Any draft pick is going to have growing pains. Maybe if we trade down to the mid to later first round to get Baas. but other than that i dont see anyone else providing results in 2005.

our best bet to fix the O-line in 2005 is free agency. Good chance Walter Jones might hit the market, I'd sign a top flight tackle. as good as Wand has been, he isn't Orlando Pace or Walter Jones. Put them on the side, and Wand backing them up and we have a pretty solid line.

Otherwise someone like Baron, even if he falls to us, will have growning pains and will not help the line.

Free agent interior lineman are too costly, if you can get a good deal its worth it, but deals like the ones Miami games Jeno James last year are just a recipe for disaster, i believe interior lineman are drafted, not signed as free agents cause they cause cap dilema.
