What is the team's biggest need after the draft?
 
Its a simple question. Reviewing our roster, i am fairly satisfied with our starters and depth at QB, TE, RB, DL, OLB, and SS. The most obvious needs i see us having are FS, WR, and ILB, and OT (in that order). What do you guys think is our biggest need right now?

Are there any players available now, or who are expected to be cut at some point in the near future who you think we should pick up? Is there anyone you would trade for or any rookie you think would be worth picking up in the supplemental draft? Right now, i'd love for us to sign Flozell Adams and Darren Sharper. I wouldn't mind signing T.O., but i'd rather us pick up a WR who could play special teams. I have no idea how we should address ILB.

The ONE biggest need? A starting quality tackle. We only have one starting tackle right now.

This need could be filled by Jammal Brown or Alex Barron.

I still think we may have a problem at GUARD. Mike Williams I have high hopes for. But if they end up using Hicks at right tackle, and then Dockery or Williams gets hurt, the whole line becomes discombobulated. Because Hicks has to move and then Heyer takes over or Montgomery comes in to fill in for Dockery or whatever. In my opinion we have some great depth at guard. We just don't have any pro bowl starters, so the depth guys are starting.

One solution would have been pick up LT Flozell Adams, start Trent Williams at right tackle, and then we would have Hicks and Williams battle for the right guard spot.

Yeah I have to agree with the above two posters -- OT and OG are the two biggest need. I have 0 confidence in Mike Williams and would really like to see the other tackle position solidified a little more. I was hoping that the team would make a move for Brown, maybe trade next year's third or something like that.

Yeah, I agree with everybody here. I think we still need to improve the offensive line.

The biggest need, this second, is running back. Wide receiver and offensive tackle are basically tied for second.

We could sign 300 lb JaMarcus Russell to be nose tackle.

Offensive tackle for the right side is our biggest need. We could try to sign Flozell to hold the spot down for a season or two at the most. We could also look at Faneca and the Dolphins will move Smiley for next to nothing to help us at guard.

you should be on comedy central. YOU are hilarious.

3 PRO BOWL running backs on this team and we need to go out and get a running back? That is sooooooooooo funny.

i think we do, they all HAD pro bowl years i would not say the are pro bowl caliber anymore.

we also need more work on the o line, but i also feel we need more lb depth

I don't get how RB is a big need. I don't agree with the people who say all CP, LJ, and WP will all make the team, though. None of those guys play special teams and i cant see us keeping a 3rd RB who doesnt play teams.

Would have loved to see Toby Gearhart (sp?) in Burgundy & Gold.

Championship!

I would say OT and FS. We also need a change of pace RB that can take it to the house...but I am hoping Alridge can become that.

Re: What is the team's biggest need after the draft?
 
I would def have to say our biggest need is WR. Our O-line is not good, but in my mind we only have one HUGE hole on it and that is the RT position. Williams, Dock, Rabach are not really worrying too many people. I feel that between Hicks and Rinehart (and maybe williams) that position will be serviceable. But Heyer (and maybe williams) will be a problem on the right. One problem on the O-line is a problem, but is manageable with extra support (TE/RB help). 4/5 positions are not a big problem on our O-line, but our WR corps is in complete shambles. There should be at least 3 serviceable players when we only have 1 (Moss). And he is not dominant enough to make up for lack of play from the other receivers, he is serviceable, not good. While playing in all 16 games last season he ranked 29th in receiving and 69th in touchdowns. Any decent number one receiver should easily break 1,000 yards when playing all the games. More pathetic though is that neither Thomas or Kelly got 25 yards a game. Our WR corps is a joke. No gamebreaker, and possibly the worst depth in the league (yea I said it).
