuild the castle in King's Landing so quickly. Or repair Winterfell such that the great hall was so pristine. Or know if they fixed the gap in the Wall that the Night King came through or if they leave it as there are no longer any White Walkers and no threat North of the wall that we know of. I guess I am satisfied in the ending....but it left a bad taste in my mouth about Jon. I felt for him because it's almost a cautionary tale of what happens to good men who remain good. They end up eventually punished for doing the right thing.
