At minimum, I'd say sign a rush DT (D.Edwards, Canty, Dorsey, Jason Jones), bring in at least one versatile OL (Schwartz, Donald Thomas, Doug Legursky, Kevin Boothe), a solid vet CB (Keenan Lewis, Greg Toler, Bradley Fletcher, Mike Jenkins), and a solid vet S (Kenny Phillips, Glover Quin, Chris Clemons, Patrick Chung)

I think this would allow us to go BPA.

We have several holes on D. Just OL on offense.


The only glaring hold I see on D is DT.

Luckily for us DT is deep and talented this draft, as are S and CB.

We have needs, like every team, but I don't think we have anything that is as pressing at DT - even with as much as I hate Hangartner as the starting RG.

I wouldn't be upset with anyone at 14 other than QB, RB and LB.

Our S play has been horrible the last 2 yrs.

Gamble is as good as gone that makes CB a hole.

So we need starters at both DT spots, both CB spots unless you feel comfortable with Thomas, and both S spot.

I think we can draft BPA no matter what. We shouldn't be looking to next year, we should be looking to 3+ years down the road. We've been trying for quick fixes for years in order to become immediately competitive and it has failed every time We already made the decision to not compete next season when we kept Rivera, so stick with that decision and draft long term talent.

Should always be the philosophy... sign FA to fill holes and draft talent

Cb, WR, OG and a DT. Then we can take advantage of this deep DT and Safety draft.

Specifically, my latest random idea is that if we can wiggle enough cap room: Re-sign Dwan, get Kevin Boothe at OG & Kenny Philips...go CB, WR, & NT in the draft.

Sign vets at DT. Sign a vet safety. OL not really a priority. People need to get it out of their head about drafting the next home run WR. Draft Best CB available.

OL play was pathetic last year....Kalil being out wasn't the only cause. Right side was weak before the injury
