We already have Gurode and Johnson at center. They haven't proven that they are the best options at center, yet. But they ARE interchangeable options at center. Who is the real option behind Ferguson? "Thomas Johnson"?
So, if we were to use hindsight, at the 182nd slot was to chose Eslinger at center instead of selecting a viable backup and possible successor to Ferguson in Stanley.
Me? I preferred the Stanley pick over Eslinger at 182.
Even after the Fabini acquisition, we still need better options at right tackle. Is McQuistan a good option? We'll see, but at the 211st slot it was a better decision to go OT than DT. Combine that with the fact that 15
teams passed over Wright after we selected McQuistan AND 12
additional teams passed over him at least TWICE.
Well, I'm okay with the fact that we didn't select Wright. Good luck to him, though.
