Just IMO, but I would not be thrilled with O line in the first or second.

Our O line is built on speed and quickness, not power. That makes what we look for in O linemen unique and other teams that run more power schemes pass on those players allowing them to fall into our laps in later rounds.

D. Brown will resign here, regardless of what we think of our FO, they aren't dumb enough to, in 2 years, lose 60% of our o line and both tackles.

Draft a guard and someone for RT in rounds 3-5 ish and go from there. We need our power weapons early.

The Texans running game consist of 7 primary blockers. In just over a month the Texans have already lost over 60% of those starting primary blockers, Winston, Brisel, Dressen and Vickers. To make matters worse a large majority of the Texans running game was to the right side.

Casey will do fine as our starting FB, I have zero concerns there. People said the same thing when we lost Vonta Leach and that didn't seem to slow our running game too much.

The Winston loss will be felt in both the running and passing game, to think otherwise would be foolish. Butler can play, but the dropoff will be noticeable.

I think the difference between Brisiel and Caldwell will be minimal.

Glenn would be a great addition in the 1st. He would instantly upgrade our depth at Guard and Tackle, not to mention could outright win one of the jobs on the right side in camp.

Let's not act like Vickers made a difference. He looked like a FB, but didn't play like one. I can see why cleveland let him go. We have our foundation with Myers and Brown in tact. We'll build around them and Foster will reach 1k again.

According to profootballfocus as good as Dressen and Vickers were at run blocking at their respective positions, Daniels and Casey were equally as bad at theirs. Dressen was 3rd best blocking TE, Daniels was 54th out of 63 TE graded. Vickers was the 10th best run blocking FB and Casey was 27th out of 29 FB graded. Agree about Winston, he was mauler in the running game and played better than most give him credit in the passing game.
