I don't know if it's that simple, but it does sound like a solid plan if it works out.
Yeah, premier right tackles are paid 7mil max. LTs 10+mil

Re: Saints select offensive lineman Andrus Peat with the 13th pick

Commentator took a shot at Armstead when Peat was picked...
as if Armstead was a flop. Our troubles weren't from Brees' blind side,
our troubles were up the middle on the passing lanes.
Armstead did a heck of a job (IMHO).
This kid will be a great addition and is young enough to flow where needed.
I think both he and Armstead could do left or right. They both have the feet and hands.

We were either average to below average on the O line last season & we addressed this twice (Unger & Peat). I think Sean & the rest of our brain trust have a game plan, otherwise he wouldn't have been on our board.
I have to admit ur right . that's exactly what I did.

One thing I learned about SP... NEVER EXPECT who you think he is going to draft. The only except is if the player has a NFL father/DNA Which is one of the reasons I think we snagged peat.

So I didn't go into it for a player or position I just wanted to see what rabbit we were going to pull out of our hat and we did,

That was mentioned on the radio today. Payton did mention that our tackles are going to remain tackles so that tells me Lelito is going to play guard unless we draft one tonight. To be honest,I think Lelito will be just fine....not to mention,we also have Kelemente.

I think our back up OL is Lelito. They weren't comfy with him as a starter and we went out and brought in whats his name who I don't like either, lol.

Lelito got pushed around a lot last season. IMO he's the weak link that needs to be replaced unless he improved greatly in the off season.

I was thinking the opposite; Lelito at center did fine, it was Evans at guard who struggled mightily due to injury. Grubbs also struggled at times. Armstead/Strief were pretty solid

Lilito barely played last season,and we he did, he played well. Not saying he was a stud,but he played well and should be better with Unger by his side.
