    OG & OT are the deepest positions outside of WR, it makes a lot of sense to Draft those 3 positions in the mid-late rounds....same with RB.

    I really really like Gabe Jackson. He is huge and moves well. Only knock I could see is awareness wasn't great at times.

    But he fits our offense and would significantly strengthen our line.

    I don't know if they prefer one player over the other vs the idea that they think they can get a player later in the draft (Turner) vs earlier (Jackson).

    I would be ok with either.

    keep building in the trenches...always a good idea to improve the OLine, but the team MUST start improving the pass rush...17 more days...

    Then they'll have to explain to me again why Larry Warford wasn't on their board.

    Who made that decision? Why wasn't he fired?

    They don't have to explain crapola to you.

    Get over yourself.

    Wouldn't shock me if Trai Turner went before Jackson. But either way I highly doubt either will be there when we pick in the 4th. Billy Turner, Trai Turner, or Gabe Jackson in the 3rd and I'll be very happy.

    I like both Turners better than Jackson.

    Agreed. Both are way more versatile. With more room to grow and improve

    Not big on Jackson myself. Just don't see him as a fit in this scheme.

    Trai Turner is a far better athlete, just as nasty and more than big enough to play guard in the NFL.

    Thing I like about Billy Turner is he will be able to kick out at RT (maybe even LT) in the NFL, he's that good an athlete. There is a lot to work with there and his versatility is a highly sought after trait.

    Are you saying that you have studied the game footage of all of the top OG prospects?

    Did you study their performances in the Senior Bowl or East-West games and practices?

    I'm not saying that you haven't, I'm just curious.

    His stock took a nose dive at the post season bowls. He was getting killed in some of those practices.

    I like Richardson too.

    Jackson would probably be my fav. Guard though

    I'm not sure he is saying they like Turner over Jackson. Just another guy they like.

    The dc star draft mag has Jackson in the 2nd round and Turner as a 3rd-4th. Both were invited to the Ranch. It's also been mentioned on the radio shows on the website that the team just now is starting to put together their draft board.
