Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

There's no value with the free agent receivers. Even Morgan is going to get a ton of money.

There's enough bargains out there where if we wait until April, you can get a good receiver off FA for less than $2 million (Braylon Edwards, Chaz Schilens, Early Doucet, Jerome Simpson) on a one year show me deal, and I think we should. It would make a ton more sense than bringing Stallworth back. But big money for any of these FA receivers is a bad idea.

The draft is/was far more promising. And the trade market is intriguing because it's a buyer's market.

Not a bad idea.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

So much for keeping this an o-line only thread

Anyway, back to the subject of the thread. What is the deal with McNeil, one moment he's a top LT in the league and the next he's being cut. Does he have health issues or something. I would like for the Skins to shore up the RT position and not roll the dice with J. Brown again.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

Since March FA is so thin at OT, maybe we can find a FA right tackle after the June 1 round of cuts.

Pretty much, I was gonna go back and bump a random Hanyesworth thread and just open with "which WR free agent should we get Legudu Naane or Eric Weems?"

I think the market have a load of injury prone, vetern tackles, but that doesnt really solve our problem. Just dont overpay if we do it. I just dont want to see Jamaal Brown pass block for us anymore, its like playing craps...its just a matter of time.

I read somewhere that we may need to go with a veteran at RT since the options are not that great out there.

Maybe. And we probably won't even have to wait until June 1st to find out who that is, since teams can designate a player they cut as a "June 1st" casualty in order to release him sooner.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

Are there any 3rd round RT projected as starting caliber?

If they were right-away starting caliber they likely would not be in the third round.

Personally the only trade up into the second move that I would like would be a trade-up to get OT Mike Adams.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

I think MS and BA did a good job finding good prospects in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th rounds last year. We have four picks in those three rounds, so I would be fine with the staying put and doing their thing again.

Didn't say anything about trading up.

My question is about the third round prospects:
Which of the this year's third round RT could start and become this season's Jared Veldeer?

I know you didn't say anything about trading up. I did not mean to put words in your mouth. But you did mention starter. 3rd round starters are very rare...or they would not be third rounders...hence the trade-up mention.

But to go with the spirit of your question, IMO perhaps Nate Potter from Boise St. can be had in the 3rd or 4th and be developed into a starter. He has the Shanny build.

Yeah. In the middle rounds, you can either address needs or try to take whatever starters are remaining on your board. You just need to get incredibly lucky to do both.

Tight end starters with good upside are typically there in the middle rounds. Although this is kind of a weak year for TEs.
