    Cory Lynch, boom!

    But seriously, theres a crap load of safety FA's coming up in 2014, if we need one we'll have a lot to choose from.

    we do need a third safety, but I wouldn't put backup safety on top of the needs list.

    Yes, not on top. I would like to see though another young safety besides Damian Stafford. Unless they think Stafford is another 7th round gem.

    Really don't want to use another high draft pick on an O-lineman. I badly wanted Cooper/Warmack this year because i thought they would be the final piece to solidifying our OL for years to come but now that that didn't happen I'm not willing to take another risk on an unknown. Cut Big Country's sucky ass and sign Saffold/Winston to a 3-5 year deal. Now we got a vet at tackle that can't help our young guys out. Still wanna draft a Tackle later on though, Roos looks shaky this season.
    J Falk high fives this.

    We aren't taking any linebackers, thinking that is pretty dumb.

    Our needs are going to be OT, DE, RB, and someone on special teams that has some return abilities.

    Honestly, even if we take a linebacker or OT, it isn't going to matter. Our coaches for those positions are going to eliminate any talent we actually put there. I'd rather us take a receiver or defensive back because at least those position coaches can coach themselves out of a paper bag.

    In what round? I think the NFL has made safeties undraftable in the early rounds.

    Sad but true.

    I think this year we go back to the DE position. Unfortunately I haven't done any homework on those prospects this year. So I have no idea who to suggest.

    What would be interesting is to see us just wait on the tackle position like we rode out amano for too long...

    I think this draft rests heavily on if munch is fired of not. Webster is sticking around (thankfully) but a new HC would have a huge say in the direction he wanted to go.

    Safety... Couldn't see one getting drafted early for us.

    Yea......I think you should just draft tall guys with some cover skills for safety these days.

    I am pretty disappointed with how this year turned out, as is everyone. Mainly because it has shown to how any needs we still have. DE is a must have, and early. OT needs to be taken early as well, but I have a feeling we will get surprised here. In the off chance Verner isn't back, corner will be a need. I think we need to get a QB, Murray, and I wouldn't be upset if we got the best receiver we could get out hands on sometime around the 4th or later.

    Unfortunately for us, we have been stuck in purgatory and now the texans are about to land bridgewater in this draft (who I think is a legit concern for us). Then the JagRags will be drafting another QB as well... Carr?m

    We could quickly be wondering if we are least talented at the QB position after next season. Luck and bridgewater will give us fits for the next 10.

    I'm not sure defense is that ignorable.
