You almost need a couple Austins and Slauses.
..And screw Fluker. We need to start talking EIFERT!!
By the time Warmack and/or Fluker would be due for an extension (I think it is 5 yrs per new CBA, and you cannot touch a contract in the first 3 years) we probably will be looking to replace Brick and Mangold anyways if we had not done so already by then. They will be entering their 12th seasons at that point.
I like Eifert but he will not be there in the 2nd round. IMO he is a late first rounder. If they want they can either trade down (I think it might be hard to find a partner in this draft) or trade back into the 1st, but I think this is unlikely b.c they want as many picks as possible. We would be lucky to get him, the kid is going to be a good one.
