I would hate to get stuck with a tackle with a huge contract, when the kid from Midland-Lee is coming out next year
I think that Eric is as good if not better than anyone coming out this year...
The draft info came from researching drafthistory.com
. The status of the players came from NFL.com
The franchise tag for o-linemen (average salary of the top 5) was about $7 million.
The transition tag for o-linemen (average salary of the top 10) was about $6 million.
I don't think a team can go into a draft and have decisions influenced by what player may be in the draft the following year. They have to take the best player for their team now.
