I hope I can write this in a way people understand...With all this talk about us taking Oline at 7 in the draft, I've been wondering what that means for our current line. We seem to have a surplus of ok and up and coming guys who aren't there yet which makes me think we could see our entire line swapped about next season, but I really can't guess who will be where.
There doesn't seem like any other way for it to happen. We obviously have something in Potter and Massie. They played well as rookies under bad coaching. The thing is we also have Levi. If we bump Potter for Levi at LT, where does Potter go? Right tackle? That would be taking a spot from Massie, not going to happen. Guard, where he doesn't fit as well? Get rid of Synder, very possible, or Colledge, probably our best lineman (in my opinion). If that doesn't happen, that would leave him as a backup, do we really want an up and coming talent as a backup? If we start Potter at LT, then where does Levi go? Maybe then Colledge or Snyder becomes expendable? I could see a line of Potter, Colledge, Sendlein, Levi, Massie, but what if we draft a lineman??
Let's say we draft Oline at 7, be it Joeckel, Fisher, or Warmack, there's no way they will sit. What happens to our line then? Do we take growing pains and go young? Do we wait for the new guys to get some experience and go veteran? A mix of both? I'm starting to think Levi might be on his way out the door to make room for new talent. I really don't know what to think so I would love to hear some opinions.
