There are about 5 tackles that are late-1st worthy. We need to select one of them.
I assume you mean offensive tackles...and I'm not entirely sure we take one. JA might not want to give up on Omiyele yet, and he might stick with Webb at RT to try and make him into a "late round steal" type.
I think it's far more likely that we take an interior lineman early, possibly a center given that Kreutz is a free agent and hasn't been that good for a few seasons. We're probably stuck with Chris Williams at LG unless we want to admit that mistake as well...so I think we most likely see any pick invested in the o-line be at C or RG.
The starting 5 was shuffled like a deck of cards this season. It's a mess. I have a lot of faith in Tice however.
Does Webb have a future at all?
Can Omiyale move back to RT? Or back inside?
Where is Chris Williams future at?
It's a real mess. Assume we draft Tyron Smith and plug him in at LT. What is going to be around him? I seriously have no clue.
LT - Tyron Smith
LG - Chris Williams (I'd prefer a better run blocker here)
C - Kreutz
RG - Garza
RT - Omiyale
Is that it?
I think it's even more confusing if you draft someone like Pouncey in the first.
Omiyele was HORRIBLE at everywhere but LT. He's a pathetic run blocker....Kreutz is also a FA I hope to hell we don't bring back. A right side of the line going Kreutz-Garza-Omiyele would be the weakest run blocking unit in the history of the sport..
And we just might try and stick with Webb. He was the token JA late round development type that we threw to the fire when everyone else proved to be garbage. I bet he ends up getting a chance to keep his starting job next year.
