2010
1st round - TW - good so far minus drug abuse
7th round - Erik Cook - fail
7th round - Selvish Capers - fail

2011
7th round - Maurice Hurt - shows promise
I understand what you're saying. Mike Shanahan micro manages like no other coach in charge of personnel in the NFL. He looks meticulously for excellent linemen in the later rounds because he feels it's key to draft the players of key positions in the early to mid rounds and to find excellent depth with offensive linemen in the late rounds of any drafts. I haven't checked Shanahan's record on such, but I'm really not sure if he's ever drafted an offensive lineman within the first three rounds of any drafts except Trent Williams.

Great point. I feel like Shanny historically has done well finding WRs in later rounds as well, but hasn't been as successful with the Skins. I wonder how much Bruce Allen is to blame. His draft record in Tampa was terrible. I do feel like last year's draft was our best though. Hopefully, Shanny & Allen are beginning to gel.

So any linemen named Ryan available in the 3rd or 4th?

Looks like the plan is to roll into 2012 with the OL as is. I wouldn't be surprised to see a developmental RT picked in the 3rd or with one of our 4th round picks.
