If we trade down and pick up a bit later 2nd or earlier 3rd....
and a center. Either order.
Yep. Benton, Kobie Turner & Byron Young are the best 3 interior Dlineman that I like who can add some decent pass rush.Keeanu Benton is another player to consider. This DL class is weak so you have to consider taking him in round two. Big guy with a good motor. Good run stopper with pass rush upside.
Problem is that outside of Porter Jr (who has a very good chance of going first tomorrow), I don’t see a lot of premium talent left at the premium positions, especially if you don’t consider TE and DT as premium positions.This is a good C class. It's not a premium position. Can trade back up to get a good one. Draft the best premium position player.
I'm all on-board with fixing the oline. But there are a couple of CBs and DE/OLB that would be good picks. Porter Jr, Keon White, Branch, etc.Problem is that outside of Porter Jr (who has a very good chance of going first tomorrow), I don’t see a lot of premium talent left at the premium positions, especially if you don’t consider TE and DT as premium positions.
Getting a plug and play center who could anchor us for the next decade excites me a lot more than second tier pass rushers (e.g. White, Ojulari), corners (Stevenson, Brents, Turner, Ringo) or receivers (Hyatt, Tillman, Mingo).
I agree, but I think it would be a major mistake to pass on the best OG in O’Cyrus Torrence at #33 if the Stealers or someone else doesn’t take him right before us.I'm all on-board with fixing the oline.

can he play center??I agree, but I think it would be a major mistake to pass on the best OG in O’Cyrus Torrence at #33 if the Stealers or someone else doesn’t take him right before us.
Protect your investment in your QB & give him the best chance to succeed. O’Cyrus is probably one of the cleanest players in this draft barring injury.
They’ve made it clear the O-line Murray never had will be built. Taking a center is a lock. However, I like Schmitz, but there are other quality options. Several evaluators preferred Tippman who is nearly as good now with perhaps a bigger upside. Wypler is a little raw, but the Cards like him and again he brings perhaps the biggest upside. This is the deepest center class in many years. Stromberg, Scruggs and Oluwatimi all project to be first year starters at some point. Schmitz likely will be best at directing blocking and picking up stunts & blitzes. Tippmann has unreal power and understands leverage. All this means is while the Cards will take a center, they may not do so with their next pick. It all depends who else is available, especially at 34.
They’re a quality centers in round 3 & beyond. Imo O’Cyrus is a big time guard & when’s the last time the Cards have had one of those? He’s plain a%# nasty.
If Porter goes to the Steelers - which I think is likely - I'm hoping someone trades up to leapfrog the Lions for Levis - the Titans or Raiders perhaps? and we're able to pick up an extra pick and still target one of the top centres.
Bingo! Since we pick second, one, at least, will be available. We have four Day Two picks and I'm hoping for a Center, a DT and two CB's. Not sure how the Draft will finish, but in all fairness Monti has gotten off to a good start in his first Draft.I want Schmitz or Porter Jr - would be ecstatic with either one
