We could still sign a competent guard/swing tackle and not waste a pick in one of the best defensive drafts I have seen. I'd wager that the Raiders are hoping Parker develops into a swing tackle. As I've said before, people are giving up on him way too early. He's a small school player who needed time to develop.
This is a way better post. Thankyou.
So Good is your LG and Parker your swing.
That still leaves no one to step up for injury - but Ok.
Differences are good & im happy to hear about these guys - i dont know them. /hattip

Yeah we overpaid for him, but he's significantly better than what we trotted out at LT last year, and he's a million times better than at least 2 of the consensus top 3 tackles in this draft. I havent watched enough of Jawaan Taylor to have an opinion, but Dillard and McGary are straight up trash. I'd rather roll the dice on Parker's development than waste likely our 2nd rounder to get one of those guys.
Youd have to cite examples of what youre considering the "Football world". Until then i cant say.
I would also point out my earlier post about Trent Brown. Ill link it later. I dont think im critical, just more pragamatic in saying that hes being paid for potential and 3 games than on anything else right now. I havent ruled out improvement.
Only that he has to improve to be worth the contract and Cable's OLs havent been traditionally great looking at his overall career
