[QUOTE=JohnnyHector;2387257]We all know that the Jets offensive line was bad last year, but people act as if we drafted McFadden, that it would only matter what his performance would be behind a line of comparable ineptitude.
There is still a FA period coming up as well as the draft in which to improve the line. D'Brick might actually put on some weight this offseason and he and Mangold will have another offseason of experience. And then there's the offseason after that to improve the line. And the year after that.
If we draft McFadden, it's not about next season; it's about the [B]next 7-10 years[/B].[/QUOTE]
RB last 5 or 6 years. Then they fall apart.
Their prime is the first 2 or 3 seasons they play.
If we didn't fix our OL immediately, we'd be wasting some of McFadden's best years.
