We are now picking top 10. Michael Oher slips to us. Early in the 2nd round we get lucky and get a top Center like Alex Mack.
THis is close to my dream draft. Im holding out hope our OL will look like this
Either of those would complete our OL for many years and help Schaub continue to grow as a QB by giving him the protection he needs. Also would improve our running game. Because the middle is stronger we should imprve in short yardage and red zone situations. Better protection means less turnovers. Controling the LOS wears opposing Defenses down and keeps our D fresh.
