We have one of the best defensive front 7 in the league intact, young and most of them will be with us for a long time. You can't pay everyone big money so you have to decide on the best way to build your team. We're putting major money into the D-line, linebackers, and QB. So, to make win big we have to hit on a few FA and the draft. We already did that big time last year in both areas.
At one point we had 5 rookies starting. Our D is going to be fine. I think the way we're set up you don't spend big money on the back end. You try to find serviceable guys and guys in the draft.
Gettlemen has said all along that big guys help you compete. That's his MO. So, with Star and KK in the draft last year and keeping the Kracken we're got a lot of big men on that side. I fully expect the same thing this year on the other side of the line. I think we'll get at least 2 starters or contributors on the o-line. He'll built that up first. He's probably already looked at next years draft to see if WR and OL will be a strong area. Based on that you go BPA and hit those two areas with the o-linemen being more important.
