I'm hoping you meant LT otherwise your credibility is eroding quickly. Centers are rarely drafted above the mid 2nd, early 3rd round. The best center in our division (arguably) Jamal Jackson of the Eagles was an undrafted free agent out of Delaware State and he was a starter his 2nd year.

RT is the most important spot on the line? I always thought it was LT. Well, I guess it could be RT if you have a lefty at QB.

Then I'd go Oher or Orakpo...preferrably Oher.

You guys think there is any chance Curry would fall to 13? probably not right...sigh
I think a top 4 OLineman or DLineman would be fine in this position...or Rey

I might tinkle with joy if that were to happen, but I doubt it would.

I chose Oher, but let's say if he isn't there then A. Smith if he is there.. But if both Ts are not there, then Orapko.. I have to admit, I'm starting to like the idea of drafting Orapko; he could immediately fill in the two glaring positions for defense (just like Matty just said in earlier post).. However T is still a priority, JC won't be able to throw touchdowns if he doesn't have enough time in pocket..

Re: Please Draft ??? at #13

Unfortunately, there's not a true DE on the list to pick from. Next to Haynesworth, a DE would have a hell of a lot more of an impact to the team than an OT or LB would.

Drafting a pure LB with our 1st pick should be out of the question as this draft is extremely deep in LBs. Theres not enough of a difference in an LB here and one we could find in the 3rd round to make the move worthwhile. Assuming we go for 2 of the 3 needs (OT/LB/DE) with our 1st and 3rd round picks, we will find a hell of alot better LB in the 3rd round than we could an OT or DE, so it makes more sense to go with one of those two positions with our first pick.

Also, of these three needs, LB is the position we are deepest at presently, and its the position we can get even deeper at simply by resigning marcus washington. If you agree that DE is our greatest need, then drafting Orakpo or Maybin would be comparitively foolish, since he'll be playing LB on 1st and 2nd downs and DE on 3rd. Which is why i'd go with Everett Brown or Robert Ayers if theyre on the board at 13. Think about it - which front 7 would you prefer:

1. Carter, Griffin, Haynesworth, Ayers
McIntosh/Thomas, Fletcher and Washington/Blades

OR

2. Carter, Griffin, Haynesworth, Wynn/Daniels
McIntosh, Fletcher, Orakpo or Maualuga

To me, the first option presents a far more dominant defense, but thats just my opinion.

If we're picking at 13, Andre Smith is the most likely OT to be there, and he's got two knocks against him: 1. Questionable character, drive, work ethic, etc. 2. He can't play LT (where as Oher has the potential to play LT and allow Samuels to move right and prolong his career). In the end, if available, I feel either Ayers or Brown would be the safest, most prudent investment to make at 13.

If it were up to me, and we had to pick a player at 13 (no trading up or down), this is how i would fill our teams 3 primary "conventional wisdom" needs:

DE - (First Round Pick) Robert Ayers, Tennessee
OT - (Third Round Pick) T.J. Lang, Eastern Michigan
LB - Resign Marcus Washington and sign the best OLB available in the 5th round.

Sanchez, were getting next year Number 1 overall if he'd stayed another year at USC. That way if Campbell fails, Colt and Sanchez fight it out.

If you draft a quarterback, instead of an offensive tackle in the 1st round. You pretty much seal Jason's fate anyway.

Quick, someone publicize a terrible rumor about Curry...he eats babies or something like that...then maybe he'll fall to us.
