    Larry Warfard is the 2nd best guard in this draft. A better prospect in my opinion than Zietler last year. All sec in 2010, 2011 and 2nd team all sec in 2012. Not quite a Warmack but he is huge and can move fairly well. Draft Warmack and this guy and we could have the best line in the nfl.

    The guys he is blocking are future nfl players in the video.

    Only issue is that while Warmack kept getting better he kind of leveled off. So this year Warmack surpassed him. Warmack might aslo be a better student of the game but this guy will be starting for an nfl team in 2013.

    That's a good point. If we suck next year we'll have a new coach in 2014 that will most likely want his own new rookie QB, so it would be good to invest in the O-line now.

    Who cares what other NFL teams do? OG is our biggest need and here is Chance Warmack sitting in our laps that can fill in this position for over a decade. Immediately:

    -Starts
    -Helps the run game
    -Protects Locker

    Then the rest of the draft we can focus on other needs like SS, CB, RB, and whatever else.

    I have no issues with us taking OL in one and two. That would be great and make me very happy.

    In the first round I have no problem with DT or J. Jones possibly Millner if we do not go guard. If we do not go guard in the first, we have to take one in the second. Either way, our priority this offseason are both interior sides of the line.

    Warmack has to be the guy. Our offense starts with the oline, if they cant win their battle neither can the team. Have to solify it and this is the best way to do it.

    I hate the 'value' picks ... If there is a player available that you like and can fill a hole, take him. I don't care if its 1 spot to high or 20 spots too high, where they are drafted has nothing to do with how they play on sundays.

    So I would def. take Warmack at 10. I don't care if some GMs think its too high for an OG, he is a great player that fills a need. Taking a DE or something just because 'OGs just don't got that high' is retarded. On sundays it won't matter if you were drafted 10th or 20th. Warmack will come in and be an immediate upgrade at a position we desperately need to upgrade.

    I'd be fine taking OG/C in the 1st 2 rounds as well. The OL is the foundation for the offense. It doesn't matter who your QB or skill players are if you can't block. And its a smart investment because they will last for 10+ years and you won't even have to think about that position any more.

    There has been one guard taken in the top ten in my lifetime(1988). Chris Naeole was picked tenth by the Saints, who were awful throughout his tenure on the team. Not really his fault, he was a good player, but that didn't stop them from sucking because guard isn't an impact position.

    Here's to hoping we sign a guard or two in free agency so we don't waste a pick on one at ten.

    A premium position.

    A very good interior lineman with versatility is going to be available at 39 because this draft is full of them and they fall due to a lack of value. DTs, DEs, and OTs will be snatched up early and we'll be in position to get one of the best.

    Arguing this is moot, as I seriously doubt we go in to the draft with three holes on the offensive line. At least I would hope we don't.

    LT/DE? Who fits the bill?
