OL: high investment (Pitts 2nd, Brown 1st, Winston 3rd, Caldwell 3rd)
RB: sort of? (Slaton taken in bottom of 3rd, but no one expected franchise back)
DL: high investment (Mario 1st, Okoye 1st, TJ 1st, Babin 1st+, Weaver high dollar FA, Antonio Smith high dollar FA, Barwin 2nd) LOL, that's just sad.
LB: high investment (Demeco 2nd, Cushing 1st, Adibi 3rd?)
CB: high investment (Robinson 1st and $10 million, Reeves FA signing, Molden 3rd or 4th? iffy)
S: no one - ever
We hadn't taken a OL in the 1st round until last year so stranger things have happened.
And given the impact that Pollard made to the back 7, maybe they've learned that you can't keep getting DBs off the clearance rack and expect to win. We can only hope.
I wanna see stud OGs and DBs this draft. This draft is somewhat light in the RB dept.
