    I'm 90% sure we'll have McKinnie back. I don't see him getting a large offer from anyone.

    We might already have that developmental LT in KO. He was great for a rookie. I would not be shocked if he isn't competing for that LT job next year.

    I'd rather him stay as a hard, he's been dominate. He struggled at right tackle at times, but you could see he was at home at guard.

    This is a serious question. I really don't think the Ravens are going to get a day 1 starter at LT in this draft and I'm also hesitant to say McKinnie is definitely in their future plans. Who plays LT next year if that's the case?
    Unfortunately, Oher. Even worse, is that Reid is prob at RT.

    This is why many of us want both McKinnie and a rook. Cuz the last thing we want to see is Oher at LT.

    It would be a real shame to move KO again like they did with Oher.

    KO looks to be an all pro guard. Let him stay there.

    Speaking of Giants...I think Beatty is a FA as well.

    They'll just have to sign Jake Long. No problem at all.

    Yeah but he sucked. Played guard this season and sucked there too.

    He was, and is part of the reason why people are saying LT isn't really an important position these days. He really isn't good. And to be honest, isn't that good anywhere on the line.

    Re: New draft/FA/offseason thread

    How has Kiko Alonso out of Oregon not been mentioned here at all? I just watched a recording of the Fiesta bowl, and he was everywhere, the guy can cover, and blitz the A gap like a mad man, I would love him as a 3rd rounder, the guy had an outstanding year. I don't get how he doesn't get much recognition tbh.

    I mentioned him as a possibility earlier on in the draft process but I believe he got hurt sometime before the Senior Bowl and wasn't able to practice or play. Hopefully he'll be 100% in time for the Combine. I definitely agree that he's a good player.

    There are lots of guys projected in the 2nd-4th rounds that I think we should target at ILB. Alonso, Greene, Brown, AJ Klein, Reddick, Hodges, etc. all of them are good players that would probably be better "value" picks than say Te'o in the 1st.

    Well I think Alonso would give us something that quite frankly, Teo couldn't. Alonso is a very speedy LB and can drop back into coverage, I'm not sure if Teo can do that as well, and if we could wait for the 3rd/4th round to pick Alonso up, then its better value.

    Alonso had alcoholism issues earlier in his college career, may explain why he's not talked about as much.

    Yeah i've slept on Alonso a bit but i'd be happy with him in the 3rd or 4th, good call Leach. All the guys you named would represent good value in rounds 2 to 4. Alonso is a guy i wanna see test because i think as long as he shows well in that regard he's shown his versatilty. He's a good blitzer, physical, flies to the football and has shown he can cover backs out of the back field and drop into zone.
