    Did Wade Smith retire? Can he play right tackle? What am I missing here?

    O-line was a major problem last year that hindered anything we wanted to do. I like this.

    I liked our starters on the left side when healthy. Duane Brown had lingering health issues and we had no running game. Right tackle was problematic all season. I guess Wade Smith is old so they needed some young blood.

    Beef up the trenches. That is always a good thing to me. Especially on the O line.

    Wade was a major weakness last year and his contract expired.

    Injured DB was covering for Wade last season.

    Thank goodness. We need more offensive linemen, too. Just load the ****in' thing. Our OL was the biggest reason this team was a disaster last year.

    I like it. Always great to improve the O-Line, especially when it sucked last season. But what does the pick mean? Will we try him at RT? Or does that mean we want to play Quessenberry at RT?

    D. Brown
    Filo
    Myers
    Brooks
    Quessenberry


    That looks like a pretty good O-line. I am sure Foster is happy right now.

    Too hard to type his surname. Hate the pick.

    Seriously though, solid pick - big and mobile.

    Time to find someone for him to protect now.

    I agree completely. This strategy has me stoked.

    I read up on this guy after Vinny mentioned him earlier today. I know if Vinny is big on someone, there is definitely something good going on. Liked what I read, and this really shows the mentality of this coaching staff to dominate the LOS.
