IMO that will be a "safe" (lineman) pick & we probably won't "reach" for a specific player. I still believe a stud LB will fall to the mid rounds.

Another stud lineman (see Ramz) would be great as well. Gotta shore up the O line once the playoffs start.
Major, think you said you were not in GNO-area, but there's been talk on the local talk shows and radio shows (suspect Mike Detillier behind it) that we may trade a lineman...

Warford is the target of many of the rumours now...

Whoa really? Sorry, I know that was addressed to Major but you piqued my interest. Cesar Ruiz at RG would be fantastic.

No need to apologize, conversation is everyone, Brother!

No one was named as the replacement - only that the draft is nearly as deep on the offensive line as it is at WR...

Smash has shared this video, I timed the link so it starts where Detillier esplains his thinking...

Well, it looks like Peat is here for awhile.(sigh) Warford is in his last year of his contract and that is the right time to trade players while other teams value their current worth. I would not be happy with trading him and plugging in the replacements that we already have in house. We need to draft a stud this year to insure there is no drop-off on the O-line. I want someone with a nasty streak who will move from OT to OG and will be the back up tackle.

There seems to be plenty of talented players who are not considered NFL level tackles that we might get in the early mid rounds like Carl Nicks in the fourth. You jut have to have the scouting and our scouting department rocks!

I think ULLís Robert Hunt might be just the guy youíre looking for.

There's a lot, yes a lot, of up front guranteed money for Peat and it's likely reward for playing injured with some painful limitations - and the contract also serves a msg for the troops...

On second review, some analysts including Underhill noted that nearly all the back-end of the contract is voidable, so there's relief & a contract that won't scare off potential trade suitors...

What are the chances he slips to us @ #24? Kind of like how Ramz fell to us. I'd like that pick but I'm dreaming right?
IF he falls that far, it'll be because decision makers see that while he has some amazing dancing bear moments, he's often overweight, not dominating for a guy his size...

And then there's that failed drug test at the combine, so he's got one strike right off the bat and is in the NFL program...

Actually, only $23 million of the $55 million is fully guaranteed up front. The other $10.85 million (2022 base salary) is conditionally guaranteed the third day of the 2021 league season.
