IMO that would be a weak line starting in the middle to the right side. I also think there's a chance Light is traded on draft day, look for the Bears to make a move since they do not draft until the 3rd and their OL despretely needs help. In the Martz still O the QB needs time to throw down field, that line won't hold up reason I think Light might be a Bear this year.
I hope Mankins plays because he is a key, assuming something gets done or that he doesn't sit out here's my picks and how the line will look.
Draft in the 2nd Saffold, start ready T that can also play inside but will be a RT.
LT Voll LG Mankins C Koppen (not the whole season, Connolly finishes season as starting center) RG Bussey RT Staffold
Ohr Connolly Neal Katzur Lavoir all see action in packages, LaVoir playing a role in short yardage as the 6th OL.
We do need to add another OL type and I think in the 7th there are a couple of interesting players I would take and coach see if the turn out ok.
Thomas Austin OG/C - opened holes for C.J. Spiller to run through, he is not strong enough yet to play at the next level but it is a versatile OL who can play all three inside spots. in a pro style workout program he can get stronger and improve on that weakness.
Reid Neely OG Mississippi played in the SEC and part of an OL who saw great success in running the ball. IMO he's close to been a starter.
Levi Horn OT/OG - has played both LT and LG, at 6'7" 325 has the size to play OT in the NFL and yes also has good feet. Played at Montana, will need to develop into a starter or very good backup.
Jeff Linkenbach OT - played LT in college, he is a big man who played in a good program (Cincinnati). Has been projected as a UDFA but has been gaining some interest specially from the Chicago Bears.
I have been saying for a while (even if Light doesn't get traded) we need to find the RT of the future. The line although only gave up 18 sacks last year did not play like it only gave up 18 sacks. Those 18 are more due to TB and WW, but you saw Tom get hit time and time again. Need to protect the franchise.
