"Leaders aren't born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that's the price we'll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal."
You just don't take an OL player in the 1st with so many needs unless it's a LT or a "can't miss" sort of prospect at another position like some think Warmack is at G. We could use some more interior OL depth but the front 7 on defense should be the biggest priority.
It was the Pro Bowl though man. You saw the cushions the DBs were giving them right? Anyway, we can upgrade our offense all we want but we're not going to be able to stand up to even better offenses if we fail to get a pass rush on them or get owned by runs to the side because our linebackers fail to get there in time.I saw what Eli Manning with some actual time to throw can do last night.

I'd be happy with Fluker if some others guys I like were gone, although I agree #19 is a tad high for him. He could use some improvement in pass protection but destroys people in the running game. He' still young too. Great attitude though and MASSIVE... They don't call him Planet Fluker for nothing. I don't think there's any chance he plays guard though. I'd be willing to bet Barrett Jones is still there at #19 and I think he'd be the better long term get.
Id look at Barrett Jones maybe before Womack and Fluker. Reason being is his ability to play different positions on the OLine with excellence. That kid was 3 championships playing 3 diferent positions on their OLine
Football has been very, very good to us.
Even though 2013 & 2014 was a losing season's, we can console ourselves with this fact-
# of Super Bowl victories since 1985:
1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
3-San Francisco, Dallas
4-New York Giants!!! & NE
Let's make it 5 in 2015 so we can be on a LINE all by ourselves again!!!

No way we take DJ Fluker at 19overall.. He could end up being a Guard , as hes kinda the plodding type, and at best, hes a run blocking RT.. I don't know how many mocks have em going in rd 1? Most i 've seen, have em going mid 2nd to late 2nd... Only oline i could stomach in RD1 is Eric Fisher, Lane Johnson, and Chance Warmack.. Warmack only because hes so good, and such a safe bet , as Fluker isn't even a safe bet... He has some bust concerns as well.. Will his weight be able to stay under control? Will he be able to move well enough to stay at RT? Will he be able to pass block good enough against talented NFL caliber ends? I don't trust em, to be honest.. He seemed to be the one that got blown by the most outta the bama olineman this past yr.. I just don't like nor trust DJ Fluker..
Im fine with an OL pick in the first. I would love Ogletree if he is there though, but wouldn't be angry with the right OL pick there. I could also be ok with a pass rusher.
Perfect pass into double coverage. Amazing catch!
