...given what's already been done in free agency, the draft was heavy on players in the trenches (OL/DL)?

I wouldn't mind. A starter on both the offensive and defensive lines via the draft would bode well for this teams success this season. That said, I think we could plug in a FA at one of those spots and address WR or S in the first.

I'd be fine with it. Several of the great teams are built that way and I'd have no problem with it

I'd be fine with that since DT and OL are the top 2 holes we have now.

I'm sure most people here would kill themselves or call out for Gettleman's head, but the fact of the matter is this: games are won and lost in the trenches. I'm all for a WR/S/CB but I'm also for giving Cam the best chance at not running for his life. And conversely, I'm all for a Dline that makes other QBs run for theirs! We haven't missed in the first round of a draft in years, so whichever way we go, I'll support it.

Considering who we are bringing in for visits I'm skeptical were going in that direction but we'll see

Valid. I'm just being hypothetical.

DL, OL, WR, S, CB, would be my need list in order of priority. I would be dandy if we went for big guys in the draft

Well if our OL can give Cam time in the pocket the sky is the limit. If only we had more than 5 picks..

I would love it but as I've seen posted several times on here I feel weird about more youth on the line. I'd bet Gettlemen brings in a few solid vets for the oline. Either now or prior to the start of the season.

Warmack and Kwan Short would be great. I'd even add a mauling tackle in the 4th or 5th to push Bell.

I hope for it. DT, RG and a S are easily our biggest areas of need. In a perfect world we get Star in the first, Rambo or another future stud S in the 2nd, a starting RG in the 4th and good depth players with the other two picks. Wouldn't be upset with Hunter or Hopkins in the 2nd, but the trenches is where our attention is needed the most.

That's what the draft needs to be focused on.

OL/DL/DB/WR remain our biggest needs
