5. Weakside Linebacker
Scott Shanle has manned this spot for two years but it's time for an upgrade. Shanle's value resides in being a versatile backup.

That's why I want to draft a LB in the first.

1. Starting CB. McKenzie tore his ACL at the END of the year, and David is horrible.

That's why I want to draft a CB.

Re: Team needs by position:

I would think in order it would be:
CB
MLB
DT
OLB
CB again
WR
S
TE
DT again
DE


Thats my top 10 team needs in order of importance.

Re: Team needs by position:

I don't care what/who we draft anymore as long as they will make this team better!

Re: Team needs by position:

I don't think we should draft for need, but for what it's worth this is my list of priorities:

1. DT - We would get a better pass rush if we had better interior linemen
2. MLB - This simply continues to be a weakness. Also, we should focus on a run stopper and not a quick, pass defender type.
3. OLB - Shanle is passable at best.
4. CB - We need someone to be our #1. If MM recovers well, this would a good secondary with one more CB.
5. WR - We need a legitimate burner.
6. TE, C, or DT

That seems about right to me.

Re: Team needs by position:

MLB- THIS IS A MUST
CB-THIS WILL DEPEND ON SIGNING SAMUEL
WLB-THERE ARE ENOUGH GOOD LBS OUT THERE FOR THIS PICK TO MAKE AN IMPACT THIS YEAR
DT
C
WR LETS HOPE THAT WE CAN FIND A SOLID PLAYER AND LAST YEARS NO. 1 GETS HIS HEAD ON STRIGHT.

All that being said if Vernon Gholston is there at 10 all bets are off
