    People may or may not agree that this is the greatest need, but not one of you can argue that the offensive tackle position doesn't need to be a main priority this offseason. It's never the most exciting thing in the world to talk about drafting a lineman in the first round, but sometimes it's exactly what your team needs. Lucky for us, there will be a plethora of tackles in the draft and in free agency. I don't know enough about the college guys yet, so I will just give you a few of the pros that are scheduled to be on the market come spring time.


    RTs: Michael Oher, Rodger Saffold, Eric Winston, Zach Strief
    Mid-Grade: Byron Bell, Austin Howard, Geoff Schwartz, Breno Giacomini


    LTs: Jordan Gross, Branden Albert, Eugene Monroe, Jared Veldheer
    Mid-Grade: Charles Brown


    I personally think we should cut Stewart and sign a RT. I think Roos has a couple years left in the tank, and I really don't wanna risk a position change even though getting one of them elite left tackles would be sweet. This gives us the option to go elsewhere in the draft which would be great for us fans. Two years in a row with O-line in the 1st round could be devastating to ones psyche.


    How do you think we should address the position?

    We have enough rookies on the line.Check what Michael Oher is looking for, he is probably leaving Baltimore and could be had for just a little bit more than what big country is on.

    I say sign Oher in free agency and draft JuWaun James out of Tennessee in the 4th. James can play RT or LT in my opinion and I've heard people think he could go higher than this. If he is there, we take him.

    Oher isn't any good.

    Just rebuild the OL through the draft.

    He is ten times better than stewart though. And might take a discount to play closer to home.

    One main issue before we start drafting tackles. We need a capable O line coach. Bruce needs to gtfo.

    Munch, Bruce, Loggains, and whoevers coaching the linebackers and special teams....I hope this new Tommy guy has some balls. It would really suck if he's a puss that's afraid to fire people.
