    If we DUMP Jake Long...

    Should we spend another first round pick on a left tackle?

    Luke Joeckel would be the ideal selection as he's a Texas A&M product, but he'll likely be off the board by the time we pick in the middle of the draft...again.

    How about Taylor Lewan? He would be a suitable replacement. Plus, he's a Michigan man.

    Stephen Ross would surely love that.

    Is this a real possibility?

    If we spend another st rounder on the line, Im not sure any team in history will have invested as much in OL in the span of 5 years.

    3 first round picks
    1 second round pick
    1 3rd round pick
    2 or 3 later round picks
    2 big money FA signings
    2 or 3 smaller FA signings

    Mind boggling.

    If we spend ANOTHER 1st round pick on an OL or interior DL, Goodell should force the franchise to move to Iowa and play its home games in a ****ing corn field.

    The most depressing part about it is, we utterly failed. Our investments with proper staff would have us an elite top 5 O-Line right now.

    I don't think we will be picking in the middle of the first round with the schedule we have ahead of us. Also, I think alot will depend on how Martin plays in Jakes spot as to FA or the draft addressing the tackle position.

    HELL NO.

    I think the plan all along was to have Jon Martin at LT if Long wasn't re-signed. Its much easier to replace an RT than LT. This team needs to draft skills position players with the 1st 3 picks, no way around it. If they don't pick a WR, DB and pass rusher with the first 3 picks, the fanbase will riot, and rightfully so.

    Contrary to what many believe on this board, finding a good RT ain't easy.

    Even if it isn't, it is less of a liability than having a crappy LT when you have a righty at QB.

    2 things - first, we don't have a crappy LT, we have an overpaid LT. Second, you are assuming Martin will play well when he moves to LT, after he has already not played well at RT (which is an easier position to fill according to your statement)
