Only dB to play 500 snaps and not miss a tackle?  That’s an amazing stat. 
 

We grabbed two of Zimmer’s corners from Minny.  He’s going to have to restock a little bit.  
 

I’ll be very interested to see if he attempts to get Dre Kirkpatrick.

Glad they got Alexander, likely upgrade (and more reliable) than Dennard.  Yet the o-line and LB's are still hot garbage with little-to-no depth (Sua isn't going to be any sort of game-changer). 

Guess we'll wait and see what else transpires and happens in the draft, with Dalton etc...,   Burrow is going to struggle behind that o-line as-is, they need to do something at RT, LG, and find OT depth.

Not impressed with early developments.

Hah! When I said this I was somehow not even aware of the signings to that point. My virus isolation has left me clueless, and clearly I didn't read the thread. Don't mind me gang, I'm a goon.

They're given a strong effort so far.

A better dline will cover some of the deficiencies at LB. Agree that they haven’t done near enough work on the oline, and I’m not confident that the draft will fall in a way that will enable them to address it. All we can do is wait and see.

Maybe one day they will value the O-line a little bit, maybe just a little. 
 

Maybe they will value the LB position as well one day. 
 

Hopefully there is a trade or something for a OG or LB

Remember that time they drafted Spikes and Simmons in round one?

The impact of the draft on the offensive line is debatable anyway.  Even if you are using first round picks on line prospects.      A lot of these guys aren't playing well until year 3. 

Obviously there will be exceptions but it isn't a cure all for line.   The biggest boost for the line will be the young players they have.   Hopkins, Jordan, Price, Williams, and Johnson some combination of them are going to have elevate their performance big time.  

Would they realistically be able to get an impact RT at 33?

I'm still of the mindset that an impact LB is the largest need for this team.
Even if I think (which I do) that the o-line is a 1b in regards to needs, the coaches don't.
#33 won't be a lineman unless someone crazy falls to that point.

Even with the way LB's are being talked up, i'm not sure what's left at #33 will be the best value for them.
It wouldn't surprise me to see them add a top WR to pair with Burrow as he's coming up as well.
Well, God knows it will be fun to watch it unfold.

Well then 2nd and 3rd round will be LB then, if there is not a FA available

he’s not a bad add though, some real potential and immediate special teams help. Goodberry loved him in his draft class.
