We have several players that have the ability to play multiple positions. With th players on this roster what would be your ideal line up?

Mine, at least to start the season with Christensen moving out to LT later.

LT  Scott

LG Christensen

C Paradis

RG Brown

RT Moton

Ideally?

Christensen Brown Paradis Moore Moton

Because that will mean 3 rookies EARNED the starting jobs over vets and still have room to grow and build chemistry for the next 3+ years.

Imagine CMC running behind that right side.

LT Christensen - Erving may start game 1 here if Brady doesn't have a strong preseason

LG Elfein - In the Darnold highlights from last year, Elfein stood out to me, plus there's familiarity with Sam

C Paradis - played well last year and Elfein is his only real competition

RG Miller- player well last year and will keep the right side of the line gelled from last season

RT Moton - Duh

This is my best guess and my reasoning. Obviously both guard positions are completely up in the air with 2 rookies and 2 FA's brought in that play guard, plus several returning guys (Daley & Miller).  I think/hope the plan is to get Christensen to LT ASAP, but he's in the guard race as well if he can't beat out Erving and Scott.

Agree, ideally the rookies have higher ceilings than the vets who’ve established their ceilings.

Also, I think I would rather have Moore on the left. I’d be concerned about Brown helping a fellow rookie. I remember how much Norwell helped the LTs and unless he shows it, Brown is not reaching out quick enough to help Christensen on pass plays. IIRC, Moore had solid athletic scores. I’m still really not convinced about Brown although taking him in the 6th makes it way less risky.

If Brown and Moore ended up starting at guard and Christensen at LT would give us 3 rookies as our starters.   Sign Moton to a long term deal.  We have 4 of the 5 O-line positions address for the next 4 years.

Throw in Tremble blocking from the TE or FB position our running game would be amazing.

We aren’t keeping 11. Honestly, I’d be surprised if we keep more than 9 on the active roster considering how much flexibility we have. I think Little and Daley are on the chopping block. Scott showed his value at LT and he came due to the new coaches unlike the other two.

Daley had his moments last year and his ability to play multiple position makes me believe he'll make the team.   

Little, IMO, is odd man out. 

I also think that Tremble could fill 2 positions (TE and FB) giving us the opportunity to keep 10 O-line me.

My ideal OL definitely doesn't exist with our roster. 

I think it will end up:

LT: Scott/Christensen/Erving

LG: Elflein/Erving/Moore

Center: Paradis

RG: Miller

RT: Moton

I think the left side will be rotating players most of the season in an attempt to find "the guy."

This is the correct answer, IMO. I do think at some point one of Daley, Brown or Moore takes over at guard later this season. I also hope the team takes a hard look at Moore as a backup C for Paradis. Not sure if he can be a true NFL center, but he did flex at the position at the Sr. Bowl in front of Rhule.

Eventually, I could see a Christensen-Daley-Moore-Brown-Moton future OL

If we keep 9, then you cut John Miller and maybe trade away Little. Daley, Elflein and Erving have the abilities to play more than one spot. 

Calling WFT... Hey Marty got a deal for you.
