Love this. I don't want a rookie C in there snapping to Tom if that can be at all helped. I think I remember Koppen missing a few plays at one point this year, and things were flat out disorganized.
I could see most fans being happy with something like this:
--Draft Pouncey and maybe another "value" guy
--Start Light, Mankins, Koppen, Pouncey, Vollmer in 2010
--2011 draft, pick up more value at either G or T.
in seasons beyond that, say farewell to Light + Koppen and move Vollmer over, insert Pouncey at C, and then insert ??? at RT + RG. Obviously you'd need to plan this carefully to avoid having a really weak right side if, for instance, both Light and Koppen leave in 2011.
