As sweet as it would be to get a big-time RB or a great safety with our first round pick, the fact remains that the way you win football games is with a strong pass rush. This team's defensive ends were pretty much non-existent this season (Will Smith had 5.5 sacks, and faced a lot of double teams because Alex Brown did nothing). If this team can get a pass rushing threat to complement Will Smith, it will make our secondary look much better.

I do think we need to invest a second or third round pick in a running back.

My list of priorities: DE, OLB, RB, S

The way our oline got tooled, especially both our tackles, makes that need glaring. We shouldnt have to rely on a once in a generation back to create a running game. How about a line that can move a de out of the way? Or one that gives brees more than 2.5 seconds out of the gun.

We didn't run because we didn't have a Running Back; Ivory, Thomas were Rookie FA's behind this line...

We need a big RB to complement Reggie, Pierre/Ivory...

But we keep forgetting about free agency. This team ALWAYS addresses weaknesses in free-agency allowing us to pick BPA on draft day.

By draft day we may already have secured an OLB and a DE and a DT.

So I like to look at the draft in terms of which players fit best, and will succeed in our system. Just about every position is an option in round one except QB/OG/OC/K/P/FB

But if we do wanna talk current needs and the draft, RB may very well be a need if Bush and PT don't return, and a player like Mark Ingram would be perfect in Payton's system. He's a stronger and faster version of PT. I'll take that all day long and then some.

BPA is BPA for me. If Blaine Gabbert fell down to 24 and we took him, I for one would not crucify our front office. Draft is supposely very deep as far as the DL is concerned, I'm certain we'll get some quality players even if we waited a round.

As long as we don't bust a Sebastian Janikowski in the first round and I'll be okay with whomever our front office chooses.
