Would love them to load up on O Linemen and would be happy with any of these three guys. Even if they bring Britt back they could either put him or one of these three at guard. Give Russ more time in the pocket.
Of the three, I like Biadasz the most just because I think they could get him in the 3rd round. Love his attitude. Another guy on my list is Matt Hennessy from Temple. He's probably a tier lower than the other 3, but I think he would be an upgrade over Hunt and should be available after the 3rd.
Only issue for me would be where do they go. Because if you're taking one of them, you're leaving someone else. There does appear to be a sort of premium in terms of where these guys are slotted to go.
I certainly would rather have any of these guys to say, an Okwara or Weaver or other destined to be 3rd string DE/DT.
There also is a very real issue of just how valuable is a great center? They aren't particularly hard to find in day 2 of virtually any draft. Really, I don't think Britt as a borderline PB center is any less effective than those that make annual PBs. I certainly wouldn't want to Chris Spencer our draft because we 'have to have' a top tier center.
And it's worth noting, that taking an OC in the top 64, probably means missing out on some really good WR talent. Guys that could/should produce straight away with some degree of expectation that they turn into a Lockett type value in a year. There is a genuine cost to taking one of these guys and for certain it's drafting into a position that is both fungible and routinely able to develop acceptable quality.
If we aren't overdrafting these guys (top half of R2), I'm ok with it. I do believe that we would be better off dipping into the OT market at end of R2 if it's not totally picked over. Because those types of prospects are harder to find. And cost a lot more to retain. You can't really get a decent OT for under 10M a year.
It's not the most efficient allocation of draft capital. Particularly when we should expect quality players at other more impactful spots to be on the board.
I'll be honest though, I'd be tickled to come away with Cushenberry at the end of R2.
I have no problem with them drafting a center if they think that's truly the best player available, but we don't need to reach for one.
We just took Pocic who was the #2 overall center in his draft class, Finney was the #3 overall center in his draft class, and we still have Hunt who started most of last year at center. A competition between those three is a solid group, and they haven't even released Britt yet.
If we can get an equivalent or better Tackle that is much more interesting, given that we need Brown's eventual replacement at LT and we could certainly use competition for Shell at RT.
I think Unger showed the value of a great C. That said, just reading the tea leaves, I think the signing of Iupati indicates we may be rolling with vets this year. At least early in the draft. Ruiz is an instant plug in but with the amount of OL we have on the roster it seems in this extraordinarily difficult offseason we are going to be leaning on vets. With that said, Schneider does what no one ever thinks or would predict.
