    Thats because the 3 that are really all pro's were drafted in rounds 1 and 2. If you have Smith, MArtin and Frederick, it makes it a lot easier on the other 2 OLmen. Free and Leary were ok linemen. They will not be as good away from those other 3. WE have Pugh, Richberg and Flowers as our "big 3". Quite different.

    That said, I like Dunker and Wheeler as UDFAs and think they can replace a Jerry and Hart pretty easily if healthy.
    Spin that Webb young Davis

    Would love to add Hart to the list ... good to hear he has been working hard this offseason.

    Hopefully, competition makes all of these guys better

    While I agree that there have been many UDFAs to come out of nowhere and have good careers, La'el Collins is a special case. Technically, he ended up going undrafted but that's only because news broke of a potential crime right before the draft. He would have been a 1st rounder (2nd at the lowest) without that incident.

    As usual.. stupid comment

    Everything is fine BECAUSE.. we got a UDFA who has a 2% chance at being a decent player rather than the usual 1%

    Might as well hand us the Lombardi trophy tomorrow, Chad Wheeler= the savior
    Draft day dream:
    1. Garrett Bolles LT Utah
    2. Dalvin Tomlinson DT Alabama
    3. Jake Butt TE Michigan
    4. Samaje Perine RB Oklahoma
    5. Jalen Myrick CB Minnesota
    6. Jayon Brown WLB UCLA
    7. Zane Gonzalez K Arizona

    Agree 100%.
    NFL Draft (Realistic Hope):

    Rd 1
    Garrett Bolles - OT
    David Njoku - TE
    Zach Cunningham - OLB

    I am uncomfortable calling Bobby Hart "developed".

    He,like Flowers, will be given a chance to change that.

    Wasn't this considered a very weak draft for OL and particularly OT's. With so many OL needy teams I will be surprised if 1 does develop. I'm hopeful
    but I've been holding out hope for quite a few years now. In a draft that was so weak in OL talent I think the odds are long.
