With so much focus on defense in Free Agency, I project a huge focus on offense outside 2 of the first 3 draft picks.

Free Agency:

RB Antone Smith

WR Leonard Hankerson

G Mike Person

LB Brooks Reed

LB Justin Durant

CB Phillip Adams

Round 1 Pick 8: Vic Beasley, OLB, Clemson (A)
Round 2 Pick 10: A.J. Cann, OG, South Carolina (B+)
Round 3 Pick 9: Damarious Randall, FS, Arizona State (A-)
Round 4 Pick 8: T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama (A)
Round 5 Pick 10: Jeff Heuerman, TE, Ohio State (A)
Round 6 Pick 9: Tyler Varga, FB, Yale (A)

There's reports saying we met with guard Shelley Smith so if he ends up signing maybe we don't have to take a guard so early.

There's a lot of talks about Southward moving to corner. I wonder of Quinn had his eyes on him in Seattle last year and saw the same thing.

signed with Denver

Um, I don't think he will be (Shanahan) using a full back. If he does, it won't be worth drafting since we resigned the one we have. Probably only in goalline situations will you see a full back, a true full back and we might still mostly see single back backfields even then. Varga isn't getting drafted, a full back isn't getting drafted, you might see us draft 2 TEs though.

Tyler Varga is classified as a FB; but after the senior bowl, I see him as a RB and that's why I took him. That makes a wonderful stable of backs. The kid has power, change of direction and will hit a whole and fight for yards.

Also I don't trust our RBs. I would love to have a veteran in ther . I know a lot of people on here hate to hear this because he is "older" but I wouldnt be mad to spend money on AP

I rather have ray rice than pay AP $15 million for one season then $17 million the next take ready rice on a cheap deal and he is an awesome pass blocker
