Needs Assessment: Rate the positions in order of need

15 posts in this topic

Thought I would get some insignts from you all. After 8 weeks, where do we need the most help? I think our draft would have a lot to do with filling these positions. Here is my take:

1. Wide Receiver: I think we need to move Smitty to the slot and get a true #1. Throw in Lafell, Gettis, Murphy, and Adams, and we finally give Cam some weapons and take the focus off Steve Smith, who will be 34. I prefer a free agent here.

2. Defensive Tackle. We need more push up front. A run stopper who can collapse the pocket. We have a nice set of DEs now that will get better with some inside help. Edwards could be a cap casualty. I think the draft is pretty solid at DT.

3. Right Guard. Our run blocking is terrible. While I expect Silatolu to become a beast, we need a plow at RG. Hangartner ain't it. Maybe a stud falls to the fourth.

4. Free Safety. A defensive QB who can run the secondary. An intelligent hitter. Love to take a S in th second round.

5. Cornerback. If Norman and Thomas continue to play well, and we start getting pressure up front, this need could change.

If you consider where we will be drafting, I expect that we will be somewhere between 10 and 12 again. We have 7 games against teams with losing reconds down the stretch. We could win 5-6 games easily. Expect 6-10, 7-9.

How do you all see it?

I agree with your list. I do think 2-4 is interchangeable depending on who is available in the FA and come draft picks, but we're on the same page.

We have no real clue, I'm comfortable with MLB, C, RB... That's about it.

That is the truth. I MIGHT add TE to the list.

By needs: FS, WR, DT, OG, CB

But by Draft: DT, FS, WR, OG, CB

I pretty much agree with chuck. Considering this draft's strengths, I think our best 1st pick would be Lotulelei or Hankins, even if our DTs aren't looking too bad right now. We need young talent at the spot and this year's group look as good as a group as I've seen in a long time (Star+Hankins+Jenkins+Williamsx2+Short+others I'm probably forgetting > Suh+McCoy+whoever else came out that year). WR group this year looks to be weakish, lotta mid-range guys.

Safety is the biggest need next year but I would not spend a high first on one.I would like us to either take Star or Hankins or a WR

OG

DT/NT

FS

WR

CB

OT

Guard is never a glamor pick, but we HAVE to run the ball. I agree with this, but I think it is very important that we move Steve Smith to the slot. He is tough, gets open, and would be a tough matchup IF we had a stud outside. That would open the offense up.

But we HAVE to run it. Hangartner is weak,

    • I don't even know what the hell ARSEN is rambling on about at this point. First he's trying to have a pissing match about all pro like that makes it okay he posts ignorant poo, and then he's claiming I've asked he be banned, lol I haven't btw. If holding you accountable for your horrendously ignorant remarks hurts your feelings that bad, you better be glad this is just the huddle and not a social media outlet your employer might read. Post this poo about women being raped or black grandmothers being pussies for being afraid of racists threatening them somewhere else and you might be looking for another job. In the real world, your ignorant opinions will harm you sooner or later, and no amount of language barrier excuses will save you.
