Offensive Tackle draft rankings

Agreed. I also think it's a lot easier to find serviceable DTs than it is serviceable OTs. We're stuck with KK for at least another year or two due to that restructure, so go get a poor man's Star to pair with him in Leki Fotu in the 3rd.

Yea I've been seeing Fotu's name a lot and honestly our defense really isnt one player away from being a top tier unit anyways. As good as Brown is unless he comes in and is AS good as Aaron Donald hes not going to mask all of the other holes along the front 7 and secondary.

Now if we bring in a solid LT and use Little as that 6th lineman that "swing" tackle I think it'd be beneficial. Gives Little more time to grow accustomed to the game and honestly who knows what's going to happen with Moton and his contract extension. Olineman get injured and rarely do you see a starting 5 start and finish the season together playing 100% of the snaps. That's one of the most important position groups to have solid depth at.

That's the other thing people tend to forget. Moton is going into the last year of his contract. Who knows if he'll be here long-term? Little could potentially move to LG this coming year and/or RT the next season. I don't think it has to be LT or bust for Greg Little.

If we can't snag Thomas in the first, I'd take Brown and hope Jones is there in the 2nd, with a Center prospect third.

You need a great offense to win .  First it gets their defense tired and it keeps their offense off the field .  If you have a great defense and a so so offense you will lose .  You have to score points to win .  Put your effort in building up the O-line first , then the defense .

We are not taking an OT in the 1st or even 2nd round. I would bet the house on that. 

Don’t want to poo you, but you better be wrong

We need KK to come back strong...Poe sucks, he stays only if we have no alternative

Our first pick will be OL. With KK and hopefully Gerald McCoy there I'd bet we aren't going to bet the bank on a DT that won't be an immediate starter.

CB, WR ... no way we pick one as the first pick in the draft.

LB will be our first pick next season.

McCoy isn’t staying. He wants to play in the play offs at least once in his career.

I'm betting on DT as well.

I want Thomas or Derrick Brown, either line has to get better.

I don't want Jeudy because I think there re bigger needs.

Justin Herbert is the guy I don't want in any way shape or form, I don't think he'll be good in the NFL.

I feel bad for McCoy. Talented player who works hard. Smart, class act. Does everything you could want and even stays loyal to the team that drafted him until it’s obvious they won’t be winning during his career.  Comes here to play with Cam thinking he’s joining a winner and then we immediately fall apart. I mean I know the dude is a highly paid athlete and his life doesn’t exactly suck, but in that sense seems like he can’t catch a break.

Hope he lands somewhere great next.

Yeah, chose us over Baltimore. Sucks.

We could always use an upgrade at LT but when they invested in a 2nd round pick (moved up to get) just last year and with Daley, I don't see it this year for the 1st round. Do they get one in the 2nd or 3rd, maybe. By Simmons or Brown unless they trade back little, which I really think is a possibility. They are not looking to be good next year. They want to be great a couple of years from now.

The only two DTs currently under contract are on the wrong side of 30 and coming off of season ending injuries. That ain't good. I think we'll draft at least one and sign at least one FA. When all is said and done, I wouldn't be surprised if Poe is cut. I'll be surprised if McCoy is brought back.

Poe had underperformed in his role for what he is being paid unfortunately. The #1 need on this team at the moment is DT and it isn't close. We might even need a FA DT or 2.

There's concerns about Andrew Thomas in pass protection

I would much rather have a LT who excels at pass protection over the run game.

Run downs Burns-Brown-KK-Horton/another FA runs stopping DE.

Pass downs Burns-KK-McCoy-Brown.

Dream front 4.

Must see the combine before even looking at LTs, they must be athletic freaks even if raw because these speed rushers eat tackles this day and time.
