I'd like to see Lucas Nix start. He was rated pretty high in last year's draft class but went undrafted and I was very greatful to see the Raiders grab him.

The O-line doesn't concern me. With Veldheer & Wis II we're solid at LT & C....leaving only RT to be addressed....and I expect/hope to see Watson take over that position and do well.

Filling in at Guard we've got Brisiel--who played good in Houston but had an 'off' year last season. I'm not writing him off yet. I think he can still help us a lot.

Bergstrom didn't 'WOW' anybody last year as a rookie but he's got potential...as does Nix.

That leaves Cooper Carlisle, Khalif Barnes and Alex Parson as backups (if they don't win the starting job). Though they aren't the greatest linemen in the NFL, they've all got experience and should work out fine if see injuries on the O-line.

The best part is that, except for Brisiel, Cooper & Barnes, our O-line is very young. A year or 2 for them to learn each other and mesh and we could have one of the best O-lines for years to come.

I think that if we get the right players to go with Wisniewski & Veldheer we should be good for years to come

Totally agree, Veldheer is kind of sleepily respected around the league and the Wiz has a lot of talent. We could really piece together one heck of a line.
