Re: Nick's Final Two-Round NFL Mock Draft
We have Romberg, Setterstrom, and Gorin who have more experience then an OL guy in the 3rd round and played well in the games they played. A third round OL player might have a tough time supplanting backups Steussie G/RT, Setterstrom, Fry, and Gorin OT (26 games started last three years at OT-- 18 for Patriots). It often takes time for OL players drafted in the third round and later to make much of an impact. Barron was drafted in the first round and it took him a while to get going.
What I am saying is yes I would like to add depth and eventualy upgrade our OL but I would do it through free agency(veteran), draft this year (5th round and later), draft next year (1st day pick). I would also look free agency next year. I would consider all the above options.
If we are going to say its a risk to not take an OL because of injury should we not look at all the other positions as well out of fear of injury.
What happens if the areas of need I talked about goes down. What happens if Holt goes down who do we go to then Bennett and Looker. What happens if Chavous goes down who is our SS then. What happens if Fakhir or Brown goes down or Brown gets a third strike. If you wan't to draft based on fear that players are going to go down then you need to do it for all of the positions as well. A WR in the third round could possibly push for a starting job or become the third WR. A safety could learn from Chavous and possibly push him for the starting job this year and maybe replace him next year. A CB could play in nickle and dime situations and push for a starting position.
I really would not be disapointed at all if we went OL. My whole point was there are other areas of need where players may have a better chance of impacting our team especially if our OL remains healthy this year.
