We of all fans know what happens when you draft a QB first overall and dont give him the kind of protection that can allow him to grow.
You know if they are smart/luck they could rebuild their Oline this year. They could grab Jason Smith or Eugene Monroe at #1, grab the top center in Alex Mack at 20, grab OG Duke Robinson at 33, and then hope Phil Loadholt drops into their first 3rd rounder. If not, they can grab Fenuki Tupou as their RT. Sure this is a bunch of rookies and they will make mistakes. Thats why they keep Orlovski and let him get the tar beaten out of him as this young line starts to gel. Then next draft they grab a QB and let him sit a year behind a Orlovski/FA veteran. That way when the new QB is ready to go, you already have a young OLine that has gelled and is ready to protect him.
