    I wouldn't go THAT far. Barron was at another level.

    I hope you mean LOWER. I don't even think he's in the league right now.

    Go Rams!

    I don't think he'll get paid what he wants to. But he will get offered a job as a teams starting tackle. I really think we'll need to spend one of our first rounders in 2014 on a tackle that can come in and play RT and move left when Jake Longs time is done with the Rams.

    Why when Barksdale has been above average at RT and is young.

    Barksdale has done well subbing in and yes he's fairly young. Barksdale has been great off the bench so leave him in that role. Plus what happens when one of them goes down? I also think we should get rid of Dahl and possibly Wells. Both are old and brittle and neither is really living up to their contracts. We have Barrett who should be healthy next year and Barnes. Barnes is likely a career backup so hopefully Barrett is ready to start. Draft a guard in round 2 or 3 and either start him or Barksdale at RG.

    Long
    Smith/Williams
    Jones
    Smith/Barksdale/Rookie
    Rookie/Barksdale

    We have one of the better offensive line coaches in the NFL he's got a lot of production from some older players at the end of their career, some retreads that were 1st round failures with their drafted club and I'd love to see what he could do if we put a couple more high draft picks on that line. Fisher wants to be a power run first offense. That requires a good Oline. He was fortunate to inherit some great players when he took over in Houston/Tennessee and was able to back fill with very few high draft picks. He's likely to stock this with some high draft picks then through the years supplement it with mid rounders again.
