Well hindsight (50/50) would make that question way too easy.

Last year: Tre Jackson in the 3rd with #78 where we took Corner PJ Williams. Could've used the Grayson pick #75 on PJ. Tre Jackson went in the 4th at #111.

Or, the 2nd round pick #45 used to select Kikaha. Use instead for Ali Marpet who went #61.

Re: Offensive Line Grades VS Steelers

This biggest issues with the team is the failure of past draft picks. When a team misses on draft picks, it hinders them and therefore limits what can be addressed from year to year. When Jim Mora was here, they always seemed to hit on draft picks and thus were able to replace top tier talent when it left. That is the biggest issue currently with the team. If we had hit on the picks between 2011 and 2014, the team wouldn't be in this position. That's just an honest assessment.

It's really not hindsight Danno. They don't really draft for what I would call preventive maintainence, under Payton it's more flash than braun. He gets his toys but never depth for replacing aging veterans on the O-line which makes his toys click and has never had a consistant D to take pressure off of the O who has had to score 30+ ppg to be in the game or win. It's actually quite sad. Payton has been lucky as he!! with the O-line up to last season but luck with late round picks and UDFA don't always do so well. The Peat pick is looking more and more like a bad decision, I hope the kid studs out but it's hard to see it on gamedays. Lelito should have been solid by now but looks like he's taken steps back. Kelemente has looked better but is he really a true starting G? Incognito was there for the picking as a FA and is quite good, we passed him up, why? He picked on a kid that cried bloody murder. The 2016 G's from Arkansas was sitting there and so was Alexander from LSU along with several others that could be playing. My other pick in the 2015 draft would have been Garcia though. Paytons luck is running thin with the O-line although his toys are top notch .
