That said when you have a chance to draft a top Tackle you do it. When your starting LT is an underachieving physically weak(for a lineman) coming off a broken leg and you have a top 10 talent especially at the T position staring at you I think you have to take him. Getting the OL fixed will take 2 years but having your bookend T goes a long way. Picking lineman that early is not the sexy pick as a lot of analyst will say but where would the OL be without Pugh? Last year most where really pissed when they took him. This line needs to get younger and better talent is needed upfront. Trust me you don't want CBrown starting to many games.
He's a journey man nothing more. Jerry has the tools but has never put it together either.What's bad is that a lot of people think we have addressed the OL with the signings. Signing journey men does not upgrade your line. It can help for a game or two but not over the long haul. If your going to pick positions to be great at the OL and DL are the areas you want and QB of course. Other areas you can be good and compete very well at. It all starts upfront.
