Do we really need a LT? Did Brandon Albert do that bad?
There is some logic to all of this madness. Brandon Albert didn’t have a very good 2009 season. Should we say it was the worst we have seen? Absolutely not, Brandon lost his right hand man Brian Waters for a few important games. Now I don’t think it would have mattered very much if let’s say Ndukwe was at the LG position because he doesn’t play at the level Water’s plays at. So when you lose a guy like Waters I think Albert and the whole offensive line suffers. At least the hole left side which so happens to be the most important side. It’s safe to say that Brandon did a fair job for being left to the dogs. I think if both Albert and Water’s stay health and Casey starts our Left side will be just fine.
So why would we waste a 5th overall pick for a LT? Ryan Lilja was just added to the roster and that is one hell of an upgrade. I would go out on a limb and say that all we need is a really good RT on our O-line. So why not add the best RT in the Draft Trent Williams. Trent thinks he’s good enough for both LT and RT however it ‘s been shown that he is way better at the RT position and it has been said several times that if we drafted him he would go to the right side. Just that one draft pick would solidify our O-line.
Eric Berry is a tremendous athlete and a beast at that position hands down the best Safety in this year’s draft but here is the catch he isn’t so much better that it’s a huge marginal difference to let’s say Nate Allen, Brandon Stuckey or Earl Thomas that we should consider him a the 5th overall pick of the draft. Safety is a need for us but not as important as the ability to stop the run and plug up holes. That’s why the two picks in the second round will be used for defense like Sean Lee ILB or Jerry Hughes ROLB, or Cody.
NO MORE BERRY. NO MORE OKUNG. NO MORE BULAGA
