Agree! Agree! Agree! I understand we are in need of a #2 wide out and a MLB, however, we must protect our investment in RG3 by drafting the best available linemen with pick 34. Our O-line was awful this year, maybe the worst part of our team, in my opinion everything besides Trent needs to be replaced. As for #2 wideouts, several options will be available via free agency (including Maclin who I would be willing to take a chance on if Philly lets him walk... despite his recent injury history). And as for MLB, i think Perry Riley was being groomed to replace Fletcher and I have faith he can do so some-what successfully. O-Line is BY FAR our biggest need.

Welcome to the board bud!
Great post too... I agree with what you said for the most part, especially about the garbage oline. Rgiii has to keep his eyes on the collapsing line instead of downfield!.. maclin is an interesting notion too. As for Riley, he will replace Fletcher, and as soon as he starts catching the balls that hits his hands he will be an improvement to The Fletcher we had this year. However if we stay with the 3/4 we would still have a hole at ilb. Brian Khel might be next in line amount a few others.
I really hope Rambo and Thomas have an amazing off-season. Safety will be a concern and I think Ameraon replaces wilson and we extend halls contract and let crawford, bernstine, murphey, and my boy minnifield duke it out for the nickel back and back up roles.
Pins and needles waiting for the new coach/direction to be found. More exciting then this whole craptacular season! Lol
#21 forever in our hearts
...and yet ANOTHER record setting performance by "RG3 the third"!!!!

CBSSPORTS.COM ALL-AMERICANS: FIRST-TEAM DEFENSE AS NFL DRAFT PROSPECTS: CB - Darqueze Dennard, Sr., Michigan State: Possessing a lanky, athletic frame with good fluidity and speed, Dennard consistently shut down one side of the field for the Spartans in 2013, playing a critical role for MSU's No. 1 ranked defense. Honored with the Thorpe Award as the nation's top defensive back, Dennard allowed only three completions in 31 pass attempts of 15-plus yards thrown against him this season. Dennard may be competing only with UCLA's Barr to be the first defender on this list to hear his name called on Day One of the draft. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

I know .. O-line.

I can't say I disagree.

We can get oline fellas in FA though. Guys with a proven NFL track record. Sure, you can say the same for defense, but I'd like to see us go heavier on offense in FA, and heavier on defense in the draft.

That said, I still want Byrd :)

I'm struggling to keep hope in Rambo. Still very curious about Thomas, but word out of camp all last offseason was Rambo was learning faster than Thomas. Oddly, they were also saying Aldrick Robinson was developing in the WR position the most :/

I will never understand why they let Minnifield go, but grateful we picked him back up. He has instincts...hopefully he will also have a productive offseason.

Not sure if this is allowed, but I would hope these guys start their training earlier and for longer to get themselves together. Especially since we'll have a new coach.

LeRib can get as fat as he wants now I guess; just as long as he gets stronger :)

I agree but... Look what the 9ners did in drafting Oline. FA with a track record usually means older not younger. There are exceptions of course. Plugging holes is usually what FA do.

Is there a big market for drafting linemen this year? Last year's draft seemed heavily focused on oline and dline in the 1st & 2nd round. If the market is smaller this draft, that could mean the better talent could fall to us :)

Some of these guys in Mikes dog house may be more suitable to a different scheme. I can only hope.

I'll take C00ley's word on him.

Just curious - what has Cooley said or done in the past that gives you any faith in him as a talent evaluator?

I'll judge players on what they do rather than what somebody says about them. Excluding draft time, of course. At that time, I reserve the right to get wildly overexcited about any marginal prospect we draft. Because that's what we do, lol.

I doubt that applies to any of the o-linemen. Undersized, and lacking strength.
