    I mean, of course Locker needs the guys in front of him to give him more time to get rid of the ball, so I do not consider it an immediate need. Saying that, I do not think it is something we should neglect and have a :hitthefan:situation next year in the event that: Washington is another year older, Britt has made himself not welcome, and Cook wants nothing to do with us. That leaves us with Wright..........

    Give ourselves insurance, that way if Britt or Cook blow up, we atleast have some bargaining room in contract talks.

    Understandable.

    I am for a WR, but the WR I want won't be there when we get our "NEEDS" out the way.

    I may have to look more into this Quinton Patton guy. I haven't really heard of him or watched Louisana Tech. Let's hope he is not Troy Edwards JR.

    -We already found a SS for this year. We can draft another Safety later and try and develop him. We can also draft one early next year to compete with Wilson for the starting job that next season.

    -If we sign a starting OG when free agency starts that takes off the pressure of drafting a Warmack or Cooper in the 1st or pushing for another in the 2nd. You can still find starters in the 3rd and 4th.

    So we're really looking at CB and DL, with OL going somewhere in the top 3. If we sign Canty then it comes down to either drafting a DE, WR, or CB with one of the picks. If I'm going BPA one of those WR's are going to win almost every time.

    What are the odds of the Titans trading back a couple of picks to secure another second round pick? This could help us get some needs out of the way and still be in contention for one of the early second round receivers. If Hunter falls to early 2nd round, I would have no problem taking him early 2nd round.

    WR is getting talked about but what about TE?

    Jared Cook is no TE, and Stevens and Thompson can only do so much.

    Perhaps we go TE earlier than anyone would ever thing...

    Would have to trade back more than a couple picks to get another second.

    IMO trading back might be our best option. I have a feeling the guards will fall like DeCastro did last year. Another 2nd would be amazing. If we traded back to 16-17 I think we can get another 2nd. One of the guards would be there at least. Also Ansah, Banks, Tavon Austin. Def gives us flexibility.

    Robert Woods is the best receiver in this class. If he's there in the second we should take him.
    He didnt drop one ball yesterday and his route running is prestine.
