I think the idea was to have a vet to back up Roullier if and when he gets hurt again. Risky given Roulier's injury history but Gates isn't starter material.

Re: Draft grades

Same reason the Redskins picked Amerson earlier than they should have several years back.

Good chance Roullier ends up getting cut.

Re: Draft grades

Would be cool if Stromboni can beat out Gates.

Leno
Paul
Stromboni
Cosmi
Wylie

Gates as No. 1 swing C/G.
Daniels as No. 1 swing T.

Really hope we can add a legitimate swing tackle after the post-draft cuts that will be coming up. Don't think Daniels playing year 1 at T would be the best if Leno or Wylie go down.

Daniels needs work, if he's the first tackle off the bench we're in trouble

Re: Draft grades

Lucas is our swing Tackle. I don’t think was paid Gates to sit

Re: Draft grades

I would be surprised if we don't sign a vet tackle before the training camp.

Re: Draft grades

Lucas is washed. Hopefully the swing tackle for 2023 isn't on the team yet.

Can't expect 34 games from Leno and Wylie, so they need to get that handled.

Add to that an OC that will hopefully learn to adapt to situations and run the ball more.

Am I 100% confident on this o-line situation? No. But fans keep talking about as if we are rolling out the same line from last year.

Problem is that is 5 question marks. Not one guy there that you think “ok well we are set there”. Could they gel and improve because of reasons you mentioned? Yup. Could it be an absolute train wreck? Yup.

Cosmi and Wylie on the right side is solid. If Leno can play like he did in any year besides last season, he is solid too. He is only 31, so I think he can play better.

LG and C, yeah, not super confident about those at all.

We will be better than last season.

Leno
Traffic cone
Gates/Stromboli
Traffic cone
Wylie

This is an improvement over last season.

Stromboli was a 4 year starter. He can win the job.

Mason Brooks was signed as an un-drafted FA, supposedly 5 teams were interested in him. Commanders gave him a $35k bonus to outbid the others. Supposedly they really like this kid as a T.

Commanders signed Mason Brooks

Offensive Line | Ole Miss Rebels

Mason Brooks was an outstanding lineman for Western Kentucky – the same school that Mitchell Tinsley attended initially – playing both tackle and guard at a very high level.

He transferred to Ole Miss for his 2022 season and played mostly in reserve. But his physical tools – 6-foot-6 and 315 pounds – with good feet, and his smarts (he was a consistent honor roll student in college), have earned him a longer look in the pros.

A few months ago, Brooks was a first-round draft pick of the Memphis Showboats in the USFL. But he has opted to take a shot with the Washington Commanders after getting an offer in undrafted free agency.

Washington values positional flexibility. Brooks will probably kick inside to guard in the NFL, but he has ample experience at tackle and could be good in an all-purpose reserve role.

The Commanders’ interior line situation remains a work in progress. There are a lot of new pieces to juggle this season, and no one has a position locked up.

A spot on the final 53 may be a longshot, but Brooks should be competing with Aaron Monteiro, Nolan Laufenberg, and Keaton Sutherland for a couple of slots on the practice squad.
