How Would You Feel About Drafting Oline in R1 Now That We've Got Paradis and D.Williams?

Recommended Posts

I'm curious about how you guys feel about this. I've lately been going through quite a few mocks and most of them have the premier Dline talent flying off the board before pick 16. That leaves us pretty much with several options but most mocks have us selecting Oline. 

I think I'd like this. We've seen how this team gets shredded once we have 1 or 2 Oline go down so.. Honestly I'm willing to wait another year to find a long term solution to our pass rush if it means completely beefing up the Oline and having a dominant road grinding big men that don't let anyone even sniff Cam in the pocket. 

Here's my most recent mock as an example with 2 olinemen in the first 3 picks. In this mock a bunch of DEs all flew off before our pick as per usual. What say you?

Not seeing the Tackle value at 16.  Rounds 2-7 sure.  1st is gonna be D

in this senario all the premier defenders were gone . Literally 2 QBs and all defense before 16

I understand.  Ive been on that thing more than I care to admit.  IRL I just don't see the value of OT at 16.  G?  maybe.  S/CB/DT could all be better at 16.

We do not have a starting right tackle in 1 year. If Moton moves back to RT then we do not have a starting left tackle in 1 year. Grooming someone to come in would be much better than signing Matt Kalil next summer for $60M.

I've been going back and forth. Basically in Round 1 my choice would be in the following order assuming Sweat and Oliver are off the board. 

1. Burns - has jumped to my number one. I would probably even take over Sweat.

2. Jonah Williams - he can start as guard and move to left tackle or stay guard

3. Gary- I think he drops but is still behind the other 2.

I would if the DE you want doesn't fall to us. There's no guarantee Moton or Williams doesn't get hurt. And If he was that good, Moton could play LG and that's an upgrade or there's a 1st rd rated OT/OG that might be worth it (Cody Ford) that maybe we move a few spots back and get and pick up another 3rd.  I actually think this is a smarter move if who they really want is gone..

As much as I like Jonah, If most of the superior D lineman are gone I think it would be foolish not to draft the best CB or Safety in the draft as we still need more depth and have a lot of question marks in our secondary.

I'd feel super great about it. Go rewatch Cam getting pummeled a few times and you will feel great about it too

Cam and the other two QBs 

the owner said what he wanted and he writes the checks 

Hard to believe the people putting so much faith in two linemen coming off injury

If the DL is all gone by 16 you absolutely have to go OL. There are guys capable of being franchise OTs at that spot, and this is the best spot we've had to get a good one a in a while.
