He would probably cost a kings ransom since the Patriots don't make bad trades.

Well, we didn't do too shabby sending Cooks for Ramczyk and moving our fourth into the late third to get DE Trey Hendrickson...

That's a rookie contract for another four, five counting option year, and gained a cornerstone franchise offensive tackle...

And I wouldn't have a problem taking a guard to shift Peat to Left Tackle full time or moving Ramczyk to Left Tackle...

A Left Guard or a Right Tackle would be easier to replace than the vaunted Left Tackle position that we trade Mr. Glass (Armstead)...

With that being said, it wouldn't surprise me to see the Saints FO pick an O lineman (center/guard) early.

Price ... only because of where he played his college ball.

Even with the injury, this guy is possibly gone by round 2. If he falls to Day 3, that's a golden pick.

Me, too. C/G would be nice since Bushrod is a short-time fix.

Why not Price who was 1st round (higher than 27) before his pec injury at the Combine.

Who cares about that injury if we lock down a OG then (after Unger) a Center for a decade?

I prefer Ragnow in the second round, but I'd be happy with Price - though we'd have a serious Buckeye clique in the locker room...

Maybe Payton is securing a job in the event Ohio St. Head Coach Urban Meyer is feeling the need to retire again...
