Offensive line

Recommended Posts

We have definitely invested in the line the last 3 years. 

Weve signed numerous guys like: Fulton, Kelemete, Henderson, Khalil 

weve drafted a lot of guys recently: Martin, Davenport, Rankins, Howard, Scharping 

 

so who who will be the starting 5, and how much time do we give these young guys to develop?

what are your predictions on week 1 starters?

im going to say that week 1 we start

Davenport

Rankin

Martin

Fulton

Sharping 

Mancz/Kelemete/Howard will be our rotation guys. 

Thoughts on our future here?

i feel like out of all the positions, i can predict the least about the OL lol. I just feel too burned by guys that I thought would produce for awhile now

What if Howard ends up at guard? Would that even be a bad thing? Drafting a guard at 23rd overall is decent value if the player turns out to be solid. 

I have also reread some of Rankin's scouting reports from last years draft season and a lot of people said he might move to C in the NFL. Thats an interesting option. 

I will be shocked if Davenport isn't starting week 1. Maybe he still have some left tackle in him. Maybe our line is going to come together like thi:

Davenport/Howard/Martin/Rankin/Scharping 

I read somewhere that BOB said we were going to have open competition and put the 5 best linemen out there and seemingly not have pre conceived notions about positions.

If Howard starts or ends up at guard it's a wasted pick and people will say we were dumb for not trading up to get Dillard.  Texans better hope Howard is legit at OT.

 

I think the week 1 lineup will be

Davenport/Kelemete/Martin/Fulton/Henderson but by seasons end it will be

Howard/Rankin/Martin/Fulton/Scharping

 

At least I hope.

I think Kalil will be cut before the season.  Our backups will be Mancz and the rookies. Dont have enough room to carry him IMO.

We won’t carry both Khalil and Henderson
