In the NFC is was 1 1st rounder, 1 4th and 1 2nd.
So all these other 1st round OGs didn't make it.
If I am drafting an OG in round 1 he better be a regular in Pro Bowls.
sadly Pro Bowls are a bad way to judge players anymore.
At the combine on Sunday they showed all the guards and centers taken in the first round since I think either 2005 or 2006. Only one was not a starter.
And most of them are very recognizable for being very good players.
So frankly I would worry more about BUSTs then Pro Bowls.
If you can pick up a 6-10 year quality starter in the First round then do it even at the positions all too many think are not important.
But I do agree that kickers and punters and the like should never be drafted higher then like the 3rd round.
