I do too. I think if I could pick 3 that would have the greatest impact it would be Lotulelei, Brown and Colvin.

Burton and Brown are nice to haves.

Yes - WR Danny Amendola, NE (But would he leave NE?)
Yes - TE Trey Burton, PHI
Yes - CB Aaron Colvin, JAX (But would he want to stay at slot?)

What about Star JP? It’s no secret Fairly was counted on to be the man and he was sorely missed. I feel like Star could make our D line tremendously strong.

Let me preface first then quantify my response...

I'll be the first to tell you that I don't believe ProFootballFocus and their objective grading system is an absolute...

However, let's use it for perspective, if you will...

Tyeler Davison had an overall grade of 81.0 (0 Sk, 22 Tk), followed by David Onyemata 80.9 (2 Sk, 18 Tk), then Sheldon Rankins 80.7 (2 Sk, 16 Tk)...

Lotulelei's previous years' grades: 2013, 81.1 (3 Sk, 34 Tk); 2014, 79.8 (2 Sk, 21 Tk); 2015, 62.5 (1 Sk, 13 Tk); 2016, 69.7 (4 Sk, 14 Tk)...

Star Lotulelei overall score for this past year, 2017? Ouch, 49.5 (1 Sk, 6 Tk)...

Again, PFF grading isn't some absolute, but that significant a drop in any scale is alarming, and the production, or lack thereof, is in the stat books...

We need help all along the defensive line, but if we're gonna spend, make it count like Jimmy Graham at Tight End, Avery Williamson or Anthony Hutchens at MLB...

Real Upgrades on the D-line would have to come in the draft; maybe geaux after a guy that is versatile, effective but a RFA - David Irving, DAL...

Of course, Tyrunn Walker is looking for employment...

Numbers do not tell the story but I'll bet you Luke Keuchly will tell you just how much Star means to a front 7

That's a good point which I'll counter you - Luke hasn't gotten protection, has been getting beat up, a lot, this past two, three seasons as well...

Guys up front aren't protecting their MLB as they once did either...

Oh, now you're talking; only concern is whether he was a one-year wonder or not...

I like signing the Cowboys Anthony Hutchens as a MLB, but can play the WLB as he covers well...

Then we're not in a situation to take a MLB in the first three rounds...

(yeah, I know we've gotta make a trade to get a second rounder)...
