    Yes, We need another full time starter at DT beside Casey. Dline has been manhandled multiple times this year, starting with DT

    Casey is strong against the run but he is not enough. we need a DT than can command double teams and pouha can do just that. thus freeing up LBs for plays. my hope would be that with pouha drawing most of the attention Casey could take advantage of that and become more of a threat rushing the passer. Plus we could always slip Klug in for a Pass rush (though i know he is not a push the pocket kind of guy

    i have very little doubt that Konz can come in and start and as far as Z goes i would hope that velasco can fill that roll if he is not ready but you are right having a vet OG might not be a bad ida

    Im admittedly banking on improved play from most of our front 7. But they all should improve Morgan coming off his first full year playing and Fully recuperated from the ACL, Jones improving in 2nd year at DE, Casey improving with experience, Ayers improving with experience, McCarthy improving with experience, and witherspoon continuing to do his job. I dont think we should be making many starter changes yet in the front 7. We have to many player showing promise.

    Washington is starting the other WR bracket is on the end of the OL

    I think we need consistent DEs more than DTs.

    @Finnebosch the only real problem i see with your offseason plan is the Cliff Avril signing. I think he is good but idk how good he will truly be without fairley and suh attracting all of the attention in the middle. It seems like he will be singled out as the only major threat rushing the passer.

    I say we should look into moving Jones back to DT and look at DE in Free Agency.

    He will go to Detroit or Philly as most of our old players go

    1. Mark Barron- SS
    2. Brandon Jenkins- DE
    3. Ben Jones-C

    Would love this draft. Assuming Jones falls that far but the draft is far away, who really knows.

    @Finnebosch,

    we're so much alike. Both want Nick Hardwick & Devon Still. Also, you've taken my sleeper in Jermaine Kearse as a late pick. Love that off-season plan man!
