It's probably where we have the most depth as we've seen this year. Easton has filled in quite well for Berger when he's been out.

We need a tackle(s) and a solid guard. I'm not worried about LG or Center.

Berger will be 35 when the 2017 season starts. If we don't start developing his replacement we will be in the same boat at the center position that we are with both tackle spots right now. I'm not sold on Easton, he didn't grade out too well in this last game against the colts. If there is a tackle there in the 2nd round worth taking, you obviously take them. If not, and there's a potentially dominant center there, I don't know why you wouldn't consider drafting a center and moving berger to RG where he has played well also.

I agree, you can look at it that way as well with moving Berger to RG. He didnt look too hot there vs the Colts but outside of Kai Forbath nobody looked good that game. I mean I am an Easton "fan" I guess you could say but who's to say he couldnt play right guard too I dont know. All in all, we need to keep every position on the OL a possibility come draft day.
