Mock Draft 2.0 (1/26/15)
1. Brandon Scherff OG/RT Iowa

Conversely we had an aging offensive line, a LT everyone thought was done (DD) and a RT we didn't want to re-sign (KM) and backups who have seen little or no playing time (Petrus, Brewer, etc ...).

Having said that, I can see it coming back to bite us in the keister if this trend continues. The more you gamble, the more chances you have to lose (ala Marvin Austin).
i wasn't mentioning nascar as scheme, more a philosophy of having more talent at DE than you need, which results in a defensive strategy almost entirely focused on the passrush and getting turnovers off that passrush.
And I completely disagree HB wasent a need. Jacobs was released. Bradshaw was injured. Brown had done nothing in the NFL, and the giants had the worst running game in the league with almost no explosive plays at all from that position.
HB was certainly a need. A pretty significant one at the time.
