Todd was not bad at LT when he had to plat it.... In this draft we will have to find atleast 2 starting O-Lineman......

I can see us tradeing down and getting 6'6 322lbs LT Jeff Otah with that first round pick..... and 6'5 341lbs RT/G Carl Nicks with that 48th pick

I don't expect him to be the starter even if he is healthy. we are drafting lineman. duh.

That's definitely not good news. I guess it makes sense that we're giving Blalock some looks at tackle...

yea, thats probably why.

where did this info come from? i know he hd surgery, but thought he was expected to be back for training camp...way before week one. he wasnt cleared for this mini camp, but attended and is supposedly close to being ready.

I'm hoping we can get any two of Cherilus, Baker, Nicks, and Collins with two of our 2nd round picks...

Heck, I'm at the point I'd prefer us to trade down slightly, get Brandon Albert, and put him in at one of the tackle slots.

I dont think this is all dat bad we just have to get LT in the second if we dont draft J. Long and either a RG or RT in the third....I think Tyson Clabo is more than capable at starting at RG and looked good at RT as well....we keep Blaylock and McClure at their spots and let the rookies and Renardo Foster hold down the OT spots till Todd gets back.

WHAT? If Todd's healthy, he's a starter dude.

Considering ACL recovery time is about 9 to 12 months and the player is usually 2/3's after that I am not surprised.  I hate it for Weiner but most players do not perform well the next year after their recovery and combined with age he could be cut at some point.
