Craig Robertson is a baller. He makes plays every time he's in. I'm glad to see most of the low grades went to backup linemen. Klein is an effort player much like Shanle. We need to get better at linebacker for sure. Davis so outshines the others it's not even close.

Guard is essential. Peat is a goner and Warford is unspectacular as well. WR is a must if we want to make it to the playoffs again. That leaves DT and LB'er. If we had styed healthy then these two positions would have graded better. It really came down to the depth across the board being the key to our late season struggles.

Edit: I really like Craig Robertson as a back up. He is always around the play and he's a thumper. Unfortunately, he gets a little slower each year. He's not starter material anymore but I'm glad he's on the team to come in when we need him. He's not the best but he's a fine man to step up when needed.

Needs this off season in order...
DT
OG
WR
LB

Fortunately, there are a ton of free agent DTs and OGs this year. The draft should be used for WR and LB, but these other positions could easily be improved with free agent signings. Two guys I like that shouldn't break the bank...

A'Shawn Robinson, DT, Lions. Age: 25.
A'Shawn Robinson played well in 2018, but took a step backward this past season. Robinson had been dealing with a knee issue entering the year and ended up missing a handful of games, so his 2019 decline can be attributed to him being banged up.

Johnathan Hankins, NT, Raiders. Age: 28.
Johnathan Hankins' pass-rushing ability has declined in recent years, but he's still a monstrous run stuffer.

Price tag would be high for this one, but our D would be unstoppable.
Leonard Williams, DE/DT, Giants. Age: 26.
Leonard Williams failed to log a single sack in 2019, but that's not indicative of how well he played. Williams was a force in the trenches, as both a pass rusher and a run stuffer.
Great post, 100% agree.

We need to make some good hits in the off season. Us making no real moves last year, and then none before the trade deadline during the season, didn't help matters.
