Agreed. Casillas needs to stay healthy, but I really like his effort. I think we may have the players at that position, but I would still be disappointed if we do not address it in the off-season. Bushrod is not the answer either. Has been our biggest weakness on the O-Line since Jammal Brown left. Was hoping Charlie Brown would develop...

Ellis has taken two MAJOR steps back without even asking "Mother May I"?

Watching Brady tonight, there's still hope for our superbowl chances.

Rogers; Ellis; and Franklin have excelled in run defense the last half of the season... Just clogging the line, they don't show much athleticsm...

Not having a first round pick this upcoming year makes me less excited about the draft. Our front office has done a nice job finding guys in the mid to late rounds on offense but not so much on defense. I would love to see us get a pass rusher off the edge and some athletic linebackers.

Damn. Forget about that. Thanks for rubbing the salt.

You build a good defense from the front back. We need D-linemen and then LB's.

Nothing wrong with our back-end. Without a good front 4 any DB will get toasted.

Our DB's are fine, we have 1 good LB (Vilma) and 1 promising young one in Wilson.

We have 1 good D-lineman (Smith, and thats debatable) and 2 promising young ones in Galette and Jordan.

Everyone else in the front 7 has journeyman talent.

I think Smith has gotten slow. He has been "ok" for awhile but we need a speed guy there. Martez is going to be a beast. If I remember right, he was in the picture on everyone of the sacks. So I'd say: OLB, DT, OT

Agreed. All except for the 1 good D-lineman. Will Smith is done! We need talent on the edges & we need it now!

Move Harper to OLB, bring in a Safety that can cover. Takes care of two positions right there to me.

This draft is pretty deep at OLB and decent DT. But we probably end up going BPA again or reaching for a position we dont need.
