Can anyone show any evidence this regime would be interested in drafting a G at 7? I would really like to see it. All this Nelson talk adds up to ‘gee I’d love then to draft Nelson to me.’

Licht was part of a FO in Arizona that drafted a Guard top 10 in Arizona just before he took the GM job here.

That said I have a sinking feeling the folks at OBP have a higher opinion od the Bucs oline than most fans. I believe we'll address Oline/Guard in FA so we aren't as desperate in the draft.

I think Nelson is an elite Guard prospect and as safe as they come at that position. But I'd be a bit surprised if we didn't draft defense in round 1.

Its nice that your offering thoughts of others, now look at those two drafts and give out your player for 7.

If he was a "Once In A Decade" lineman, he'd be a left tackle. Doesn't mean he won't be good, of course.


He also wouldn't make it out of the top 3 or 4. Let stick around until 7.

I dont think they have really started pushing the offensive linemen yet. They'll move some up, move some down, find some new ones etc.

It's a possibility that happens...(doesn't make it past 3-4)...

I can easily see the Colts grabbing him to help protect their franchise aka Andrew Luck... especially considering that he's coming off injury and they've done pretty much nothing to protect him....

I also wouldn't put it past Cleveland to draft him at #4...

Taking Allen or Darnold #1 with Nelson to help protect him is a damn nice haul....

He's likely a once in a decade guard prospect.

Good example. But the way Cooper’s career has played out after being selected at 7, does not give me confidence Licht will do the same thing again at 7. I’d love it to happen as I want a high-ceiling guy if we stay put at 7, Nelson, Barkley, James, someone with the potential to be the best at their position in a few years.

I just read that Brandon Parker OT has never given up a sack in his career.

That's exactly what Nelson is....
