    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.

    If it was me I'd draft another CB in the first. We were getting torched in the secondary. If Webby doesn't restructure he is also most likely gone. I don't feel comfortable with our corners being only Prince and Hosely. We need a new MLB and SLB, DT, maybe a DE to replace Osi, and RT...comes down to who is the best player available

    So many holes on this team, surprised we were able to win 9 games

    I'm in the Oline first camp. A short term deal for an established right tackle and a mid round draft Olineman would work for me

    I don't get the fascination with an early round RT myself considering any of them who would be good at the position are much better slated to play on the blind side. Outside of the top 3, the RTs in the 2-4 range either have questionable speed and agility for the edge or have some injury concerns. Here's hoping for some front 7 help on the D.

    We need two better than average tackles and we already have one. RT/LT comes down to who's better on which side. I'm also concerned about our OLine depth in general

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

    But do we need to invest an early round selection to get an above average OT? Lots of RTs in this league are mid to late round selections. It would be ashame if we took an OT in the 1st that isn't named Joeckel, Fisher, or Johnson.

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

    Not if we bring in a short term veteran. On defense, and I realize I am in the minority here, we have young players in Tracy and Ojomo that I think we can rely on especially with Tuck and Kiwanuka staying this season. Fortunately. Jerry Reese is not returning my calls
