Guessing Udoh is already penciled in as a starter for this season. or at least, that is about the only explainantion for our lack of activity in bringing in a starting caliber oline player(s).
We know Cole is a starter because around here $2.2 million/year is a big-time OL salary.
What will really suck is when Spielman talks about how he upgraded the OL... signed free agents from other teams, resigning our own free agents, how he was so incredible maneuvering in the draft to get the players they wanted, blah, blah, joe bag o donuts and joe six pack have a world of potential, slobber, spit, vomit.
And then we will draft a guy who has played offensive tackle his entire career in the 3rd round and promptly move him to guard because our talent evaluators are so much smarter than everybody else.
Since the draft is teeming with 6' 7" top heavy guys whose colleges would not dare to let them play guard, our problems at guard are solved!
"We love their footwork. As you know, we picked Brian O'Neill who is a perennial All-Pro. Computer feet. We thought, hey why not get a bunch of light in the pants types and build the entire line out of them. Perfect for our vaunted zone blocking scheme. Which, when you really dissect it, is about how quickly you can get off the turf and get back to the huddle. You know, get bull rushed, reverse pancaked, shake it off. Short memory guys, yeah we love them."
