So if Lelito and Kelemete/Streif end up starting

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Brees still has a quick release which makes the OL look better. The infusion of talent even as UDFA ought to give us enough depth....

Strief would not make a good guard. Do you see that guy pulling and lumbering around?

For four years he was a tackle -eligible for 4-5 plays a game and played special teams, so yes

The defense is going to have to improve and Grayson better be prepared to play.

Right, but he'll be 33 at the start of the season and can't handle a speed rusher to save his life anymore. I don't want that guy out in the open blocking on screens.

Armstead, Peat, Unger, Lelito, Strief.

Turner just doesn't seem athletic enough to me. On a running team, he could make it. There's just no way he can pass block 40+ times a game. Young may be the wildcard there. If he can lock down a guard spot, Peat may be at RT and Strief may be the next man up at both tackle spots as well as tackle eligible again.

You forgot Young and Ryker. I think both have a chance at guard.

Peat may beat out Allen at Left Guard which would put Allen at Right Guard and Turner. With this scenario we have Turner, Klemente, Lelito, Ryker, Young and Cheek as solid backups. Our running game will be fine and with a good rotation to keep everyone fresh the passing game will be great!

Good Lord if we have 2 UDFA's starting Drew will be retiring half way through the season.

Why do you desperately keep looking for negatives?
Where do you see Streif improving? That's what this is about. Peat will be starting and so will Lelito. I expect Kelemete to be the odd one out if Streif holds onto his RT job. If Peat is RT, Kelemete better improve from last year.
