Not only do we need a starting SAM backer, we need depth. There's no one there who can step in and spot start for us. As such, the roster dictates that we're an even front defense right now.

That being said, a nickel DE who can play OLB would be a great pick.

The starting OL is loosely set. But Carlisle (LG) and Barnes (RT) are one year stopgaps at this point. Grabbing replacements for one or both seems viable...especially when you consider there's no a single viable backup on the roster. OL is a significant need.

CB could definitely use an infusion of young talent.

A NT type to groom behind the starting DTs would be a very good idea, especially if we ever actually decide to run a 34. There's really not a NT on the roster. A lotta guys who'd look good as 34 DEs, but no one for the nose. Not unless we're trying to mimic Wade Philips.

RB is a major need. McFadden can't be counted on, and Jones is a complete unknown...other than his long history of injuries. You've got a cripple backing up a cripple. Wouldn't surprise me if Oakland's first pick was a RB.

...Or a TE. Oakland doesn't have a TE. They need a TE if they're going to run Knapp's offense. Don't be surprised if they grab one at #95 if a guy Reggie likes is there.

Don't discount a WR either.
pretty accurate. RM IMO needs to start with the D!!. OLB and DE would be the first two positions I would go after. Id also like a DT next. seymour isnt young and kelley is eeh, okay but need depth!!!!! we grabbed two young CBs last year no need to get more!!! we have also drafted a lot of OL the last few years. I would rather wait for next round of cuts after draft (still have Barksdale). A TE isnt going to put Raiders over the top plus Ausberry has been working with Palmer. RBs are a dime a dozen. Raiders should put all focus on front 7. The defense hasnt stopped the run in a decade. A nasty pass rush will help secondary. Lets face it we arent winning a superbowl this year so lets start building the team the right way. Defense, thats what wins championships!!!

GM, HC, OC and DC. Draft wise QB for sure, probably a LT or WR depending on who they let go for no reason. Bet Albert stays and Bowe goes. If both go...ugh

Where to begin for the Jets? Obviously OC and GM. Some scouts that can evaluate offensive talent for a change and not let guys like Alfred Morris, Daryl Richardson, and Bryce Brown go.

As far as the draft goes:

1. RB - Greene is in his contract year and Bilal Powell is not going to be a workhorse back. Crossing my fingers for Michael Dyer but if they passed on Bryce Brown I doubt it will happen unfortunately =(

2. OLB - While I'm shocked Bryan Thomas has been semi-productive this year considering his age and his late season injury last year, I highly doubt that he will be re-signed. Calvin Pace is also due a hefty roster bonus and may be let go as well. This is a HUGE need and fortunately it looks like a good pass-rushing crop.

3. OG - Slauson and Moore are both in contract years, and while I anticipate one of them (likely Slauson as he'd be cheap) will be resigned and possibly singing another in FA, if it isn't addressed it will need to be in the draft.

4. QB - Since Sanchez is almost guaranteed to be back in 2013 because of the guaranteed 8.5 mil, I wouldn't rule out drafting a QB in the 2nd or 3rd round. A good value pick like Aaron Murray would be perfect and could likely push for the starting gig right away. Just please don't sign Vick or trade for Alex Smith ffs

5. S - Yeremiah Bell and LaRon Landry were both given 1 year contracts and not expected back next year. Josh Bush is in the pipeline and will likely be the starting FS next year, and Antonio Allen is in line to be the sub-package safety possibly, but I haven't heard many good things about either day 3 selection thus far, so drafting a safety could be in order.

6. TE - Dustin Keller is in his contract year and not likely to be re-signed as he's been addled with injuries and even when he has been able to play he has not been very good. After Keller there really aren't any potential starting TEs on the roster with Cumberland, Reuland, and Smith so they will likely sign a TE (maybe Graham or Casey from Houston I believe both are in contract years) or draft one.


Depth issues: Pretty much every position, which is what happens when you trade away draft picks to move up (thanks for that legacy Tannenbaum smh)

Positions that the Jets will almost surely not take early in the draft:

1. DL - May take a dliner later in the draft as Devito will likely not be back next year but with Coples, Wilkerson, Ellis all drafted in the past 2 years and Pouha signed through 2014, it isn't a position they are likely to take day 1 or 2.

2. WR - Also lack some depth at the position but the first 3 are locked up for 2-3 years so highly doubt a day 1 or 2 WR selection, barring a Holmes trade which is highly unlikely due to his enormous contract.

3. ILB - Harris and Davis are the future at the position for the foreseeable future, and with Mauga and Bellore behind them it's a pretty safe bet they won't draft an ILB the entire draft let alone day 1 or 2.

Dallas


1st Round Worthy Needs:

1. OT

I really shouldn't have to expand on this because by now everyone is familiar with the abomination that is Doug Free. I don't know what happened with him but dude is done, 100% chance he's a cap casualty. Jeremy Parnell has looked pretty good in limited action, he's a young guy and the team may give him a shot at RT next year. That said, if a top tier OT is still on the board in Round 1 it should be the pick.

2. C/G

We're one of the worst running teams in the NFL and it has a lot to do with a lack of talent between the Tackles. Center has been a carousel for us lately and we could use stability there. Livings has been solid for us this year at LG but he's on the wrong side of 30 so you wonder when the drop off will occur, while Mackenzie has been spotty at RG. Our depth is meh and we could really use an injection of young talent along the interior. Warmack or Cooper would be great Round 1 options.

3. Safety

Draftniks have been linking Safeties to Dallas since the days Darren Woodson retired, and for good reason. We still don't have stable play back there. Sensabaugh is okay, but he's nothing to write home about and not much of a playmaker. Barry Church was our starting SS before tearing his achilles early in the year. Since his injury we have learned that Danny McCray should not be seeing significant minutes. We were linked to Barron last year so the team is interested in finding an upgrade, and this year that may be Eric Reid depending on how the board falls.


Secondary Needs:

1. RB

Demarco Murray is great when healthy but unfortunately the injury tag has followed him to the pros. When he's out we struggle to get much of anything out of our RBs. Felix Jones is in his contract year and he probably won't be back, I'd expect Dallas to be looking hard at RBs anywhere between Rounds 2-4.

2. 5-Tech

Jason Hatcher, Marcus Spears and Kenyon Coleman has been a solid rotation for us, but all those guys are on the wrong side of 30... and losing Coleman to injury has really hurt us on 1st and 2nd downs. We have some young guys the team likes, including last years 3rd Rounder Tyrone Crawford, but we should still be looking to inject more youth along the DLine. Maybe not a big enough need to use a 1st Rounder on, but still a fairly significant one.

The Anthony Spencer Watch:

Spencer was slapped with the Franchise Tag last off-season and has responded with a brilliant year, and arguably been our defensive MVP. I expect him to be retained, but he may want to test the market and then all bets are off. If he walks, OLB shoots up the list of needs. Just something to keep an eye on, it could drastically change our draft strategy.

Wish the Jets had cap space, could definitely use him! Not sure about their cap situations but cardinals, colts, and texans will likely covet him as well.

He'll never be the guy in the pass rush, but he wins enough to be a good complement. Plus, he has a knack for using the tomahawk and creating fumbles when he does get there, which is always a good thing. Where he really shines is in the run game, the guy is a stud at setting the edge. He's a classic SAM in the 3-4, not a sexy player but will be a dependable contributor for whatever defense he lines up for next year. I hope we can keep him.

I've actually thought about the Jets as a possible suitor, and I think it'd be a great fit. You guys have some young players inside that show promise and a good group of ILBs with Harris, Davis and Scott. You're just a couple OLBs away from having a top flight front 7. Spencer and a Damontre Moore/Dion Jordan combo would be sick.

Yeah, Thomas won't be back and we may cut Pace as he has a roster bonus due so a 1st round pick + FA signing at OLB seems to be in order. Doubt Damontre is there when the Jets pick we're likely looking at Okafor, Montgomery, and Mingo. Connor Barwin will likely be closer to our price range in the FA market though for the SAM spot.

I'm sick of every mock on here giving the Eagles Joeckel. We don't need an OT. The reason our OL sucks is because we are missing 4 STARTERS! Next year we have Peters, Mathis, Kelce, Watkins/Scott, Herremans. That is perfectly fine. No need for an OT. Our defense is horrible. I'd assume we switch to the 3-4 next year as we have the personel to do it. In that case I'd say our top needs are...

1. NT (Star)
2. 3-4 ILB (Te'o)
3. OLB (Jones)
4. CB (Milliner)
5. QB (If literally no one is there if Geno is there I guess we'd take him)

Please stop mocking us an OL though. As the only Eagle's fan on here (I think, haven't seen any others) I kind of just wanted to put this out there. Thanks.

LOLZZZZZzzzz.


did you try philadelphia eagles board?


I think there need is Qb first and foremost. You don't pass up on one, when you are picking top 5 or don't have one.

I really doubt they switch to the 3-4, but there is a chance, but highly unlikely. Since all the money they just spent, not namadi, would be a waste. Cox, Ryans, Kendricks, Curry, all would be terrible fits for the 3-4, Graham might make it. That is just the young guys, the older guys would have a much harder time.

I'm also surprised you didn't add S in there.

Don't discount a WR either.
1 year later and this defensive line that was supposed to have 6 viable starters has absolutely screwed up the season. The whole defense has gone to crap, but it starts with the line. Seymour has been hurt all year and even when he has been in, he and Kelly have absolutely no gap discipline. Desmond Bryant is okay as a 3rd or 4th rotational player but he hasn't filled in as a starter well.

They have no pass rush at all. It's pathetic.

And of course the Raiders' offensive line is awful.

To be honest, the Raiders' needs are too many to list and too important to rank. They have gaping holes at a half a dozen positions or more and could use strong upgrades at another half dozen.

Raiders needs in tier:

1st tier
DT
DE
CB
RT
CB
DT
OG
MLB

2nd tier
OG
MLB
OLB
TE
WR
RB

It would also be nice to have a franchise QB, but there isn't one in this draft.

And crap... That's depressing making that list.

Cox, Ryans, Kendricks, Curry, all would be terrible fits for the 3-4, Graham might make it. That is just the young guys, the older guys would have a much harder time.

I'm also surprised you didn't add S in there.
You're right about S, but there is no top 5 safety so I didn't include it (the list was just about round 1)

About the QB thing, I think Foles can develop. Personally I'm not high on Smith or Wilson, but things might change. Also with the 3-4 I don't see those guys as bad fits. KENDRICKS PLAYED 3-4 IN COLLEGE! Cox is a natural 3-4 DE, Ryans doesn't fit, and Curry should fit (but he's a backup anyways). The older guys I'm not too fussed about. Cole is the only player I'd feel bad about trading, but he could work. Who else is left? Jenkins played 3-4 his whole career so you keep him. Chaney played 3-4 in college as well. I'd feel fine cutting the rest. Are guys like Darryl Tapp really gonna make me not switch? The secondary wouldn't change in the 3-4 so I don't see why we wouldn't switch.

They have no pass rush at all. It's pathetic.

And of course the Raiders' offensive line is awful.

To be honest, the Raiders' needs are too many to list and too important to rank. They have gaping holes at a half a dozen positions or more and could use strong upgrades at another half dozen.

Raiders needs in tier:

1st tier
DT
DE
CB
RT
CB
DT
OG
MLB

2nd tier
OG
MLB
OLB
TE
WR
RB

It would also be nice to have a franchise QB, but there isn't one in this draft.

And crap... That's depressing making that list.
On the bright side, you don't need a kicker! :D

Dallas


1st Round Worthy Needs:

1. OT

I really shouldn't have to expand on this because by now everyone is familiar with the abomination that is Doug Free. I don't know what happened with him but dude is done, 100% chance he's a cap casualty. Jeremy Parnell has looked pretty good in limited action, he's a young guy and the team may give him a shot at RT next year. That said, if a top tier OT is still on the board in Round 1 it should be the pick.

2. C/G

We're one of the worst running teams in the NFL and it has a lot to do with a lack of talent between the Tackles. Center has been a carousel for us lately and we could use stability there. Livings has been solid for us this year at LG but he's on the wrong side of 30 so you wonder when the drop off will occur, while Mackenzie has been spotty at RG. Our depth is meh and we could really use an injection of young talent along the interior. Warmack or Cooper would be great Round 1 options.

3. Safety

Draftniks have been linking Safeties to Dallas since the days Darren Woodson retired, and for good reason. We still don't have stable play back there. Sensabaugh is okay, but he's nothing to write home about and not much of a playmaker. Barry Church was our starting SS before tearing his achilles early in the year. Since his injury we have learned that Danny McCray should not be seeing significant minutes. We were linked to Barron last year so the team is interested in finding an upgrade, and this year that may be Eric Reid depending on how the board falls.


Secondary Needs:

1. RB

Demarco Murray is great when healthy but unfortunately the injury tag has followed him to the pros. When he's out we struggle to get much of anything out of our RBs. Felix Jones is in his contract year and he probably won't be back, I'd expect Dallas to be looking hard at RBs anywhere between Rounds 2-4.

2. 5-Tech

Jason Hatcher, Marcus Spears and Kenyon Coleman has been a solid rotation for us, but all those guys are on the wrong side of 30... and losing Coleman to injury has really hurt us on 1st and 2nd downs. We have some young guys the team likes, including last years 3rd Rounder Tyrone Crawford, but we should still be looking to inject more youth along the DLine. Maybe not a big enough need to use a 1st Rounder on, but still a fairly significant one.

The Anthony Spencer Watch:

Spencer was slapped with the Franchise Tag last off-season and has responded with a brilliant year, and arguably been our defensive MVP. I expect him to be retained, but he may want to test the market and then all bets are off. If he walks, OLB shoots up the list of needs. Just something to keep an eye on, it could drastically change our draft strategy.



EDIT: And given what happened with Josh Brent this weekend, NT now belongs on this list.

Boom. This. Maybe a RT if Vollmer leaves and the staff doesn't think Cannon can handle it full time.

I'd argue that cornerback/free safety is also a concern depending on where McCourty lines up. At this point, I wouldn't suggest re-signing Aqib Talib or Patrick Chung.

In the 2009 season Jenkins returned as a starting defensive end because the Packers had switched from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense.
He started playing for GB in 2004.

On Kendricks
Quote:
played inside at Cal last year, but will be moved outside by the Eagles and given an opportunity to win the starting strong-side linebacker job as a rookie.
He is to small to play on the inside for a NFL 3-4.

Lets wait and see if they switch.

The Jets have needs all over the place. It's goig to be interesting to follow this offseason since hopefully the GM Tannenbaum is let go and Ryan may not be back either. With a new GM at least I think it makes a new quarterback more likely, and if Ryan isn't brought back a new quarterback is probably a lock. Plus if Ryan isn't brought back there's potentially going to be a new defensive system in place. But for now, position by position:

QB - Obviously an upgrade is needed at this spot. Time will tell whether or not it actually happens, but this is a first round need. May get addressed in the second round or ignored, but hopefully they bring in somebody.

RB - Shonn Greene is a free agent, and an upgrade is needed anyway. Bilal Powell has been getting mixed in but is really more backup material. Could get addressed in the first two days (which will be a common theme here). Jets could use a player to build the offense around, maybe they go for a RB, I don't see it in the first round with this class though. The Jets could also use some explosiveness on offense and it would be nice at the RB position. A guy who can catch the ball out of the backfield would be welcomed as well since they missed that with Greene.

FB - No FB is signed to be on the roster next year. Depends what kind of offense they'd like to run, really. Personally I'd like to see more two TE sets and three WR sets (particularly the three WR sets with Kerley being one of the offense's better players), but they could address this on day three if they want it to be a big part of the offense. Burned a pick on John Conner a few years ago.

WR - This probably either gets addressed early or not at all. Holmes has obviously had his issues, but is a good receiver who will be on the team next year in all likelihood since his cap/dead money figures kind of dictate they need to bring him back. Hill is physically talented, but raw and struggles catching the ball. Schilens hasn't done anything. Kerley is a really good slot receiver, but probably shouldn't be starting as an outside receiver. Could make sense if there's a great value at WR to go Holmes - rookie - Kerley - Hill, then cut Holmes and hope you can go rookie - Hill - Kerley, but I don't think it's likely. A possibility if they stick with the current QB's, but I hope they don't do that. Overblown as a need with all of the injuries at the position this year and how terrible the QB play is.

TE - Keller is a free agent. Has been dinged up a lot, so his value on the FA market may not be too high. Could see him coming back on a one year prove it deal. If not and they don't bring in somebody in free agency, could be a day 2 or early day 3 position. Would be good to bring someone in who can catch and block as over the last few years they've really only had guys who can do one or the other which makes it easier to determine run/pass based on substitution patterns.

OT - Brick will be starting at left tackle. Austin Howard has been okay at right tackle, but could be upgraded. If they don't bring in a FA could be addressed anywhere in the draft and I wouldn't be surprised, but will likely need to be ignored for a year with how many other needs there are.

G - Both Moore and Slauson are FA's after the season. Vlad Ducasse is currently being groomed to start next season which could be a horrifying adventure, and they tend to talk up Caleb Schlauderaff a bunch too. A possibility pretty much anywhere in the draft and depth at the very least will be needed, but more likely they either use stopgaps currently on the roster or bring in an FA.

C - Mangold's more than fine, could use an actual backup instead of continually trying to convert guards. Late day 3 possibility, nothing more.

DE - If the Jets stick with the 3-4/hybrid scheme, they're pretty much set here. If they move to a 4-3, could use a pass rushing DE.

DT - Pretty much set here regardless of scheme.

OLB - If the Jets stick with the 3-4/hybrid scheme, they'll likely need two new starters here since Bryan Thomas is a FA unlikely to be brought back and Calvin Pace will be cut with his high cap number. Could bring in someone in FA but don't have much money to spend, or bring back one of those guys as a stopgap. Day 1/2 need, possibly multiple times. If they move to a 4-3, could use a third starting linebacker to go with Harris and Davis. Probably a SLB type, day 2 or early day 3 with all the other needs although if they feel a Jarvis Jones, Anthony Barr, or Dion Jordan is worth it I could see going that way in round 1 as a pass rushing 4-3 LB.

ILB - If they stick with the 3-4/hybrid this position is fine. If they go to a 4-3 they could probably bring in a MLB and move Harris to SLB, but that seems unlikely to me.

CB - Too much money and high draft picks invested in the position to do anything high in the draft. Could always see going this way on day 3 to add depth though. Never can have too many.

S - Both Landry and Bell are FA's. Not sure they'll be able to bring either back, but might want to bring Landry back. Possibly a need to bring in two starters but with all the other needs I can't see this addressed any earlier than round 3, and even that seems early. Drafted a couple of guys in rounds 6 and 7 last year who have gotten some burn and they may want to give a shot to start this year.

K - Folk is a FA, so always a possibility late but seems more likely they go the FA route here.

P - Malone has been alright and is on the roster for next year. A possibility but probably more of a luxury than they can afford, though with how the offense is a weapon like a good punter would be nice. Still more likely a stand pat/FA position.

Cleveland:

First round:

Right defensive end. - if we address this I think our defense takes a significant step. It's a big need since Frostee Rucker is a depth guy, not a starter.

Corner - if mockers feel that there is a legit #2 starting CB where we are slotted, you cant go wrong. Haden's elite but Skrine is a terrible starter.

Free safety - again, Usama Young isn't God awful but I don't like him as a starter. Its a significant need and moreover, if you think there's a legit center fielder worthy of our slot, make it happen.

If somehow we we win out and end upon the middle, we need a mailing guard a la Chance.

Those are the pressing needs. Weeden is average at best I think we wait to replace him.

Are you guys still running a 3-4? And how's D'Qwell Jackson doing for you? I loved him out of Maryland.

^ Agree completely. More specifically, PASS RUSH (although its been alot better of late). And Strong Safety since it seems like we're hitched to Mike Griffin for a bit.
