Or they draft a guy from a Pickett school in the 4th round and expect to slide him right in to LT. Etc. It is quite something to behold.
Point taken although it must be remembered that Young and Boselli were products of the expansion drafts and were done to provide cap relief for the Jets and Jaguars so that we might have other players like Aaron Glenn and Gary Walker. McKinney, Pitts and Weary were from Texas A&M, San Diego St. and Tennessee respectively.

The new OL was crafted from other team's free agent second-stringers and small-school projects. In that sense, we've added guys from Alabama St. and Northern Illinois to the group - hardly inspiring. To be fair, Rankin last year was from Mississippi St. and Su'a-Fila was from UCLA.

Not sure we haven't beaten this subject like J.J. Watt against a seventh-round rookie.
