We are really restocking the defensive line this off season. I realize that we lost Rankins for a large chunk of the year and the possible suspension for Onyamata makes this necessary, but when are we going to address the glaring weakness on the O-line. I guess we'll address it in the draft but we have limited draft capitol and no pick in the first round where we like to draft O-line. It's not sexy but winning in the trenches is sexy. Just sayin'.

Edit: I don't want to trust Drew behind a line with UDFA's or low round draft picks.

Our line is full of later rounds picks.

I remember going to the Dallas game in 2013 and we played lights out. A few weeks later we went to St. Louis and Quinn dismantled our team single-handedly.

Was that the game when our left tackle got benched and Armstead took over?

Was that Bushrod or Brown? I forgot about that.

Actually, we have invested heavily in the O-line during the draft and free agency lately. I just don't want to back slide with back ups.

Just read that his contract was denied by league office. Probably just needs a little tweaking.

That was Easton's contract. But, yes, needs some tweaking.

I'm a big fan of his raw talent and athleticism. I would love to see if we can coach him back into becoming the monster he once was. He's still in a prime age.
