    Food for thought...

    AFC SOUTH

    [​IMG]

    C Greg Mancz

    2016 snaps: 1120

    Key stat: Allowed just 18 total pressures across 1,120 snaps over the regular season.

    [​IMG]

    Another star of the PFF college grading, Mancz somehow went undrafted in 2015, but started last season for the Texans at center and had five perfect games of pass protection as well as grading solidly as a run-blocker over the year. His PFF grade of 84.2 was good enough to rank eighth in the NFL, higher than multiple Pro Bowl players. Mancz didn’t allow a sack or hit across two playoff games.

    This was his rookie season.
    Could have been special by his second season AT CENTER dammit.:facepalm:

    Disagree.
    Plenty of players from 2016 still on the roster.

    This is a tough question to answer. It all depends on who is there at #23 but I don't advocate them picking a RT in the 1st if there are better players available at other positions like CB or DE etc... But, at the same time, if that RT is the best available player, then yes, take him! Don't wait for an injured 3rd round LT that may, or may not, be there and may, or may not, be ready to play when the season starts. I guess I'm more of a "bird in the hand" guy in this situation!

    That injured LT you reference, would he be a real person, or just an example used for illustration ?
