    Guards top 5 doesnt seem logical but if anyones worth that pick, it's Nelson.

    Having Nelson and Leary as G's would give the QB room up front to step and throw. It would also improve the T spots with better G play having Leary and Nelson on both sides of the tackles.

        If Nelson is Great enough to take at #5 don't you think the Colts would take him at #3. They need O-line help more than anyone.
        I think McGovern and Leary played good enough to be the starters with Garcia as the backup. The new interior OL coach seems to be a good coach that can get them playing at a higher level.
        For those reason Broncos have only four options at #5. QB, RT, Pass Rusher, and Saquon Barkley. RT and QB could be be filled in FA.

          It wouldn’t be the flashiest of picks, but the San Francisco 49ers would be wise to grab Notre Dame offensive guard Quenton Nelson with their first selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.


          Sure, the sexier pick would be someone like Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. Or an elite EDGE like NC State’s Bradley Chubb.

          But Nelson is the smarter pick.

          -Invests in Garoppolo
          -Invests in run game
          -Counters Aaron Donald
          -Counters Seahawks DL
          -Raises bar on OL
          -Brings attitude


          49ers O-Line a Primary Weakness
          The Niners O-line might be moderately improved over the crop we saw in 2016, but not by much.


          In the bigger picture, though, grabbing a player like Nelson would help ensure the team’s biggest new asset, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, is adequately protected in coming seasons.

          Quenton Nelson Scouting Report
          Our friend Jon Dove over at With the First Pick broke down some of Nelson’s strengths and weaknesses:

          His dominance as a run blocker starts with his low pad level which he uses to help him roll his hips and deliver a jolt. That initial jolt is more effective because Nelson is committed to gaining inside hands. He then velcros to this target and generates a push.

          Nelson’s heavy hands make it difficult for the defender to disengage and help him control the action. This is also a nasty player who plays to the whistle and wants to deliver punishment. …

          His pass protection could use some work, but he has an elite anchor. He is able to absorb contact, hold his ground and keep pressure out of the quarterbacks face.

          The area where he needs some work is protecting the gaps. Nelson doesn’t have great lateral quickness which makes him susceptible to quicker pass rushers. Some of these issues are related to his less than ideal awareness.

          Some of these traits can be seen on tape, and we looked at a 2016 clip versus Virginia Tech for some relevant examples:

          Sure, this would mean passing up on a player like Barkley. But Barkley isn’t a top need. And what’s the point of a top-tier running back without an effective O-line in front of him.
          This is perfect for the 49ers Not the Denver Broncos. You get personnel to beat ur division 1st. Tell me who is a legit inside pass rusher in the AFC West.
          Nobody. they need to protect from the Outside In. Mack, Bosa, Ingram, & Huston that's the threat not DT.

            Are you saying none of these players has ever rushed the passer lined up between the Tackles?

              The Colts may very well take him at 3 but they also seem to be in love with Barkley and quite frankly these are the types of poor decisions they usually make

                  Bosa slides down inside a bit and all of these guys move around so they do get matched up with guards on occasion. Not to mention there’s also Mario Edwards JR and Chris Jones.

                      good enough only gets you so far and Leary didn't look all that great to me.

                          Here's a question. If you could get a player of Steve Hutchisons caliber in the draft at 5, do you do it?
                          Steve fricking Hutchison, because there is a consensus out there that this guy is that good. Or for the young ones Zach Martin. If you can get that guy and you have all ready addressed qb, then hell yes you do
                          First off I watch what I want to watch potna.....2nd I COULD CARELESS OF WHAT ANYONE SAYS ABOUT ANYONE....YOU KNOW WHY BC I ITS THEIR OPINION. Just like you all could careless about my opinion right?..... Tell me no carp about Steve and this dude ain't take one snap in the NFL.
                          WHATEVER.
                          Until we get a TRUE not name "Lock" qb we will miss the playoffs and be average at best! I'm E2DS and I approve this message! "AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW, NOW YA KNOW."

                            it's an 80/20 ratio most likely

                              Opinion! He is the best player available to you...I have seen 3 or 4 mocks with him not in the top 10....so I guess the analysis that made those mocks are wrong and don't know what their are talking about since they don't agree with yall right???

                                Look at the words he used. Specifically, "might".
