I agree here, but whats the alternative? Looking at where we hope to finish this year i think we would be hard pressed to find an LT that can come in and play straight away (in 2008)
as we would hopefully
be picking from 15-20 in the 1st round. Im sure whoever we would take would have to sit for a while too, and that means more Gandy.
What im saying is, get Gaither now, give him most part of this year, (more time than we would give a 1st rounder next year when Gandy's even more lackluster play in 2008 would force a rookie to be thrown into the fire)
to learn the position, and start day 1 next year. This way we would have a guy with almost unprecidented upside, who has had more time to acclimatise himself than a 2008 1st round LT, but yet starting, and making an impact earlier than a 2008 1st round tackle.
All this while still having our 1st rounder to use somewhere else. Im thinking NT, SS MLB or a BPA that falls at another position.
Whats that NT's name Red..something. I like what ive red about him, he could be an option
