The overall prognosis after ACL repair should be good in principle but Flo was only a very good LT for one year and his play had fallen off over the past two years prior to the injury. Additionally, we need to consider the fact that he is only under contract for two more years and we need to anticipate this being a possible hole. I don't share the faith in Pettiti. He looks shockingly bad whenever in pass protection. Maybe he'll improve with a new OL coach but I would rather not have to double-team every LDE in the league for the next few years. Perhaps, but there were rumours of some sort of rift between Brooks and the coaching staff and that may mean we are actually less likely to pick him. Anyhow, it makes no sense to pick a player in the first who may be available in the second round.
