Re: So how do you take the pressure off the offensive and defensive lines?
You have as much chance of getting the next 11 year O-line starter from round 7 as you do from round 1. Remember, a lot of round 1 guys AND round 7 guys are busts, but there are a lot more O-line guys left in round 7. There are 5 O-line guys for every running back; there are 5 O-line guys for every 2 wideouts.
A guy can be coached to round 1 level in college, but once he puts the Sunday pads on, talent wins out every time. If the talent isn't there, a guy can't be coached to deal with DeMarcus Ware. Again: I'd rather find a guy with great potential on day 2, than a guy who has already reached his max potential in the Orange Bowl.
