    I don't think that's super clear at all. I think anyone who thinks J. Williams is going to step in and play LT day 1 is gonna be missing Donavan Smith real bad. I'd put him at Guard day one though.

    I also dont see how you HAVE to replace a 2nd round LT who started 64 games with a Top 5 pick. Can find starting OL on Day 2.

    Signing D. Smith doesn't rule anything out, Dotson is due 4.8 mil this year is up and down, dealt with a lot of injuries. Could draft a player high and cut him to save 4.8, keep him as backup for either T spot or have Smith/Dotson start until rookie is ready.

    Pfish overall point is valid, I just dont think you can think in absolutes. After trading for JPP, signing Allen, Unrein and Curry, that could've ruled out DT and it didn't.

    Yea, that's true. I definitely didn't see Vea pick coming. I had never been so off on predicting a pick. He wasn't even on my radar last year. One trend that I seem to notice with Licht is that he tends to focus offseasons around entire units.

    I really don't know what they plan on doing with the O-line.i can't find it now, but I read an article where BA discussed rookie O-lineman. He talked about how the college game has changed and O-lineman don't come out NFL ready anymore. Be basically said you can not rely on starting rookie O-lineman right away. I think you can at Guard and maybe even at RT, but I wouldn't do it at LT
