You have a list of 13 players there. How many of them are generational talents like Eric Berry, Von Miller, or Calvin Johnson?
I would say Joeckel, who has the ability to be a 12-year Pro Bowler. And I think Moore has potential to be.

Offensive linemen don't make our team better. In fact, I can argue that it will make our team WORSE at the beginning. Joeckel and Fisher are rookie LTs, who are going to be compared to a LT who gave up one sack all season long. That's a tall order to ask out of a rookie.
All 100% fair points.

To risk sounding like an internet meme, generational talents are generational.

Half of the drafts in our lifetime don't have them.

I would say there's three -- Joeckel, Werner and Moore.

Fair point.
