RT, move Bulaga to LT
UDFA's were Peters and Donald Penn. Both pretty good.
Those other high numbers, one is Newhouse, one is Gaither, one is Webb. One is uhh Bushrod. Missing one more, forget now.
Basically 2/3 to 3/4 of the starting LT's in the NFL are second rounders or above or VERY close to being.
I dont really care as long as it is a RB, DL, LB or C/LT
if we didnt take him in the first round and he is still there, tyler eifert

Another thing that's kind of back to my original point. I'm not saying its impossible to find a good starter in the mid 20s, but the in my mind, the odds really aren't all that great. Generally speaking, you need to be a special type of athlete to play LT. And usually anyone who fits that stereotypical mold and has even decent game tape gets vaulted up the draft board. I mean the same thing happens with QBs and other very important positions. Usually when you're drafting at 26 or whatever it is, the guys still available either have too short of arms, questionable quickness, or aren't super strong yet. Those guys usually take a little time to develop. If we're going to try to develop a guy, why not keep trying to develop Sherrod and Newhouse instead of another project?
As far as Ted surprising us, I really don't see it in the sense that he will take an unexpected position. He may take a guy we don't expect that he has rated higher than anyone would guess, but I think last years draft showed us that he is willing to draft with regard to need when he thinks we have a championship caliber roster. His first couple years I really think his goal was to acquire as much talent as possible, pretty much regardless of position. I think now he realizes he needs to be in roster turnover mode, which basically means he needs to draft to fill positions that either underperformed or are vacant due to free agency. If he surprises us, my guess would be that he moves up for someone he really likes.
