We signed Tom Compton. #savior :D

I didn't hate what Isadora did in limited action. Hopefully they can land one of Price/Wynn. I'm not thrilled with Easton but he's a decent pass-blocker and isn't terrible. If we keep Remmers at RT then we can have a camp battle for just one RG position between Isadora, Compton and one or two rookies. That's workable as long as the winner isn't a below-average Clemmings-like liability.

You never know, maybe they'll send Sparano, B.Rob, and Forbath down to wherever Berger lives, share a 6 pack with him, and get him to come back up on the company jet to rejoin the team just in time for week one.

It could happen!

It worked with a third round pick last season, so I am very hopeful we can make it two years in a row.

After recent signings: RG, TE, DT, OLB. RG is a given and we need another pass catching TE. We really have no one behind Linval. Bradley is a small DT and Johnson struggles in run support. Wilson and Brothers provide some LB depth but we need another OLB to replace Lamur.

We also need depth at T, DE, and CB. That's 7 picks. With 8 picks right now, they could look at what appears to be a deep safety class, a QB to challenge Sloter or another lineman.

Dont forget the G they signed from Philly. He could also be in the mix.
