What does Arthur Smith need to form a top 5 offense?

He's got an exceptional QB

*RB is in question 

He's got an arguably elite WR corp

*OL has great potential with an addition at OG or sliding McGray/Matthews and signing/drafting the future at OG or OT

*TE could use a reliable TE2 (we should retain Graham as TE3)

Defense is obviously a talking point, but we're focused on offense in this topic. 

I say we sign a veteran G for the oline or draft one Rd1-3

Sign either Jamal Williams or draft a RB Rd2-3

Sign a veteran TE or draft one Rd2-4

This leaves Rds 1, 4-6 (7 picks in all) as guys to fill in the rest potentially (assuming we sign at least one veteran to fill RB, TE, OL)

Yes our defense needs some help. But having Dean Pees will help. This league is turning offensive. Shoring up our offense will only help the defense. I know drafting DL, CB, and S is necessary, but Arthur Smith's genius on offense will help any short comings on defense with TOP.

In a perfect world we sign a veteran OL, HB, TE, and role with other positions of need in the draft. Its definitely possible with cuts and restructures of current players on the team. But either way, we have plenty of options this upcoming draft. 

For top 5 offense he doesnt need anything else right now. His scheme alone will make us a top 10 easily. Top 5 or better we need a RB, because Gurley is a FA. We could upgrade LG through FA or draft. Not a high paid FA or a High pick in the draft. Maybe another TE, but nothing special.

LG, RB, and creativity.

Yall might be surprised how much more efficient they will be with a different scheme and approach. 

Firing Dirk Koetter was addition by subtraction.

  • A healthy Julio Jones (considering he's not traded)
  • Matt Ryan gelling with the new playbook (considering he's not traded)
  • A C and LG and o-line depth for the inevitable injuries
  • Definitely a starting quality running back and solid backup.
  • Minimal players out from COVID-19

Hopefully the vaccine will take care of the covid concern. Hopefully.

Time...

To coach it up (after installing) and getting the players here.

In addition, we could see a few positions being addressed; but not THAT much tweaking. More is needed on defense.

But...OL isn't 100% clear as of today and RB is where I'm looking in short-term.

Depth at WR and planning on life after Matt/Julio is a similar long-term look, but hopefully that is what we address in 2-3 years instead.

Agreed. Solid young RB, veteran LG preferably, and an hback type TE or vet as well, maybe Firsker thats a FA that was with him last year, and yeah there's no reason we shouldn't be
