-The line right now consists of Wake, Suh, Mitchell, and OV. Does Hickey and Tannenbaum look for a wider, bigger DT to counter Mitchell's poor play vs. the run last season? After all, he graded out negative 2 years straight now. Obviously Suh helps but still, don't get complacent
-LB now. Does Ellerbe get dumped after June 1? Is the priority finding a starting MLB? Misi isn't that guy.
-What's going on with the secondary? Who will start next to Reshad? Would like to see early picks spent there, if not on a LB
Ellerbee might simply get re-structured. 50/50. They can cut him, or keep him along with Misi/Jenkins.
McCain is a great get. Keep Jamar healthy, that gives us 3 legit CB's. Just need additional depth.
Aikens or Thomas "could" play Safety, but I'm sure they try to add one or two more. Might even bring Delmas back on the cheap.
I dunno about DL need. Still have Anthony Johnson, Shelby, Jordan, Fede and I think one other DT, Francis????
If they find a cheap one, sure, but not huge need.
Suh opens up EVERYONE. Wake, Mitchell, OV will never see a double. LBers will be free more, CB's/S don't have to cover as long, don't have to blitz as much, more in secondary, etc.
I "think" they go O heavy in the draft. WR x 2, OG, TE, and RB. Load up skill guys for Tanne. Wallace, Miller, Landry, Matthews, Sims all we got right now. Need 3-4 more weapons + 1 OL.
