Agree with this --- I was thinking we might add an inexpensive vet reciever for depth but go into the season with Randle/Jernigan/Cruz --- use our top picks to bolster defense or improve TE and RB later in the draft.

I REALLY hope we don't go after Lewan. If the point would be to move Pugh inside... just get a guard in a later round.

What makes you think Pugh has a higher ceiling at guard then tackle?

I have no problem with Lewan as a legit franchise LT.

Then would prefer we go defense (Gilbert) 1st --- after that Ebron or Evans are not bad options -- same with Barr.
If we don't go Ebron in round #1 --- I really want the ND TE (Niklas) in round 2 or 3 -- but don't think he gets to us in rd 3.
Basing that opinion -- mostly on things I heard from guys like Mayock last year about Pugh.

Pugh and Martin are often compared to each other.
Other than that -- I'm really no expert on the matter.
