Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>Uhhhhhhh Andrew Wylie held off Suh for an entire game. Why wouldn't you trade LDT?

His value couldn't possibly be higher right now, we need the cap space to retain Ford, Hill, and possibly make a free agency splash.

Teams might be wavering due to his injury, so just take a pick in 2020 conditional on his health. I bet you can get a 2nd for him.

Guys, I'm telling you, you're going to need the flexibility the LDT pick would give you to move up in the 1st round for a corner or an Allen Bailey replacement or something of that nature.

Andrew Wylie kept Mahomes clean, and has been a road grader in the run game.

I love LDT but this team needs capspace and they need it now. Why wouldn't you use the least important position on the offense to make some?

Exactly. I am hoping Veach drafts an OL with one of the picks in the first 2 rounds.

There is nothing to take for granted in regards to this OL. Veach should look to improve it as much as possible for the foreseeable future.

I'm not drafting a LG that early. Maybe a center with one of the 2nds, but even then, meh.

This regime has shown they can find and develop OL talent.

Why? I think our OL is in great shape.

Tackles: Schwartz and Fisher are both here for at least 2 more years. Cam Erving is an emergency swing tackle.

Guards: LDT is a top 10 G on a very friendly contract. Erving has looked solid aside from playing a generational DT. Wylie has been excellent as a backup and can be kept next year for cheap.

Center: Morse is probably gone, but Reiter has been a very good backup and can be kept for a cheap price next year. McKenzie is built like a C and the team is extremely high on him.

Could also keep Jeff Allen next year at a low price. He was very good here in his last season.

I don’t think we need to prioritize OL before rd 3.

I don't know if you need to invest one of our 1st or 2nd rounders on the Oline, but I do think you need to be looking in the middle rounds for some developmental guys.

We have Wylie cheap for a couple years, which is a luxury, but I've never heard of McKenzie being developed as a center. Which is why I think you look for an OT or Center starting in the 3rd or 4th.

I agree with everything you posted.

I wouldn’t mind a 3rd rd OL. Think our 1st and 2nd rd picks need to be on the field right away.

I'd be looking for an OT that could be our swing tackle and take Fishers job in a couple of years.
