How are we replacing Dockery?

All this draft talk has gotten us off track...what are we planning to do about the fact that we have a huge hole to fill at guard?

Re: How are we replacing Dockery?

Todd Wade is the front runner.

Re: How are we replacing Dockery?

I'm really not sold on Wade as a replacement for Dockery. I think he's going to be quite a downgrade. Maybe somewhere in the draft we could get a LG prospect.

With mirrors and slight of hand.


Seriously, I guess Wade and a late round pick.

That's what we've said before then paid for it. I hope this doesn't really kill our line.

When healthy Wade is an above average left tackle. He is athletic and has very good technique. I think he is actually a significant upgrade over Dock. Sorry but Dock was only an average guard. Good run blocker but only below average pass blocker. Didn't pull all that athletically and made mental mistakes. I wanted to keep Dock for the sake of chemistry but Buffalo gave not just way too much but ridiculously too much. Wade will slid over and be fine. Durability is the issue.

Wow, I am very surprised at that comment. Dockery did a very good job last year, I just don't see Wade filling his shoes. But I hope you're right.

Re: How are we replacing Dockery?

Dock was solid but nothing overly special. Certainly not worth $49M that's for sure. I think Wade is a good short-term solution.

Well I agree that I'm not 100% sold on Wade, but I would have to think that anyone we would draft wouldnt start anyways.

Re: How are we replacing Dockery?

Switch Wade to Jansens spot, and Jansen to the LG spot. Or, not!

Durability is an issue for Wade. Hope he holds up.

Re: How are we replacing Dockery?

Looks like Wade is going to be the man, and before I go off talking about what he can, or cannot do or be, I'm going to wait for him to prove he can't do the job. If he proves he can't do the job then we'll look elsewhere, but until then, I have faith he can be the man.

Re: How are we replacing Dockery?

Guard is the easiest position to fill on the line and we have several viable candiates.

There are much bigger fish to fry.
