    want to improve the offense...? find a legit LT imo. I loved how Beachum stepped up and played but also think we could benefit from a true LT and let Beachum push the other off. line positions. Maybe even settle the RT debacle. I like Foster (LG) - Pouncey or Velasco - DeCastro (RG) in the middle of the line.

    would be awesome but seems someone cant seem to draft worth a **** or develop one
    1) First ballot HOF, ROTY
    2) All Pro first year, first round talent that fell to us in second
    3) Starter for years to come, cant believe he fell
    4) Absolute steal of draft, 2nd round grade
    5) Back up at first then starter for 10 years
    6) Incredible depth and ST demon
    7) Amazing value, shoulda went 3 rounds earlier

    that's why I would love to get Munchak as an o-line coach if only for a year or two. The Bears seemed to right their offensive line woes with Jordan Mills (5th) and Kyle Long (20th pick). It would be nice if the B&G could duplicate that pattern.

    I think Beachum could be that guy. If a Franchise LT falls to us for some reason (and we take him), Beachum should be our right tackle. He is better than Gilbert and Adams..

    Speaking of those two, how much better would our draft outlook and OL be if those guys were actually solid?

    I haven't given up on Adams yet. He may be the best run blocker on the team after DD, and if he has all the tools to succeed in pass blocking, particularly at RT.

    i concur. but why would a quality coach want to come here to do the oline gig?
    they tend to be the scapegoat and get fired every year.
    its similar to HC the redskins, cowboys, raiders or browns

    I'm ok with WR or TE as long as it's not in the first round.

    Exactly how many 1st rd picks does the OL need to be decent?? Already invested two, which for a non-skill position is draining other areas of the team.

    If all the HC gigs get filled, what better way to prove your worth as a coach than to fix what has been a maligned unit for the past couple years. Then a yr or two down the line he'll get another shot at a HC position. Meanwhile we benefit and Sarrett gets some mentoring.
