Two R1 picks (Pouncey & DeCastro) and two R2 picks (Gilbert & Adams), plus a R7 pick who played very well as a rookie (Beachum). That is indeed making a commitment to the O-line.
Cutting The Colon not only leaves more money for signing Wallace (which BB would like, no?), but gives the team a healthier player at his position (The Colon has not played a full season in three years, with only one game in the previous two... so, was he even really a starter???).
