Pick 5 starting positions you would like to see someone replace who we had in 2010

36 posts in this topic

To draft or FA, not necessarily looking for who you'd draft or sign to put there (but you could include that analysis if you want), just what are the first five starting positions you would "fix" if it were up to you

1. Quarterback - it all falls apart without one.

2. Defensive Tackle - this defense would be sooooo legit with some interior presence against the run and the pass.

3. Tight End - Rivera wants a legit TE and unless Rosario shows something big we will need a new one.

4. Defensive Tackle - we're 5 deep with crap. I like Landri too but he's the best of a bad situation.

5. Offensive Guard - Guard play was turrible this year. I think we could get by with Bernadeau/Schwartz especially with Otah back, but at the minimum we need some competition.

1. QB: Veteran, NOT through high draft pick. We have a project and if there is a lockout, I would rather have Luck than Gabbert or anyone else. But lockout aside, we need a veteran to lead the team. Not another rookie.

2. DT: Don't really want Fairley overall, but we desperately need help there and he would be my third choice, behind PP and Bowers. I consider this our biggest position of need.

3. FS/CB: I want more depth in the secondary in a division with Brees, Ryan, and the noteable Josh Freeman. I say FS or CB because if I could only pick 5 positions I would want 4 and 5 to be...

4. O-line: Unlike many on this forum, I think we have a very good O-line when healthy, but we need a little more depth *ccough cough, Otah, cough*

5. TE: With the new staff in place we will actually use our TEs. I like the guys we have, but lets try not to be homers and face the facts. None of our guys are really anything above average.

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
