    It seems that all the O-tackles in this draft (1st round grades) have some kind of issues, wether or not their arms are too short, injuries, workout warriors, not big enough.........and all kinds of questions. Soooooo.......my question is what would it take to move up to get Okung at #4........and would it be worth it? Maybe give up D Colledge, our 1st rounder......and.....what else to get up that far? I know its a long way from #23 to #4, but it just seems like a guy like Okung might be worth it. A guy that could be our starting left tackle for the next 10 years........and dominate....would go a long ways.

    I think the price would be really steep. Judging by the point system we may have to give up this year's 1st, next yr's 1st, a third rounder and Daryn Colledge to move up that far. However I really doubt we even need Okung imo. Okung is the type of LT that will have to start every single game from the day he's drafted. Judging by how we signed Clifton Green Bay really only needs a good but not superstar LT from this drafy. We can always develop that LT to become a superstar but we don't need one right out of the box.

    If he falls out of the top 10, then it's possible.

    Otherwise, no.

    almost every team uses the point system that Jimmy Johnson came up with. So you could figure it out but it would be so steep no one would do it. My guess would be about all of our other picks.

    This is a deep draft, no reason to get stuck on one player.
