    May 7th will be the important date, as any free agents won't count against the comp picks. Apart from Suh not 100% sure who is still available. Be interesting to see what happens over the next month or so.

    I wouldn't expect many NE moves. Roster is pretty full and not much caproom anyway. The one thing I hope we get is another DT, preferably Shelton

    There will be plenty of moves like every year. Plenty of cap for 2nd part of FA.

    I agree about the position. I suspect that is in part why they did not draft a DT once they missed out on the top guys. I personally would prefer Allen Bailey to Shelton and would not at all be surprised if they had verbally agreed on a contract prior to the draft with him, with the understanding that the deal cannot be consummated until after the seventh.

    Cannot build upon last years running success without adequate tackle depth ...
    He seems more than adequate as a backup/sometimes starter.

    And yet, none of them can fill the position in question: OT of Germanic origins.

    Yeah, kind of disappointing. I'd still be thrilled to have him if his pass protection is on point, though.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Dutch, German, English, Danish, etc all trace their language to the germanic tribes of Roman times? So it is indeed a Germanic language? I don't think German and Germanic mean the same thing.

    What do dutch people call Germanic people? I'm guessing it's not Duits.

    a fine choice for swing tackle (a replacement for Waddle)

    If he's just average in both run and pass blocking, and inexpensive and durable, he's a fantastic get for swing tackle.
    That would mean that half of the OT's in the League are less capable than he is.
    You can win a lot of titles with backup players that are better than half the League.

    9 OL + 5 RB + 3 QB They usually carry 23/24 O players ... 6/7 spots for WR and TE

    Point 2. What is the point of having a ST if you gonna have 2? I understand that Wynn and Cajuste are rookies but it is what it is. On the other hand they can carry 2 TE one like Allen(Izzo) and the other with more upside of catching balls (ASJ) and 5 WR and the T will be a better player than our TE3

    If you ask me thinking about how it all fits together on the 53 is just too early right now. Right now this is about getting a deep and solid roster into camp and see who performs well there and comes out if healthy.

    And while your math makes sense to me things can happen fast where you go from 2 swing tackles to none.
