    I'm cool with the clean slate so players feel they have an equal shot. Maybe he's talented enough to watch a guy in camp for 10 minutes and see his flaws but it can't be like watching game film.

    I have no idea what an offseason is like for someone on the OL. I assume they run/lift but you never hear of a group of OL getting together and working out with experts on technique like you do other positions.

    Let me ask you this. If you knew 100 percent that ramsey would have a career like troy p. Would you take him first overall then?

    One day we will be asking if Troy P career matches up to Ramseys.

    Spoiler alert: it wont

    What if you knew Tunsil's career would mirror Orlando Pace?

    He's okay at LG, bad at RT. Depth signing and may not even make the final roster, similar situation with Blake. I also think it's crazy to think signing Byron Bell has any influence on our #1 pick...

    Uhh dude... You obviously misunderstood my point.

    I have wanted us to draft Ramsey since about October/November... And I remained in that position when we secured the #1 spot. That said, a DB has NEVER been taken #1. Not that I agree with that sentiment, but there is a reason for it. They may not be an every play impact player like DL/OL are.

    What I meant with that post is that absolutely nothing we have done in FA signals Ramsey or Tunsil. Yet everyone here keeps saying "this means Ramsey is coming home," etc. There's no logic behind that reasoning. That was the point of my post.

    I still want Ramsey at #1... But I admit if I were a GM and our OL looks the way it does now, I might feel compelled to take Tunsil.

    Same thing I was thinking last year with Mariota. I personally wanted Winston and if he was gone as expected, I wanted to trade back or take Williams/Cooper... But if you're the GM and you have a complete question mark at QB and on the hot seat, you'd pretty much have to take a shot on Mariota.

    Similar situation this year IMO.

    Serious historical question.... When was the last time a team spent two firsts in 3 years on LTs with the first LT playing the position fine? And top 12 picks at that

    After going Tackle, Tackle in the 2nd and 3rd round in 2012 the Chiefs went Tackle again the next year after it was learned Jeff Allen wasn't an NFL Tackle.. Thats close to what youre asking.
