matty72780 Posted March 14 Share Posted March 14 (edited) I’ll preface this by saying there is a ton of time between now and the draft, but let’s look at day 1 and see how this impacted our draft needs. Needs posted in no particular order. Pre-FA needs: Edge, LB, DT, DB, LG, WR, QB POST-Day 1-FA needs: Edge, DB (CB), LG, RT, WR With the signings of Elliss, Bates, Onyemata and Carter we’ve filled our needs for an upgrade at DT, LB & DB. Which is HUGE! With the signing of Heinicke it’s clear it’s Ridders job to lose and if he can’t hack it, Heinicke is a capable player to step in and compete at a high level. QB can be removed from an immediate need. If we let McGary walk, we have two huge holes at LG & RT. Matthews at LT is only getting older and we really only have one OL locked in for the future of the franchise and that’s Lindstrom. Despite needing an Edge rusher, another CB opposite of AJ and a capable WR2 (not including TEs) I’d say it’s looking more and more that our 8th pick with be OL. There is Paris Johnson, Broderick Jones & Peter Skoronski that should all be day 1 starters. Paris Johnson is the likely pick due to the fact he’ll be our day 1 starter at RT and the eventual replacement at LT when Matthews hangs the cleats up. None of these are sexy picks, but a good OL is necessary to offensive success and if the draft was today I don’t see how any other pick would make more sense.
