The problem with that is it’s not Ballard’s MO. He wants to build through the draft. I can’t see him signing 2 starting OGs.
Not to mention that Nelson will step on the field and already be a top 10 guard in the NFL, much like Martin. It’s not a guarantee that Ballard will take him or that he’ll be there for us, but he deserves serious consideration.
I'll be there Sunday, super cheap tickets lured me in!!!! Trying to tamper my optimism a bit, but hey you never know we could come out of there with a win, been a while since I've been there and they won!!!!
Thats the key there. Right price and length. A few of the guys are going to want more money than they’re worth. Melvin for example. He’ll probably want 4 years and $10 million per but he’s not worth that. I’d take him on a 1 year deal but he’ll want to test the market. Unless a bunch of the guys on the list will settle for 1-2 year deals, most of them walk. Remember Ballard’s words: Raise your own
