Mods, if you want to combine this thread with another O Line thread then do so. However I think it'd be interesting to see where the .Netters think we're at now. We've obviously seen Pete and John realize how bad the line was last year (despite the verbal diarrhea of praise we've heard them give last year's group). They two guys they've signed both have potential to play multiple positions. So here's what I'm thinking right now:
LT: Joeckel (Fant or Odhiambo as backup)
LG: Glowinski (Odhiambo)
C: Britt (Aboushi and Hunt)
RG: Aboushi (Odhiambo)
RT: Ifedi (Gilliam)
That's nine offensive lineman on the roster right now. I fully expect them to draft a tackle in the first three rounds (five picks in those rounds). I don't expect Gilliam to be on this team next year, but he's there if there are no further additions made.
I am in the camp of Fant being the tackle OF THE FUTURE. I was really frustrated as a fan last year watching him struggle, but I also think that we saw a pretty big amount of progress with him. Having said that, the Gilliam experiment scared me (and hopefully the front office as well). He definitely didn't progress last year, and they can't afford to but their LT position in the same boat next year.
Would love to see Ramczyk or Bolles drafted and kick Joeckel to guard (then have Joeckel, Glow and Aboushi duke it out for the two starting guard spots). Or they could draft Lamp and have him at left guard leaving Glow and Aboushi to battle on the right side. I do not think that Cam Robinson is a fit for this team. He's my dream:
Bolles/Ramczyk, Glowinski, Britt, Joeckel, Ifedi
Thoughts? How off am I?
