Mac has ONLY signed or drafted Olineman that were bottom of the barrel, hoping one appears out of a magic hat and turns all pro ?‍♂️

Hey man, he could hit on one of them in the next 100 years or so and then wouldn't you look silly?!

He's a project.  He has good size, length, quickness and strength.  The downside is that he is raw and comes from a small program, Kutztown State, hear  me,  Bruce Harper? He was drafted as a tackle that is better suited for guard.  He is a good run blocker, needs to develop his pass blocking technique, but is aggressive and finishes blocks, something that was sorely lacking.  If our Offensive Line Coach is as good as advertised he should develop.  Can he be as bad as the "depth" we had on the line last year, I doubt it.

Or maybe he can play the 1000x more safe bet And draft them round 1 or 2, and play the powerball odds with safeties and non rushing dlineman in 6, 7 rounds ?‍♂️?

It's a great strategy if it works, but you have to have a rare eye for talent that he has proven without a doubt he simply does not possess. He's just not any good at the one alleged qualification he had when hired.

Every crossroads he's had where a lineman was one of the choices, he went the other way. That's fine to discriminate here & there, but you can't opt for the not-OL choice every single time for 4 years. Literally his biggest draft move for an OLman is using a future 4th rounder to draft Brandon Shell in round 5 back in 2016. Also of note, Brandon Shell is meh. Fine for a 5th rounder, but not fine as the only roster-worthy OLman you've drafted for 4 years. 

Somehow this fool with the double-digit IQ thinks he's smarter than all successful teams' GMs -- the ones that committed resources to protect their QBs and open running lanes more than 3-4 games per season.

The crazy thing is he had plenty of time to do it at his own pace, including getting spotted some sure starters in his first season -- set up to draft or sign younger guys starting in 2015 to bring them up the pipeline, instead of waiting for older-player bills to come due with nothing in your emergency fund. So he puts himself in positions to surrender a (late) draft pick for an always-injured LT Denver wants to get rid of, and a RFA center a year later because, filling in for Mangold, there were 2 games against nobodies where he didn't look as tragic as his other games. OK as a fallback, but not as your go-to. He could have kept it in his pants with Hackenberg in round 2 (or any round) and taken the probowl center the Bears took.

He's spent the past two offseasons in full teardown/rebuild mode and he's still treated it like he already had 3/5 or 4/5 of a top notch OL, inking shiny new contracts for average to below average linemen while steering clear of any OL position in the draft -- even in later rounds ffs. And did this knowing full well that the team was going to go all-in on a QB in the draft or FA in 2018.

It's as though he just expected the OL Fairy to deliver 5 blocks of granite because he put Spencer Long under his pillow.

How is it at all possible for a GM to be less forward-thinking for a plan that was already in effect?

6'3 308?

 

I'm 6'2 295 and look NOTHING like that. LOL. Gotta up my game. 

That's because he'd be 6'4 or 6'5 if he didn't have a (proportionally) little head and no-neck atop that huge frame.

Someone used the wrong Lego pieces when building him above the shoulders. The rest of him looks like a monster player in this picture, so who knows.

Nothing wrong with bringing in long shots to compete, so long as the long shots aren't the actual plan again.
