I agree gaurd is the biggest concern. Taking a good one in the draft makes sense for so many reasons. If Kuper remains banged up hopefully the rookie can play right away and do ok. Ik Kuper comes back strong hopefully the rookie is better then Beadles.
If both Kuper comes back, and beadles beats him out, the rookie can still be the top guard bkup until he improves enough to start. It's like 3 chances to make the roster lol. It's a smart move to take a guard 1st-3rd round. We could use one that bad.
