    plenty of qb's left in this draft to not need to take that approach.

    Takes pressure off of him with a proper guard playing next to him.

    Elated! BOB is going for a big, tough team that blows people off the line.

    I'm assuming Foster should have a better year than last based on this pick then. He should at least.

    Good pick.

    Our line needs good players plus we build depth as well as flexibility.

    Wanted a big NT, don't know much about this guy, but I'm hearing good things. If we were going O-Line I would've preferred Billy Turner from NDSU in 3rd round.

    I like it. Always a good idea to build the trenches if there aren't obvious QB's.

    True, but I was thinking how people were saying it was almost guaranteed a qb would be taken here.

    Hopefully no more small and quick OL that depend on cut blocking.

    Just big MEN who look to punish whoever is in their way. BOB is after attitude and I love that.

    Yeah. Looks like the ZBS is a thing of the past.

    Probably steps in and is a Day 1 starter for a long, long time.

    Can't argue with the approach; build the foundation.

    LOVE this pick. Our running game is going to be nasty again.

    The top guard prospect in the entire class.....saying "who" says more about you than it does about the pick.

    Anyone we pick there had better step in as a day one starter. We have so many holes to fill.

    Same goes for this next pick.

    From what I have read you just need a fatty to take up space at NT. We can get one of those on day 3.
