RECENT history would dictate otherwise.
History would suggest that gimmicky, spread offenses don't work in the NFL.
RECENT history, again, would dictate otherwise.
The NFL is changing. Just because guards haven't historically been taken in the Top 10 doesn't mean that trend will continue. In fact, it won't.
There's the very real possibility that we could see two OG's taken in the Top 10 two months from now. Especially with all of the passrushers sliding like hotcakes.
But it HASN'T changed for guards yet. That is the point. Hey, it's fine that you are pushing this, you strongly believe in it but there are simply some positions that are not valued as highly as others. ILB's, OG's safeties have all been historically valued somewhat less then others.
Your case is stronger now than it was before only because some of these olbs are looking suspect.
