Brown-Studdard- New Guy or Myers- Brisiel or Caldwell or Johnson- Eric.
And the other thing is Johnson's 5.4 forty. We got no lineman that slow. None. Unless we're switching once again and abandoning the ZBS ? I like Johnson but he is a poor choice for this scheme.
There is no magic button to get us out of the "cellar" but drafting a talented guard from a program like Alamaba can only help.
With Brisel coming back, Pitts maybe coming back, Mike Johnson, and our FA acquisiton, we should be able to form a decent line with good depth.
Plus I think a bigger guy like Dixon should be able to smash through on some 3rd and shorts. He is a guy who will punish defenders if they give him the chance.
