I'd hate to see us pass up a chance build a solid O-line in hopes that one of those question marks "can handle the job".
Isn't this one of the most discouraging developments of this team - collapse of what many felt, was a premier OL? Replace Newton with Robinson or Matthews problem solved with a foundation piece moving forward the next 10+ years. Then which ever QB O'Brian wants to develop has a solid blocking scheme, premier running attack & tools needed to succeed. There is no disgrace, or precedent taking OT with the first overall pick either. Good chance if Texans did select Robinson, St. Louis picking #2 take Matthews, that's picks #1 & #2 overall taking OT, just like last draft Fisher/Joeckel.
