If that doesn't happen, I think Zeitler would have been selected with the first pick after a trade down. I believe this based on an interview Stephen had with the Talkin' Cowboys crew.
I hope that OC is the top priority on the list for the upcoming offseason. Just like Parcells believed in having a good center on the OL is paramount, I also believe the same thing.
I would take a blue-chip OC over any blue-chip OG every day of the week.
Center is a tough one. The only guy that might be considered blue chip this year is Barrett Jones.
I was for signing Koppen last year just for the veteran leadership. Look at Doug Free and Tyron Smith's best years......who was playing next to them? The team needs a vet presence on the line.
