Sick Offensive Line

[editor's note, by VanRam]Now's a good time to talk about the o-line for next year, especially as we get closer to the draft, which in one way or another is going to impact the line next season. I'm putting this diary from "Marmie is the best" on the front so we can talk about this. Moving either Barron or an o-line draft pick to the guard spot is an idea getting some traction.

The day got a little carried away yesterday (don't you have brackets to fill out too?), but I'm wrapping up the round two draft discussion and WILL have that around noon time.

While I would draft the Long out of Virginia with the #2 pick, many "experts" are still predicting that the Rams will take the other Long. If we do that, that means that either Barron or Long has to move to RG. Personally, I would move Barron, but that would be a decision that Scotty would have to make. With RG, Incognito would have to move to C. If he maintains his current level of blocking ability while playing C, he would become one of the top centers in the league (and probably the most athletic.) LG gets filled by free agent signing Jacob Bell (who by all accounts is an excellent guard. A healthy Orlando Pace fills in at LT and dominates the position like we all know he can.

That offensive line would be one the best in the NFL. Add in some cheap depth through late draft picks, wise signings, or retaining guys like Romberg, and we have potentially the best offensive line in the NFL next season. Give Bulger time and Action Jackson some holes to run through and let Bennet show that he deserves his money and Holt continue his dominance and have one of those expensive TEs step and we have the Greatest Turf 2.0 (better than the original???)

But, then of course our defense still has not recovered from the loss of the best defensive coordinator ever (I wish him luck in Seattle and maybe someday he'll get the highway that he deserves in St. Louis.)
