I would even agree with Kemp that picking up a veteran tackle in FA would be smart, but we should also be drafting and grooming a future tackle for the years to come, because it's painfully obvious Clary isn't the answer.
We do need a blue chip left tackle. But as long as Gaither is healthy, we'd be best off playing that rookie tackle on the right side. Why let him replace Gaither and play a later round rookie or Clary on the right? Gaither-Joeckel (if we landed him) would be soooo much better than any other combination that we could manage. And Joeckel could still move to the left side if/when Gaither got hurt. Then a veteran could fill in at RT. But we don't want to draft OL OL OL and ignore pass rusher, guard, corner, tight end, running back, etc.
