Reid spent his one top 5 pick on Donovan McNabb. Outside of Tre Thomas at #11 overall, he spent ALL of his top 15 picks on defensive linemen (like 6 of them in total).
So if you want to make a case they'll take a DEFENSIVE LINEMAN, I'll hear it. There's at least some evidence (even though it's a small, small sample) that they would do it.
There's absolutely ZERO evidence they value offensive linemen that highly.
Making Jason Peters the highest paid LT in the league is some
evidence. Perhaps not the most compelling, but evidence nontheless.
Reid's shell concept is built around his LT, QB, pass rushers and #1 CB. He absolutely places a high value on the LT position.
The most demonstrative pick made, however, was the first one Reid ever made. He knows the value of wrapping up the QB position first and building around it.
