We have plenty of needs, it makes it hard to prioritize. But this is where i am.

OT (Gross is declining and we need his replacement before he retires so he can teach)
WR (Cam needs his Marvin Harrison who will be there and grow with him for a decade)
FS (Though I think S is usually easier to address in free agency than most positions)
OG (Again, free agency if there isn't a good prospect on the draft board)
CB

RG - We are struggling on the interior especially with Kallil out now.
WR - Our WRs are struggling to get open when faced with quality DBs.
FS - Nakamura and Martin doesn't cut it.
CB - Thomas and Norman has done a decent job. But captain is a FA & I'm not sure if Gamble'l be back.
OT - Need to bring in Gross's successor.
DT - Need some depth here. A stud like Star will do nicely.

If we can extend D Edwards for a couple of years I say do it.With that being said I think the biggest point of need will be dbs.Depending on where we pick will determine saftey or cb.I think next I would go after OL or wr

the needs that we have in the trenches i just think are too important to spend gambling and trying to develop draft picks. i would rather have someone who is ready to hit the ground running and i trust that with vets more than i do rookies.

i'd like for us to get in a position because of FA and trades that we could draft the BPA without worrying about holes getting filled.

i'm in this boat, not feeling dt's are particularly worth a high first round, with the exception of a handful of guys. It is definitely a need but they do usually take a while to be worth the pick.

i think for teams that aren't in "win now" mode or who don't have a lot of holes to fill, it's a sound direction.

i just don't think we can afford to pick players that aren't ready to start right away. rookies on the OL or at DT usually play their rookie year like they are on roller skates, regardless of where they are drafted. it's only a few among the very elite that that doesn't happen to.

this team has to find a way to win soon.

Here is where I stand right now:


FA Acquisitions:
1. OG (Big problems in the trenches. Need to keep Cam upright if we are to improve any)
2. DT (The Edwards duo has played well but both are up there in age)
3. FS (No explanation needed)

Top Draft Picks:
1a. LT (Gross has lost a step or four- draft his successor and move him to RT)
1b. WR (Even if we have to trade back in to the 1st, we need to get an explosive number 1 WR this year)

I Apologize for saying this,but the truth tends to hurt & all of you saying we need a WR 1st are retarded & haven't watched the games.The main reason the WR are struggling is because of Sir Cameron Newton: Leader of Men, Lover of Puppies...Esquire & the lack of Running which is Chud fault for running that Damn Read Option Crap so much.WR not a need until 4th RD & beyond.
We have one of the best DE'S rotation in the league, are DT'S cannot get any kind of push up the middle which is why you see Hardy playing DT.Oh yeah didn't a rookie Bryce Brown just run all over us???Gee I wonder why!!!
The first pick should be either DT or OL.Gross is getting old & slow not to mention where paying him so much so if we go OL it would probably be Jockel which makes a perfect situation to release or trade Gross.
We should go after Byrd of the Bills to feel the FS whole & save a pick.Also if we have enough money look to add Henry Melton,but probably Glenn Dorsey or Alan Branch because there cheaper.
WR is not a need until Cam Newton can prove he can stay in the pocket & make the correct reads.He over throws are WR so much or holds onto the ball way to long & don't try to tell me because WR aren't open.Thats BS!!!
Its like everybody saying Blackmon was a bust & couldn't separate.Now look he has a QB getting him the ball & he's put up more yards in 2 games then he had the whole year.A WR is only as good as the QB delivering the ball & right now Cam is not delivering.
By drafting 2 DT & adding 1 through FA we could have one of the best front 7 in the league which would only help are secondary.
Pay attention to the games then you might see exactly what is going on in front of you.This is a top heavy defensive draft.

Ron is gone, too expensive and injury prone, but Dwan will be here next year. He is cheap,
and is playing very well. I'm not against drafting at DT in the first 2 rounds, but we have far greater needs than getting 2 in the first 2 picks.

Gross is one of the biggest possible cap casualties this offseason and I could see OT moving up that list if so.

this team has to have WR at the top of its draft needs.
