I'd honestly have DE as their top need. Then i'd probably go with WR, OLB and DT.

Depending how the draft goes my choices in order would probably be:

Ansah
Ogeltree
Ertz/Eifert
Keenan Allen
Datone Jones
Chase Thomas

There is a solid component of Seahawks fans that for whatever reason will always say that DE/WR is our #1 need from here to the end of time.

Ansah will likely be gone. But I have a hard time seeing a strict DE being selected in day 1 in the next 5 years. Not that Irvin is the guy to call off that search, but that DEs tend to grow on trees a bit.

Seattle's scheme is just weird as it pertains to DEs. We don't value much of the conventional attributes that make good 4-3 ends. So it doesn't follow that we will ever see a top 20 DE as someone that has the traits we want (outside of pass rush). It also means we get unnatural benefit and value from guys that other teams don't covet.

Even if DE is their top need, our scheme and fit don't require or benefit from taking a round 1 talent. Whether it's at LEO or at our 5. I agree we will take a DE. But it'll be a guy taken in the speed drafting rounds on Saturday that we never heard of.

This year is really deep at DE. Like a good 4-5 rounds deep. I wouldn't doubt for a second that there is a day 3 guy that they like empirically better than Ansah.

i think you should move WR up on the panther needs. there are only 2 threats on the outside in Olsen and Smith. Lafell disappears in games and Adams, Edwards, and Pilares are just nothing.

Jets need 2 guards and 2 safeties FYI. Not sure wr really classifies as a need just yet, relative to the other needs anyway. You can also add FB to the list as well we don't have one on the roster now with Conner in cincy and Hilliard a FA

You could even put OLB on the Falcons list. McClure is coming back so RG/C is lower on our list but wouldnt hurt for depth

This severely understates the horrible state of the OL. Luck was hit I think more than any other QB last year.

1a. OLB
1b. OL
DE
CB
S
WR

I don't agree NT is a need. We have Brandon McKinney and Josh Chapman coming back from injury.

OL and OLB are the two critical needs. Both guard spots and hopefully one OT.

No team "needs" a RB. Just draft a guy in the later rounds and plug him in. If he doesn't work out, move on to the next late-round guy or free agent.

If you have a poor running game, you can still win Super Bowls anyway. You could literally have the worst running game in the entire NFL and win a Super Bowl (2011 Giants).

IMHO our first 7 picks will be a combination of these 7 positions

-DE
-OLB (Pass Rushing Specialist for depth behind Aldon/Ahmad)
-CB
-S (Even if Goldson stays Whitner is a FA in 1 year, no proven depth)
-WR
-TE
-NT

K is a big need too but you can get these guys late in the draft or UDFA. Although i don't mind spending as high as a 3rd or 4th. We have our original picks, Carolina's 3rd, and probably will get a conditional 4th so these 7 picks will come in the first 4 rounds, and whenever our first 5th is.

Smaller depth needs include QB, OL, ILB (Larry Grant is a UFA). And possibly spending a luxury pick on a RB...Hunter and James are a solid RB duo for the future but if someone like Marcus Lattimore slips too far, he might be too good of a value to pass up.

The Steelers have one back under contract next year. They need a RB or three.

They can literally just sign a random free agent or two for small money and be fine.

All that matters in the NFL is passing offense and passing defense, and bare minimum competency in the running game on offense and defense.
