It makes you think Zona that its smarter to keep building the oline rather then worrying about say for instance middle linebacker.
If we drafted a starting center or another guard like Warford or Fluker we could have a dominant line at some point. A line that just pushes people around and protects Manning. We do that and Manning can play until he's 40 maybe. Also though our secondary is close to being really good IMO. Another CB like Trufant could make us very tough to pass on and let us match up great with TE. We could let safetys and linebackers double TE and let 2 CB play man to man outside.
Just seems IMO that oline is the area this draft presents a bunch of good physical players.
