Pre-FA Team Needs
 
Please give feedback for your team. It's in order of greatest to smallest but obviously some situations (especially with FAs/release candidates) it's a little muddy. I struggled with interior OL especially. I took into account age and depth but mostly I was looking for positions they'd possibly target in the first three or four rounds.

LB is a bigger need then RB for the Bengals. The Bengals currently have 1 starting LB that is not a FA and I don't see them bring back Maualuga or Lawson.

CashmoneyDrew 02-18-2013 06:39 PM

For the Titans, I'm going to assume they re-sign the biggies like Cook and Bironas, so I'll go with:

1) Guard (x2)
2) Defensive End
3) Strong Safety
4) Defensive Tackle
5) Linebacker Depth
6) Fullback

Caulibflower 02-18-2013 06:45 PM

Seattle:

Defensive Tackle
Right Offensive Tackle
Weakside OLB
Wide Receiver
"Joker" TE
LEO
Nickel Corner

princefielder28 02-18-2013 07:36 PM

Green Bay

1. ILB
2. S
3. DE
4. RB
5. C
6. LT

Running back is a need, but given the style of offense and depth at the position, I don't see it as an early round investment.

Duffman57 02-18-2013 07:36 PM

Chargers:
LT
Rush LB
CB (Jammer/Cason)
OG (Green/Vasquez)
NT (Aubrayo Franklin)/RB/SS

TE is a FA need, as is OG probably.

Just to give another opinion on this.

1) SS
2) Guard
3) DE depth
4) DT depth
5) RB to compliment CJ
6) LB depth

The OT does not have to be a left tackle; Saffold has been fine on that side when healthy. A strong right tackle to replace Barry Richardson would be just as welcome.

I would also put WR and OLB above RB.

Where the hell did those Browns needs come from?

1. OLB
2. CB

AZ's are wrong

1. QB
2. LT
3. RB
4. RG(not a need if we draft an LT and move Brown to RG)
5. CB
6. SILB
7. 3-4 OLB
8. SS
9. Blocking TE

JohnCandy 02-18-2013 08:20 PM

Bears

1. OG

We literally have NO on at LG and our RG is coming back from an ACL.

2. OT

Either a RT, because Carimi was awful or a LT that allows the Bears to move Webb to RT.

3. TE

Kellen Davis and that is all that needs to be said.

4. LB

5. WR [Speed]

6. DE

Peppers is done after this season as he is owed 16 million this season and almost 18 next year.

7. CB

Hayden or Moore will be back and young players Frey and McManis flashed.

gpngc 02-18-2013 08:22 PM

Browns are moving to a 3-4 because of Horton............................................ .........

oh.

Our two best players from last year are Jordan and Hicks, who project very well as 34 DEs. I personally would put ILB in there above S, but some believe David Hawthorne can play it.

Pretty much dead on. J'Marcus Webb was actually right about average last year according to PFF. And he was pretty solid after the SF game. Carimi was terrible, and I'm almost positive he'll be an OG this coming year. Can't afford to have him and Webb at OTs again and he doesn't deserve to start over Webb. I'd also move CB up. I'd guess Hayden would be back because he got PT over Moore last year. It's a new coaching staff, but Hayden is also a Chicago boy and at least has a shot to play outside in case of injury, unlike Moore. Even if Tillman restructures and Jennings extends, all 3 guys will be over 29. Need some youth there.

Philly:

1) Nose Tackle
2a) Tackle/Guard
2b) Safety
4) Corner
5) 3-4 OLB
6) Quarterback

vidae 02-18-2013 11:35 PM

You have the right needs for KC but free agency could drastically change that list.. as it can with pretty much every team.

Kof Moshiach 02-19-2013 12:10 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars

QUARTERBACK ALWAYS PRIORITY#1 unless you have one (we don't), until then here are the rest

1. Defensive End
2. Cornerback
3. Defensive Tackle
4. Outside Linebacker
5. Right Tackle
6. Tight End (*Stretch Field*)
7. Interior O-Line

CHI

UT
MLB
SLB
RT
LG
CB (#1, not nickel)
TE
OC
WR (slot)
LT
RB (#2)

UT will likely be filled by a franchised Henry Melton. Either MLB or SLB will be filled by a re-signed Nick Roach. LT is a low priority need. Our LT has finally become merely averagish, rather than bottom 5 like he was. We currently have no RT or LG. Carimi will probably be the RG. He outperformed Louis there last season and Louis is not a fit with the new offense. Sadly, only Webb and Carimi really fit the run blocking scheme Aaron Kromer has traditionally used and he's our new run game coordinator, so...yeah. Only LT and RG are ok on the O line. I guess if a great LT falls to us we could move Webb to the right side, but that's not playing to his strengths, at least with what they were last season. We'll be cutting one of our top two running backs in 2014 and our #3 is a FA right now, so that's a late round possibility.

Corner will be a #1 type, not someone who can strictly play slot, so no tiny guys who can't hang with real players on the sideline. He'll play nickel this year, but both of our outside corners are FA next year, so he'd take over there in 2014. We'll probably have to get one early now, though. I doubt the staff wants to roll with a rookie being thrown into the scheme when it's time.

TL;DR First three round possibilities:
MLB or SLB
CB
OT
OG
OC

Replace S and DE with OG and OT, then you have it

The Bears' two biggest needs can be solved by either drafting a guy like Lane Johnson or getting a FA LT. That way they bump Webb to RT and Carimi to guard.
