Not singling you out Dag, as I've been guilty of this as well: Olson is remembered as better than he actually was. His last year here was his only decent one at blocking, and the dude could be counted on for the catch, but his yards after catch were horrible. Dude went down no matter who the first person tackling was. If we make it far enough into the playoffs, and it looks like the line is set for a while, sure, let's get this guy, but I'd say right now LB and OL is still of higher concern.

The passion of a few, to rule the many, that's Washington D.C.. Where else was that said before, about whom?

This guy could garner a few looks. Alabama has been known to recruit and produce the best talent in college football over the past five years or so. C.J. Mosley could be someone we look to if he's available wherever we pick.

The Steelers wanted Dont'a Hightower, but David DeCastro was just too good to pass up at No. 24 this past April. Pittsburgh now has few needs, but one of them is still at inside linebacker. Maybe the team will still end up with an Alabama linebacker.

All it's going to take is a few bad games by the O-line to revert back to panic mode. We need talent on the o-line despite the band-aids and bailing wire. The TE position can be re-vamped with less effort than the WR position did which gives more resource allocation for MLB and other spots.
Arguing on the internet is like winning the special olympics, even if you win your still messed up.
