    Team Needs & Roster Rankings

    http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/nf...oster-rankings

    Excerpt: "The 2012-2013 NFL season is officially in the books, and the Scouting Combine is less than a month away. Free agency opens on March 12. With coaching staffs settled, impending free agents identified, and salary cap situations beginning to clarify, here is a look at the four most glaring positional needs for every club entering the 2013 offseason.

    Teams are ranked in order of roster quality.

    6. New York Giants

    OL: Left and right tackles Will Beatty and Sean Locklear are free agents. 32-year-old David Diehl's effectiveness has evaporated and he's a surefire cap casualty on a $4.475 million base salary. Center David Baas is entering his age-32 season, right guard Chris Snee is coming off hip surgery, and left guard Kevin Boothe's contract is up. GM Jerry Reese has compiled intriguing young front-five depth in the draft, but there will likely be major changes on an aging Giants line.

    CB: Sagging pass rush contributed to the 2012 secondary deficiencies, but cornerback was still a huge weakness. Oft-burned supposed top corner Corey Webster is a release candidate on a $7 million salary. Rookie slot man Jayron Hosley was up and down in his first season. Likely to cut Webster, the G-Men need to find at least one starting cornerback via free agency or the draft.

    LB: Strong-side maven Mathias Kiwanuka is the Giants' only surefire linebacker starter for 2013. Weak-side incumbent Michael Boley is expected to be cut, and pedestrian middle man Chase Blackburn has run his course. In-house options include Mark Herzlich and Jacquian Williams.

    TE: Reese is high on 2012 fourth-round pick Adrien Robinson, but he was drafted as a height-weight-speed project and played three snaps as a rookie. The Giants can feel good at tight end if they keep free agent Martellus Bennett and use 2013 as another development year for Robinson. " Read more...

    Definitely think we need to worry about OL, and CB positions first, but we all know how Jerry Reese works. I can't see Reese passing on (TE) Ertz from Stanford if he's still available. Will be REAL interesting to see if Te'o is still there for grabs as well.

    Reese definitely has a flare for the unconventional

    Funny how they call Kiwi the only "surefire" starter in the LB corp. It's hard to remember any plays where he made an eye popping impact. I think they're going to bring him back down to the line where he belongs.

    looks like Jacquian Williams will take over the WLB Job, maybe re-sign Rivers, and the one linebacker I am actually excited to see get more snaps is Paysinger

    I didn't realise Baas was that old... why'd he get signed to such a long deal again?

    I'd probably prefer a healthy Rivers to Boley

    He's old, but sat the bench most of his career so he's not too beat up.

    I just don't think that NY is the place for Te'o.
    I wouldn't be surprised if he dropped to the 2nd round.

    I saw in some mock drafts they're predicting him to fall to the bottom of the first round for the Ravens. Can't wait until it all unfolds.
