    His beard has tremendous upside. While it may take a season or two to develop into its full potential, I can see it competing with the other starting linemen soon. I just hope we don't get those "that beard is made of glass" comments too soon.

    If that's the case, Belichick should have drafted Doug Datish in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL Draft rather than Clint Oldenburg.

    Considering the Jets traded practically every pick to move up twice in the 2007 NFL Draft .........

    Oldenburg has potential ... it's going to take him a few years.
    I wish we had kept him because he has RT/TE potential.
    He was a former D-lineman so he's a few years away.

    Meanwhile Doug Datish played three different positions on the offensive line while at Ohio State.

    No Jersey Selected

    Or, if the FO was looking for a possible LT of the future, it should have drafted Adam Koets, of the NY Football Giants.

    Oldenburg, like everyone else drafted by the NEP on the second day, would have been available with its second 7th-round pick, or as UDFAs.

    I hope that some LBs and RBs are also signed to futures contracts. Heck, we could use a couple of them right now.
