Brother, of course we did.  By trading back into the FIRST ROUND, we manipulated the fifth year options for what will be the core of our starting Oline.  While every other team that drafts their Oline

Just now said that we won first round with our picks.. That makes me feel good...They are talking about our drat now..

Where did we suck? The offensive line. Where did we get better? The offensive line. I am pleased.

They must not have seen how many Guards and how much money we already have tied up 

This will help to clear up that money in the long run, and it gets us younger, and more talented.  The guys that we paid in FA are not top prospects, these guys are.

Also, with the guys we picked up in FA, these young guys don't need to get thrown to the wolves immediately.  We can let them compete for positions, and allow them to develop if they're not the best option on day 1.  This is actually a pretty smart approach.

If we were going to draft lindstrom, we knew the whole time he would be available at 14 so why sign 2 guards to big money? I would have rather spent it on the D. And we are stuck with both guys for 2 years regardless of how much they ride the pine, and one of them will

We've seen what happens when one of your starters goes down.  Matt was running for his life last year.  Having the depth on the OL will truly be a blessing.

I understand the concern about the DL and the lack of depth there.  We still have 7 picks to address that.  There will probably be more trades as well.  There are other possibilities as well.

Ya i hope we get back into the 3rd round, 2nd would be impossible, and address the dline in some way

Chess, not checkers

At the expense of a very good 3rd round player.  Maxx Crosby, Miles Sanders, Isaiah Johnson, Nate Davis, Zach Allen...

And having 2 rookies on 5th year options at the same time will be hard on the CAP

Well, you sign one of them (or both) to an extention if you can, of course, but it gives you freedom.

Quinn and TD disagree with your philosophy.  Simple as that.
