Default Strong O Line Prospects

There is going to be an infusion of talent on the offensive lines in the NFL next season. This is just the talent slated to go in the first or second round:

1. D'Brickishaw Ferguson OT
2. Alex Barron OT
3. Jammal Brown OT
4. Marcus McNeil OT
5. Johnathan Scott OT
6. Andrew Whitworth OT
7. David Baas OG
8. Marcus Johnson OG
9. Chris Colmer
10. Elton Brown

Just my opinion, but we NEED to look for another team looking to trade up and pick up a couple of extra, needed picks, then draft Jammal Brown OR Elton Brown. By my evaluation, Jammal Brown is....NASTY. He plays with such tenacity, and domination. If we dont get him and he becomes the next in the class of Johnathan Ogdan, Orlando Pace, Walter Jones,
(TONY BOSELLI)we will be kicking ourselves when he becomes an All Pro. Opinions?

I have heard that ferguson is going to stay and if that is the case, then that means barron is going to be gone by our pick. Jammal Brown is also projected as a right tackle since he doesn't have quick feet and he also had help playing with one of the best o lines in college football.

See, I think Wand will have a better year in 2005 and Wade is doing well on his side. Wand is still a project and was pushed into a starting spot this year, a year early. But what has Carr running for his life is our interrior line. McKinney and Pitts have shown nothing this season. It also wouldn't hurt to have quality back-ups otherwise we'll have more of the likes of Milford Brown to look forward to! OUCH!

I think Wand will be the starter at LT in 2005, unless we sign a FA LT, which I don't think will happen. A center in round 2 would be a good pickup for us IMO. I looked back at the 2004 draft and the first center was picked with the 13th pick of the 2nd round. I think we need a widebody NT in the first and a center in round 2. McKinney is our weakest link in the OL IMO. He may have to do for 2005 but we need his replacement.

To add to my thoughts on Wand; I think he will only be replaced via FA if our guys in charge don't think he is our LT of the future

I think Wand did okay...he might as well been a rookie this year, first year in the starting line-up, alot of inexperience but he did fine. Your right on McKinney. I don't really like him but I think Carr does and I feel that's why they haven't done something to improve the C position. I'll tell you this though, Carr won't like him for too long if he continues to anchor an offensive line that allows him to get sacked 50 times season!
