Cure for the Common Person
Wow, could you post that in fewer words, maybe paraphrase it a little bit. On a serious not, I do agree with you. I think that it would send the wrong message to Donald Thomas, especially when they don't know exactly what kind of play he'll turn out to be (though early indications are, if healthy, our "Godsend" could develope into a hell of a guard). To draft a guard in the 1st or 2nd round would not be a good developement for Thomas, nor a fair one. Some might say football isn't fair, but I believe the FO will stick by their little tank. An Olineman may be selected with one of our first picks, but likely if they are able to trade down potentially out of the first if they feel that lineman would still be available with a lower pick. If Jason Brown is acquired in FA, almost all bets are off on taking an Olineman at 25, or even with pick 2A, and it certainly reduces the chances of taking TWO Olinemen that early in the draft if at all. Remember, in the instance of acquiring Brown, Satele would provide excellent depth at C and likely Guard as well.
