All of our first rounders under Kubiak have sounded like reaches and were a bit of a gamble. Mario has paid off. The jury is still out on Amobi and Brown. The fact is that Maybin has the potential to be what we need.
I'm not sure why you'd rather draft a TE or an OG who probably wouldn't fit very well in a zone scheme in the first. We do run quite a few dual TE sets, but I don't think it's enough to warrant a 1st round pick, especially when there are plenty of developmental guys later.
