    Lets be honest guys.

    We'll take a WR. Probably a slot guy.

    On obvious passing downs, or specific pass rush situations, yes. However, like KW, he struggles mightily against the run with his hand in the dirt.

    I've seen AA (and KW) get blown off the line or out of the play many times as down linemen on run plays.

    Maybe with a bit more time they can get better as I know they are both somewhat new to the position. But regardless these smaller guys just might not be able to handle the 4-3 DE position.

    The thing is from our 3 OLBs (KW, AA, and ZB) I don't know if I'd want to move any to MLB. If I had to, I might try with KW first as he is the most experienced and seems the strongest from the group. MLB's usually face 'G' on run plays, so he might have the strength to hold up and from blitzing alot against linemen, he might be the best suited to shed blockers to make a play on the ball carrier. The one thing I had against Colin was at times he got eaten up by linemen on run plays...

    Could be worse. We could be Bills. The Bills rebuilding plan:
    • Have a good starting RB (Travis Henry); take an RB in the first round who has a blown out knee (Willis McGahee)
    • Trade away good starting RB for third round pick
    • Once first round RB starts to get good trade him away and draft another RB (Marshawn Lynch)
    • Draft another RB with the 9th overall pick (CJ Spiller) and trade existing RB (Marshawn Lynch) for a third round pick
    • While all this is happening have a solid RB (Fred Jackson) on the roster
    Now that is a plan for success lol

    I say we pick a DT that can take on double teams, and a SS that doesnt whiff on tackles. That will complete our defense.

    Offense needs more work IMO. At least two new linemen are needed to even give us a chance.

    Agree. A big DT fixes a lot of our defensive problems IMO. It allows the DEs to get to the passer more, which will help hide our crappy safeties. It keeps OL off our LBs allowing them to make more plays, and if we can stop the run better we will get off the field faster keeping everyone fresh. Add a new safety or 2 to the mix and our D is fine.

    Then the rest of our resources should be focused on the OL.

    Safety or OL with or first pick.

    I like or young corners and linebackers , I'd add depth to our front 7 but I don't see that as the biggest need

    Anyone think we could deal with the Rams... they hold the 16th pick & Wash First (21st+)

    16/21 = 10?

    Maybe if Jockel or Matthews is available at 10? I doubt they would since they have many needs. But I would love to pickup 16 and 21.... that would mean Chance Warmack and Matt Elam.
