Post your team needs here in order of importance.
My thoughts on the Patriots
4. 3-4 Olb
7. 3-4 Ilb
It's hard to read how the coaches/front office will gauge our needs in order, but here's my guess:
1. Outside linebacker
2. Interior offensive line
4. Defensive end
5. Offensive Tackle
6. Running Back
3) Tight End
4) Strong Safety
5) Outside Linebacker
In my opinion....
1. PassRushing DE
3. #1 WR
2. LT (or just OL in general)
3. DB (S and CB)
4. DL (DE or DT)
1c DT (pref Nose but Ellis can play both)
5 RB (one of Pierre Thomas & Reggie Bush will prolly be let go)
6 Interior OLine depth
1. Pass rushing DE
2. Playmaking, attacking, MLB
3. True Free Safety
4. OL at any of the four spots not manned by Penn
5. Speed RB
7) D-Line backup
1a. FS/SS - We don't have any respectable prospects at this position that could make a big impact in the next few years.
1b. QB - We need "That Guy" and we don't have him right now and I think the Jaguars are begging for "That Guy".
2. OLB - OLB are weak except for Daryl Smith and I think Justin Durant could be replaced if needed too.
3. DE - Pass Rushing DE would be #3 if I didn't know Aaron Kampman was coming back and with Knighton and Alualu doing a pretty good job I don't see this as the #3 need but if the BAP is a DE I think we would take em.
4. Interior O-Line - Depth at the Guard spot and a young center to take over when Meester is done is pretty much all were asking for here.
Kansas City Chiefs:
1a. OLB - We need someone else who can pressure the QB.
1b. WR - We need someone opposite Bowe. We have McCluster in the slot and Moeaki at TE, but we need another big body on the outside.
3. C - I don't buy that Niswanger is the future and Wiegmann is up there. We need a future starter at the position.
4. NT - We have no prospects at this position on the team. It absolutely must be addressed.
5. ILB - Belcher has played well, but not great. It's a position that can definitely be upgraded.
1. Center/G/OT (OL) - we could use an upgrade at any position
2. QB - Could also use an upgrade here
3. DT - Henderson and Seymour obviously getting up there.. Houston could play end
Outside Linebacker - Jermaine Cunningham looks like a solid starter, but Rob Ninkovich and Tully Banta-Cain aren't anything special. Getting an impact pass rusher would be just what the doctor ordered. New England likes big, physical linebackers who can set the edge in the run game.
Center - Dan Koppen has a ton of experience and knows all the line calls, but New England has had trouble defending against pressure from up the middle this year, and Koppen isn't strong enough to defend against all the nose tackles in the league nowadays.
Offensive Tackle - Matt Light is 32 and in the last year of his contract. Sebastian Vollmer will start on one side of the line for the foreseeable future, but even if Matt Light re-signs, the Patriots will most likely look to start grooming a future replacement for him.
Wide Receiver - Brandon Tate has struggled to find his place in the offense and Taylor Price is a big project. Since trading Randy Moss, New England has lacked a wide receiver who commands special attention and can make plays downfield.
Running Back - BenJarvus Green-Ellis has played better than expected, and Danny Woodhead is a nice back as well, but neither one can be called a top-shelf runner. This team has lacked a feature back ever since Corey Dillon left.
Defensive End - Another position with solid contributors but no stud. This is a deep position with Ty Warren, Gerard Warren, Ron Brace, Brandon Deaderick, and Mike Wright, but the team could be tempted to take a strong, two-gap defender who can control running lanes.
Offensive Guard - This is only a need if Logan Mankins doesn't return. Dan Connolly has been perhaps the team's most consistent lineman all year, but next season is Stephen Neal's last and a future starter at the position is needed.
2) Coaching staff
3) OT/OG/C (all of equal importance)
4) Receiver...must be large/physical/Capable of being force-fed the ball.
6) FS/CB (of equal importance, must be great in coverage)
7) MLB of the future
Things that shouldn't be mocked to us in any round: QB, RB, TE, SS, small speedy WRs, WLB
Thing that shouldn't be mocked to us in the first round: DE (in fact, don't mock us a DE in any round unless someone amazing falls and is a too-good-to-pass-up value)
For the Titans...
3) Tight End
4) Defensive End
5) Linebacker/Strong Safety
Re-signing some of our FA's could change this, and I'll update this if anything changes.
