Biggest need in general? Maybe. Biggest need to fill through draft? No. You can find serviceable RT's in free agency. While this is a band aid strategy. CB and WR are harder to fill. You have to draft quality talent at those positions. We've put off both positions for far too long. 

 

That being said, I won't be upset with drafting an OT, but I think our team would be better suited drafting CB or WR in the first round. 

 

For further consideration. If Gross retires, OT screams up to the top of our top offseason needs.

You know how risky it is taking WR's early?  We have to protect our franchise QB he's thrown 29 of his 72 passes under pressure this year.  OT or bust, WRs aren't bad.  I want OT in round 1 and CB in round 2

Take an OT next year since it looks like we are top 10.  He will play one year at RT and then move to LT upon Gross retirement.

 

If he is there, take him

i think a LT in the 1st or 2nd would be ideal. WR, and CB are also spots that need to be addressed early.

Maybe we do a LT in the first and a G in the second ala 2013 draft.

It's awesome knowing we will actually have a first, second, and third round pick in one year.

I would like to see 1st - LT, 2nd - WR/DB, 3rd - DB/WR. It all depends on where we draft though.

Love it!!!!

2014 is deep at OT, CB, and WR. Just what we need.

if one of the elite OTs is on the board we must pick them. If all the top tier OTs are gone then we must select the top tier WR or DB.

I'm on the Marqise Lee/Sammy Watkins or LT band wagon. Barring some miraculous run to the playoffs by Rivera I hope we're in position to get one of those impact players and yes, the Left Tackles in this Draft can be impact players....
