    It would not bother me to have Carey & Incog as backups.
    Garner blows at tackle... Dude was getting used when he had to come in last year. I see why we've heard of his versatility but have never seen any good things from him.

    I think they should address it, just not at the 8/9 spot.

    I agree somewhat...

    What bothers me is we have players on our current roster that can fill the RT position, why bother drafting a rookie and going through rookie growing pains? What if we get a bust due to drafting outside the 1st round?

    I say we just develop who we have and/or resign Vernon Carey to play either RG/RT if we can get him cheap (home team discount)

    There is ZERO doubt in my mind we need a stud RT. Id like to grab one in round 2 or 3.

    If we could somehow trade down and add a 2nd round pick. Then grab Upshaw late in round 1 and grab a RT in round 2 with one of our picks...Ill **** in my pants from excitement.

    Our offensive line was rated 31st in the NFL when running behind our "amazing" right tackle
    we ran for a 2.62 yard average

    we were also rated 31st in the NFL when running behind our right end
    we ran for a 1.92 yard average

    We ran for 18% of our total runs to the above areas with little to no success

    We ran behind our left tackle and left end 19 % of the time with considerable differences
    behind our left tackle 12% of the time and ran for 4.63 yards average which was 7th in the NFL

    We ran behind our left end 7% of the time and ran for 4.56 yards average which was 11th in the NFL

    The disparity running to the right side of the line versus the left side is huge
    and I'm sure the pass defense numbers would be the same

    Not sure if the players we have on the team will be much better

    It boggles my mind how people on here spent so much time bashing the right side of OL and think the answer is either currently on the roster or problem solved with a late or mid round pick.

    Decastro is a pro bowler. Anyone think Ingram is a pro bowler?............. thats what i thought.

    We were also 7th in the league running between the guards for a 4.37 yd aver. That wasn't all Pouncey either. We basically ran between the guards 63% of the time. Sun Sentinal,I believe it was them, said Bush averaged and I may be wrong, about 10 yards percarry going thru Incognitos hole so I do not think the problem is from Pouncey to Long. Although Carey showed some signs of a heart beat towards the end of the season. So basically yes, our problem was the RG and RT.

    Although Murtha looked good in pre season, looking all the way back to even his college days ( Nebraska ) Lydon Murtha has never played a full season and landed on IR or not able to play at the end of almost every season he has played in College and now the pro's. Something to think about.

    I don't see the problem taking a lineman in the 1st like most of the people on this board??? Do you not like protecting the QB and running the ball??? Signing Nicks and drafting DeCastro would make our line Elite!!! It all starts up front on the line. How many times do you want to see jailbreaks on 3rd down??? Incognito could then be cut, Long can be extended, then Murtha and Jerry battle it out for the RT spot. John Beck could win behind that line!!!
