Well, I would also argue the middle of our OL needs to counter the athleticism of today's interior DL. Ours do not. Put Warmack in there, sign Vasquez, and hopefully there's a healthy Faulk sitting there in the 2nd for us, or we sign one of the FAs like Albert. At that point, both our passing and running games will probably take big leaps forward. An OL like that is also one that will allow us to impose our will on teams late in games, something we haven't been able to do in years. When we need a yard, or we need to protect Rivers late in games, I've been holding my breath for far too many years. I think it's almost imperative that we get both an OT, and an OG, either through the draft or/and FA.
