MSalmon Posted May 1, 2015 Share Posted May 1, 2015 Seems the lord almighty had pity on us and we got our athletic edge rusher in Vic Beasley. It had to be hard to sit still in that war room until number 8--but TD/Pioli did a great job.These are how I see our positions that need upgrading or in need of an infusion of talent:1) edge rusher--never have enough 2) Safety (Either spot really)3) Running back4) Linebacker (maybe swapped with running back)5) Left Guard (maybe higher, but could be mid round with zbs)--NOTE: maybe LG solution is on roster?Other minor holes:1) TE---minor because I'm not sold that we need an elite TE..more a good one that can catch and block...tamme also fills that hole short term. If Moeaki is healthy--we're golden2) WR--I think Hankerson with Ryan as QB may end up being a great signing. Still, it's a good draft to get a talented WR late3) Base DE--you know the bigger stout guy on the left side...goodman is someone to consider and we have TJax...but this could still be an area we at least add depth. A healthy Clayborn may be fine as wellWith our biggest need out of the way (and arguably the hardest need to fill!) , I'm looking at the players available in the second round and salivating a bit--great talent still out there. The top guys for me in the second are as follows:4) CB--could be a higher need depending on whether they view Dez as a cb or notEDGE/DE:1) Gregory (in the second? Why not)2) Diggy from UCLA3) Preston Smith4) Eli Harold5) Danielle Hunter6) Nate OrchardFolks, there is a glut of good edge rushers available. Someone will be there in the third as wellDBs:1) Landon Collins2) josh shaw (could be cb as well)3) Quentin Rollins4) Eric Rowe5) Ronald Darby6) Jalen CollinsThis is an interesting list as most on here could line up as FS or cb in Quinn's schemeOL:1) Jake Fisher2) Donavan Smith3) TJ Clemmings4) Marpet--much shorter list, but all listed could be LGs or RTsRBs:1) Ajayi --he's slipping I bet2) Coleman3) Yeldon4) Duke Johnson5) Abdullah DL (bigger guys who play 5 tech, NT,base DE or DT):1) Mario Edwards2) Jordan Phillips3) Carl DavisLB1) Kendricks2) McKinney3) perryman There are a ton of WRs. Unless we. Took chance on DGB, I'm not sure we go WR in second. TEs are unimpressive tbhOf my board I rank Safety, G and LB as least deep in talent :My board is as follows:1) Gregory --if you feel you can handle the character concerns, he's still a first round guy in a hard position to fill. Having Beasly mitigates risk if he's ever suspended . Boom or bust guy2) Landin Collins:--Landon is a great talent at S 3) Eli Harold--long pass rusher who's a mad man flying around the field 4) Fisher:--highly Athletic OL in a zbs. Can definitely man LG or RT5) McKinney--stout run defender with great length and some pass rush ability6) Carl Davis--humongous man-child with size and athleticism 7) Yeldon--every down back with size and burst. 8) Diggy--muscular athletic DE who's athletic enough to stand up9) Kendricks--will and chase backer that flys all over the field10) Eric Rowe-- Rangy defender who I think is a FSYour top ten?
