Ummm...sure. But at what price?

He is ascending and looks to be about as sure fire thing out there to lock down LT for a good long while.

But what would BAL want from a team in order to trade him? I am not sure our 21st pick alone would do it.

Might want to see if one of our own players can fill LT first. If they can, we can draft a G or RT later. I like Bradon Smith's chances. Remember, he graded out as even more athletic than Nelson. But it isn't a simple position switch. Basically, you learn to do everything backwards than you currently know how.

Also, this is a pretty good tackle draft

Smith would stay at RT and Brown would be LT. That is the reason he wants a trade, because Baltimore moved him to the right side.

Or I may be misunderstanding your post. I do that occasionally.

Ha, no worries I do the same. I was referring to the previous post about using our own players. Yes, if we were to trade for an established LT then we wouldnt need any further movement.

Yes, this is potentially s good tackle draft. It's up to Ballard to grade out whether or not Brown is better than tackles in the draft.

No. This team has shown that it knows how to work with and develop offensive lineman. Draft Castanzo's replacement. Get him on a five year rookie deal. If we want to go a veteran route I would prefer a two-three year deal on someone like Williams. We can take the cap hit this year, the contract can be done so that the last year isn't a huge hit and it stabilizes our line now. Still prefer we draft and develop our own.
