Cut/let walk in free agency: Nicks, Linval, Meyers, Snee, Webster, diehl, Maybe Kiwi even though savings are minimal, maybe baas as well depending on savings.
Tuck (2 year deal), Beason (fair deal), Andre brown (1 year vet min), Trumaine McBride CB, Stevie brown (1 year vet min), Patterson DT (1 year deal)
Free agent signings:
Alex Mack or Brian De La Puente, Center: this will be our big signing. Solidifying the middle of the O-line for the next 4 years.
Mid-level guard: maybe a Matt Slauson type, have to check whose available.
Cheap solid TE: Scott Chandler of buffalo maybe.
Veteran #2/3 CB
Veteran LB for depth: kick the tires on Daryl Smith, Karlos Dansby. Due to age neither guy will command much.
Luxury signing: Maurice Jones-Drew RB (about 4 mil per on a 3 year deal, I don't think the market will be as high for him as some think, since he is almost 30. Any more than this and I'd be hesitant to look into it further). Love him as a check down option for Eli and he still has ability as a runner.
Wilson and brown will be rotated in to keep everyone healthy.
Round 1: Mike Evans WR: 6'5, 225:
I prefer Sammy Watkins but in this mock I have Detroit taking him at 10. Evans is a Vincent Jackson clone in a lot of peoples eyes. Good speed for a guy his size and would really amp up our WR core with him, Cruz, Randle, and the emergence of Jernigan. Hopefully we find a way to utilize all these guys. I especially want to see some creative ways to get Jernigan out there.
Round 2: Ryan Shazier LB:
pairing him with Beason will solidify the LB core. Great athleticism, coverage potential, may need to add a few pounds in the pros.
Round 3: best interior O-linemen available
Round 4: CB or TE
Wasn't able to add a pass rusher. So hopefully JPP returns to form and Damontre Moore makes an improvement.
Oline is much improved: Beatty, (3rd rounder/Mosley/brewer/baas/low cost FA battle it out), Alex Mack, Slauson, Pugh
Skill players are improved with Mike Evans, Jernigan's emergence, and MJD.
CB depth may be an issue. Hopefully Jayron can develop some more, flashed a little this year.
