But could Eslinger move over to guard
I think Scott Wells is our center in '06 whether we like it or not
...I like Mark Setterstrom for the same reason...you're the gopher guy here what's your thoughts on Setterstrom vs. Eslinger

I would like to see Mangold here. If not I think Youboty,Jennings,Moss or Stovall.

This is a good post and right on the money. I think Coston and Wells are already penciled in at LG and Center respectivelly. I would take Setterstrom in the third to play RG. The middle line would be young, but think about the athleticism and young legs these guys will have. They don't have to stand there and pass block forever because we are going to run more and throw shorter passes.
Marco and Wahle would maul DT's at the line of scrimmage. These guys are going to be technicians. The whole scheme is going to be different, so we all need to quit thinking about what we use to have and start taking a look at what Denver does with their o-line.
