In other words, what personnel would you ideally want if you were going to run the pistol as a base offense?
In my view, you want WRs with excellent pass catching skills (when you option backs out to WR), and you'd want H back type tight ends. In addition, physical WRs that can break a tackle and turn a bubble screen into a big play would be good.
So, how would you draft based on what we have now?
You want athletic offensive lineman that can pull trap and get to the second level. You want two to three TE's, that can all block, play hback, slot wr, te, and can catch. You want WR's who can stretch the field that are a threat for the deep ball, and wr's who can block.
WR's- Crabtree, Manningham, AJ Jenkins,- sign Crabs and Manningham to extensions now, lock up to young WR's to develop with CK7, draft tall speedster wr
RB- Gore, LMJ and Hunter- maybe sign Hunter to modest two year extension, draft another rb who can do PR duties. RB has to have vision patience and is fast enough to get to the outside.
TE- VD, Celek- Draft Ertz or kid from notre dame or UCLA, Need more consistency from #2 TE.
OL- Draft athletic swing tackle and center
QB- Draft developmental qb that has a high ceiling but would be available in rounds 3-7.
