----------------------------------

I noticed that most of the good OTs in the league are drafted within the top 2-3 rounds. There are some exceptions to this, like Shane Olivea and Mark Tauscher. Then there are some later round guys drafted as OTs that turned into quality guards or centers in the NFL, like Matt Birk in the 6th. But if we are looking for trends, then the safest bet to get a very good starting tackle in the NFL is to go for one in the first or second round. You can get away with one in the third, and maybe more so in a class like this, but "Day 1" is the way to go.

I'm assuming your post is to argue against drafting a skill position like a QB so high this year, right? You're saying Jake Long or Ryan Clady should be the pick, huh? If so check this out:

David Diehl: 5th round pick

Rich Seubert: UDFA

Shaun Ohara: UDFA

Chris Snee: 2nd round

Kareem McKenzie: originally 3rd rounder Jets

Eli Manning: #1 overall pick

The secret to winning programs is drafting the BPA that fits your team's scheme and position of need. And most of the time, teams build around the QB.

You shouldn't assume. My post wasn't about that at all. Atlanta needs a LT. My post was showing the safest bet to get one, and had nothing to do with any other position. After posting this, I read Draftnut's post which talks about Pro-Bowl lineman usually being picked in the top 2 rounds.

If you want to know, though, I don't think any QB is worth the top 10 picks this year. I wouldn't be against drafting McFadden, however, a skill player. The best way to build the team, though, is to trade down and pick up a lineman in the first round IMO.

If you want to point to Eli Manning and him being a number one, I'll point to Tom Brady who has 3 rings in the last 7 seasons as a 6th Rounder. I can also point to David Carr, Tim Couch, Akili Smith, Byron Leftwich, JP Losman, Kyle Boller, and many other first round QBs that have been busts in comparison to ones that have rings.

If there is a franchise QB where you are drafting, then by all means get one, but don't reach for one in the first round.

And please don't assume again. You know what that does, right? ;)

The easier way to avoid making an as s out of u and me would be to clarify the point of the post up front :)

The brady argument is so lame. How bout Bradshaw who has 4 rings or Aikmen who has 3 rings--what round were they drafted? The point Brady is the lone example of continued long-term excellence from such a late round pick. Sure Warner won one SB and lost another as an UDFA guy, but he turned out to not be the Franchise guy in STL. And he, like brady, was a rarity.

And the point that I was making which you so dimmly seemed to have missed was that it is less about the round you draft players, but more about their fit into the teams scheme.
