If you're building a team from nothing, which the team with the No. 1 pick is generally doing, you start with the lines. A great quarterback is nice to have, but we saw in Houston from 2002 to 2006 what happens when a potential franchise quarterback lines up behind a bad offensive line. It's a lot cheaper and easier to sign a journeyman to get knocked on his ass every third play. Build the line first.I will not be able to watch the draft live, as I'll be out at the New Orleans fairgrounds Sunday afternoon enjoying the sweet strains of Jazz Fest, but I am hauling along a computer so I can pontificate about our picks after the fact.
PS: fond as I am of Alex Ovechkin, I have to say: GO FLYERS!
