If they stay at 31: Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

If they trade up: Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma St.

Probably a dumb idea: Move Thuney to LT and take the best guard available? Maybe a move up for a guy like Alijah Vera-Tucker, who would seem to be closer to a sure thing than the mid-to-late 1st round tackles.

Yeah. That would be monumentally stupid.

On the surface, it makes more sense than giving up multiple picks for an unproven OT. Assuming Thuney is as effective at LT as advertised.

No, he wouldn't be a top pick in most classes and in fact, there's discussion now if he's even the top LT in THIS class because people have been more impressed by Slater despite his size.
Andy prefers 34 arms but that doesnít mean everyone does. Sewell is easily the best Tackle in this class and itís not really a discussion. This is like criticizing Patrick Mahomes for having 9.25 size hands.

But hey if a team wants to take Slater over him then so be it. Teams do that all the time. Raiders took Ferrell over the field and that was a disaster :-)

KC native Braden Smith has 32.25 arms and heís very good at tackle, so it doesnít appear to be a determining factor for most teams.

The Bengals would be stupid to not take Sewell. If Burrow wants to survive in this league you take a LT

Bateman or Eichenberg, and whoever it is, our first pick is in the second round.

It does not.

What concerns me is his foot speed. He needs to be quicker because he's going to have to make a lot of "vertical sets" with all the ridiculous slippery stuff Mahomes does to buy time.

Honestly, I'd prefer doing what we have to do to land Eichenberg. But that just doesn't feel like a Veach pick.

Eichenberg doesnít have the athleticism or the arm length for this offense.

He'll give you ten years of solid, fringe Pro Bowl protection on the blind side, though.

At the end of the 1st, I take that and run. Hell, I'd take that in the 20s.

Oh I'm not saying taking Slater over Sewell would be a good idea. Teams make stupid moves all the time based on things like this. It has definitely sparked a discussion whether that discussion actually has merit or not.

Yep. I'm not sure he'd even be on their radar given the emphasis on SPARQ lately.

Brian Kelly said himself that Eichenberg is a plug and play RT but lacks the athleticism to be a LT.

That's what they said about Amobi Okoye.
