RT will not make the biggest impact. Not even Manning or Brady have 2 1st round picks at OT. And they are worth that investment. First things first. Get a QB worth protecting.
If there's no franchise QB in the draft, why NOT create the strongest line possible? That way, our less-than-stellar QBs can do better work. AND when we do get our Franchise guy (assuming that we will), he won't get killed because of a porous line.
Manning and Brady don't NEED 2 1st round picks at OT. We don't have Manning or Brady and we're not going to get either of them in this draft. Ryan Fitzpatrick, otoh, could really use 2 1st round picks at OT.
I don't see a QB in this draft that's worth protecting. At least, not without a whole lot of development.
