I'm not in love with any of these guys & don't think they are any more likely to be successfull than guys like Taj Boyd, Zach Mettenberger, & Aj McCarron (<- yes, some people have taken him completely off their board, but I like what I see).

2nd, If I think Jake Matthews, Greg Robinson, or Taylor Lewan have the potential to be a franchise LT, I'm drafting one of them with the 1-1 if I'm not able to negotiate a trade that I really like. I'm not drafting him to play RT, even though he may start there as a rookie (not likely if I think he has what it takes to be a franchise LT, but he might), I'm drafting a LT. If that means that Gary's OT with the fat paycheck gets paid a lot more than the average RT... so be it. The line as a whole would be better. Much, much, on another level better.

3rd, I don't think we're going to get Crennel

4th, I think Clowney would make an awesome 3-4 OLB but I'm not drafting an OLB with the #1 overall.
That last one sounds suspiciously like the reasoning for drafting Carr over Peppers in year #1.
