OL vs. DL draftwise......

Now that the combine has taken place, and there doesn't appear to be free agency on the horizon anytime before the draft takes place. I'm looking to get a handle on where you guys would like to see us go in the draft "generally". 

The consensus seems to be that no elite CB or LB will be available at number 13. If Prince falls that seems to be the no-brainer pick. Not a chance that Miller falls to us. Smith's off-the-field concerns seem to have dropped him out of contention. And Ayers' poor performance at the combine left most un-impressed to say the least. 

We all know that CB and OLB are the biggest holes to fill, but the fact remains that the type of guy needed at those positions, seemingly, could just as easily be found in rounds 2-6 as opposed to taking a big reach at 13. 

With that being said....Given all of the talent that is likely to be available to us at OL and DL at our spot, where would you guys rather see us go? Continue to bolster our D-line or draft one of the top OL prospects, plug them in where/when we can and groom them to take over for Backus/Raiola in the future. Or would you prefer we take a "reach" at 13 with the best LB/CB on the board and address the trenches in later rounds?

My preference would be to take Solder/Tyron and solidify our line for what will hopefully be many years of productivity. I feel like we are more solid at DL than OL right now, in terms of long term stability. The only guy I feel might be a solid pick at a position of need is Harris at CB. You could throw in Julio/Ingram as options as well, but I believe we already have enough talent on the offensive side to move the ball. 

Here's a poll to sum up the options
