Not a sexy pick but coming into the off season we all knew our O-Line needed a makeover.

Hate this pick

Holmes was god awful last year plays like a total pansy and is weak to boot see his rep numbers.

Would have gone Poyer or Patton for mine

Being a USC fan, I like the pick, obviously would of looked somewhere else(WR) with the pick, but not going to hold that against Khaled!

I wouldn't rule out Khaled taking the starting job over for Satele! Even if he doesn't its good to have the depth behind him!

To me, WR was a top end pick. Once we get into the 3rd day, can we really expect to draft a WR who will bring us any more than Lavon Brazill? To me WR was a need because we could draft the developmental replacement of Reggie Wayne. At the end of Friday, I had moved WR well down our needs list.

As for Khaled, this doesn't surprise me at all. It was reported that we were interested here. Is he not every bit the player that Barrett Jones is? Everyone loved Jones because of the teams performance, but break him down individually and its not that impressive. Khaled should make the team as a back up to Satele (who has his own injury concerns). He's automatically better than AQ Shipley and is our C of the future.
