While I would love to see Mankins sign a long term deal, and I think he has earned a record OG bonus, I do expect him to be franchised and I think if that happens, it will affect how BB drafts. Many have us drafting a Watkins or Pouncey or some other OG very early in the draft. Would franchising Mankins take these players off your draft boards and allow us to wait until much later to take an OG? Interesting that PFW has us taking Boling at #28. I have been a fan of Boling's for our offense since October and still think we take him at #60.
