Many of us would like to consider an OT at 23, 34 or somewhere in between with a trade up. The question that Box asked earlier is a good one. What do we expect the OT to do? See below for some options as we consider drafting an OT early. BTW, if all we want is an upgrade from O'Callaghan and Britt as a backup, we can wait until at least the third. LEFT TACKLE It is only on message boards that Light isn't a top LT. I have seen absolutely nothing to indicated that Belichick is in any way unhappy with Light. We might even consider extending him this year. He has two years left on his contract. Kaczur and LeVoir both adequate backups. We already have a decent prospect in LeVoir. It is not even clear that it is reasonable to use a 3rd for a LT. RIGHT TACKLE I like Kaczur as RT and backup LT. However, I can certainly understand that he can be upgraded. I would agree that a top RT who can start would upgrade the OL, especially with Kaczur in this contract year. There is clearly a need for a RT early or in 3rd or 4th. To me, if we want an upgrade at RT, we should draft a RT rather than a rookie who would expect to play RT and then be a LT later. To me, it would be even worse to take a pro-bowl or near pro-bowl LT and play him out of position to accomodate a rookie. That is NOT going to happen unless we were drafting a LT at #3 or #4 in the draft. MY CONCLUSIONS Our option will depend on who is left and how much of an upgrade the player is seen to be over Kaczur. After all, we could simply extend Kaczur. 1) Britton at 23 or 34 is fine pick. 2) Beatty will make someone a starting LT, not us (we have one). 3) If we don't draft a RT by 34 so, then we should wait until 89 or 97. 4) If you don't like LeVoir as a prospect AND don't like Kaczur as a backup LT, then we also need to draft backup LT, but understand that this player is at most a Game Day backup at LT and RT. SWING TACKLE A backup OT needs to be able to be the emergency backup at both tackle positions, or an injury would require shifting the line at two positions during the game (not terrible if it is practised.
