re: Who should we draft at 27?
We've just had so much success in the mid rounds on offensive lineman. It's hard to endorse taking another one with a 1st round pick. Especially since a guy like Peat has basically turned into a guard for us. That wasn't exactly great value at pick 13 or whatever he was.

Armstead, Jahri, Bushrod, Nicks. Kelemete (5th rd by another team). All were found mid draft.

3 of the 4 all pro guards were drafted 33 or higher. 1 was undrafted.

The offensive line is definitely a concern for me, but moreso depth. We could draft a guy or two in the middle rounds.

Although, I really expect them to try to address depth in FA.

Rammy= great value

Peat= bad value

50% isn't bad

That was not a great 1st round year, 2015. Our boy from Miami came right before that draft and I assume did not play much of a role since he was not there for the whole process.

That said Peat is pretty good when he is not hurt.

re: Who should we draft at 27?
Peat couldn’t stick at the position he was drafted to play. There’s a silver lining there but big picture it was poor value

Peat still became a starter on our OL and you can not say bad value. Maybe not as good value but its better than a bust pick at a value position.

I actually like him as well. Not sure what round he's supposed to go in though. I'd take him in the 4th round all day. Plays both OG & OC.

He could give you immediate depth at OG & also be a candidate to replace Unger in a couple years.

There are actually quite a few backup RT options in free agency that shouldn't be too expensive. I wouldn't be surprised if we went that route.

Assuming we don't retain Kelemete...3rd or 4th round should have plenty of good OG prospects in them. I'm assuming LeRibeus will be re-signed eventually as well, so at least we'll have someone to fall back on if the rookie isn't ready in time.
