And if you don't want to do that, then so be it.
Like I said before, this will sort itself out one way or the other.
What in the world does Roy Williams have to do with this? Terrible analogy. Bigg is much closer but Nicks is much more highly regarded now than Bigg was when we took him. Grabbing Davis really was a part of the patchwork system of building OLs and was a chance. One reason I want Nicks is that he seems to be relatively safe for a FA opportunity.
At some point you have to figure out the draft thing? Well, yes, and part of that is taking BPAs even if they happen to be OL guys. I would say that a big part of figuring out this draft thing is coming to the understanding that good things cost money and that while OGs may not be as revered as most of other positions, they do tend to pay off in the first round.
Faith? I have faith, given the selection of Tyron last draft that they may have figured it out. Otherwise, I would say that I'm cautiously optimistic of this coaching staff. I certainly wouldn't say one has to have faith that coaching staffs will get it right since we have, to repeat a point, had consistently sub-par offensive lines under multiple coaching staffs for a decade and a half.
Here's what I will give you, and I've made this point elsewhere. We have a lot of holes and, regardless of how aggressively they pursue a better OL, we will most likely be able to fill some holes pretty well, thereby improving as a team, as long as JJ is willing to shell out some money.
