It looks like we came out of this weekend without a true one tech


Recommended Posts

Either a better player at the time of pick or picked before us so Beane moved onto another player......and any chances of a UDFA  looks like it didnt happen

 

So the question no is.....did Beane consider it a top priority or not.

 

Star is back.....so there is a buffer here.....but past him there does not appear to be a true one tech on this team yet.

I would still like to see competition there. I don't think we should just assume a 31 year old big man off a year of not playing picks up where he left off and Harrison Phillips (though he had a good

Do you feel better now? 😂

I think this team is always looking to upgrade any position they feel they can. They apparently felt there wasn't a 1T worth taking over the specific player they chose with each pick. There will still be options to add a 1T this offseason if they choose.

We will see, but with the DEs they drafted - I am wondering if they are going to go smaller, quicker, and attack gaps by formation and worry less about a big 1T tackle.

 

If you fill the gaps and tackle RBs on your way to the QB and you do it right from the snap - it can clog inside lanes and force more outside runs where athletic LBs and Safeties can make tackles.

 

I think Beane was considering larger, quicker DEs with inside ability to be a larger priority.

The draft was limited in talent.  The bills went for good talent when it was their pick.   When we are complaining about not drafting a backup we know the roster is strong.  Anyway also no te and they did not address DB til the sixth when there was basically UDFA level guys left.  Would you really feel great if they used a sixth in a one tech?  They have seven roster spots and can sign a guy still.  They also went to the afc championship game without a one tech.  Not they have Star back.  This was not a huge need.

He did upgrade IDL quite significantly by adding Rousseau and Boogie. 1T will probably be between Star, Oliver, Butler and Phillips. Don’t forget that a few players may shake loose from the tree during preseason cuts. Ertz may still be an option and likely a solid corner.

Beane stays painfully true to his board. And he has plenty of defenders here. He could have drafted 4 punters in a row and people would be saying “the game is all about field position!”

Lotulelei and Phillips will be fine this year. That's a plug and play position that will be easy to fill next year if necessary. Not a need.

If it is so easy to fill, and if the claims of missing Star was such a big loss, then why did they do nothing to address this last season?

Yeah, why would anyond defend a GM of a team that has gone from 6-10 to 10-6 (playoffs) to 13-3 (one game from Super Bowl). It's hard to defend that.

 

Been there with the pets though, although one of my cats seems to love Brandon Beane (is staring at his press conference as if he were a bird).

I love Beane. I think he’s the best GM in the league. But he’s not perfect. We don’t have to love everything he does. I’m just saying he should be open to criticism. I didn’t agree with all the draft picks. But it’s like if you say that then it’s “how dare you!”

I believe once the draft madness has settled they will be hoping some veterans at 1T and CB shake loose. Hell, they may even sign Richard Sherman at CB they seem to like guys drivin down the street with a donut tire on lol.
