Even at that, Harris had exactly one good game and that was week one against Oakland.

How does anyone know what Troutman is good or bad at in the NFL at this point?

And I believe he gave up 1 sack while at Penn State, and zero sacks/pressure over his senior year.

Two of the top 4 picks works for me. Id go OT, Db, RB, OT. First four picks. At this point its completely fluid until FA comes around. Would seriously consider throwing a boatload of money at jake long and still. Draft a lineman high.

No one does, we'll have to rely on the inhouse evaluation of him. Hopefully he looks good now so we can cross LG off our needs list.

I'd like to sign Matt Slauson and let him compete with Troutman. Slauson is underrated and should be inexpensive. He'd be better than what we've had in 2012 if he wins, and we'd have a very solid backup if he loses.

its no different than what evaluations are given with any drafted player. the fact is he has slow hands and I think he will have trouble blocking in the pros. I hope I am wrong as I hope every draft pick we have is a star, but the fact is I look at games from him, and while he is a big body that can be stout against bigger guys, he is going to have trouble with speedier interior rushers.

But you said he "is good" at run blocking and "did struggle" in pass protection. Present and past tense. That just doesn't any sense since he hasn't played in the NFL yet. And it makes even less sense if you're referring to college where he was consistently near-perfect in pass protection.

I think OL and CB in the first two rounds, depending on who is available. After that it's wide open. We can also address needs in FA as well. This thread makes the internet sad.
where did i say we would start 3 rookies?

again, i never said anything about starting any rookies! i suggested we rebuild the (neglected) line with high draft picks. i would expect a top 11 OL to start, not all 3 draft picks. i just don't see the point of drafting a CB with our history. aside from that i don't see any position we need more than LG. so since we would be getting CB dealt with in FA, i proposed drafting 3 OL with our first 3 picks. yes, it's a bit drastic, but so is the nosedive this offense went into with the horrible play on the entire left side of the line, and RT. before mcneil, the last 2nd round pick i remember us spending on 0-line was toniu freaking fonoti! the last time i saw him was on the discovery channel with the fire department using the jaws of life to cut him out of his bedroom.

btw, to those who don't like the idea of a thread about the O-line, why are you even taking the time to comment (some multiple times!)? go take a walk, do a @$%^ing sudoku. anyway, i don't actually think i have seen one calling for our first 3 picks to be spent on the line.

Oh I like the idea of A thread on the OL. We have several. Didn't see the need for yet another.
