Brewer and Hosley need a chance to practice with the first team, and get the reps to develop. So far, I haven't heard anything of Diehl retiring, so I fully expect more of the same next season.
Beatty's eye injury in 2011 was pretty much a freak thing, and he did struggle a bit early with back spasms and lost some time; but, he was very steady once he got that situation under control.
Boothe may not be pro bowl material; but he isn't as bad as some people would like to believe.
I'm not opposed at all to drafting a top notch OT; but tackles in the first round often times don't live up to their hype. Let's just hope that JR and TC have been looking down the road and have a plan to fortify the line. The Diehl situation worries me. He's a salary cap nightmare, and he doesn't seem to be inclined to retire.
James Brewer was the guy i wanted when our pick was up in rd 4 a couple yrs ago, and i woulden't be so quick to knock em, as we all knew it was gonna be a couple yrs before he was ready, as he had all the measurables, but needed to be coached up in technique, and now here we are, going into his 3rd yr, and i think the kids gotta a chance...
