Safety / OLB > CB > T.
I just don't see the true need. We've seen the system that keeps Ben healthy, and its not a dominating LT. It's a system that forces him to play quicker. if anything, giving him the illusion of better protection is just asking him to hold onto it longer and take more sacks. Plus, that's effectively throwing away your two 2nd rounders which I don't think they're prepared to do, especially with Much on board.
