    What are our options?

    If we invest our 1st rounder on a QB, what's it look like in the second?

    Any interesting FAs coming up?

    Brennan & Quiz.... are they in the mix?

    If we go with Clowney, I take a second round OT and a third round QB, swapping 3rd and 2nd as necessary. If we go with Bridgewater, I'd like to trade up and grab Brandon Schefft if he's not falling to the #33 spot.

    I believe (hope) the zone blocking scheme used now is history with our next head coach.

    I take Bridgewater in the first. If there isn't a OT/OG they like in the 2nd or even 3rd hit the D, then let Quesenberry battle it out with Williams I personally like Ques to win a starting spot next yr. here is a link for top olineman FA's next yr.

    The inclusion of wade smith in that link causes distrust on my part.

    Doc seems to think we'd be foolish to rely on Brennan hitting anywhere near his potential given his injury.

    I like the idea of quiz to take over at LG, and draft another RT, who can swing, if he gets beat out by Harris then we have our swing so we aren't reliant on Harris to backup brown at LT.

    I'm a little worried about Myers at C in anything other than a zone scheme, he doesn't take on DL in our scheme he's all about the second level which may cause huge issues, worried he could look just like he did the forst couple of years after he became the starter.

    Is Ben jones really an option at C? Not sure we've seen much of him at that position and thought he was only so-so at guard last season and obv got beaten out this year.

    Going back to wade smith, I believe he has a reasonable cap hit which were offloading this offseason which might make us a player in FA on the oline.

    That will always haunt me with Myers. That was painful to watch.

    For me the 1st pick would be Clowney

    2nd QB

    3rd OT Morgan Moses.

    This is what I posted in the thread about the PFF offensive line ratings.

    I think Duane Brown will be ready for RT in a couple of years. We'll take a guard in 2 or 3 depending on draft depth.

    Myers could be Superbowl MVP and still never live down that moment. It ranks up there with Rosencopter despite being way less consequential.

    I'm with you Wade Smith is gone after this yr and maybe Meyers. I was upset with the Williams Pick due to his injury history, I personally like Jones if we put him at C. The oline for me would be Dbo,Jones,Meyers,Brooks,Ques if we didn't get a olineman in the draft. If we do I put the oline as Dbo,Ques,Jones,Brooks,Rookie.

    Why not draft the highest rated OG in the 2nd and keep Ques at RT?

    That's what I want to do draft Teddy put Ques at RT. I believe that will happen and we get a G to replace Smith in the 2nd or maybe trade back into the first rnd for Antonio Richardson for RT.

    We aren't going to draft a right tackle in the top 5 over a franchise QB or blue-chip pass rusher.

    Everything depends on who the next OC is...

    If we switch from ZBS there will be significant turnover.

    On performance alone, we need a new LG & RT.

    Quessenberry can play, but he has to adjust his body. I'm not sure he's more than a G, though.

    I just don't know about Brennan Williams. He may be too injured. He may want to go straight to WWF?

    Not to mention going right back and picking more o line in 2 or 3. The o line needs some addressing but we've got way more pressing needs on defense.

    Move quessenberry to LG, and draft future RT at 2.1 & hope brennan williams is healthy enough to compete for RT w the new 2nd round rookie.

    This draft is verrrrrrrry deep in Tackles, so we can get a real good one 2.1

    Trade down all the way out of the first round, and get a boatload of seconds.

    I'm sick of hearing this "we've got way too much talent" blah blah.
