Texans:

3-4 OLB: Other than Connor Barwin and maybe Mark Anderson, not much else
CB: Kareem Jackson had a rough year and their best corner Glover Quin may be moved to Safety
S: If Quin doesnt get moved, they dont have much other than depth/backups
3-4 DE: Mario Williams will be a staple on one side, not sure how Antonio Smith will work out on the other...
NT: Everyone says its a need but Wade Phillips says he likes what hes got
WR: Andre isnt getting any younger, Walter had a down year, and Jacoby still hasnt taken over the #2 job completely and his contract is up
T: Rumour has it backup Rashad Butler will like to walk, leaves nothing behind Brown or Winston
ILB: If Demeco doesnt come back healthy, there isnt much there after Cushing & Sharpton

Bears haven't been updated since Thanksgiving.

1. Two Offensive Tackles: Chris Williams was a bust, though I think he will be decent at guard. His replacement, Frank Omiyale is even worse. Seriously, one of the worst pass protectors in the league. He has to be replaced. J'Marcus Webb also needs to be replaced, but I have a feeling the coaching staff is going to give him more time.
2. Defensive Tackle: Tommie Harris is gone, leaving the Bears with Matt Toeaina and a bunch of backups. Even though it isn't as big a need as a left tackle, I think this is the way the Bears will go in the first round.
3. Possession Receiver: Devin Hester is good in the slot. And Johnny Knox is continuing to progress, but Jay Cutler needs something more than speedy 6'0 receivers.
4. Corner Back: Charles Tillman is still a serviceable corner, but he is quickly slowing down. I watched Hank Baskett (not exactly the fastest receiver in the game) chase him down after an interception after trailing by 15 yards. I actually like D.J. Moore, but the Bears could definitely use a new Nickel Back.
5. Interior Linemen: Like I said, I think Chris Williams will be okay at guard. But Robert Garza and Olin Kruetz are nearing the end of the line. I would love to see the Bears grab their replacements in round 4 or 5 and let them sit for a year.
6. Outside Linebacker: Briggs and Urlacher are great, but Chicago really needs another guy on the outside. Even though this isn't the biggest need, it would not shock me to see the Bears draft a guy like Akeem Ayers in round one if he happens to fall that far.

Lions haven't been updated in a couple months, and I have differing opinions than many...

#1) OLB
Many think Levy can or should move outside, but there aren't exactly any phenomenal MLB prospects this year, and the coaches love Levy's ability to direct the defense on the field. They have NO desire to move him if they don't have to. The coaching staff is looking for a particular type of OLB. Schwartz recently stated they want to run a scheme where the don't have a "weak" and "strong" side because they don't want the balance of the LOS to dictate the coverages and looks we run. They are looking for what essentially amounts to two SAM-type LBs on both sides of the field.

Peterson and Follett fit the mold, but Peterson is long gone after bailing on the locker room to save himself for FA, and Follett wasn't doing very well against the pass before his injury. Now he may not even be able to play the run that well anymore. Palmer showed the necessary aggression late ini the season, but it remains to be seen if he can pull it all together. The coaches appear to love Johnson's consistency and Carpenter's potential, but both made all their tackles downfield and showed little aggression to make impact plays. I'd love to see us draft two of these, but my gut tells me we'll only get one.
#2) CB
I feel this is less of a need than most people do, but that only assumes Houston returns. Houston and Smith are both #2 CBs but are perfectly fine as the starters if our OLBs were better at keeping QBs from throwing the underneath stuff. All year QBs could just dump it off to the drags or checkdowns when the pass rush got in their face, and since oftentimes those hot reads were WRs our CBs got the bad rep. But the true culprits were poor LB play. Nobody was worried about dumping the ball off and failing to get the first down.

When they did test Smith, he picked off 5 passes, and Houston wasn't tested hardly all year, which meant he was being respected. So if Houston returned we don't *NEED* a CB, but we still don't have a true #1, so if we have the chance to get one we have to. I believe Mayhew let Houston go to FA because of this. Not only did Houston desire to be a FA, Mayhew was willing to let him in case they had a shot at Peterson or Amukamara. If we have the chance to pick one of them up, we will, and we'll let Houston walk whenever FA starts. We have solid depth, to be honest. Vasher will make an excellent NB and Berry really made a big impression in his short time on the field.
#3) 3rd WR
We had horrible production from our supposed #3 WRs, who I'm not actually certain were ever on the field. Typically you expect a #3 to be a slot guy, but that's not what the coaches want. They want to use Burleson in the slot when we go three-wide, so they'll be looking for a legit edge guy who can stretch the secondary and give Burleson, Best, and Pettigrew/Scheffler room to move underneath. They'll essentially be looking for what normally counts as a #2 WR on most teams. If Julio Jones makes it out of the top 10 we very well may take him.
#4) Interior OL
Sims played very well, Raiola was his normal self [which is far better than most fans are willing to give him credit for], and Peterman played terribly while he was hurt. But as he finally healed in the last third of the season, our running game came to life and then we won 4 straight games. The OL finally coming together and playing as a unit was a big part of that, and that was without Cherilus.

The reason this is a need is because we have never had anyone to push Raiola and Peterman, and we have never had a legit backup at C. We *HAVE* to get a guy who can backup Raiola while pushing Peterman for playing time. So that means we need a guy with some serious skills, not just some development player.
#5) Versatile DL
This one was tough a couple months ago because another S to compete with Spievey was a big need, but then we signed Coleman. That's a big signing and takes us completely of needing one. That bumps up the need to keep the DL infused with talent. Mayhew and Co. are clearly trying to dominate the LOS like the Giants used to / sometimes still do. Avril, LoJack, and Young give us all we need for pure DE, and both Williams and Hill do the same at DE. We need a guy who can play inside and out on any down and add to the rotational dominance no matter what down it is. He would replace Fluellen on the roster. Early guys like Cameron Jordan and J.J. Watt would be perfect, and later guys like Cedric Thornton would also.

Center Scott Wells was fantastic in 2010 and is a lynchpin on that OL.
The team, staff, like LG Daryn Colledge a lot more than the Packer fans do, as is the case with Wells.

The Packers brass apparently really likes 23-year old Nick McDonald, from Grand Valley State. He might be counted on to be the LG if they let Colledge walk, which they don't want to. Also, TJ Lang might be capable of transitioning FT to LG.

Everyone agrees that another OT is needed soon for the aging Clifton, although Marshall Marshall Marshall Newhouse has some potential there. But he too might be best off at guard. That's why I don't even pencil guard or center as a top-6 need for this team.

Pure tackles.... draft two of them.

We are 31st in the NFL in sacks and 3rd down conversion % allowed. Simply put, we are horrible at putting pressure on the opposing team's QB.

Bowers (2 year starter, All ACC 1st team)
Quinn (2 year starter, 2009 All ACC 1st team)
Kerrigan (Co-Captain, 3 year starter, 2 time All BIG 10 1st team)
Aldon Smith (2 year starter, 2009 All-BIG 12 2nd team)
Jeremy Beal (3 year starter, 2009 All BIG 12 2nd team, 2010 1st team)
Romeus (2 year starter, 2009 All BIG EAST 1st team)

2.4-3 Outside Linebacker - Geno Hayes is still young, but is way too light and inconsistent. Who knows if we can count on him even if he were a better player, because of his off the field issues. Quincy Black has been on the team for awhile and is currently on IR. Not saying that he isn't supposed ot be back to 100% before the season starts, but I think we have seen enough from him to know he is average at best. Hayward is a career special teamer. Would like to see more of what Watson can do in the next 2 games, but still think we should look to upgrade here in the first 3 rounds of the draft. Our run defense is horrible, 29th in yards per game and dead last in yards per rush. UGGHH!!

Akeem Ayers (2 year starter, All PAC 10 1st team)
Bruce Carter (4 year starter, All ACC 2nd team)
Martez Wilson (2 year starter, All Big 10 1st team)
Greg Jones, MLB (4 year starter, 3 time All BIG 10 1st team)
Zach Brown (2 year starter)


3. Safety
- Tanard Jackson has pro bowl talent in a junkie's body. He's supposed to come back after week 2 or 3 next year, but who knows if he can get his crap together and help this team make a playoff run in 2011. Sean Jones has been a nice addition, but he has been caught out of position this year and isn't a ball hawk. Cody Grimm was a very nice diamond in the rough and really helped to improve our run defense. Love his heart, attitude and text book tackling. Corey "Hard Knocks" Lynch is more of a ball hawk than Jones, but is a 3rd stringer and it shows. Larry Asante has yet to be activated to my knowledge so I have no opinion on him, other than what I saw from him at Nebraska. He's supposedly a thumper but brings nothing else to the table. We need a ball hawking, play making free safety to play alongside Grimm in the future Bucs secondary, IMO. Grimm could be special at Strong.

Quenton Carter ( 2 year starter, All BIG 12 1st team)
Rahim Moore (3 year starter, 2 time All PAC 10 1st team)
Eric Hagg (3 year starter, All BIG 12 1st team)
Mark Barron (2 year starter, 2 time All SEC 1st team)
Ahmad Black (3 year starter, All SEC 1st team)

4. Offensive Line (other than LT)
- Lets be honest these guys have been overrated when healthy and now that they have been hit with the injury bug we get to see that we have been doing ok with their backups/rookies filling in. Joseph and Faine are supposed to be the most talented, instead they are the most overrated, IMO. Trueblood lost his spot to James Lee after an early season injury and only got it back after Lee suffered a 2nd quarter injury in the Detroit game. Trueblood looks like he should be a mauling run blocker, exactly what I would expect out of a RT, but he isn't. Larsen and Zuttah are young OL that we have that have done well filling in this year. Not sure about Lee. I could live with any highly rated OL being drafted early.

Gabe Carimi (4 year starter, 2 time All BIG 10 1st team)
John Moffitt (4 year starter, 2 time ALL BIG 10 1st team)
Marcus Cannon (3 year starter, 2 time ALL MWC 1st team)
Nate Solder (3 year starter, All BIG 12 1st team)
Derek Sherrod (3 year starter, All SEC 1st team)
Anthony Castonzo (4 year starter, 2 time All ACC 1st team, 2008 2nd team)

5. Run stopping DE - See above for complete DE analysis. We could very well take 2 DE's this draft, much like how we doubled up on WR and DTs in 2010. If the elite pass rushers are gone by the time our pick comes up (which is very likely) and if we choose not to trade up, I would not be upset if the BPA in the second round was a strong LE. Wouldn't want to draft one in the first, though.

Jared Crick (2 year starter, 2 time All BIG 12 1st team)
J.J. Watt (2 year starter, All BIG 10 1st team)
Pernell McPhee (2 year starter, 2009 All SEC 2nd team and 2010 1st team)

6. Change of pace RB - some speed for our Blount Force Trauma. Don't know if we don't already have that in Kareem Huggins (IR), but if the BPA in the middle to late rounds is a fast, pass catching RB then so be it.

DeMarco Murray
Noel Devine
Kendal Hunter
Shane Vereen


7. Big bruising FB
- Earnest Graham is not a true FB. Pretty sure Blount is bigger. lol

Owen Marecic

1. Check
2. Mason Foster in the third
3. Check
4. Incomplete
5. Check Clayborn in the first
6. Not really change of pace, Bradford is similar to Blount
7. Incomplete

Default Three errors prove costly in Indians’ loss

Three errors prove costly in Indians’ loss

The frist damaging error was a missed catch in center from rookie Ezequiel Carrera.

With two outs and runners on first and second base in the sixth inning, Masterson forced Chicago’s Adam Dunn to send a deep fly ball to center. Carrera turned and sprinted back, but got tripped up as he hit the warning track. By the time the young center fielder gathered himself, the ball was tailing away and it glanced off his glove for a critical gaffe.

The White Sox scored twice on the play to grab a 3-1 lead they would not relinquish.

Carrera, who is highly regarded for his defense, had trouble recalling the last time he dropped a similar fly ball.

Carrera said through an interpreter, "That type of ball, in a big situation like that,I can’t remember the last time. It doesn’t feel good."

Carrera was hardly the only culprit. Sure-handed shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera and catcher Carlos Santana each made an error in the seventh that led to another run for the White Sox. Cleveland’s offense managed only two runs on five hits over six innings against Edwin Jackson (7-7) before being quieted by Chicago’s bullpen.

The end result was another loss.

And a growing sense that the Indians need help from the outside Need new MLB Player .

Acta said. "It hasn’t been because of a lack of trying,We’re trying very hard to get the right guy in here, or guys for that matter."

PACKERS 2012 TEAM NEEDS

1.3-4 DE - Ryan Pickett is a solid starter but Neal has missed too much time and Wilson and Wynn aren't good enough.

2.3-4 OLB - Depending on how So'oto, Zombo and Walden do we could still be needing a consistent pass rush other than Clay Matthews.

3.OG - T.J Lang is a solid starter but we could improve on him.

4.ILB Depth - Bishop and Hawk are good but DJ Smith and Francois aren't worthy backups yet.

Thats it really and I think its a testament to Ted Thompson that I can only think of a few guys in this draft class that would come in and start.

pretty cut and dry right now what the Browns need:

mainly those three, but to a less urgent degree:

WLB
SLB
DE
FS
DT depth

Donkeys:

1 QB - obvious
2 OL - a center and either a LG or RT, depending on where o. franklin plays
3 DL - DE depth and a big-time DT
4 RB - we need a bell cow
5 CB - starter opposite bailey and possibly a nickel guy too

Chiefs

1. QB - Cassel sucks
2. OT - Barry Richardson sucks
3. RB - Thomas Jones will be done soon and Charles isn't an every down back
4. TE - Seems Moeaki is returning back to his injury prone ways
5. ILB - An upgrade at the thumper spot wouldn't hurt.
6. S - Could use better quality depth at both safety positions.
7. K - Succop seems really off.

Maybe
CB - If they can retain Carr, they should be fine at CB. If they can't, CB will be very high on the needs list.
NT - Gregg is washed up, so it'll depend if they think Powe can take ahold of the starting position or not.

For 2012:

Bears-

1: OL: We still need Guards, Center, and a Tackle. Cutler has been sacked close to 5 times a game so far in the 2011 season and it can be downright painful to watch the line do nothing in run blocking. Even though this is the number one need, I can see JA waiting until the second or third round to address it as he's been using first round picks on tackles with Chris Williams and Gabe Carimi.

2: WR: My god do we have anyone who will attack the ball? Dane Sanzenbacher seems to be a keeper. But we have no one who will go up and fight for the ball. The weapons around Cutler (not including Forte who is amazing) are simply not good enough to give him any confidence. And at the WR position Johnny Knox, Devin Hester, and Earl Bennet aren't cutting it.

3: CB: Ugh I wish I could put this position higher on the chart. Sadly even though this position has almost no talent in it, we can't afford to address it with a first or second round pick. We have been rotating Zach Bowman, Tim Jennings, and DJ Moore next to Charles Tillman the last few years, but none of them are more than stop gaps.

4: S- We might have a starter is Meriweather, but Major Wright is always getting hurt, and Chris Harris is nearing the end. Chris Conte was drafted last year, but beyond him there isn't much to get hopeful about at the position.

Packers:

1. 3-4 DE
2. 3-4 OLB
3. G/T depending on how Sherrod develops.

That's really it.

Rams needs: hmmm...where do I start...where do I start?

OFFENSE

1.) RT: Time to officially declare Jason Smith a bust. He got bencHed last game after letting Sam get smashed by everone he attempted to block.

2.) TE: We need a true, true TE who can block AND catch. Oh, and staying healthy would be nice also.

3.) WR: Rams need a legit No.1 guy to give Sam a go to weapon. He needs to be big enough to be a RZ threat and yet fast enough to stretch the field.

DEFENSE

4.) CB: With the injuries to Bartell and Jerome Murphy this position has become a real problem. We need a tough, physical corner who can play press D and yet run with the WR on the deep stuff.

5.) Safety: Q. Mikell has played well but we're getting nothing from the slugz who are attempting to replace Atogwe. Need to get a more athletic FS quickly.

6.) OLB: Yeah, I know that Mr. Spags doesn't value this position in his D but it is getting more and more obvious that signing 32 y/o SWBs ain't gonna cut it either. We need to get some real quality at this position sooner rather than later.

Well, that's quite a shopping list isn't it? Didn't even mention RB, QB DT but that is for another time...

So you're telling me the Rams don't need Andrew Luck after you made a thread about it?

If you would have read the thread I said that it is a topic of discussion among Rams fans. I.E. when we score the first overall pick what do we do with it...do we trade down or take Luck?

Also, the implicit question is which QB is going to be the more successful long-term. Right now there are some serious questions being raised about Sam. To wit: he is staring down his recievers, not going thru his progressions, showing little to no touch in the RZ among others flaws.

So, do we NEED Andrew Luck? This is the question that the Rams need to answer.

And this is why I started the thread to see what other NFL fans think...

Seahawks:

1. QB: Obviously. They like Josh Portis a lot, but I doubt they'll pin their hopes on him.

2. RB: Both Marshawn Lynch and Justin Forsett are free agents at the end of the season. Forsett is similar to Leon Washington in running style but his skills in blocking and receiving make me think that they'll keep him over Lynch. They need somebody to take the bulk of the carries.

3. CB: Marcus Trufant is still a solid player when he's healthy, but he's had multiple back injuries over his career and turns 31 on Christmas Day. They like Walter Thurmond, a fourth round pick in 2010, across from him, but Thurmond has also had some injuries and may not be good enough of a press corner to be a starter. Either way, Seattle could use a true lockdown corner.

4. DE: The team's two best pass rushers, Chris Clemons and Raheem Brock, will be 31 and 34 respectively next season and it's doubtful that they'll bring Brock back (again). Carroll likes the so-called "LEO" position in his defense (strict pass-rushing end. Players are often not much bigger than linebackers) but they could use somebody who's good against the run.

5. DT: Brandon Mebane is a solid and underrated player, but they have Alan Branch next to him. Both Branch and Mebane are much better against the run than the pass. The team could use a DT who could bring interior pressure on the opponent's QB.

6. OLB: Curry's days appear numbered and he's lost his starting role to rookie K.J. Wright who appears to be a solid all around LB. On the other side they have LeRoy Hill. Hill isn't all that old (turned 29 two weeks ago) and is a decent pass rusher, but he has a history of both injuries and domestic issues. They could use a really good pass rusher to help their pass defense.

7. WR: When he's healthy, Sidney Rice is really, really good. That said, he does have injury concerns. Mike Williams is also a good WR, but he fits a similar mold to Rice (slower guys who use their height and long arms to snatch the ball out of the air). The Seahawks could use a speedy receiver who can take the top off a defense and keep the opposing defense honest.

8. LG/C: They just signed Robert Gallery to a three year contract before the season, but Gallery is also injury prone and is 31 years old. Max Unger is younger and improving, but there are still questions about whether he can be a starting center in the NFL.

9. K: Not sure how much Pete Carroll and John Schneider actually like Steven Hauschka, but he probably should be replaced. If he continues to be reliable on FGs than he can stay, but it's worrying that he's had only one TB on nine kickoff attempts so far.

Going to try something a little different and predict what Belichick might see as the team's biggest areas of weakness rather than my personal evaluation:

New England Patriots

1. Safety

Was clearly not impressed with Brandon Meriweather. Patrick Chung is a key part of the defense and Sergio Brown has been better than expected but I think Brown and Barrett are better suited to reserve/rotational duty. Robert Lester could fit in a center-fielder role.

2. Center

Dan Koppen has really struggled against nose tackles for years, and now that he's on injured reserve at age 32, I think it could be the end of the line for him. It's possible Belichick likes Connolly or Wendell here, but was also rumored that he has been interested in Eric Wood and the Pounceys.

3. Defensive End

The pass rush has not been getting it done. If Belichick continues to run a lot of four-man fronts, he could take a pass rusher as high as the first round. He has historically passed due to the difficulty of projecting a 4-3 end to 3-4 linebacker, but that may not be a problem anymore.

4. Wide Receiver

Deion Branch and Wes Welker are free agents. I think both will be back, but it's possible Belichick decides to opt for a youth movement. Julian Edelman would presumably take the slot role. Branch may be seen as more of a rotational guy going forwards. Ochocinco has disappointed.

5. Outside Linebacker

In a 4-3, a strongside outside linebacker would be nice. Jerod Mayo can line up on the weakside, and Dane Fletcher/Brandon Spikes can share duties inside, but someone like Manti Te'o would be very welcome. A key here would be finding a player who is reliable in coverage.

Eagles:

LB: Any spot. We're done ignoring this position early in the draft. Chaney may be the future in the middle but we're still not sure he's an every down LB. Brian Rolle seems like a player but is undersized and again, probably not an every down guy. We went all in for a Superbowl run this season and our ignorance toward the LB position in the past is what is going to end up stopping us.

DT:

Cullen Jenkins was brought in but is on the wrong side of 30 and Patterson has been solid but unspectacular. Behind them there's not much to speak of for the future and D-line depth here is a must. Depending on Brandon Graham's status heading into next season DL in general may be need #2 but I'm optimistic Cole/Babin/Graham will be a strong top-3 for a few years.

G:

Not positive that they'd key in on G here. If Danny Watkins doesn't turn it around QUICK I don't know if they scrap that pick right away and add another guard, and they may need one even if his light does turn on. But if Mudd is still here they may look for later round gems. I know Will Rackley was a target this past draft and I'm not sure who's idea it was to just take Watkins in round one. So while guard may be one of our bigger needs I'm not sure we spend back to back first round picks on the position especially when the first one isn't working out. A long term LT may be targeted, or a RT to slide Herremans back inside. Again, not sure of the staff's thoughts here - if Herremans is our long-term RT or just necessary there for now because of our lack of talent at the position.
