Titans start two 7th rounders

But anyway, my point (which I'm sure I'd get to eventually) is that a bunch of high draft picks does not make a good offensive line. A top level QB with a bunch of free agent and late round linemen is better than a scrub QB with a bunch of top level linemen. See Matt Ryan

I don't think I, or anyone else calling for a QB in the first round, is saying ignore the line. Just that we can address the line with later picks
We traded one of our late picks for Jason Taylor.

But the only one of those teams who has a top flight QB is New Orleans...and that guy was picked in the 2nd round. And then didn't become that top QB for four years.

Yeah I would like to have the Brooks and Henson picks back and exchange them for linemen

I guess what I'm saying is that building the OL through the late rounds would involve a major organizational philosophy change, which is supposedly what getting this great franchise quarterback is supposed to shortcut.

Phil Loadholt comes to mind. He wasn't selected to the 5th round in the last draft but has already been placed on the vikings starting line.

Re: Our 2010 First Round Draft Pick Should Be...

The other thing I'm saying, is that if Quarterback is really an issue, we should put our money where our mouths are, and get the right guy for the new system, all the while, using our draft picks to bring in young talent that will get this team back where it needs to be.

We can buy better quarterback play. We can't buy a better organization.

Loadholt was picked in the middle of the second.

Jamon Meredith. Or Duke Robinson.

Meredith is starting for the Bills this week. Of course, he was drafted by the Packers, who cut him.

Robinson is a backup in Carolina.

I'd say the best line is the deepest line.

With 5 guys starting there's tons of margin for injury.

Re: Our 2010 First Round Draft Pick Should Be...

For those of you that keep up a bit better with college football than me, what QBs are available, and what's their MO? Who are the blue chippers?

Personally Bradford's shoulder and McCoy in general scares me. Who would be worthy of our pick? Clausen?

Re: Our 2010 First Round Draft Pick Should Be...

No blue chippers, lots and lots of guys with the NFL skill set and necessary college experience.

Clausen
Pike
McCoy
Bradford
LeFeveour
Tebow
Robinson

Probably the best of the group. There's also Jake Locker who has the skill set, but not the experience or any accomplishment factor.

I thought I heard he should be able to transition to LT pretty easily in the NFL, or maybe I confused him with someone else

I see what you are saying about the line and other teams picking in later round. But don't you think drafting a lineman later might be more of a crapshoot than getting a better overall talented OL in the first round since it's so urgent for us to protect the QB? Plus Ryan Clady, Jake Long, Jeff Otah & etc. the franchise tackles are usually picked in the first round more talent is there.
