    There's scarcity at impact defensive players. I'd like to solidify the offensive line first as well and target some of the players above.

    I think Robinson goes ahead of Bolles; he had huge audience every week and played for #1 college team all season. He is not bad just not exciting to me. I would not spend much time on his dropping before combine. It was hard for me to agree with others on Ram as I just did not see him doing more than just getting by. On edge rushers, Ram barely kept up following opponent back to QB in pocket. Most rate him high technically but I did not see that; he only has one year under his belt as does Bolles so both should get better. I am very leery of players with serious injuries in their history (why I'm not high on TJ Watt despite a great 2016).Garcia I did not watch so have only others opinions + film. I would go Davenport over Garcia. I support and have mocked two OTs this draft but am changing on that. As much as I cringe at D Browns health and he turns 32 this August, I am hopeful he will be serviceable one more season. I keep looking at the $9.7 million cap we can use if he is gone..but only if a better replacement is available. A college LT drafted to play RT 2017 then moving to replace DB perhaps is way to go. We would then have to draft RT in 2018.

    Philly's Wentz may spend off season in owner's ear screaming for line help. LT is 35 & $11.5 m cap cost '17 & '18. RT Lane Johnson coming off 10 game suspension is just a performance-enhancing drug away from being out of NFL. (2014 he had 4 g "time out"). I could see them selecting Robinson or Ram round one then more options in second selecting WR.

    Not sure if you are labeling all D players or just the line; either way I think you are wrong on impact guys. OLBs McKinley, Tim Williams and Reddick; ILBs McMillan, Jarrad Davis, Anthony Walker & if healed Washington's Azeem Walker. DTs Caleb Brantley, Carlos Watkins, Alabama's Tomlinson, Montravius Adams, Jarron Jones (possible 4th rounder). DEs Taco Charlton, Demarcus Walker, Hunter Dimick and Daeshon Hall.

    If wanted we could draft four of these rounds 1 thru 4. I do agree we should solidify Oline but that can be done. Wonder if we have better options for Oline in free agency than last off season?

    Last offseason you had guys like Osemele, Brandon Brooks and Alex Mack available on the interior. Not sure but was Donald Penn a free agent last offseason?

    FA tackle is pretty slim pickings, Rick Wagner, Andrew Whitworth, are the two players, Whitworth is 35 and plays left tackle, Wagner is the choice but he will cost around 9-10M a year. There are some lesser guys like Reily Reif, Kalil. At guard however, there are a lot of studs available Zeitler, Leary, TJ Lang, Warford, all guys who can play and will command high dollars.

    With Robinson falling (I still have him being selected before Texans)Ram seems to be ranked first among OTs despite his surgery [see link below]. I know his surgery was Jan 5th and supposedly not as bad as it could have been. Still, "abnormal wearing" in hip joint of a 310+ lb. NFL OT is very much a concern and one I hope we don't have to experience. CBSsports.com Rang and Brugler have Denver taking Ram at #20 as first LT drafted which is great for my board. Also, Rang has Robinson to us. Mayock has him as 2nd best OG which I can see. IMO, Cam Robinson has little ceiling so what you see is what you get. I'm still mocking Bolles #25.
