Two yrs ago at the start of the season we were not only being losing we were being embarrassed at historic levels. We ending up winning 5 games. Last yr we win 10 games We have one of the youngest teams in the league, which generally means cheap contracts. Tua if he is even a 10-20 pfft qb we make the playoffs and make a good push. If he is top ten we can make a push for the Superbowl. Even if Tua gets hurt Jacob can lead us to the playoffsI’m thinking we should find out if we have a QB before we start putting ourselves into cap hell.

Depth at LT...not a starter , but right tackle has to be the idea with burning a third rounder to move up 8 spots.TOTALLY disagree with the OP assessment of Eichenberg. There is ZERO chance Grier overpaid to trade up in the 2nd round to draft a OG. Sorry that isn't even CLOSE to logical when we have two starting OGs and no starting OTs, (Jackson is not a starting OT until he can keep 100% of players that cross his face from having a free shot on the QB). Eichenberg is going to get a shot at OT and I will be surprised if it isn't LT. If Eichenberg was drafted to be a OG we should put Grier and company on a bus out of town.
click smiles and its under finheaven members lol. it was the first thing i tracked down.Where's a palm-plant when I want to use one.
Solomon Kindley was horrible last year. If he isn't able to make huge strides this off season and camp, he may not be anybody's guard.If Eichenberg was drafted for OG, it was a waste of a pick. Kindley and Hunt are our OGs, and very young.
Eichenbergs arms are one inch shorter than the average RT, so be it. Russell Wilson is much shorter than the average QB and he does fine.
OL worse then I thought looking at those numbers. But there is hope. Jackson will be much better , Kindley played better at LG, Skura is better then karras, Hunt @ RG is where he should play, he’s not a OT. And eichenberg at RT will be very good even doe he projects to be a all pro guard by some.Robert Hunt ranked 52nd among tackles last year with a grade of 65.8. Pass blocking was a weakness, he was a little better run blocking.
People, Hunt has great potential as an NFL guard, but as Tua's blindside protector it could end up catastrophic.
Several pundits see Eichenberg as a potential future All Pro NFL guard. He might be a good RT but why not play him where he can dominate.
Jesse Davis 57th at the tackle position last year. He is a backup.
Austin Jackson ranked 75th last year and was the worst starting OT in the league.
Things aren't OK.
At guard Solomon Kindley ranked 75th with a grade of 51.3.
Matt Skura was the 34th ranked center. 671 snaps. Not sure he will be on any team come opening day.
Sorry, but the thinking that our OL is fine is just delusional.
I love Van Ginkel and Phillips as starters next year but the depth on the edge is scary. Ogbah is playing more inside than out, and I think he is more effective that way.
