I mentioned this in the previous thread, and I think it holds true, that the team who gives up sacks a lot more than it creates them, will look to bolster a shakey line through free agency rather than the draft.
We have very little draft capital, and I think we need to upgrade too many other areas to use a pick on an offensive lineman. Well, maybe one. But nothing higher than a 4th rounder.
Our tackles are set in ageless Joe Staley, and Mike McGlinchey. The rest is up for grabs. Westie Richberg (Richie Westberg?) is coming off a sub-par year that he attributed for being dinged up. As of now, Person and Tomlinson are our right and left guards with Magnusen and Garnett being the backups.
So, if there was work to be done there, it would be at guard. Our guards are OK, but they leave a bit to be desired pass protection-wise. We gave up 48 sacks. Not the horrendous number of 62 given up by Houston, but we were 9th worst in sack totals,and 4th in yards lost.
One guy we are apparently interested in draft-wise is Garrett Bradbury. He had played both guard and center well in college, and could very well slip into Tomlinson’s spot. He’d be a 3rd rounder if the yokels are right. He ran a 4.9 40 and possesses the later quickness desired by our outside zone blocking scheme.
As far as who will be available after the draft? Who knows? Your guess is as good as mine.
