  • I have to say it......

    Eric Winston is still out there and we NEED to sign him. We could get him for around $2MM/year right now. It would solidify our O line for the forseeable future and enable us to develop Pugh to play guard, where he needs to be.

    Having Winston at RT with Beatty at LT would put us in great position to protect our QB, and have a stronger running game.
    To me, this move is far more impactful than signing Cruz to a long term deal. Plus if Beatty gets hurt, Winston can slide to LT where he has played in the NFL.

    In my view, RT is our most important hole to fill, even after the draft. To "assume" that Pugh will be ready to become a starting RT off the bat is a hugely risky proposition.

    Sign Winston.....and solidify our O line for years to come.

    Why rush to sign him to a 2-3 million dollar deal right now? He hasn't been picked up by anyone, and Pugh has only participated in rookie camp. Wait until OTAs or training camp. He's unsigned for a reason.

        Because he will probably be signed with someone else by then.

              Do they let them lift weights in the NFL?

                  Hes more ready to play rt than guard. As you very well know, we shouldn't have drafted this kid to begin with. I've done enough talking about how terrible our last two 1st round picks were.

                    I understand that he was projected as a guard in the NFL by most teams. Plus, isn't strength a very important component in playing RT?

                      Watch the game tapes in the draft forum. He is not going to be able to move 310 lb DL.

                        Putting the guard/tackle argument aside, do you really think Pugh is NFL ready right now to be the starting RT on a contending team? Not to mention that Brian Orakpo and Demarcus Ware are in our division.

                          do u honestly believe that you know more about a player than our GM, scouts, coaching staff ? Pugh may have been drafted a little higher than his value but his talent warrants a late first round pick. Guard, center, right tackle I don't really care where he plays as long as he develops into a future starter on the line, then he was worth the first round pick
