Re: Time to Build an Offensive Line

I'm kinda glad we didn't pick up Clifton, I think we need to get our LT of the future in the draft, and nothing would make me happier than having Okung be that LT of the future. I do hope we pick up Pashos, he'd be a huge upgrade over Heyer at RT.

Yeah, we need a guy that we're fairly confident will hold up for us.

Agreed.

Re: Time to Build an Offensive Line

If we can get a few rookies or younger folks growing and learning together it'll be like a real group of lineman. Like the Hogs or any succesful group that grows, matures and progresses together. Shanahan has a much longer leash than Zorn had. He has time to think about the future. Zorn had no chance to win with an old team that wasn't ever really his in any way. Okung and more Oline.

Re: Time to Build an Offensive Line

Drafting Okung would give us an OLine of LT Okung, LG Dockery, C Rabach, RG Williams and RT Levi Jones. Heyer, and Reinhart as backups. I'd like to bring back Jansen (though I think I'm the only one) and another serviceable FA backup (Hank Fraley or David Bass). This would allow us to draft another lineman or two in rounds 4-7.

I'm glad we didn't get Clifton, and for that matter I'd be ok if no free agents are signed other than rookie undrafted ones (I do hope Pierce comes back but it isn't likely). I know that might not be practical, but at the same time, this looks like at least a moderate rebuilding effort and they've got to get young bodies in to compete.

Edwin Williams may pan out as a diamond in the rough, but the fact that Rabach was re-signed could mean they have confidence in him to develop, or it could mean that they'll just rely on CR for a year or 2 till they can draft a center. E. Williams was undrafted, they'll have to find more guys like that this year.

Re: Time to Build an Offensive Line

After reading this I am pretty happy that Clifton left town. Congrats to him for getting paid.
