    Question

    Ok, so we know that our needs are OL, DL, LB, and CB, but which position do you guys think we address in FA and what do you think we address in the draft?

    Personally, I hope we address any of them in the draft except OL. I'd rather us bring in a veteran and hope to land another Locklear.

    I tend to agree with RF in that we have Kiwi, Tuck, JPP, Ojomo and Tracy available as DEs in 2013 and that would suffice enough for us to address more pressing needs in this year's draft (I'd be more worried about DT for instance).

    But it will also depend on where the chips fall in the first round.
    They need to improve the pass rush in some way I dont care where it comes from. they need to get more pressure on the QB. If they take a DT early this year we know they have absolutely no confidence in Marvin Austin

    I agree with this 100%.... I can't remember whether or not Ojomo was injured for a while but I really wish we would've seen them get more action so we could get a good idea of what we need to address in the draft.

    Right now both of these guys are question marks. Fans are divided on whether or not we should gamble and hope that at least one of them pan out next year or draft a DE.

    I think we should draft OL first round, MLB in 2nd or 3rd, OLB depth and a kicker in later rounds.

    In FA, primary re-signings should be Beatty, Cruz, and Rivers (only if we can get him for cheaper though). Pick up a CB in free agency (DRC would be one possibility, but only if the price is right). Cut Boley, Diehl, and TT.

    DE we should let Ojomo get in on the action on rotations and develop him into a starter, with Kiwi starting for the time being opposite JPP.

    I honestly dont think we'll spend fa money outside of our fa's. Beatty and Cruz are def our top priorities, but i wouldnt mind another OT, CB, or DL, even a safety as long as it isnt in the 1st 2 rounds

    I do agree with your thought on getting more Oline depth though, especially in the interior.

    I don't think all these holes can be fixed in one year.
