i keep seeing posters in various threads remark about how our O-line needs to be fixed before we draft a QB. this is usually followed by how we need to use our 1st-rd pick on an O-lineman.
admittedly, i used to think this way -- i am not a fan of Loadholt, McKinnie is past his prime and we have no stud interior lineman save for Hutch (who is also getting up there in age). but as we progress closer to the draft and we hear about our offense
possibly probably moving away from a zone blocking scheme, i'm wondering whether or not we need to jump to conclusions so quickly.
for the purposes of this poll, consider you are in complete control of our drafting needs for the 1st round, and only the 1st round. should we draft an O-lineman with our top pick?? or can we afford to wait until the later rounds (or next year) before taking a high-grade OT, G or C??
feel free to share your thoughts!!
If you had control of who we drafted, would you be willing to give our current O-Line the benefit of the doubt and see how they perform in a new scheme before using a 1st-rd pick on a lineman??
Yes -- a new offensive scheme might prove to be beneficial, and we can find O-line talent later in the draft (12 votes)
No -- we need to draft a top O-lineman in the 1st round (either at #12 or trade down and get one later in the 1st) (36 votes)
I'm cautiously optimistic with what we have, but if the BPA is a lineman, let's take him (24 votes)
We need help on the O-line, but we need to address other positions first with our top pick (28 votes)
