If you're talking about "giving him a shot" I think it absolutely matters where he was drafted since there's a decent correlation between draft position and likelihood of success as a starter, and we have precious little game film of him in action at this level. I would argue your plan has a low probability of success. Again, reckless Britcard. I never had you pegged as the riverboat gambler type. (j/k)
Bringing in a mid-tier FA IOL and then slotting Hayes as a depth player? Okay. That makes more sense to me. He'll get meaningful snaps in the next couple of years and if shows well in the regular season, great, he can be the heir apparent at G.
But what would be our back up plan if we start him in 2023 and he gets destroyed in the first few regular season games of the upcoming season (a distinct possibility)? Blame MO?
Can we please, for once, invest enough draft capital and FA dollars into the Oline so that the unit helps us wins games, vs. trying to win games in spite of it?
