I think that Decastro isn't that far behind Warmack at drive blocking, and superior at everything else. Decastro will always be the superior prospect coming out.

I would love to have Warmack, no doubt. It's hard for me when we could have had Decastro last year, to ask for Warmack this year.

It's splitting hairs, but I think I see a little bit more of a divide between Warmack and DeCastro's power as drive blockers, which can make a big difference in a specific scheme. But I agree that DeCastro is the overall better prospect coming out. But that doesn't necessarily mean Warmack will go later. This class is weaker overall and we've seen lesser guard prospects go higher (who was that geriatiric guard from Baylor that the Eagles drafted?).

One thing that isn't splitting hairs...and for everyone who wanted us to take DeCastro last year...is that this supposedly "can't miss," "day 1 starter," is playing second team on a team that needs OL help itself.

He just got activated coming off a serious knee injury. I'd expect him to start next year.

Yeah, coming off the knee injury, one can't really judge.

Clady has been pretty great with Peyton this year.

We agree there for the most part

True.

Had to look him up, only remembered that his last name was Watkins and that he came into the league when he was 26 years old. He went 23rd overall, I think Decastro went 25th last year. Maurkice Pouncey went 15th.

So Im not good with players as I am still learning the whole college level aspect of football but as far as position goes this is what I think we should do:
Round 1: OT
Round 2: OT or CB
Round 3: CB or OT (which ever position we dont fill in round 2 should be filled here)
Round 4: OG
Round 5: LB
Round 6: ?
Round 7: ?

Could use some advice on who would be the best available in each round though.

The top OT in the whole class is Luke Joeckel (Texas AM), but we probably won't pick high enough for him. After that, Taylor Lewan (Michigan) and Eric Fisher (Central Michigan) are the two solid first round prospects.

The best 2nd round OT in my opinion in Oday Aboushi (Virginia). Lane Johnson (Oklahoma) has been getting a lot of love lately but I can't claim to have watched him specifically. D.J. Fluker (Alabama) might also be an option. The two 2nd round cornerbacks I like are Jordan Poyer (Oregon State) and Desmond Trufant (Washington).

In the 3rd round, I really don't know what direction to go for an OT unless someone falls unexpectedly. Kyle Long (Oregon) is getting some hype, but SDF61 would probably know more about that. Perhaps Brennan Williams (North Carolina) as he has dropped due to injury. My favorite 3rd round cornerback option is Logan Ryan (Rutgers) by a wide margin.

There aren't many mid round guards I like. Braxton Cave (Notre Dame) could be a 4th round option, but he's a center. Maybe Gabe Jackson (Mississippi State) or Alvin Bailey (Arkansas) if they're there.

As for 5th round linebackers, Kiko Alonso (Oregon) and Kevin Reddick (North Carolina) are good ILB prospects if they last that long. As I think of OLB prospects that could possibly last that long, Michael Buchanan (Illinois) stands out.

I always thought kevin zeitler was a better prospect than decastro coming out of college playing almost as dominant against better competition. Looked average tonight though from the few snaps I saw.
lets not get cute, yes on warmack in the first.
