#3 and/or #4 OLB - Depending on if we keep Parys or not we will need 1 or possibly 2 guys. Who knows what Fleming will bring and Cam seems to have nice size but needs to get stronger. Haggins won't be around next year most likely.
3rd Tackle - We don't want to be shuffling Boone around if he is playing well at G. With Person and Hall gone that leaves Wiggins as the only backup T (ps).
5th CB - Brock could be upgraded or get someone good enough to bump everyone down and make the group that much better.
Backup S - Between Spillman and Robinson not sure we have a reliable backup FS or SS.
FS - Will Goldson re-sign and are they comfortable with Spillman starting?
C - Goodwin could be replaced after this year. Is Kilgore the future at center?
WR - Ginn and Moss would be FAs leaving Manningham, Crabtree, Jenkins and Williams (maybe Palmer if he makes it on PS all yr). If Moss does well and is back then it might not be a concern.
NT - Sopoaga and Ricky Jean-Francois are free agents. Look for us to re-sign at least one of them. Not sure Ian Williams could start. If we re-sign one or the other and Ian is the backup I would be fairly confident and maybe not get a guy until late. ILB - Only if we lose Larry Grant and/or Tavares Gooden to FA Down the list...
DE - Good backups in RJF, Tukuafu and Dobbs but if RJF is starting NT we could use another guy.
TE - Only need a #2 if we lose Walker to FA. Possibly a #3.
1. we drafted two OLBs last year - they'll be ready next year
2. looney's got a good chance at winning the RG spot next year -- dude is going to be a beast, and everyone knows that. Boone goes back to swing tackle
3. yeah, we need another CB in the first three rounds or so. Brown is a FA after 2013 as well.
4. need a safety for sure - whitner is also a FA in 2013.
5. Looney can play Center -- he's been working with Jeremy Newberry to improve his skills in that area.
6. We have no business drafting WRs for a long time.
7. RJF is also a FA
idk about your thoughts on recievers. If we get Moss back next year, I say we draft a reciever in the mid rounds that has a high ceiling. Someone who could end up being a RZ target. I really wish we managed to get Brian Quick somehow, he was my favorite WR in the draft. Damn those Lambs. But someone simliar to him. Not the worlds fastest reciever, but I guy that has some talent.
I agree with the rest though.
I say we draft a CB with a higher ceiling than Brown as well. I think he's a good corner, but he's slightly overrated and will end up leaving for big bucks somewhere plus I think Brock gets traded to a team that needs a a #2/3 corner.
This year's draft is supposed to be a good year to draft NTs and Safties so we definitely need to grab a high profile player at one of those poisition, probably NT. ICE is gettin up there ad his contract is running out. RJF could leave in FA so I see us re-signing ICE and then drafting a guy to replace RJF
Our Center will be between Kilgore and Looney but that depends on how Boone does at RG since Looney was drafted to be a RG. Our linemen are a versatile group of guys so it doesnt matter too much but drafting a C and OT in mid-rounds wouldnt be too bad. Just to get some quality backs -ups is the goal.
