Default Re: Ryan Kalil

I could see us drafting Kalil but it would have to be with a major trade down or to trade up in the 2 nd round. Dont think that we will be doing that in the first round and dont see him lasting long in the 2nd ... I just dont see the need to draft him or another Center this early in the draft anyway. How do you guys/gals know that Okobi isnt the answer? He hasnt played any the past 4 years enough to really tell what he can do. All he has done is play in the preseason and that is with the 2nd and 3rd string players that you cannot get accustomed to playing with in 4 preseason games...sorry dont see it happening..
God Bless

don't forget we just signed the dude from tampa, i don't think center is a major concern, maybe to some but it isn't, i think okobi or phillips could do a good job if given a real chance, i seriously doubt the rooney's would've signed okobi to the extension they did if he didn't have talent. if we go oline, it should be for a left guard to groom for the departure of faneca next year

so today he says since the steelers missed out on mangold they just need to draft kalil, dont care what anyone says, start him for the next 10 years and they will never regret it.

ive really been thinking we need 2 defenders on the front 7 with our 1st 2 picks, but now im thinking how important a pro bowl calibur center has always been. if kalil is there and the sure thing, we may not be able to afford to pass him up.
Agreed, any way you look at it, O-line needs to be shored up. The rest of the offense is OK (pray for Ben). Look at what has happened to us when our O-line wasn't strong. If we get a beast to shore up the center of the O-line in the first (our trademark), and look OLB, DE & maybe CB in rounds 2,3, etc. and maybe plug in a WR or RB somewhere in there if we find is a steal, I am OK with that.
