    I'm as serious as a losing your passport in Venezuela. I think arnie_uk is too.

    Re-sign Big Whopper and draft your franchise LT at 32.
    Armstud develops his lower body strength (while bumping up 15-20 lbs) and develops his hands for 2013. Come 2014, he steps right in.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    That's how I'm beginning to see things too. Armstud is going to be someone's franchise LT. We need one and he's in range...and more importantly, IMO there's no greater doubt or reservation with him as compared to anyone else from picks 15 through 40.

    The most valuable skill-- footwork--is there.
    Is he thin, light below? Yup.
    Does he need improvement with his hands? Yup.
    Does he drop his head sometimes? Yup.

    Damn those small school coaches. Damn those small school strength programs! And damn Armstud for spending so much time in the classroom studying for his Industrial Technology degree!

    Seriously, 1 or 2 years in an NFL regimen, and he's on track for the 1st of many pro bowls.

    I agree here. This is always my thinking when looking at the draft. I want the players with the things you can't coach. I want instincts and speed. I'll let strength and technique slack for the other things.

    I'm on board the bandwagon lads

    I am interested too, I just didn't think he'd be a 1st round player. However, LT is the 2nd most valued position behind only QB IMO. Would be a great pick up
    Read up on joe staley. Small school, shined east west shrine game, ran a 4.7 40 went pick 28 I think, now seen as one of the top left tackles in the game

    Ah-ha. Interesting parallel.

    Re: All Things Draft:

    I am full blown on the Armstead pick. IMO I think this kid is a Raven. Not sure where he ranks and all, but a LT that can move like him and Smart, I would pick him at 32.
    I'm on the bandwagon!!

    Re: All Things Draft:

    I'm a little concerned about Armsteads size and arm length, that's the main thing that's holding me back from fully joining this new bandwagon.

    34 inches isn't favourable, but I think he makes up for it with his quick feet. His feet move like a hiccup and he shuffles quite well. They balance out IMO

    Re: All Things Draft:

    Question, last training camp we had a fellow named Connell. I think on PS now. Is he a tackle or just depth for guard? I know the coaches really liked him.

    Jack Cornell. Depth for both G and T. Played mostly G in college, but played some T during 2012 camp.
