    Loadholt is too tall to play Guard. I like grimes and Rogers too....

    You do realize that Carl Nicks is 6'5? What's 3 inches. Especially when Dree Brees is 6'0 compared to Ponder at 6'2.

    Harvin in 2009. You are complaining that we are drafting another WR in the first round 3 years later?
    Have you noticed no one is ever open? We have no one that makes plays for us besides Percy. Have you noticed that the packers aren't afraid to draft WRS ever single draft with 1st and 2nd round picks? Have you noticed we suck and anyone added will help this team
    Get your facts straight before you're condescending in ignorant self-righteousness.

    Loadholt would be really big to play guard. His height would be a issue. I am not totally against trying it in the right situation, he would have to be the right guard, because throwing the other way with that height in his way would not work for Ponder.

    I personally don't love it. He is just a tough spot. He is too large to play tackle real effectively ... and he might just be too tall to play guard effectively. But I would be for giving him a shot.

    Speaking of Nicks ... lets go get him and not have to worry much about this discussion.

    Everyone says that but the difference in height between Brees and Nicks and Ponder and Loadholt is comparable.

    As well, when you're a QB, you're playing straight up. Ponder stands at 6'2".

    When playing guard, you should be in a low stance to get leverage. I'm only 5'8", but in a blocking stance I'm below 5' easily, Load SHOULD be under 6' while blocking. If he's playing proper technique, he should be the lowest guy, so really, height isn't an issue as the DL player will be playing higher than Load will.

    I'm content with someone who can actually block at RG, I dont' care if he's not the ideal height. Just block the damn guy. I'm sure AP/Gerhart won't mind that he's a tall mofo.

    Agreed. DO you worry about a few missed throws a season or having your QB constantly pounded?

    When was the last time we had a QB who played straight up? It seems to me they spend at least as much time flat on their back. lol

    Daunte Culpepper in the early 2000's?

    Yep. That was what I was thinking. The last time we had a decent OL
