Re: Zach Strief

He's a very cerebral player and he's very sharp. The young 'uns need leadership.

And while we're at it Zach needs to pick up his game too.

Re: Zach Strief

dude has been beat up all year. plus age might be an issue. i stand by what i said earlier last year before we signed him. Draft a ROT and have Zac play backup swing man for the rest of his time as a saint.

That could add 3 or 4 more years to his career.

Depending on the board when we draft a stud left tackle with Armstead moving across isnt a bad idea either.

And probably wouldn't be that expensive neither.

After watching all the moves defenses have made to stop the pass happy NFL that all the rule changes have made.

IMO a true RT is becoming a thing of the past. the elite defense have TREMENDOUS DE/OLB coming at from both sides.

we all know the top ones but the ones i am watching now

OT Ronnie Stanleyis 6-6 315 ND
i am really liking this kid. talk about productive, solid prospect and plenty of upside to boot. he maybe the biggest surprise pick in round 1. top 15? top 10? he is a OT without a doubt. switch him L or R no big deal.

OT T.J. Clemmings 6-5 305 Pitt
Talk about becoming a media darling with a possibility of OG. this is all about upside here. first round? not solid on that. i do like him though.

round 2
OT Ty Sambrailo 6-5 315 Colorado State
here is one to work into a mix. ROT? maybe but sliding inside to guard works also. i really like the way he plays. attitude for start to finish.

round 3
OT Jake Fisher, Oregon. i have talked him up already. he works well as part of a unit. switches and passes off defenders probably better than any OT in the draft. ROT is his home IMO. needs to bulk up a bit for run blocking

Re: Zach Strief

Strief has been a decent starter for us. Never was Evans or Nicks, but no worse then Bushrod. He'd make for an excellent back up.

I too have been wanting a LT and to move Armstead to the right.


But has anybody seen the center from Florida State? The kid is a beast. We need to build inside out on the line.

Re: Zach Strief

Junior had a reputation as a whacko coming out of college. He can play but I think some one needs to tell him to shut up.

Zach has never been anything but the consummate pro. He's also a very good RT and a true leader. I'll take that over a loudmouthed, self promoting "star" any day of the week and twice on Sundays. The whole freaking league is turning into Cam "Look at me" Newton.
