I think it depends on what the Raiders do honestly. I would say their biggest weakness is OT so if they take Conklin or Decker there's a chance Smith drops.

 

Remember these words: Jaylon Smith WILL be the best player in this class.

I agree with you. I think he slips a little but not all the way to 18 for the Colts. A team in the top 10 probably won't because those teams either have new head coaches or coaches currently on the hotseat and they'll likely be under pressure to bring in immediate help. The Raiders with a second year coach in Del Rio and a clear rising trajectory makes sense, but like you said, they do need an OT to protect Carr.

I do like Boone but I highly doubt Grigson goes after him.

I could see Grigson going after Mack

 

If we signed Mack and drafted Whitehair our OL would be really good. But I had rather sign Osemele and draft a Center in the 2nd.

You better have a back-up to Osemele....   because odds are that Baltimore will find a way to keep him....

 

And then what?

 

Who is your target instead?

I think we need to go all in for Osemele. But if he stays in Baltimore, I think our best bet is to draft Whitehair and sign Alex Mack. I think Whitehair is going to be really, really good, but I'd still hate to use our 1st rounder on a G. That's why I think we should go all in for Osemele and use our 1st on D. But there are some other free agent guards that would be good options. Brandon Brooks, Alex Boone, Ramon Foster, Jeff Allen, or even Ritchie Incognito. But IMO those guys aren't as good as Osemele. Brandon Brooks is too inconsistent IMO. Incognito was actually better than Osemele this year but he's getting older and he's never been as good as he was this year. It wouldn't surprise me at all if we sign Mack honestly. But I worry about him a little too. He wasn't as good as usual this year. But I'm thinking its because of injury issues. But then again he's also on the wrong side of 30. IDK. There's several possibilities, and I think we'll figure it out one way or another and have a much better line next year.

Thanks.....     appreciate the thoughtful response.....

 

Believe me,  I'd be thrilled if somehow Baltimore doesn't keep him and we manage to sign him....

 

I'm just trying to cover ourselves in case we never get a chance to step-up and offer him.

 

We can't draft our way out of having a poor line.    Free Agency is going to have to play a part in fixing this.

 

Whether it's a center or a guard -- or even both -- and then we draft a tackle,  I'm beyond exhausted in having a subpar o-line.      I still think we can get a good OL in R2,  and save R1 for the pass rush.

 

Grab a corner in R3 and I think the team will look dramatically better....   (at least,  that's my hope!)

You can remove Incognito off your wish list of guards. The hiring of Joe Philbin throws that one out the window lol.

He's not the smart pick at that spot. That would be a major reach, disregarding the BPA ideology used now

I don't know about Turner. But I'm with you. It wouldn't surprise me if we do sign Mack.

 

Edit: BTW. I don't know what happened with my reply. your post just disappeared but the box is still there. LOL I don't know what's up with that bro. I must have done it someway or another, though.

I think that this is really turning into a good center draft.  Nick Martin and Ryan Kelly would be good 2nd rounders.  Graham Glasgow (Michigan) is coming on at East West Shrine and could join them in the 2nd.  Matt Tuerk (USC) is a wildcard whose medicals will be key, and Jack Allen is a mid-round guy who would STILL be an upgrade for us (eventually).  With this many possibilities, along with my skepticism towards Wiesniewski and Mack, I'd definitely target a center as early as practical in the draft (2nd, with any luck).

 

As far as OG, I'd target Brandon Brooks (Texans) or Mike Harris (Vikings) in FA.  We'll overpay, but we can get our man and add a much-needed veteran presence to the interior of the line.

    • Not sure if we're better, but I think we have more hope. I for one, am just happy we checked the box. And I'm growing more confident it works out.
    • Not sure if it was ever a "character" issue. Sounds more like attitude to me. Purely my opinion, but he's a smart guy, has likely read everything written about him, and knows he needs to embrace this chance. If he chokes at Indy, he's likely done. Hoping he's self aware, and comes in with a fresh perspective and attitude. Regardless, I'm not sure fixing him, is really a monumental task the more I read, and the more I think about things. If his mechanics fell apart in one year, he should be able to fix them in an offseason. Sounds like he just got sloppy, and that was compounded by a lot of external things. Or one could say a lot of external things created a negative situation, and he became sloppy (perhaps stopped caring).   Whatever it is/was, I'm just not near as worried as I once was. Like I said, I think he'll return to at minimum 2019 form, and not sure Reich will have a lot to do with it. I think the freshness (new team, new city) will create a new attitude. And the OL and overall quality of the team in Indy will resonate.   I think I'm back to being more concerned about Reich lol... I don't buy all the QB whisperer stuff. Sure he's had musical chairs to deal with, but overall I credit his conservative scheme more than anything. And that's great when you're working with chaos or musical chairs. Not sure it'll be good enough to go deep once the chaos and musical chairs stop.
    • With some of the stuff that was going on with the Eagles it's not unreasonable of me to think it didn't have an effect on the whole QB/coaches/GM relationships with each other. And none of it being good for the team. Regardless I am not going to point a finger at anybody. I don't care. All I care about is from now forward.  IMO we are a better team right now that we were a few days ago.   
    • I think Reich will turn him around and beleives in him. If Reich had a real issue with his character, I doubt the trade would habe happened.
