Default The Draft says it all!

The line play was not that bad in the eyes of the coaches. The sacks had a lot to do with WR's not getting open and Big Ben not reading quick enough.

could be. or they are giving the current linemen time to develop more, like a 2nd chance, which could also kill our franchise QB.....

If it kills our franchise QB, at least we drafted Dixon!

Some of you guys are forgetting that Starks could easily start at LG this year and well just see:

LT-Marvel Smith
LG-Max Starks
C-Justin Hartwig
RG-Kendall Simmons
RT-Willie Colon

I truly dont see a problem with that setup.

Colon would be a better move to guard than Starks in my opinion. I would move Smith to RT and Starks to LT. I liked him better there last year than I ever liked him at RT.

Starks isnt nearly as athletic as Colon, i liked when Starks played RT but i think he would be a better LG.

Starks playing guard, I think not
Need some athleticism and quick feet to be able to pull.
Starks could/would never be a G in the NFL
