OL #1 pick

How about going OT in #1. Dump gandy and give it to Bentley. That to me makes more sense the more i think about it. Talk about a boost. two tackles and a center all probowl caliber and sprinkle it with a vet center and/or G then dump merryberryand his $$$ and give it Holland. If the IR returnies can play next year and pick up some more youth in the draft. Aa lot of average backs could gain 1000+ yards and a so so QB can eat lunch while making his reads. HMMM i have joked about it but i am close to jumping of the AJ bandwagon.

RE: OL #1 pick

i would be happy with dropping down a few spots to draft ferguson. my first choice is still to draft leinart with the first pick, but trading down and getting ferguson or hawk would be alright with me.

With Denver it's all about scheme. They have good linemen, but they can make up for not having great linemen with their great zone running schemes

You can draft a lineman in the first round. I just keep getting visions of Tony Manderich tho. History's shown you can get a few quality front line beefers in the 3rd and successive rounds and not waste the early picks, Skill positions go fast in the early rounds.

RE: OL #1 pick

Every position has its "history" of bad picks, thats why the lesser teams get better picks, so they take the "smart" choices. I like D'Brickshaw and him and Brown with Bentley, and maybe draft Jean-Gilles in the second (get an extra 2nd pick with the move down). A solid offensive line would do wonders for our team. With all being less than 25 (Bentley dunno his age), we would have a KC type O-Line.

RE: OL #1 pick

The reason I'd rather us not get a QB with our first pic is soley because we have to many area's of need. A QB isn't going to fix out line and that is the first area that you SHOULD address in building a team not the QB. If you don't have a line to protect are even block for your RB you aren't going anywheres.

I'm not completely sold on ferguson. Instead, i like the guy from auburn, McNeil.

Plus he considered the most Pro-Ready player, and I live in VA and have seen his damage. He has a mean streak which he could bring to our team.
