CB: CWeb, Prince, Hosely, Ross (we have CBs)
Safeties: Rolle, Brown, Hill, T2 (we have Safeties).
DE: Kiwi, JPP, Tuck, Tracy, Ojomo (we have DEs)
DT: Joseph, Jenkins, Rogers, Patterson, Kuhn and Austin (we have DTs)
There isn't a NEED on the defense.
However there are positions we can easily upgrade ... MLB probably being most notable. CB is also an area they may want to jump on in anticipation of replacing CWeb next year (and for depth). You could say the same thing about Safety and Rolle and/or Brown. DE you could also make an argument for (and where I think the Giants will go early) with Tuck.
None of them being needs ... but wants. Puts us in a really nice position actually.
We have CBs, but only one of them was worth a damn....
We have DEs but none of them were worth a damn....
We have DTs,but none of them could stop the run & got zero pressure....
I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.
We have no pure edge rusher on this team. The most important asset to have on defense. How is that not a need?

WEll not to mention, outside of a pass rusher, which is a clear need seeing how we didn't have anyone with what, 7sacks last yr?, is MLB, where sure we got Dan Connor and Mark Herzlich, but the problem is, Herzlich has shown nothing, and Connor is a fringe player at best, albeit, i think he fits what we like to do well, and will be a solid player for us, ala Danny Clark(i realize he was strongside, just saying), but my point is, just because we have bodies, don't mean those bodies are good and the positon is not a need..
