Hopefully that's what the Texans do on the line.

That's what they did in Denver. I know people talk about their RBs from that Shanahan/Kubiak era, but they had an OL factory going on down there. At least while Kubiak was there. They had the occasional first rounder playing on the line, but usually it was a 5th, 6th, or even UDFA starting on their line. Then they'd move one guy in after another & not miss a beat.

Surely our "factory" hasn't reached that level of production yet, as there are drops in production when we replace guys & it appears we use a rotation to get them up to speed.

But soon, I'm hoping we'll fill the pipeline & we can count on excellent OL play year after year, injury or no.
