DL. Kalil coming back will make most of the OL issues fall into place. I don't think R. Edwards will be back, and even if he is we could use an upgrade anyway. One DT makes a lot more difference to the success of a unit than one G, hence the big difference in their pay ranges.


This is true, but it goes the same way on offense too, having a stud guard will help strengthen the passing game and running game. We are paying 2 RBs massive contracts and i barely getting anything out of them, the run game has been pretty much non existent on this team for the past 2 years. Most of the time on pass plays when Cam gets hit its by someone coming right up the middle and blowing by the guards.I just think a stud G will have as just as much impact as a DT.

OL is a bigger need than DL. With that said, we might be drafting in a position where getting a DT over Warmack would make sense in the first round. Our selection of him very early might be a reach, all things considered.

D-line, both Edwards boys are in there 30's. We need a big man in the middle to push the pocket.

The number 1 need in this draft is oline without question. Dline is way down the list IMO.

OL, WR, S, TE, DL, CB. In that order.

When evaluating our 3-tech DT play, please note that there probably isn't another team that has gotten better stats out of that position than we have with Dwan and Greg.

O-line help...but before that I really hope we go WR first. Cam needs a tall receiver and a reliable red zone target. We've been putting off getting a #1 WR for some time.

Couldn't agree more. FA is an option too if we go elsewhere in the draft.

OL, but I really think there is just one spot on each line that needs help.

OL- Hangartner just gets pushed around and should remain a back up.

DL- If you can extend Dwan for a few seasons you really only have to worry about Ron after ending both seasons here on the IR and he's already one of the older guys. Joints on guys that size that take that kind of beating don't seem to last too long.

I'd love to take Hankins in the first, then the top OG in the second.
