Best Player Available. If it's another big nasty (see Ramz), so be it. Games continue to be won & lost in those trenches.
Despite the stellar play of rookie Erik McCoy admirably stepping into Max Unger's spot, we've not been this vulnerable in some time...

We've seen a dramatic decline in Peat who'd played injured and often shifted to LT for the fragile Terron Armstead; but coming into training camp out-of-shape, whether late season injury or naught, was terrible...

Irregardless of some of his 2017 accolades, Warford has been just okay at Right Guard, and we'd done better spending slightly more for Kevin Zeitler, or saving that money and getting as effective right guard for less...

Armstead is injured, again, likely out till the playoffs if we follow his trend since getting paid the Big Mo contract...

Not sure Brees' plans when we win the SuperBowl this year, but I'd strongly consider blowing this offensive line up, getting another first round stud for the offensive line, and reshaping it younger, stronger, better...

But whether free agency or draft, and I'd prefer at least a shot each way, we need a receiving threat, whether TE or a speedster WO opposite Michael Thomas to make it easier to open up the offense...

We're just losing to many third down conversions and red zone opportunities...

I agree with drafting the big uglies in the first round.....maybe early second round. We need another monster on the O-line to give us that edge we used to have in the trenches. Peat is likely gone after this season. I'm down with two new guards. Warford has never excited me so I wouldn't mind bringing in a new RG. However, if Drew is under center I don't want to mess with the continuity along the line.
