It's really a battle for back-ups after McCoy.

I think our OL will be the best in many years.

For the draft capital spent, yes, it rendered the competition discussion moot...

McCoy's college production is awesome and suggests he'll be a plug-n-play for us; but some of his athleticism question marks we'll get answered quick in training camp with the talent we have on the defensive line...

Easton has NFL experience and that might give him the edge to start the season while McCoy learns the ropes. Center is critical for our scheme.

Saw a crazy stat on McCoy a few weeks back ...

Over 1,534 snaps at TAM, 3 seasons (played GUARD AND CENTER) only allowing 1 sack? In the SEC vs 1st tier DE rushers at Georgia, LSU, Bama & Missou? That's ridiculous production at the center/G position.

Not a sexy pick but like Rugby stated, center is an essential/crucial piece to the O line.

My spider senses (flexibility of EMcCoy) tell me that 2019 is Andrus Peat's last year in the Big Easy.

And that production is where I'm laying my pillow when I sleep if I'm Drew Brees. Don't think McCoy is playing guard though as Unger showed how important Center is for what we do on offense...

McCOY, TOO BAD HE DIDN'T PLAY FOR GA TECH. WE COULD BE "ALL ABUZZ ABOUT THE CENTER OF ATTENTION"

Peat will be resigned... more like GlassHaus Arnstead is on thin ice next year.
