Examples: QB Zach Dysert, CB Justin Gilbert, OT Ricky Wagner, and if he can stay on the team RB Christine Michael.
Hopefully, Holmes will slip out of minds and fall to us.
I have 2 other concerns regarding Khaled Holmes. He's got perfect size for C but at 305 lbs. he's light for an OG if your wanting him to do dual duty at OG and we already have Ben Jones as depth at C. I guess at 6'04" he's got the frame to add a few pounds without losing athleticism though. Also if your looking for someone to do dual duty on the O-line, which I completely agree with, I'd rather have someone that's OT/OG. I think Rick Wagner is plenty fast to play RT in the NFL, he's played some LT in college. Even if he did turn out to be to slow for RT he'd probably be a stud OG in our system with his athleticism, thus he could be starting RT or starting OG if needed. I also like Alvin Bailey, Dallas Thomas, Gabe Jackson, and Braden Hansen if your looking for a later round OG.
Does the 2013 draft seem to be pretty talent rich/deep to you? I don't like the depth at TE but other than that this seems like it's going to be a very good draft with good talent down into the 3rd-4th round.
