    Cap space for 2019

    I do agree with everything. I am just merely feeding off the posts that have came about. Look when I comes down to it, Lewan is a young stud LT that has a good amount of football ahead of him. He is not going anywhere. If he were 31 or on the Bengals (this is a joke) I could see him possibly hitting the market.

    Cap space for 2019

    Again if you could please read the multiple comments above...I am not saying this is going to happen or anything. It is all a hypothetical based on a posters comments and me responding to him. I know a LT is a premium spot...not doubting that. I know they require money and teams have money...I know that. Supe the only thing I will say based on your comment is exactly my thought towards this (again hypothetical) comment and that is Conklin. You say he could be problematic but yet no one has seen a snap in 2018. He could be solid and they go from there. Again, I am not saying any of this will happen.

    Cap space for 2019

    Where as I do not disagree with you this my comments are based on the hypothetical happening. At no point am I saying this is going to happen. Now I can say that there have been teams like the Bengals who have let a lot of talent walk out the door. It is always a possibility just like re-signing him is. Not sure their cap situation either but if they have a very tight line and he is wanting 15+ mil a year they might have to look another route. Again, hypothetical as I am not saying any of this will actually happen!

    I agree. But in some situations you never know I guess.

    Cap space for 2019

    Read and comment to the one I was commenting on... It was to the hypothetical that the Titans are strapped for cash and let him walk.

    Nelson at RT?

    I agree with you but as I commented back to NCF the wording could have been better directed. Regardless we do agree on the basic principle. Arm length has never been a huge issue to me. Just like hand size. If a guy shows signs of possibly being good at RT and has yet to take a pro snap, you do not deny him the opportunity merely because his arm length.

    Nelson at RT?

    Alright let me start with an apology because the word irresponsible was well irresponsible on my part... Now I am not trying to say this website or even article is holy grail but also I am saying this as a debate towards your typical view towards this topic. I personally have never seen a huge issue on hand size and arm length. Granted you want guys with 12 inch mits and 38 inch arms for your tackles, all understood, but skills can still be there with arms under 34 or even 33 inches.

    You are one that commonly keys in on the arm length thing. Read the article attached if you like. This is something that can be debunked if you will because there is no key issue with performance based on arm length. You do want longer arms and I will not argue that, but saying Smith has shorter arms so don't put him out there is simply irresponsible. https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/does-arm-length-affect-ot-play

    Sam Beal Pro Day - each team represented

    This is a good point though. I mean we still have picks to use and we can substitute the "extra" picks next year for something this year. I am curious to see how Ballard views both of them or even Brandon Bryant.

    If we go after Taylor Lewan we could drop Castonzo and only have a small 2.8 cap hit of dead money vs paying his 11.5 mil hit in 2019. Lewan will be looking at getting (well agent and the market will dictate) something like 15mil/year though probably. I would spend another 4 mil a year for a solid LT that would be 27 at that point. Get a good 4+ years out of him.

    The Good and the Lucky

    One HUGE thing you are missing in this statement is that the GM has to see a talented player that "fits in the coaching scheme". Just finding a player does not mean anything if he is a square peg getting jammed into a circle hole. Ballard has a coaching scheme on both offense and defense that he likes and scouts towards. He can now worry about guys that fit that scheme and not just hope to be "lucky". I think the steal will be both Deon Cain and Tyquan Lewis.

    If Slauson or even Mewhort manage to take the RG spot I would definitely like to see Smith get some looks at RT. I just love the idea that we actually have talent to complete for starting spots now. Fingers crossed that our line looks completely different than any of the previous 10 years or so.

    Nelson at RT?

    This is an off-season article. Random thoughts to keep the fan base engaged and reading stampede blue. Nelson is a premier Guard in the NFL based on all reports. Touted as a future All-Pro and we want to move him to RT? No thank you!

    Robert Turbin Suspended 4 Games

    The bolded I will say is based on him coming in to get 1 or 2 yards on 3rd down when everyone knows he is running. So I would not hold to much into that...just me anyways. I think Hines will be a good explosive player, but I personally think Wilkins will be a solid back for the future. This allows him to get good carries and Mack just needs to get healthy and learn to get between the tackles. Hopefully the new line opens stuff up.

    Robert Turbin Suspended 4 Games

    Where as I agree with the basic statement here, Turbin was not a deciding factor in our run game being anything. Mack (supposed starter), Hines, and Wilkins will be able to do fine for 4 games. Turbin does provide one thing that hopefully Wilkins can now, and that is short yards. 3rd and 1 or 3rd and 2.
