Jahri Evans was fine last season, but he'll be 33 when the season starts. Stick with your rumored target of Jeff Allen from the Kansas City Chiefs and just stick with that. But if Allen doesn't work, Tim Lelito is a solid run-blocking left guard who can also play the right guard and center positions. He wouldn't be a bad Plan B if Allen doesn't work out.

Kevin Williams is probably the only defender worth getting, but the interior defensive line is probably our strongest unit on defense, so why?
