As some have feared, and could endanger the season.
One OL injury & weak link subs in = Offense is disrupted big time.
Time to trade somebody (Troy Hill?) for vet OL depth?
IMO if you're planning a playoff run, you need TWO reliable OL depth guys.
Currently looks like zero. . .

I have to respectfully disagree. We're catching them in the middle of a process...this is HOW these guys are being developed. These are mostly rookies starting out (early in the game) against defensive 1s. They are being coached up through trial by fire. You just can't expect a young inexperienced, learning on the job OL to impress you. The fact that one rookie stands out (Edwards) is already more than we have a right to expect. In fact it speaks really well of this draft (a 5th round solid looking LOT prospect? Wake me I'm dreaming.)

And during the season, whoever sticks will be subbing in on a more veteran and cohesive line, not lining up with 4 other rookies. And whoever it is, will be better for the experience they're getting now.

I say lining up with 4 other rookies. That's not quite it...Neary and Demby are more than that, but they're still inexperienced. Plus they're overtaxing Demby by asking him to do too much (remember the summer of 2017 when Kromer had Hav at guard and Brown at tackle. For a while anyway. He likes to experiment in the pre-season.)
