    Of course it is. Roethlisberger has been hurt basically every season. His o line is not THAT bad.

    Peyton and Brady played how many games before missing an entire season apiece? Everyone gets hurt. You can't rely on "toughness".

    And theyve drafted 1st round OL the past two years, and an OL in the second this year.


    But as for the question in the thread.

    Without Beatty = LT
    With Beatty or FA OT = DT

    While this was my main argument after 2011, the oline definitely got a lot better. I'm all for improving it, and I wouldn't mind an olineman in round one but we have a lot of pressing needs and there's likely a better fit at 19.

    Reese drafted guys like Brewer and Mosely for a reason. The glorious oline of 2007 and 2008 had no first round picks IIRC.

    You can't but realistically what will a first rounder do for 2013? Wilson's main job is to run not block but because he isn't a good blocker he can't play. Just the tiniest mistake from a rookie OL and he's in the doghosue for 2 years.
