Offensive line if we stick with # 3. If we get a late 1st and 2nd, some combination of OL, RB, or WR would be welcome.

i would totally be down for a Guy like Fisher. o-line is so important. with a good o-line we can have an avg. qb do great things, and dmc would tear up the field with consistent open holes. but even if we sign another Guy for the right side, what is our depth like on the o-line?

The guy who wrote this is wearing rose colored glasses. He makes it sound as if we are on the cusp this season. I think we need another season or two before we are making playoff noise. But hey, hopefully this guy is right.

Everybody keeps talking O-line. Beside RT, the O-line played pretty good past year. We have big physical offensive lineman, built to play the power blocking system. In my opinion, even our back ups are pretty good in the power blocking system. We need DTs. We had major problems stopping the run for what seems lime a decade now. The FA pick ups at DT was good, but we need depth. I hope we trade back, maybe even twice all the way to the late teens. Everybody says this draft isn't deep, but this is 1 of the deepest drafts for instant defensive impact in a while. We could still get Long in the 3rd possibly. We don't need WRs. RM can just bring back Eddie McGee on a 1 yr FA deal. He's big physical & has good hands. We can take a WR late with 1 of or three 6th rders. We don't need corners, we have about 6 or 7 on roster right now. We need safeties. Hybrid type safeties & there's an abundance of them in this years draft. RM just has to prepare to improvise & pull the trigger when the run on safeties begins. The offense will be fine with Dmc in the PBS. We need the defense to be competitive & dominate in the run game to have any kind of success. Took a while & a whole lot of pain watching done of my favorite players go, but I now have trust in RM. He's doing a good job. Now if it can only trickle down to DA.

i totally agree with a bunch of this. i am not concerned about wr, db is covered, lb too, but we really need help with d-line and safety depth, and after reading yours and putting more thought into it, i think the o-line is setup to do a great job in the PBS. the way the line is setup, these guys should excel...so i'm actually leaning towards DT first. and after signing stewart we're three deep at RB now too. d is where there are significant gaps that really need to be filled up. we're getting there though! i was so nervous when reggie was getting rid of everyone and not signing anyone in that first week of craziness, but he's really doing a good job so far with just filling up gaps with the little we have to work with. can't wait to see what happens come draft time!
