Interesting - OL - current roster - only 1 FA

One interesting thing with the roster, is there really are a ton of OL under contract. Outside of the elusive Right Tackle, It is one of the deeper position groups in numbers signed on the roster.

I hope that between Nick Gates and Evan Brown - one of those guys emerge as a valuable player down the road. Especially Gates. He got the early IR hook and started at Nebraska I believe close to every game he was there.

Player development is key with these guys, otherwise it's just a numbers game.

Eli will still get ghost sacked

With all of Eli's experience, if the line pass blocks well, I wouldn't be surprised if Eli gets back to normal.
