never to early to get a OG/OT in shape to step in. our starter aint getting any younger.

i really like some off the hybrid OG/OT this year. fill need at back up for both position right away. beef for jumbo set also. never know there are two to four OG in that draft that might be able to hold down the RT position as a starter.

I like flexibilty

With those athletic feet you don't waste him at RT. He was born to play LT.

True, but most of the better running games have an athletic right tackle..

Now, just put up an updated list with consideration of leaving Armstead at the LT...

However, Bushrod, more a plodder, was effective at redirecting speed rushers further out (increasing their rush arc/distance traveled), but had the size to negate, at least minimize, bull rushers - he worked well for that scheme...

Having Armstead's athleticism on the right edge would give a ++ advantage in matchups on that side of the line...

Wish we had more people not afraid to mocks; they shouldn't be afraid of ridicule, though playful poking is always healthy among friends...

There probably are prospects that should be discussed that just haven't been mentioned here yet...

There's some real good discussion and thought provoking insight even when we don't all have the same picture of the Saints team and status quo...

I voted guard. When Evans was hurt, Lelito was getting pushed around like he was on roller skates. That was when the offensive line was at it's worst this year. I'm afraid of what would happen if Evans or Grubbs had a season ending injury.
