I don't like this thinking. The right side was a weakness, so we'll put a rookie in at that spot?
It wasn't a talent issue, you can look at Newton & see he has the talent to play RT. It was an inexperience & having to deal with inexperience on his left as well.
I'm all for improving the pedigree of our OL, don't get me wrong. I just don't like the reason given for going with a RT. Give me a 1st rounder on the OL who expects to win & I'm all for it.
But think Duane Brown's rookie year before you start thinking all our problems are cured.
Other than that, I like your mock & your thought process.
