Cousins took the most QB hits in his career this year. Even if the sack #'s are down a bit, this OL is not good. I haven't been the biggest Cousins fan, but I thought he did a really good job of getting the ball out, not holding on to it too long and avoiding sacks more so than he has in the past. Even with that, he took a beating. An upgraded OL improves the QB play. In the way the NFL is structured, QB/offensive play trumps defense every time. You can overcompensate on offense to cover up your bad defense (look at this years team and results). If the top center is available (JMS in this instance), I'd take him. Especially since JMS was an academic All American (in addition to his playing accolades), we shouldn't fall into the same trap as last year's top pick that apparently couldn't learn the bleepin' playbook.Bradbury is a free agent. Even if he were "fine" it's not worth the $$ it would take to re-sign him. Getting the #1 center at pick 23 when it's a position of need is better than getting the 5th or 6th best DE or CB. We've done that plenty and it ends up Jeff Gladney and Mike Hughes more often than not.
