Yea pretty much but thats not the end of the world considering how stacked we were defensively and that we signed key FAs like Manningham and Moss to give Jenkins time to develop.
BUT that is relative because I think Looney is expected our new "Alex Boone" as our multi-purpose lineman playing both G and C well. Then we have Boone who can play G and T well.
This draft will be fairly key especially if something crazy happens in March regarding our FA's (like if Goldson goes to a new team then its our #1 priority to get Vaccaro or Tony Jefferson because the FA field of Safeties is atrocious. The top 2 expected on the market probably wont make it there Jairus Byrd will probably be franchised, same with Louis Delmas and he has knee problems.)
Then IMHO we need a center like Khaled Holmes in the 3rd because Kilgore as the center of the future is not a given and Goodwin might get cut because of his cap #.
WR is a a bigger need then people think because Rio now has 2 fairly serious shoulder injuries that have caused him to miss time and he is only here for 1 more year. Moss and Gin are not expected back so within the next 2 years we could see up to 3 new WRs on our roster whether its FA or draft.
If we lose Larry Grant to FA we will need a very quality #3 MLB because Grant was good enough that when Willis went down our defense didn't skip a beat.
