To compete for championships, the O line has to get better and be able to move and score tds against the best Defenses. Adding two very good OL to just that.
Like I said , I wouldnt mind using two of the top three picks on the OL , just not #'s 1 and 2 consecutively.
I really dont see them drafting an OT to replace Winston .... He's had a few forgettable moments but has been solid for the most part , especially run blocking.
I can see taking an OG ....

WR is a concern, but OL is a bigger one in my mind. I actually see the Texans getting a pretty good receiver in FA.

This team is going to be cash strapped trying to fit their current players in under tha cap and will likely have to make some surprise cuts (Leinart, J.Jones) to get it done.
What FA WR's would be available that would come at a price allowing them some room under the cap?

And he tore his ACL which usually requires 7-9 months to be ready to go. Surgery was in mid November so he will be ready to go by July or September, so he will not be running at the combine or his pro day. That said, I would take a chance on him. He has been a very dependable receiver at OU and has never had major injury concerns before.
With a window of July to Sept I have to wonder if he (Broyles) might drop further than the 3rd round. Not being able to step on the field until Sept .... He may not contribute at all next season. That could really push him down ... to round 4 or even 5?
If he hadnt gotten hurt he was easily a late first round talent .... Just dont know where he ends up.
