    Does this make too much sense?

    Jonathan Martin prefers to play LT and was considered to improve when playing there last year.

    Richie Incognito prefers to play RG.

    Eric Winston in Houston was considered one of the best Zone Blocking RT in NFL just season before last and is reportedly willing to sign a 1 year contract for $4m and has no real injury concerns.

    Jonathan Cooper is considered to be one of the most athletic LG to have entered NFL draft for years and is ideal for ZBS.

    I would prefer this over any trade for Brandon Albert, who is looking for a massive contract and has lingering injury concerns.

    I would be happy going into 2013, with a line consisting of MARTIN-COOPER-POUNCEY-INCOGNITO-WINSTON
    Identify the 4 positions of strength in the draft, then double up on each........ if possible


    Tailor Free Agency accordingly, so that your need is these 4 strengths


    2014 draft - RB - WR - OT - OG


    1-Carlos Hyde RB Ohio St.
    2-Marcus Martin OG/C USC
    3-Donte Moncrief WR Mississippi
    4-David Yankey OG Stanford
    5-Seantrel Henderson OT Miami
    6-Laurent Duvernay-Tardif OT McGill
    7-Jeff Janis WR Saginaw Valley St.

    I think that is the backup plan. Problem is, I'm not so sure the coaching staff thinks Martin can handle LT.

    Sounds good to me. I think Martin actually played better when he was switched to LT last year. He looked more comfortable there. I am not thrilled about Albert at all.

    They invested a high pick in his potential, he played LT for Andrew Luck at Stanford and it is his natural position. I don't believe they think that at all.

    I don't think the Albert thing will happen because he has a guaranteed 9 mil+ this year and is not going to accept what the Dolphins are offering.

    I would be ok with Cooper, but I really would rather see Eifert added to this offense and getting an O-lineman in round 2.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.

    This plan is appealing, well to me at least, but i just don't see Cooper getting to us. I have a feeling Tennessee grabs him at 10.

    I think we will have a choice of Cooper or Warmack. Either will be another Pouncey, a pro bowl player who will start for 10 years.
