    Good tackles never hit free agency. Teams don't let them get away.

    Gotta build that position through the draft.

    Why do people keep saying TE is such a need for us when it's not? We have a perfectly capable starter in Delanie Walker along with a capable blocking TE in Taylor Thompson who is still developing. Even after we get rid of Stevens we can just pick up a third sting guy off of the FA wire and still be perfectly fine at the position assuming Thompson develops.

    I think we need to go with a defensive end in round 1 because we need to bolster our pass rush. If we can get a guy who is a legitimate edge rushing threat then we have perfect capable guys behind him with Morgan, Big Po, and Edwards.

    After that we need to go OT twice in rounds 2 and 4 in order to take a bookends of the future. The 2nd round guy will start at RT in his rookie year and bounce to LT after that once Roos moves on. The 4th round OT will take his RT spot after that.

    I would love to see:
    Round 1) Trent Murphy, LB/DE, Stanford
    Round 2) La'el Collins, OT, LSU
    Round 4) JaWaun James, OT, Tennessee

    Alright. That's a cool fact. A lot of teams have done that and it not panned out.

    Why has Levitre stunk so bad? Anyone have an answer for that? New system? Got paid? Or just simply sucking. He was graded as one of safest FAs this year.

    This. That was terrible. It encapsulated so many issues with pass protection that had been ongoing the entire half. The second half they did something and many o-line issues seemingly cleared up - not sure what they changed - but it was a jailbreak in the first half on every play.

    Stacy looked good on alot of plays, but that run was one that should've been on sportscenter.

    I agree. If/when we use all 3 TEs, one is usually used as a FB. But we have Mooney at FB, heck he can even catch the ball.

    Michael Oher might hit FA since the Ravens have no money.

    Yea but we've already spent wayyyyy too much in FA. A free agent LT would break the bank.

    Fred Miller was a solid OT for us we got as an FA. After a strong OT -- Jon Runyan -- left in FA.
