    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.

    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.

    Why dont we just re-sign him? That way we don't have to spend a draft pick and he's still better than anyone we could draft to replace him. I'd rather overpay Long than have to waste a high round pick on an OT when we should be using that pick on skill positions. I dont even want to use a middle round pick on an OT. We need to be drafting offensive weapons.

    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.
