Mostly a RT, right? Would've prefered an LT prospect.

Just spoke to a Wisconsin fan. He expects Wagner will only be able to play RT at the next level. But I guess there are no prospects left who might be able to play LT. (maybe only Fragel)

But from what I've read I like this pick. Just really hope we'll pick a WR in Round 6.

Rather of had Ryan Swope WR but it is nice to add a tackle to the DC.

Maybe we still intend on resigning McKinnie.

So he's a RT, Oher's a RT, Reid was drafted as a RT, Osemele has played RT.

I guess we're set at RT.

I'm starting to worry about that O-line. We all saw how good Flacco was when he was protected in the playoffs, and there's no one currently on the roster who can provide that level of security at LT.

They really need to re-sign McKinnie. I want no part of Osemele at LT.

I wonder if we're gonna re-sign McKinnie now.

I was hoping for Nixon who I think can play LT. Or a WR like Rodgers. Don't know what we're gonna do there either.

We were never going to get a 2013 starter at LT in this draft. Last one who would even have a chance was gone by 4.

Listening to Mayock extol the virtues of Quessenberry, I'm wondering why the Ravens went with Wagner instead.

Especially as Quessenberry can apparently play Center, which would be beneficial considering Gradkowski won't have any backup/competition, as things stand.

Worse case scenario, Oher plays at LT while Reid and Wagner compete for the RT spot. Calm down.

Worst case scenario would be KO at LT IMO.

I'd be fine with trying KO at tackle and Oher can be about average there as a fallback.

We really needed depth on the O-line and this pick fits that purpose.

Why not? Why wouldn't you want to try our most talented (besides guard-only Yanda) lineman at the most important position. It's easier to find another guard than a specimen like Osemele with the picks we are looking at.

I think our super bowl line/arrangement is getting a tad bit overrated. I've watched all the games at least 3-4 times, and overall we were A- level in pass protection and not that great against the run. Especially the games against the Pats and 49ers, they were begging us to run the ball and we made virtually no gaps against their fronts. Even the Broncos game, we got limited push despite wearing them down with a ton of snaps. The Colts front we dominated, but that's almost expected.

So, I'm not one of the fans demanding we re-create that setup.

I think Osemele could be a passable LT. But he could be a pro-bowl LG. I'd rather see him play where he can be most effective. Especially given that we'll have a Center who has only ever started one game. I'd much rather have Osemele next to him than Reid or Harewood.
