I would have no problem at all going OT-OT-OG with our 1st three picks in the 2014 draft. The idea of coming out of the 2014 draft with two of the following:
Jake Matthews, Taylor Lewan, Cyrus Kouandjio, Antonio Richardson,
plus one of the premier guards in the 2nd, such as:
David Yankey, Cyril Richardson, Gabe Jackson, Xavier Sua-Filo,
is enough to make me quite happy. I just don't think this offense gets moving without a solid O-line. They played well enough against the 2 sets of birds, but really showed their holes with the Cowboys and whiners.

I'm not ready to give up on Jake Long, but how about OT, RB, OG?

I'm down for that! I hope we see Barrett Jones before the half way point. Maybe week 7 or 8? We need to get him going at Guard this year, get him some playing time. Wells looks to be good at pass blocking but not at opening running lanes.
We need to bite the bullet and load up on some real talent on the O line. The whiners did it in 2010.
11th Pick Overall (1st Round) - Anthony Davis | Offensive Tackle
17th Pick Overall (1st Round) - Mike Iupati | Offensive Guard
They have the best O line in the game.
Can we afford to go without a Safety in the first two rounds? There seems to be a good crop of them shaping up this year.
Couple things here
1) I like the Oline draft but
2) drop 1 O-lineman for a
3) get a RB whether from the draft, trade or FA
4) Dont get CUTE during the draft and trade up, down, all round to take workout freaks that remind you of the next Jerry Rice, Vincent Jackson or Darrell Green to name a few.
When I read the title of this thread I thought Hub has something stuck in his throat.
Anyway, RB has to be in the equation....

O-line and RB is definitely important
Any combination of OL, DB, and RB this offseason will make me happy. It'd be nice if the Rams had a shot at one if the top rated college linemen in the upcoming draft, but there's still a lot of football to be played.
sigh.....I thought we tried this already....not saying it is not needed but seems like groundhog day......
You know things are pretty bad when a team is talking about the draft 4 games into the season.
So I'll bite.
If this season plays out the way the first 4 games have, I'd be looking for a fearless playmaking franchise QB first.
Go crazy on rebuilding the offensive line in the first round, but don't take an RB until round two at the absolute earliest. RBs are too interchangeable and have too short of a shelf life to justify a round 1 pick.
