    Even then, Poutassi shouldn't even be a RT. He literally has to beat Byron Bell, who ranked as one of the worst OTs in the NFL last year. Poutassi then gets to battle with Levitre (and hopefully wins) for LG.

    Lewan - Warmack - Schwenke - Poutassi - Collins

    w/ Byron Bell, Josue Matias, Byron Stingily, Andy Gallik, and Jamon Meredith battling for backup spots.

    That would be a massively improved line, very young, and actually has a future to build with our young weapons.

    I hear you, but it's not going to happen. We have to pray they sign Barksdale and that we get adequate play this year until we can draft someone next year or get a FA/Trade.

    I'd love Barksdale, but I dont think that will even happen. I think we're set with what we have, which is sad. We have $$ and there's talent out there still.

    Dam, he went to Dallas................the rich get richer.

    To add him to that offensive line is almost unfair, that o-line is just sick.

    I think I could rush for 1,000 yards behind that line:D

    I am upset that our front office prejudged this young man and wrote him off. I can't guarantee that he will be dominant, but here is a first round talent (top 15-20) that the Cowboys plucked for basically free (3-yr/1.7 fully-guaranteed contract). We didn't even call to see if he would be interested in fighting for a starting job. He was immediately taken off of our draft board and not even discussed in free agency because the police wanted to question him. He was not accused of anything, they just wanted to question him and we didn't even make an effort to once again address an issue that he may have been able to solve for us (RT).

    We could have selected the top right tackle in this draft in the 4th round (TJ Clemmings), but we took him off of our board because he had a stress fracture (that he was unaware of and continued to perform with). Instead we select a player in the 3rd round that had a 5th round grade (Poutasi) and pickup a free agent tackle from Carolina that was rated as the worst in the league last year and his name isn't Michael Oher. We selected a talented knucklehead in the second round but skip over others that haven fallen in the draft because of injury. Is our medical staff so incompetent that they can't forsee full recoveries or do they just assume that he has an injury so he won't fully heal and we should not select him? This is why we continue to struggle.

    Our scouting department is the worst in the league and they have been for several years. The only reason we were successful previously (before it started going downhill) is because Floyd Reese was a good evaluator of talent (not perfect, but good).

    Sorry for the rant, but whoever our future quarterback is will have issues with protection because I don't think we addressed them in the draft.
