Current pff line grades. Jesus i wouldn't be upset with 3 or so OL selections in the draft. We only have 1 (Moton) starter quality OL on our roster. Yikes.

We're in a terrific position to build up our o-line with this draft. Our first pick could reasonably be the best LT in the draft, and our second pick could be the best OG prospect in Alijah Vera-Tucker. Building a great o-line will help us to properly evaluate Darnold, and he won't have the excuse of the o-line not protecting him. Protect Darnold and if dump him if he poops the bed this coming season.

I'll be happy with Sewell or Lance; Slater as a distant 3rd.  Anything else is going to be somewhat of a letdown.  If we take a skill position without a trade down, I'm throwing something at the TV.

Love Lance’s potential, but do you think we should get him at 8? I wouldn’t be upset with it just curious. My order is Sewell, Fields, and then maybe trade down? I need to watch more film of Slater something about him is throwing me off for the number 8 pick...

He has the most upside of the 'big 4'.   His biggest knock is his not ready to start now.  With Darnold here, he wouldn't have to AND we won't have to fall back on Teddy either.  Slater I'm okay with, just not at #8.  If we move back 3-4 spots and he's still there, I'm good with it.  I agree, I think he's a better athlete than a completely rounded OT.  Having two franchise QBs on rookie deals sets us up for big things in two years when Darnold is set to be a FA.  Most teams would be  jealous to be in such a situation.

I was really opposed to an OT with our first round pick, but now Darnold is here, It's right there at the top of the list.  If we do draft Sewell, I'll be very happy.

I like this too. But There is a good chance tucker might not make it to our second round pick. I like the idea of grabbing creed Humphrey in the second and playing him a guard this season and then he could slide over to center next year once we dump paradis. Slater and Humphrey are brickwall OL to me. O line instantly becomes a strength.

Where is he at??

Future FB, special teams players??

Likely a future first or second round LB. He was the Pac 12 freshmen DPOY last year. Reminds me of Rey Maualuga.

I know we need at least a left tackle and guard in this draft and I wouldn't be upset if we drafted a second guard or center as well. Give me sewell or slater in the first, ben cleveland or Quinn meinerz in the 2nd or 3rd would prefer both. Others to look at if sewell and slater are gone draft radunz in the 2nd. Also mid t late round interior lineman trey hill, jack anderson, david moore, deonte brown

Hopefully Verge says differently, but I just don't think we have much of a shot here at Sewell. I just can't see 7 teams passing on this guy. How often do you see this talented and NFL ready LT's? I will be ecstatic if we some how land Sewell.

Yes, we need OL, but if you look at the DB situation, we are not in a good, long-term place.   We need to draft a DB or 2 as well--30+ year old CBs,  Jackson in a contract year---Burris, Franklin, and Robinson at S (when Chinn is at LB)....

It seems pretty settled--we are fairly certain that 4 QBs go before us, a LT, Pitts, and maybe Chase.
