I am always amazed kiper has made a career out of "assessing" the draft.

IN summary, most say it will be Chubb, then it is Barkley, Smith, Fitzpatrick, Oklahoma and Texas OTs. I would love to have Smith, but would hate to pass on Chubb.

Fix the o-line in free agency. Draft BPA, which is either Chubb or Barkley.

The problem is that you, most likely, cannot fix the line in free agency alone.

While we will probably be able to find 2x OG of starter quality in free agency, the only OT for sure better than Good or Haeg is Solder from NE with no guarantee he makes it to free agency...or that he would come here.

Most likely, we need to use a draft pick on OT to fix the line and a top one at that. The free agent OTs are just not there.

Walk Worthy,

I agree that most quality starters will not make it to free agency. However, I disagree that our line is as bad as it looked this year. Improved schemes will make our line serviceable enough that we could just add one solid piece and be where we want it to be.

Agreed and that 1 solid piece could be Solder or Andrew Norwell or Trai Turner. I don't see Carolina as being able to afford both.

Id still like two guards in UFA, but I agree that scheme can help a ton.
