Looks like we would be drafting another backup lineman at best.
We need to draft "starter talent" NOT "backup talent" if the O-line is going to improve.
bingo !!! that about covers it. when your drafting most of your linemen from 3rd round on thats what you usually end up with. backup talent. there's the old saying , "you only get what you pay for " .. ben and the RB's have found out just how true that is. they've suffered physically and statistically while colbert and company have sifted through the draft rubble looking for a diamond in the ruff instead of paying for quality up front.
they could have avoided the hartwig and mayhan center problems years ago by drafting mangold , albeit at the sacrifice of holmes , but it seems to me that late round WR and RB gems are more abundant in the league than late round linemen gems.
