There should be some real good LG/RT talent in rds 3-4. If Ques (Likely) and/or Williams make it back, (Unlikely) then the OL just needs depth.
If Williams doesn't make it back I could see Quessenberry playing RT and the Texans drafting an OG in rd 4-5 and Rick signing a vet minimum OG. depth will still be an issue. But no more of an issue than the current Rick/Gary regime.
Thanks for showing some Carrethers highlights. I dont think he makes it to the end of rd2. He's this yrs Brandon Williams. Williams has been getting PT with the Ravens, he's the reason they cut Spears yesterday. The Ravens have alot of depth on their DL. I wish I could say that about the Texans.
Yeah I was big fan of Brandon Williams especially after he dropped some flab. If Q shifts to RT who plays left guard? IMO no OG starting material in 3rd or later. Georgia's Burnett is more of a run blocker with slow lateral slides. I like Brandon Thomas more since he slid over from LT but needs lots of work and not a starter yet.
Tackles to convert do not look good either after second round. I'd probably skip to 5th and select Austin Wentworth. So...you have to go second round to get a replacement for Wade Smith or hope a solid FA can be found on the cheap.
