Offensive line still a need?

General manager Jerry Angelo came downstairs into the Halas Hall auditorium Saturday after selecting Vanderbilt left tackle with the 14th pick in the first round.

He explained, in part, the club chose Williams because it identified the line as its greatest need when it evaluated things after 2007.

Apparently Williams is all they deemed necessary. They’re headed to the seventh round without a guard yet.

Offensive coordinator Ron Turner, when asked who was running No. 1 at left guard at this point, said he couldn’t say. Maybe we’ll get a more firm answer from someone else a little later on. Maybe they’ll draft another lineman with one of five seventh-round picks.
