I dont worry about being able to resign O-Linemen.
Honestly, if the draft turned out that way with the two guards I certainly wouldn't be hating it. I feel its been awhile since a Jets draft produced anything to very happy about so I won't have a huge problem with safe picks. That being said, I don't realistically think the team would do that with so many positions needing to be filled. This team is hardly a great Oline away from a Superbowl run. I also think it would be pretty difficult to keep two exceptional guards long term. You're right, they signed Brick and Mangold so maybe they could. But LT and C are usually considered the two premium Oline positions and doesn't necessarily translate to being the same as two guards.
