Gallry back to RT
 
Per Adam Schefter on NFLN. No link as of yet.

Joe Thomas a possibility now?

Paranoidmoonduck 02-25-2007 07:19 PM

I think Staley at 33 is far more likely. I was kinda expecting this though.

doingthisinsteadofwork 02-25-2007 07:23 PM

I wouldnt rule it out.

Dave 02-25-2007 07:26 PM

Staley at 33 is the more probable. Oakland needs a ZBS lineman and Staley is pretty much the perfect fit for that.

Shiver 02-25-2007 07:27 PM

This is probably the only way he can salvage his career.

Compeltely agree, Gallery in college looked like a sure-fire Hall of Fame lineman. Now I doubt he makes it unless a miracle happens in Oakland and they're offense starts working.

RaiderNation 02-25-2007 07:41 PM

i wouldnt mind thomas now since we announced gallery at rt. only way we get him is a trade down though.

Freddy G 02-25-2007 07:41 PM

I would still give him a chance at LT, he has too much talent just to be cast to the right side at this point.

He wouldn't be "cast" to the right side. To begin with he as a G in college and should be playing G respectively. So for him to ultimately move to the right side should help him out tremendously.

dcrls 02-25-2007 07:47 PM

i wish backus would agree to move to RT, then there would be 99.9% chance that the lions would draft thomas.

Sveen 02-25-2007 07:49 PM

Strongest possibility is Staley at #33. Still possible that they take Thomas at #1 though.

HawkeyeFan 02-25-2007 07:51 PM

Wow. I feel bad for Gallery, maybe people would keep the 'bust' tag off of him if he wouldn't be moved around so much.

Yea, I love Gallery personally and I think the only reason he hasn't been labeled a bust so far is merely because of the freak athlete he is.

Smooth Criminal 02-25-2007 10:09 PM

I've been trying to get people to look at Thomas as the pick for awhile now. I'd take him with the 1st overall pick. My strategy in Oakland would be to build an O-line starting with the tackles by getting Thomas and moving Gallery to the right side. Once you have an O-line in place you get your franchise QB to play behind them for years to come.

So the Oakland fans just have to be patient with the offense and let them build it right.

Uh...he was a tight end that got moved to tackle in college.

His senior year he played G is what I was refering to. What he played coming out of highschool is pointless.

No he didn't. He played LT every single game from his sophmore year through graduation.

draftguru151 02-25-2007 10:16 PM

I am 99% sure Gallery did not play OG in college.

B-Dawk 02-25-2007 10:32 PM

another year another position and or scheme, so much for ever becoming comfortable

doingthisinsteadofwork 02-25-2007 11:02 PM

At least we have a good Oline Coach in Cable.Hopefully he can save Gallery's career.

MichaelJordanEberle (sabf) 02-26-2007 12:30 AM

O-Line is all about coaching. A good O-Line coach can make an average O-Line great. Or a craptastic O-line at least serviceable.

Grid 02-26-2007 01:04 AM

I think his mechanics is all screwed up with all the moving around and coaching changes. I think he would do well if they leave him in one position.

To tell you the truth, I feel very bad for him. He was a stud at Iowa and genuine franchise LT material.

Caddy 02-26-2007 01:06 AM

Joe Thomas is definitely a possibility now, but like others say I think Staley in the 2nd would be a better fit

Shiver 02-26-2007 01:43 AM

Would they really take Thomas though? I mean, he is getting compared to two guys who aren't exactly elite Left Tackles either. As in Jordan Gross and, well, Robert Gallery.

toonsterwu 02-26-2007 01:54 AM

I still don't see the Thomas move at 1. Too many other needs to warrant such a move. If Staley is around early 2nd, then that'll be a strong likelihood, although I wonder if they may wait later, for a guy like Adam Koets or perhaps a Ryan Harris.
