You point out that our O line gives up sacks and Ben has no protection, but would rather take Hakeem Nicks in the 1st so he can be the #3 or #4 WR and watch Ben get sacked because we didnt address the O line again. Makes no sense to me other than WR and CB are glamour picks.

Oh yeah......and Alex Mack is soft.
what cracks me up, is in 1 post he implies that olinemen aren't that neccessary for success, so why waste a high pick on one, then he turns around and advocates getting into a bidding war for gross or carey....:
