BACKGROUND The big questions are the health of Light and Koppen, and then there's Koppen's contract. My gut is that we can't count on Koppen. Many have said that we need one more stud to have an OL set until 2009. Extending Hochstein would help. ===================================== OFFENSIVE TACKLE I like Kayzur and see no reason to believe that he isn't a starting tackle. If Light isn't ready, we have Gorin who started last year. Do we really have a need. I'm OK with a 1st or 2nd round stud, but anythin later could get beaten out by Britt. BTW, I wouldn't be surprised to see Light come back at RT. Kayzur is doing fine at LT, and there is no reason to have learn a second position. Bottom line, I think this position is a longshot to be drafted. GUARD We have Mankins and Neal for years. CENTER We could use a center. Nick Mangold is the man, a reach at 21, but fine for a trade down a few spots. ====================================== BOTTOM LINE I think that Mangold should be on anyone's first round board. A second day center is also fine. Maybe Raiola from Wisconsin, Montgomery from Viginia Tech or even Pat Ross from BC.
