I have Changed my mind leading up to the draft from choosing Aaron Curry to trading down. But why trade down with the two best players available. So lets stay at #3 and reunite two of the most dominating O-lineman in Virginia history.
When united together on the left side in college the did not surrender a sack the entire season. So with these two massive men anchoring our line for the next 10 plus years think of how dominate our line and entire offense would be.
There have been talks on this site and I to have mentioned them in Herb Taylor and Barry Richardson but why chance it and both our just serviceable backups. I really don’t think people know how dominate this line could be with the addition of Monroe with the #3 pick.
Remember the days of the Willies when Priest and LJ struck fear in opposing teams and racked up yards and touchdowns. Remember last year when LJ couldn’t find the end zone on several occasions in the red zone ( like the NE game ) but do you remember when we had a dominate O-line especially the Raider game down by one we could kick the field goal and go into overtime but Vermeil chose to go for two and we won the game it wasn’t because we got lucky it was because Vermeil had trust in his dominate O-line!
So with the best O lineman on the board at #3 in Eugene Monroe we take him and reestablish the O-line of old and the entire offense of old and reunite the old college buddies in Monroe and Albert and have our new Willies for the next 10 plus years and address the LB position in the later rounds. Our O-line would look pretty sick with this O-line lined up on opening day like this:
Monroe, Waters, 4th round pick A.Q. Shipley, Goff, Albert!
So I ask you this question how good is Monroe he kept are starting left tackle in Albert at guard in college and Albert only surrendered like 7 sacks last year in the NFL so again how good is this guy ? Answer, pretty damn good!
