If they can keep the current line in tact with Clady, Beadles, Walton, Kuper and Franklin we can have a dominant line for many years to come - potentially even reaching the level of the Chiefs lines in the early 2000's with Roaf, Shields, Wiegman, Waters and Tait.
Yep that chefs line was great it could not only run block, for a few great RBs but IIRC Greene rarely was touched.

But they all got old at the same time. Something has to be done every other year or so to bring in younger talent. Maybe every third year a first rounder but no less Than a higher number 2 depending on the position OC and Guard needs to be those 2s OT more like the firsts.

Plus remember those OLs were about 10-15 pounds bigger than our current guys also. This is an area where size does indeed matter.
