    Does anyone see Long as an option in the 3rd round? He could play guard and switch to tackle eventually to replace Roos or Stewart in a few years.

    He's an option sure, but not one I wanna explore. I'm hoping we land our RG in the 2nd.

    I don't think we need another lineman in the 3rd round.. we'll be taking a Guard in the first two, I can guarantee you that. Roos and Stewart have several years left so I'm not worried about that.

    Our O-line next season will be:
    Roos, Rookie, Velasco, Levitre, Stewart. We also have Rob Turner for depth. We have too many other needs at CB/DE/WR to draft two lineman in the first three rounds.

    I doubt he will be there in rd 3 but if he is of course you take a look. A solid prospect with some versatility. Barrett Jones could be around as late as our 4th rd pick and he is somebody to look at.

    As i have said before, trade back a handful of picks, take Fluker and get an extra third rd pick. having three third picks would allow us to take a player like him and still address some greater needs.

    You never can have too many good linemen on either side.

    He'll go to the Rams, to complete the trio of Longs.

    Actually I was kinda thinking we should nab him in round 2. I mean who better to coach a raw offensive tackle with insane athletic ability other than Matthews/Munch? Oh, he won't be on the board in the 3rd, at least I highly doubt it.

    I think he is in play with our 2nd...Warford or Long in the 2nd.
