We have Koppen, the fragile Neal, Connolly, and backup Wendell. Yet, Ohrnberger made the Practice Squad. Bussey and Larsen are gone. ========================== Is the lesson that we now need to use a 1st or 2nd to get OL quality as we once did with Mankins? Or is the lesson that interior linemen just aren't that important? If the late draft picks don't work in filling the obvious need, we'll just go out and get an Ojinnaka and plug him in with wannabees like Connolly and Wendell. =========================== After all, we went into both the 2009 and 2010 draft understanding the following. 1) Our underwhelming center needing backup and competition. 2) Our starting RG was extremely injury prone. He would likely to need another starter to replace him for some games in 2009 and 2010. 3) Our starting LG was on his contract year in 2009 and would be a free agent if there was a CBA extension or at best an unhappy 6th year RFA. 4) Our backups were Connolly and Wendell. 5) Kaczur might or might not be real option at one of the THREE positions of need in the interior line. We still don't know. 6) Going into the 2009 draft, we had zero guards signed for the 2010 season. The situation was so severe that we drafted Ohrnberger and Bussey! and then added Larsen in 2010! Am I missing something? ============= I am NOT preaching impending doom. I am just openly wondering what so many of have missed for the last two years when we were sure that we needed help at OG, DE and OLB.
