The key to a teams success depends a lot on being able to stay healthy.
I would not be surprised to see up to 3 picks for the secondary.

Payton pretty much said you can have a average secondary if you can get pressure in the front.

As for Swann, I wonder if maybe he was converted to a outside corner would he take as many hits or lessen his concussion risk.

With sic picks, we have one we need to address DT with, one we need to address guard with, one we may need to address DE with. So three other picks leaves out any other needs for receiver and kicker.

Half of our picks on the secondary?

I'd be both shocked and pissed.

Did Browner ever get picked up by anyone?

I could definitely see two defensive backs, and both being before the end of the third round...

You got one Free Safety who's been an unmitigated bust of a signing thus far in his over-compensated contract...

And you've only got one option year left on a Strong Safety rookie contract who's shown little progression since mid-season of his rookie year...

Combined, both have missed serious playing time...

In addition, their backups who have been with the team previously have their own health and age challenges...

So that's four~five roster spots with some serious questions...

Not to mention that you still don't have the big, physical corner to complement what we have on the roster...

Nevermind, that Westbank has finished a season healthy and has missed more regular games with with each passing season...

We only have 6 picks. Everything you said about our secondary is no worse than what can be said about DT, DE, OLB, LG, RG, OC, and WR.

If we ignore the BPA strategy then you can easily say DL, OLB, WR, and OL are bigger needs than a 2nd or 3rd DB.

Yes, we need one, maybe even two, but I'd be shocked if we took 3.
