That said, if they're able to get one of the players you mentioned, I have no problem with it, if for nothing else, we need to replace Kozier, and get depth (Arkin and Kowalski look promising, but it's hard to tell at this point). I just think CB and DE are bigger needs, and the value should be there, at least for CB.
CB is a big need yes, but you don't know what CB will be there.
Nagy run blocking sucks, we need a future replacement for Koiser, Nagy or Arkin will turn into a starter but saying both will is a stretch. I would be better off get a Center to replace Costa. Kowalski looks as promising as Costa did or Proctor or any other back up OL that was a late draft pick or undrafted. People said the same thing about Protcor, Travis Bright, and Sam Young.
I think Koiser will be back next year, get OG early and a Center two, both that can play early. DeCasstro is just to good to pass up when you have a shaky not sure OL. Same with Konz.
Just say what if all the top CBs are gone Konz is there, then take him. Then round 2 or 3 get a OG. If Nagy or Arkin gets strength and becomes a starter then great, yuou have a future replacement for Koiser or you can go ahead and replace Koiser, if not you have a good OG ready to go.
I don't understand why people don't want to draft OG or a C early. All the great OL in the NFL today have at the latest 3rd round picks all along the OL.
More and more OGs and Cs are going 1st round. If I can get a day one 10 year starter Center or OG in the 1st then I will do it. If I can get a Pouncey, Mangold, Iupati, or a Mankins, then I am doing it.
As for DE, I say sign Calasis Campbell who will be a FA. This guy would be a beast of DE under Ryan.Only FA thats on another team that I would want.
Michael Griffin would be nice but Sensy and Elam are doing a good job. Maat Forte would also be nice but behind this OL, no RB is worth the money he would want.
