    Title sums it up well,

    What do you think our biggest positional need is this off-season? Doesn't matter if it's fixed via free agent or the draft.. or even a rare trade.

    DE: Morgan had a good year. Wimbley was a disappointment. Virtually no depth.
    DT: Casey had another good year. Martin impressed me. Klug barely played. Marks is a FA.
    OG/C: Hutchinson will retired. Harris, Velasco, Matthews, & Deuce are FAs. Amano will return.
    CB: McCourty is a #1. Verner is average. Coty and Campbell are both raw. Mouton a FA.
    S: Griffs play was down this year. Bab SUCKED. Markelle & Rojo for depth. Avalalavahvlava is a FA.
    ILB: McCarthy was hurt all year, and for the most of his career. Shaw a solid SC'er. No depth.
    WR/TE: Britt is always hurt/in trouble. Nate is getting old. Kendall is young. Cook a FA. CS locked in.
    QB: Hass is way old. Locker is super young, but struggled his year.
    RB: CJ2K is rumored to be back, had a good year. No depth.
    OT: Roos & Stewart slowed down this year, both are 30ish. Otto for depth.

    my vote is on the most important position in the (any) franchise: QB.

    But we won't address it.

    Unless there's a JJ Watt in this draft.. don't care for a DL pick.

    My vote was for DT.

    I love Jurrell Casey and Mike Martin. Klug is a situational guy. But we're missing a legit playmaking DT... a Ngata/Haynesworth guy. You add in a guy who can eat up doubles, get 5-8 sacks still, and allow Morgan/Casey/Wimbley/Ayers/Brown more 1v1s would be huge. Theres a couple of DTs I like in this draft, hopefully we can gobble up one.

    ya, like I said... if there's a JJ Watt there.. we gotta get them..

    Locker over Watt was one of the worst picks since Dyson over Moss..
    Or.. wait.. most of our 1st rounders have been bad picks.

    Horrible looking when you run it down like that.

    OL/CB/DT/MLB/DE/S/RB/QB

    Need one of each..... And more OL.

    Exactly... we need some answers at all these positions.. unfortunately it will take us 5 years of drafting to hopefully be solid at all these positions.. look out, 2018!

    This one is easy, we need better guards and a better center. Fix those positions and everything else fixes itself.

    Running game will take off, which in turn will help the defense and QB.

    YEPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP! I'm on the record to wanting a dominant defensive line player in the 1st that draft. My big board was: Von Miller, JJ Watt, Julio Jones. (didn't like Cam or Aldon). Both Von and Julio were gone at #8, but JJ was available. He would of made a huge difference. We did however pickup Akeem and Casey in the 2nd/3rd round, both are playing at a high level right now.

    I wanted a QB in the 2nd round, Ponder is who I liked. He ended up going early 1st (since we took Locker from MINNY). I bet he would of fell to us in the 2nd if we didn't take Locker. Ponder has been bad thus far in his career as well.

    Just imagine, we draft Watt-Ayers (all QBs are gone, we stick with Hass.. which we did anyways)-Casey... unsure if we still take Casey if we went DT 1st round. Then in the 2012 draft we trade up for our future QB, I doubt we make the RG3 trade.. but a Tannehill trade might be possible. This team with JJ Watt and Ryan Tannehill could of been so much better.

    But none of this matters now anyways lol

    OL is without a doubt my #1b. I just think we need a playmaking DL, that will free up everyone and make the defense 10x better.
