I wouldn't mind him. He's a little older, but he can't do any worse than McKinney at center last year.

ESPN has him ranked at 7 among all centers.

If we get Flanagan, does that mean the Texans will pass on Mangold, if he's still available with out next pick.

probably...they would project him to start over Hodgdon I assume. No way we would go with 3 centers on the roster.

Maybe Hogdon will play guard and they will select Mangold to learn under Flanagan? just speculation of course.

I would think they would keep Hodgdon at C and move Mangold to G if anything, I wouldn't be opposed to still getting Mangold in that situation, but I'm not sure I see the Texans doing that. It sounds like they really like Chris Chester, the C/G out of Oklahoma, and I would love to see him in our zone blocking scheme after his impressive Combine, and it sounds like he impressed at his pro day too. The combination of liking Chester, signing McKinney, and maybe signing Flanagan would likely rule out Mangold.

I would flip that around and let Hogdon learn from Flanagan and let Mangold play guard. If this did happen I would look at LB's in the second round Thomas Howard, Ernie Sims, and Abdul Hodges.

yeah i would think so if we signed flanagan then hodgdon would be the primary back-up and there would be no need to draft mangold...flanagan is like 32 or 33 yrs old he would give drew adequate time to develop and in 2-3 years be able to take the starting job with a smooth transition

But we could draft Mangold to play backup guard for a year or two.

That would depend on whether you think Mangold could play guard. Also, while Hodgdon started 4 games, he was a 5th round pick and has done nothing to preclude the Texans from taking another interior OLman.

Sherman is o line coach, right?

This has his fingerprints all over it, which is fine with me. One of the great things about acquiring other teams' coaches is that they have the inside scoop on at least "their" players and if they would make a nice fit with us.

At this point, I think it's a pretty good bet that with the addition of a great run blocking FB and the very possible addition of a veteran C in Flanagan, we're looking at drafting Reggie Bush. Or, trading and grabbing 'Brick for what could be a pretty decent o line for a change.

There's no way we're drafting Vince Young, guys and gals

we might not draft vince young, but it wouldn't have anything to do with upgrading at center and fb, regardless of who is playing at rb we want the blocking to be good.

I like the prospect of Flanagan being here. Finally something that makes sense.

So if we drafted Vince Young, we wouldn't want to upgrade the interior of the line and the fullback position?

As the above poster said, we might not select Vince Young, but these signings have nothing to do with that.

Default So we didn't sign Flanagan? :(

Looks like we went 3 for 4 today. I hope it is only because Flanagan wants to see every option before making his final decision. Not because he doesn't want to be a Texan.

I don't know if it necessarily means we aren't going to get him, but I don't really know why we'd sign a 32-year old OLineman anyways, we'd probably end up overpaying him like we've done with the rest of our OLinemen. I'd prefer to have Hodgdon and look for Mangold or Eslinger in the draft than overpay an aging veteran (hopefully we're looking at Chris Chester in the 4th-5th round anyways, he played C in college and could be a C or G for us, and would be a great fit in our zone blocking scheme).

I like him at center, even if we overpay (just a little though) for his services. Didn't he take over the LT spot for Green Bay when Chad Clifton got blindsided by Sapp few years ago? I might be mixing up the players but if its true then he is versatile also. (Edit: Clifton took over the Center spot when Flanagan was injured[see below], not sure about Flanagan playing T. Probably didn't happen but I can't comfirm it). From the Packers site:

Quote:
# Had season-ending surgery Oct. 7, 2004, to alleviate recurring knee tendinitis after the level of pain became unmanageable for him. Though the decision to undergo surgery limited him to three regular-season games a year ago, it also likely prevented him from suffering a more serious, career-threatening injury down the line
# Overcoming the long shadow of injury early in his professional career, had built a games-played streak of 82 (87 counting playoffs) prior to having his 2004 season cut short by knee tendinitis issue
# During the 2001-03 seasons when he was an every-game starter, Green Bay allowed an NFL-low 68 sacks. Culminated that successful three-year stretch by making his first Pro Bowl following the 03 campaign the first Packers center to be named to the all-star squad since 1996
# Had current Packers head coach Mike Sherman as his offensive line coach for one season (1994) at UCLA
