Drafting an OL
If I had my druthers we would take a DT with our #12 pick to replace Pat, or move back a couple spots to get another pick. From there I would like to see us go QB in round 2 as I feel Mallet, Dalton, and Capernick will still be there. But its a crapshoot!

Drafting an OL
If we don't absolutely love any of the QBs I would be fine with us taking either the best DL or Julio Jones/AJ Green.I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

Solder, most boards top T, got handled at the Senior Bowl and continues to slip steadily down most boards.
Costonzo has issues related to how high he plays. Seems he will struggle against smaller/faster DE's.
Smith, like Solder, was initially considered a top 10 pick, now they have him ranked in the high teens.
Pouncey, initially the top C (think that was mostly related to his brothers rep) has slipped a bunch and has been replaced by a cat named Wisniewski as the top C and he is rated at the bottom of the first round.
So, to answer your question, I wouldn't take one. None of them appear to be better than what we already have at this point, unless you think that we should reach for one of the Centers.
Because of the scheme change (blocking) I think the staff might consider it if they believe (as most of us) that Sully or Coop aren't big enough to be anything other than a ZBing Center.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
Re: Drafting an OL
I believe that unless the front end of the draft leaves us with no other option we will be taking something other than an OL with that pick. The class just doesn't seem to have a bunch of elite OL but a bunch of second tier talent that we can get in later rounds and FA and UDFA

From my vantage point, this sure seems to be one of the most mediocre drafts in along time.
Not saying their isn't talent, I'm just saying that with a few exceptions, all the players seem to be about the same with the same kindof (quality) player that is in the first can be found in the 2nd and 3rd.
In the end, I just don't see anyone using multiple picks to get any of these guys especially with the uncertainty of the CBA and the extra importance on picks this year.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
