Raiders

The #1 need is obviously a QB at this point. They just won't be drafting one. But, it's definitely need number one.

O-line. They may ride this Bruce Campbell at RG thing for a year or two, but I can't imagine him being the answer there. Center is obviously a point of concern. RT is okay, provided Walker re-signs. Depth at tackle is non-existent, though. Depth at guard is weak. There isn't even a backup center on the roster. An O-line heavy draft would not only make sense but please just about everyone.

WR is pretty bad. Doesn't make any sense to add another rookie to the group unless he's on that Dez Bryant/Mike Williams (Bucs) level. An immediate contributor or nothing at all should be the mindset here.

CB is always a concern for such a man heavy defense. Nnam may walk after the season, and Chris Johnson is not that good. Ware and McFadden should in no way be counted on to start any time soon.

Weakside LB is aptly named in Oakland. Weak position here. Their best WILL is their backup SS.

FB: Reece is a good player, but he's not going to do you any good in short yardage.

A pass rush specialist DE
wouldn't hurt. Scott's ACL tear could derail him for quite a while, and he wasn't exactly setting the league on fire this season anyway. Quentin Groves will get a look here, but I don't expect much.

A developmental DT would be a smart play. Remains to be seen whether or not Seymour walks or not. If he does, DT jumps into the top 3...unless they kick Houston inside, which would in turn move DE into the top 3.

Patriots
Needs
OFFENSIVE TACKLE - The Patriots need an OT - either LT or RT (with Vollmer moving back to LT) to replace Matt Light. Light has always been overrated, but he's really struggled this year.

CENTER - Dan Koppen is one of the best in the NFL at making adjustments at the line and directing the OL, but he doesn't hold up well against NTs and interior pass rushers. The negative with Koppen is starting to outweigh the positive as he gets older and less-able to mask deficiencies.

RECEIVER - The Patriots need a big WR who can stretch the field and keep defenses honest.

OUTSIDE LINEBACKER - The Patriots seem to have struck gold with Jermaine Cunningham, who has quickly been able to turn into a 3-down OLB (amazing for a rookie in that defense). Now they need another one to play on the other side and improve their depth at OLB.

RUNNINGBACK - The Law Firm has been really good the last few weeks, and Danny Woodhead is retiring Kevin Faulk, but RB is still a need. They need a third RB to bring depth and expound upon their current group's versatility. There are plenty of RBs in the upcoming class that would fit really well into what the Pats need at the position.

Other Considerations
DEFENSIVE LINE - DL is certainly an option for the Pats, but only because this draft is so loaded with good 3-4 DL prospects. The Pats' DL has looked really good. Mike Wright is playing like a Pro Bowl DE, the young guys are stepping up and developing, Wilfork is Wilfork, Gerrard Warren has been a monster at times, and they're getting Ty Warren back next year.

SECONDARY - Sure, the Pats could use some CB help right now, but when Leigh Bodden's healthy... Across from McCourty with Arrington, Butler, and Wilhite providing the depth?! I mean I wouldn't rule out drafting a DB because Belichick loves drafting them, but...sheesh...that's quite the group with McGowan coming back at safety as well.

OFFENSIVE GUARD - Connelly has stepped up huge at RG, and I just get the feeling that Mankins will stay. Actually getting on the field and playing is huge for him, and I think everyone involved will stop being stupid and reconcile their differences to get something done. The Pats have invested heavily in developmental players at this position...

QUARTERBACK - This will be a good draft for the Patriots to invest a solid pick on a good QB prospect. Colin Kaepernick, Pat Devlin, hell...Jake Locker if **** really hits the fan. Much like the Packers drafting Aaron Rodgers. Favre was 35. Brady's 33.

Browns

1. #1 Wide Receiver. This does not just mean a wide receiver. They need a true #1. They have a likely #2 and a bunch of #3's already.

2. Front 7 - Basically anything that is not a nose tackle. Pass rusher, defensive end, and inside linebackers are all in need of upgrades.

3. Right tackle - A long term solution at right tackle would really help. St. Clair sucks and Pashos may never be right again.

4. After this, it's kind of a hodgepodge... the Browns could use running back depth behind Hillis depending on how they feel about Hardesty's return from injury, offensive line depth and an eventual replacement for Eric Steinbach at left guard... could probably use a safety too.

3. A Wide Receiver. Browns have stubbornly stuck with Massqoui and Robiskie and that'll probably continue. Plus Cribbs has made great strides at this spot and helps the offense when on the field. But greater talent and depth needed.

4. Right tackle - A long term solution at right tackle would really help. St. Clair sucks and Pashos may never be right again.

Fixed. Not include CB? for shame.

Eagles:

LB - I know they'll probably never take a linebacker in the first round, but it's still their biggest need. They'll probably end up re-signing Bradley but I'm not sure if they'll bring Sims back and Fokou has been better than Jordan but I'm not sure how they feel about him long-term. I'm sure a lot of you don't even know some of these guys, but it's mostly always been that way under this regime so it'll probably stay the same. Other than Sims, who was a surprising acquisition, they seem to love home-grown mediocrity at the position; guys who can just do a little bit of everything, get to the passer and stand up the run (that part is a fail, almost always) without being a major liability in coverage.

RG/C - They'll probably end up rewarding McGlynn with a starting spot next year and it'll probably be at center if he develops a rapport with Vick this year. Jamaal Jackson will compete for a spot at guard but I'm not sure they bring back guys like Nick Cole and Max Jean-Gilles. Herremans is obviously locked in at LG. I don't doubt Reid finding a guy he likes within the first few rounds this year.

SS - I'm not sure what they do with Mikell, we really don't re-sign players on the wrong side of 30 but he's quietly been extremely solid for years now. I don't know if they'll want to put a rookie next to Allen in his second year, but they have definitely replenished certain positions in clusters through the draft in recent years and may do the same at safety with an obvious need looming.

RB - McCoy isn't a glass house but definitely isn't the most durable back in the league and will only wear down more while his career continues. The Eagles were able to get the great years they did out of Brian Westbrook because he was a committee back for the first 4 years of his career and still made an impact then. Unless they happen to bring Jerome Harrison back they really need to stop screwing around with excuses like Mike Bell and Tony Hunt and get a true bruiser back there. They'll probably use Leonard Weaver in that role next year to be honest, but McCoy still needs a back up.


There's not much of a need to name anymore positions, people can say we need a corner but Patterson has been great and is getting thrown at often with Samuel across from him. Hanson is the nickel corner for a few more years and Lindley will be groomed aswell. This team is actually pretty well stocked with talent and youth at every other position.

1.CB is a major need especially due to the fact Ellis Hobbs is contemplating retirement from the injury.

Cowboys

Where do start...

Oline: Gurode is getting old we"re gonna need a center. idk if Costa is the future.
Kosier is a FA and L.Davis hasn't been anything special. This line is just old we need future starters and depth.

DE- three or ours ends signed there one year tenders. Probably keep 2 of the 3. Could use an upgrade either way.

CB- Lack of depth and regression of Jenkins and Newmans getting old.

S- Do I really have to explain?

ILB- unless they are really gonna give Sean Lee a chance idk what he has. Plus Brookings is getting up there and might not be back. James isn't getting any younger either.

wild card- wr, roy will probably be gone. Wish we would have kept Crayton. Maybe if Ogletree shows something we won't need this.

This team just needs to start stocking up on young talent.

Redskins: It wouldn't surprise me to see any of these positions drafted in round one or two.

Primary Needs - This position needs to be upgraded and it has no young prospects to fill in.

3-4 NT - Maake Kemoeatu is over 30 and not making a noticeable impact at this position. They team has no young prospects here. If the team is serious about a change to the 3-4, it would be a good idea to grab the NT for the future.

Deep threat WR - Santana Moss is a free agent at the end of the year. He should be back, but the team has no depth past Anthony Armstrong. It is a longshot to see Malcolm Kelly healthy! Shanahan's offense is based on the long ball so keep that in mind.

Secondary Needs This position could be upgraded or it needs a young prospect to fill in sooner than later.

QB: They need a QB prospect that could sit under McNabb for a year . Don't rule out out Mallett, Jake Locker, Cam Newton if they are available. Shanahan loves big arms.

ZBS Center: Casey Rabach has struggled for the past couple years. Will Montgomery might be able to fill in for the future here, but he is currently playing guard.

ZBS OG - Derrick Dockery has fallen out of favor with the coaching staff and might not be back next year. Artis Hicks has been replaced by Will Montgomery.

3-4 OLB: Brian Orakpo could use a partner across him. Lorenzo Alexander has been a nice story, but he has been struggling as of late.

3-4 Defensive End: Albert Haynesworth has actually made an impact in a couple of recent games. But who knows with this drama queen. He is likely gone, and the rest of the crew is below average to put it nicely. Jeremy Jarmon is a young prospect at this position trying to return from injury.

The Broncos could use reinforcements at every position, with the exception of WR and possibly OT/TE.

DL - Number one need and it's not even close. We have nobody that could even be considered adequate.

CB - Bailey's best years are behind him and Goodman is injury-prone and mediocre. Cox could be decent starter if teamed with a true shutdown corner. Thompson seems like a possible nickel, but likely a dime.

ILB - DJ is decent, but will likely miss a few games due to suspension to start the season. Nobody else on this roster could be considered a worthy starter here. Woodyard, Mays and Haggan are all serviceable backups/special-teamers.

OLB - Doom is coming back from a significant injury, so it's hard to expect major production immediately. Ayers has shown signs this year, but there is no depth to speak of. You can never have enough pass-rushers.

QB - If McDaniels is fired (hopefully) Tebow will likely not be viewed as the QB of the future. Orton is a decent stop-gap, but I agree with the notion that he will likely be traded. Quinn is a backup. We need a true franchise signal-caller.

S - Dawkins is finally coming down to Earth and Hill is serviceable at best. McBath is solid and might be able to win a starting job, but Bruton is more of a backup and special-teamer. That leaves one safety position in dire need of an upgrade.

OG - Kuper is OK and Beadles might one day be a decent starter, but there is no difference-makers or depth here. Hochstein needs to go.

RB - We need somebody to pair with Moreno. He has shown he is neither durable nor talented enough to handle a full workload. A big bruiser (like Hillis) would be ideal.

For sure we need help at TE. Graham has declined noticably and Quinn is looking like a bust.

We must get DL that can disrupt and collapse the pocket. The lack of any pass rush from the DL is painful to watch. #1 priority in the draft, no question about it.

We should assume we lose Champ in the offseason via trade and that Nate Jones gets cut. So we definitely need at least one new CB.

I think Mays is actually a better fit as a 3-4 ILB than DJ is... it's just DJ is a better talent. I'd put this as my #3 priority for the draft.

Agreed. A situational pass rusher from the OLB spot is a very important addition this offseason. Probably my #2 priority.

There's no point in giving up on an untried commodity. I think this is one area where we need to see what we have before passing judgement.

McBath can definitely be our centerfielder, but he's always hurt. Dawkins is playing like a piece of **** now, and Hill has been pretty weak at times as well. We need help here, but this is a weak draft to be looking for a safety.

Quote:
OG - Kuper is OK and Beadles might one day be a decent starter, but there is no difference-makers or depth here. Hochstein needs to go.
Maybe a late-round flier on an interior OL... we've got a lot of young guys we need to evaluate before bringing in yet another rookie OG.

Stop torturing yourself about Hillis. But I agree, a power back would be a nice addition... just keep in mind that they need to be able to block as well as run, or McD won't take a second look at them.

Good points all-around. I hadn't really given TE a lot of thought, but you're right, we do need a stud there. I just don't want to spend anything close to a high draft pick on one considering the amount of reinforcements needed on defense.

And I agree, I would like to see Tebow in action before passing judgment. I just have a hunch that he will never be a legit NFL passer. Maybe he could be the TE we need ;) haha

Default Buffalo Bills...

Buffalo's top five needs IMO.
1 - Franchise QB - Fitzy is gritty and fun to watch, but is he the long term answer? Most likely not, although he offers the option of developement for whomever is brought in. Mobility is a key in Gailey's system. Luck, Locker, Newton??
2 - Tight End - The tight end situation in Buffalo is horrible, and has been less noticable than it should be with the recievers playing as well as they have been this year. Martin is a decent back up, Stupar is... A street walker, and Nelson has not lived up to the potential by any means. Bills TE's last season: 23 catches, 1 TD, pathetic... A vertical threat would do wonders, someone who can just be a threat in the passing game is welcome, blocking is like the icing on the cake. Kyle Rudolph.
3a - Mike ILB - Posluszny is a good Will ILB, but a true "thumper" inside is needed, someone who can fight off blocks, and help with the run game. Small LB's in general need not apply, see Coach/GM talk #1, paragraph 18.
3b - Right Tackle/Left Tackle - Mansfield Wrotto has held his own so far, and Cordaro Howard has flashed some potential, but neither really gets the needed push in the run game, so a run blocking right tackle would be a upgrade. At LT, Bell has progressed as the season has gone on in pass-pro, although he still needs to get stronger, and has limited impact in the running game. Demarcus Love, Derrek Sherrod, Gabe Carimi???
[b]Edit: After watching Jarred Allen absolutely abuse D. Bell all afternoon in the Vikings game, LT is a need as well unless Wang comes in and sets the world on fire. Bell still can not get a push in the run game.
5 - Strong Side OLB - Kelsey is out of position and out of scheme, Torbor is a good spot starter, and provides depth on the weak side, Moats, Coleman, and Maybin also are jack/weak side types. A true #1 "Sam" type who can get after the QB is needed, some one like Merriman minus the injury issue's. Robert Quinn, Justin Houston?? Edit: with Merriman signing a 2 year deal, is this still a need? Given his injury history, YES... Still need #2? So it becomes need 5...

Other Concern
Cornerback - Mcgee is 30 and his injuries are becoming "nagging" and "lingering". McKelvin is coming off a broken leg, and has had ups and downs. Florence has been solid, but IMO is not a true #1, and is a solid depth player. Corner is a good dime guy, and Youboty I just dont see on the team next year. Patrick Peterson, or Prince??

Little or no need
Safety - Byrd is adapting to a system he has never played in, Whitner gets more heat than he should, and is picking things up, although he may leave in FA. Wilson should be a starter, and could be elsewhere, and Scott could start else where. A late round replacement to develop if Whitner leaves is a possibility.
Running Back - Maybe a depth guy, but with Spiller and Jackson in place the need is not there.
Wide Receiver - Lee Evans is earning some of his money making an occasional catch, and dictating coverage, S. Johnson despite his mental lapses, is playing like he did at Kentucky and has been solid, Parrish was a playmaker, and chain mover before the injury out of the slot, Nelson has stepped up and made plays, as has Donald Jones in the 4 and 5 reciever sets, Norman Roosevelt was just activated to the active roster, and they drafted Easley in the 4th round last year. Unless they trade Evans, no need, even then its still a team strength.

But the Bills can not stop the run, they need D-line!!- While true, there was only one piece of the D-line with 3-4 experience heading into the season, Dwan Edwards, everyone else is 4-3 or college conversion types. Its gonna take some time... Troup was drafted in the second round last year to play NT, and Carrington in the third as a 5 tech both have flashed upside, D. Edwards is a solid starter at the 3 tech, very good depth player at worst. Stroud is just about useless IMO, but could provide depth with Spencer Johnson. Kyle Williams is a pro-bowl player regardless of where he plays, strong enough to hold up against the run, and a whirling dervish of knives rushing the passer, IMO some depth behind Troup is needed, maybe a developmental/replacement for Stroud, but for the most part the line is young, or in place. Poor linebacker play also comes into the picture in stopping the run. A franchise caliber defensive lineman is a possibility, but not the priority IMO most are making it out to be.

Baltimore Ravens:

1. DE: Ngata is a monster, and a DE would be put in a situation to succeed with all the attention going to the other side with Ngata and Suggs.

2. ILB: Ray Lewis is in his last years, and he has no one to groom for the future at the MLB position.

3 - tied. WR (Preferably a deep threat): The team has great posession WR's, but no one to stretch the field. And even those possession WR's may not return the next season with the exception of Boldin. The team needs some youth at the position to have someone grow with Flacco.

3 - tied: CB: The team has CB's with good #2 potential (Foxworth, Webb, Wilson, and maybe even Carr), but a #1 would really solidify the secondary.

CB is far and away the #1 need for the Ravens at this point. It isn't even close. Yes, youth in the WR core and along the defensive line would be nice, but at this point the secondary has become a legitimate threat to an otherwise championship caliber team. We need to invest a premium pick in a corner, and it needs to happen now.

I could definitely see how you can make that argument, but if CB is #1A, than DE is 1B.

The lack of a consistent pass-rush is also a reason a championship team could be held back. Redding has slightly improved (which isn't saying much), but he got gashed in the running game for most of the season.
Ngata and Suggs would be unstoppable if there was a DE on the other demanding some attention.

Other than Lewis, who isn't elite anymore our ILB's are also getting shredded in all aspects. Ellerbee is the only one with some talent, but he doesn't play very smart, and is in the doghouse because of it.

The lack of a #1 CB is definitely a problem but our secondary isn't the only weakness on the defense. We still have some good young CB's, but absolutely no depth at the DE position.

With that being said though, I would have be very happy with Harris(if he fell somehow) or Williams in the first.

I agree with you to an extent, but I'd venture to say that its more the rest of our LBers then it is the talent alone the defensive line. Ngata/Cody, along with Redding and Art Jones is a halfway decent young core along the line, assuming Cody and Jones continue to develop and start to get some playing time. I think the Kindle injury hurt us more then people realize, as we really needed him to provide some pass rush on 3rd downs in place of Jarrett Johnson. Still, I think CB is by far our biggest need and Id be happy with Harris, Aaron Williams, and maybe even Jimmy Smith or Janoris Jenkins if the value was right.

Other than Smith, I'd be fine with any of those corners in the first.

1. Middle Linebacker or Weakside Linebacker.

It doesn't really matter which one because DeAndre Levy can play both positions, but he can only play one at a time. I personally think Levy was better on the outside, so I would lean towards middle linebacker being the bigger need. However, we just need talent at linebacker. We can figure out who plays which position later.

2. Right Guard and/or Center

Both Raiola and Peterman have been awful this year (Peterman a bit more so) and should be replaced. Jeff Backus and Rob Sims have been fantastic in pass protection and Gosder Cherilus looks like a switch might've been flipped, but Raiola and Peterman are getting abused almost every game.

3. Cornerback

I think both Alphonso Smith and Chris Houston have a future on this team, but neither are #1 cornerbacks. Smith has been a pleasant surprise since coming over from Denver and looks like he could be a good #2 corner in this league. Right now he's been asked to mostly cover the opposing team's #1 receiver and he hasn't been completely awful. Chris Houston has held his own against #2 receivers but would be a better fit as the nickle.

4. Defensive End

Vanden Bosch just signed a big contract and Cliff Avril is really reaping the benefits of playing with Ndamukong Suh, but you can never have enough defensive linemen in the NFL. Vanden Bosch is getting older and has battled injuries this year. An athletic, situational pass-rusher would be a great pick in the first four rounds.

5. Running Back

We need a compliment to Jahvid Best and Kevin Smith probably isn't the answer. Best has suffered some nagging injuries this year so a back who could take some of the load off his shoulders would be helpful.

6. Offensive Tackle

Backus has been great and the Lions cannot justify taking an offensive tackle early in the draft, but a depth and/or developmental guy is needed. Backus has started every single game since being drafted, but if he ever went down we have no one who could fill in for him. I also question if he will be able to sustain his current level of play for more than another season or two.
