Originally posted by KRS-1:Originally posted by GEEK:Agreed. WR, RB, DT are the three major weaknesses on the team right now.
Watkins - WR (R1), Tuitt - DT (R2), Freeman - RB (R3) and throw in a LB, Interior OL, TE, and a few other players, and the Raiders will be looking pretty damn good on paper heading into training camp.
What about QB ? They need a QB to develop. If they are not picking a QB at 5, they would benefit from a trade down there.
Go QB in R3 instead if needed.
But honestly, one reason why Kaepernick has been successful with the 49ers is because he had talent in place. Alex Smith finally performed at a high level after that talent developed, and Kaepernick reaped the benefits.
Let Schaub be the unquestioned QB for the year and see how he performs with a good offensive core around him. Watkins, Jones, and Moore make up a SOLID WR unit. O-Line has improved. Their D will be much better with key vet additions.
If Schaub falls on his head, then enjoy having a high draft pick and select your QB in 2015.
