You still have plenty of high picks to fill any holes and you have a marquee player.
Where are you getting your math from? This team has holes to fill, additionally they will be replacing about 6-7 guys possibly...they could easily add about 10 rookies, in case you want to see my math..............
Soap.....Goner if he doesn't take a paycut
Moss.....Probably out the door
Walker....Could be gone as well
Alex........Thanks for the memories
Larry Grant.....thanks for everything, good luck with your new starting gig.
That is 10 players, 10 spots that will might have to be replaced, and that's before looking at other potential upgrades as well. So no its not true that this team only has room for 5 or 6 rookies.
