Lawson takes off as a passrusher with multi sack game week 7
The following players make the pro bowl:
we sign Willis/Gore/V.Davis to long term extensions
a major OL is signed in FA
a major defender is signed in FA (either passrusher or safety)
OT taken with Carolinas pick (will be much higher pick than ours)
passrusher or safety is taken with our 1st round pick (whichever is signed in FA)
we contend for the superbowl next season.
I don't expect Crabtree to do much of anything until maybe Week 13 or 14 rather.
I expect us to win the division with a 9-7 record.
We must draft at least 3 OL. One RT, one OG, and one versatile tweener. Other 5 picks? FS, SS, CB, NT, OLB (Bly and Harris will be FA's)
Why two safeties? Because Roman needs to be gone, and Lewis's concussions I think are just too much, in addition to the fact that we needed an upgrade there regardless. Now we really HAVE to. If we like Curtis Taylor enough, we could use one of the two safety picks on another OL/DL/Pass-rusher. I don't think we draft a QB this year.
If our first picks fell something like, 1. Berry (Tennessee), 2. Lupati (Idaho), 3. Black (LSU), that would be quite nice. Speaking based on their current values, of course.
