I wasn't going to post one, but I keep seeing first round Aaron Donalds to the Bears. Not gonna happen. The Bears have kept their private workouts of first rounders to safeties and corners. Their private DT workouts have all been second round and later guys. Lamarr Houston's natural position is undertackle. Ditto for Nate Collins and Jay Ratliff. I think they're actually not too bad off there. They just need a rotation guy. Now at corner and safety...they're bleeding.

Cincinnati Bengals Top Needs For The 2014 Draft

1. CB - Yes, they have 4 guys in Hall, Newman, Jones, and Kirkpatrick but nothing after and even when you break down each guy their are some concerns. Hall is coming off his second major injury, Newman is 35+ years old and will be lucky to have one more productive and healthy season in him, Jones is always one incident away from being out of the league, and Kirkpatrick hasn't proven that he can stay healthy or when healthy play up to being a quality starter. Adding Gilbert, Fuller, Dennard, or Verrett in the first round would really help ease the concerns at the position. Wouldn't be surprised even to see them double dip and take an Aaron Colvin or Dontae Johnson later on in the draft.

2. OT - Whitworth moving to Guard at the end of the year was a great move for the team. He is a solid Tackle but he isn't getting any younger and making the permanent to Guard makes sense for his career. They lost Anthony Collins and need another Tackle that can either be a starter this year or be groomed to step in next season.

3. QB - I want Andy Dalton to be the guy but he hasn't proven anything to this point in his career that shows he can take the next step and be a consistent QB. He has good games and he has really bad games. Competition isn't a bad thing and if you can add a Mettenberger or Murray to compete in the 3rd or 4th round then you do it.

4. DE - They have some players at the position in Dunlap, Gilberry, Hunt, and Geathers. However, Hunt isn't proven and Geathers isn't getting any younger and he is coming off an injury. Even though I have this position ranked at #4 I could see them taking a Defensive End as high as the 2nd round and I could also seem them taking the position as low as the 6th. Would love to land a Kareem Martin type guy that has the size and skills to help fill the void left by Michael Johnson. They need to keep the strength of the team, which is the Defensive Line, a strength.

5. C - Mike Pollak will likely be the starter and he played well as a Guard last year and has experience in College as a Center. He may play great but I wouldn't hesitate to add a guy at this spot and keep Pollak as the first guy off the bench on the interior line. He may have to start at Left Guard if Clint Boling isn't fully recovered from injury anyways. Trevor Robinson had a down year last year and TJ Johnson was a guy on the practice squad. How they feel about those two players will go a long way toward Center being a 2nd or 3rd round selection to possibly not taking one at all. Since I don't know how they feel, I am listed as my 5th need.

6. FB - I think they have to look at adding a Fullback if they want to be a run heavy team. Copeland, Prosch, or Millard would all be welcome additions to the team.

7. RB - A replacement for BJGE would be another welcome addition. I could see them looking at someone like Isaiah Crowell late in the draft.

8. WR/Returner - A speedy return man is another position that could use an upgrade. Brandon Tate is average, and if you can upgrade the return game then do it.

9. TE - A third Tight End to go with Gresham and Eifert is needed.

10. LB - They actually have some depth at this spot, but it is mostly unproven depth. I could see them adding a special teams addition in rounds 6 or 7 that could develop as a LB, someon like Denicos Allen.

Updated Browns needs:

1. QB. Even if the teams loves Hoyer, there needs to be someone in development.

2. RB. There's Tate and... Ogbonnaya. Need more. Tate's going to get hurt at some point, it's pretty much a guarantee. Draft-wise, it ranks below WR and CB, but as far as the roster goes it's a big need.

3. WR. There's Gordon, and a lot of slot guys, including Cameron and Hawkins. Little can't be counted on, though he won't be released. Need another starter to go with Gordon.

4. CB. Skrine's optimal role is as the nickel corner. With him and Poyer, the depth looks good, but a starter opposite Haden would be great.

5. ILB. Bringing in Dansby was great, but after him there's only Robinson and a bunch of unknown. A solid starting ILB to go next to Dansby in a 3-4, and help in sub packages is a need. ILB in the third or after is likely. Possibly end of 1/top of 2, but unlikely.

6. OT. Guard isn't a need, too many possibilities there. But bumping Schwartz inside and drafting a new starting RT is possible. Just not in the first couple rounds.

7. K. Yep.

8. FB. Signed Pressley, but need someone to compete with him.

Seahawks Needs:

Cornerback.

Might seem odd, but the secondary is the core of the defense and they'd probably prefer to try replace Byron Maxwell with a talented rookie than sign him to a big FA deal as his current contract expires.

Wide receiver.

They just spent a 2nd round pick on Paul Richardson, but that was whey they had Percy Harvin and as of today Percy is gone and Paul has now torn his left ACL for the second time. The only reason this isn't the number one need is because the offense did fine while not relying on Richardson for the majority of the season, but it can't be any lower because while it's not a WR-reliant offense, there is no question that this team needs to have some legitimate downfield threats who can catch contested battles and consistently win one-on-one matchups. Doug Baldwin does everything you could ask of a second receiver, but contested passes are not his forte and that's what the Seahawks need for their offense to get to the next level.

Offensive line.

Specifically tackle. Russell Okung's deal will expire soon and it's debatable whether he's worth a significant raise, which the market will likely offer him. Aside from that, pass-blocking has been consistently sub-par all season and if they're going to give Russell Wilson a huge contract, they need to protect that investment.

Any of the above three positions are worth using our first pick on. Other positional needs:

Running back.

Marshawn Lynch has hinted at retirement, and he'll be an "old" 29 next year. I hope he comes back for another season or two because I think he's still got game in him and his intensity is contagious and great for the team. But he's a bit of a question mark and Pete Carroll has a history of trying to keep a stable full of backs. But this is a team that wants power backs. I would be genuinely surprised if they drafted anyone under 210 lbs. Marshawn is actually the smallest back on the roster, listed at 215. I don't think Robert Turbin is suited to be a starter, although I could potentially see him in Seattle for a long time if he doesn't get starter-money offers elsewhere. He's a nice 3rd down back for his pass blocking and receiving, but just isn't dynamic enough to warrant 20 touches per game. I think Christine Michael could be a 1000-yard rusher and he flashes whenever they give him touches, but considering that he's relatively unproven and running backs are so important, the Seahawks could easily take Todd Gurley if he makes it to the end of the first due to injury, or surprise with the selection of a running back they like in the second or third. Whether they take one in the first couple of days or not, they will select one at some point.

Tight End.

Zach Miller is getting older and isn't really a big play threat, although he does everything well and will be the starter next season. Luke Willson is the big-play threat, but also has had some ugly drops. The Seahawks would likely be in play for a big-bodied jump ball specialist in the mid-to-late rounds. Miller's got the no. 1 job locked down for at least another season, but the Seahawks were struggling a little bit for depth when he went down this season.

Defensive tackle.

Jordan Hill played very well replacing an injured Brandon Mebane, but he was lost for the season as well. Injury concerns, Mebane's age, and the Seahawk's preference for heavy rotation along the defensive line means they'll be checking out the tackles, too.

Best available.

These positional needs are basically just tiebreakers when it comes down to it. The Seahawks tend to just take the prospect who is the most talented player on the board, so if you're doing a mock where you're trying to fit players with teams that need them, the Seahawks will be a good place to get rid of a prospect who has slid past his projected slot due to teams picking other players on a positional basis.

FIFY.

Dotson and Mankins are starting next year.

Getting better depth at CB would also be appreciated.

Upgrading both tackle and guard spots is the only way this franchise is going to dig it's way out of the misery it's been spinning its' wheels in. Any thought to the otherwise is foolish.

I don't know what you're talking about, Dotson is a very good o-linemen and has been our best player on the OL for the last three years. This season, he had to protect two atrocious quarterback (one who's a blind statue and the other who hallucinates pressure and likes to run around like a chicken) while working alongside Omameh.

Mankins was **** at the beginning, but he improved and was mostly decent. Not sure I'd keep him for $7M, but they already confirmed they're bringing him back. They like his leadership.

Also, changing 4 starting linemen out of 5 two years in a row is not a good way to build a line and will lead to what happened this season.

And you should have add Gilkey on the list of those who do not deserve a paycheck. Dude is the worst player in the NFL, any position included.

Colts:

1) Safety Landry sucks, Mike Adams is ok, but he's 33 and upgradeable.

2) OLB Mathis is coming off an achilles injury & old. Werner hasn't been anything special. Newsome has been good and we'll see where he goes. Walden has probably been our best OLB. Another guy who can replace Mathis, and push everyone else down the depth chart one spot would be great.

3) RT Cherilus didn't have a great year. In addition, his contract becomes prohibitively expensive two years from now, so getting a RT in rounds 2-4, so he can sit a year makes sense.

4) CB Davis is great. Toler is ok/good & on the last year of his contract. An early pick to replace him, or a later one to be cb #3/4 would be useful.

5) WR Wayne is definitely showing his age. Not sure what will happen with Nicks next year, so we need a reliable #2/3.

6) OL Our C/RG combination is a mystery. A guy who can be either as depth/competition is a lower priority, but worth spending a pick on.

7) RB The team knows what Richardson is. We have Bradshaw, Herron, & Tipton otherwise. A day 2 or 3 pick would be worth it.

8) ILB Freeman is good, D'Qwell Jackson is likely out in a year. This could be a first rounder if value at S, OLB, CB, RT isn't there.

Jaguars:

1. Right Tackle - A lot of people thought Pasztor would be sufficient here but he wasn't and got hurt again. There is nothing but garbage behind him. I think we go with a FA here since we need to add more vets to our offense, not more rookies.

2. Free Safety - This position is pretty bad. Our best player here is probably Evans and he's a backup at best. I'm really hoping for McCourty here as there is much here in the draft. We've got the cap space to throw out big contracts.

3. Tight End - Lewis has got to go and Harbor isn't anything to write home about. This is a spot where I think we sign a vet like Clay or Thomas and still get one fairly early. Maxx Williams with our 2nd round pick would be ideal if he's there.

4. Linebacker - Telvin Smith looks really good but we need a better OLB and depending how Poz comes back, we need a MLB too.

5. Defensive End/LEO - Clemons is 33 and while we have some solid depth here, we need a stud here. I expect us to use our first round pick on a d-lineman, possibly a LEO.

The exception is that the Raiders don't need to look for a QBotF.

I can't remember the last time the pass rush was not a problem for the Raiders.

This image is depressing:


The last time the Raiders had a guy with 10 sacks was almost 10 years ago (Derrick Burgess).

I wouldn't have them in that order. I think CB and DE are the bottom two on that list. I think there are enough guys at those two spots atm whereas MLB, Oline and FS can be significantly upgraded.

Keep an eye on DT and TE as well. I am not convinced that pot roast and Julius Thomas will be back. I have a feeling they might want more money that we are willing to pay (especially for Julius considering that he cant block and Elway is currently pissed at how soft the Broncos are/were). Virgil Green should stay as the primary blocking TE, but Tamme is useless now and if Julius goes we need someone that can catch (although FA is possibly a better spot to find someone).

I really can't argue with this.

I wouldn't hate seeing some sort of olineman addressed fairly early--RT, LG, I don't care. If it's a guard, I would rather have a LG (more mobile for pulling) so Jackson to be an in-line OG on the right side.

Also, the top 3 needs are in their own tier of "If these aren't addressed, the Raiders will not be successful."

Oakland can away with pretty much any other need (on its own of course). But if any one of those is not fixed, the Raiders are screwed

I think an all-around TE would be a major asset for the offense Kubiak is going to install. Julius is explosive but a) he fragile, b) he doesn't block and c) he's gone in FA anyway.

I'd put strengthening our offensive front (RT, TE, maybe an interior guy as well) as the top priority, followed by safety. The team seems to have a good handle on finding quality LBs late in the draft, so expect more of the same this time around. I expect another pass rusher (could be DE, DT or OLB) and a CB will also factor into the mix somewhere.

For the bucs

QB - By far our biggest need. Glennon isn't the answer. He is too sloppy with his foot work, questionable decision making, and he checks down to much.
O-line - EDS and Dotson are coming back. I do not know about Mankings, but an upgrade at guard and RT is a huge must. If we don't bring in Iupati or Bulaga then I can expect picks two and three will be addressing the line.
Pass Rusher - Pass rush is not as big as QB and O-line, but unless Michael Johnson steps up he will need to be replaced.
Safety - Both safety spots could be upgraded.

Running back and Cornerback are not needs. Fixin the o-line will improve the running game and Johnthan Banks is on the rise and Verner is solid.

Figured now would be a good time to update needs after free agency and less than a month from the draft.

Bengals

They are not looking for starters but these are positions that could use some depth and also look ahead to upcoming free agents.

1. Offensive Tackle - Do not need a starter but Whitworth is nearing mid 30's and is in the last year of his contract. Andre Smith is also going into the last year of his contract. Young talent needs brought in and I think that need fits with the first round talent at the spot. La'el Collins, Andrus Peat, and Ereck Flowers make a ton of sense.

2. Wide Receiver - Top 3 wide receivers all have one year remaining on their contracts. They also need some speed at the position. Players such as Devin Smith, Tyler Lockett, and Phillip Dorsett make sense.

3. Linebacker - This position could actually be argued as the top need with the questions surrounding Burfict coming off of surgery. Could use inside or outside linebacker depth.

4. Tight End - Tyler Eifert was injured all of last season and Jermaine Gresham is unlikely to be re-signed. Even if they add Housler in free agency I think a blocking tight end will be added in the mid rounds.

5. Cornerback - They have there top 4 in place but more depth is needed with Newman signing elsewhere. Also 3 of the top 4 are on the last year of their current contracts.

6. Defensive Tackle - Many people had this as the Bengals biggest need before free agency along with Defensive End. They have signed Michael Johnson at end and that allows Gilberry to play more Defensive Tackle like he has in the past. They also signed Pat Sims and Devon Still. I can see competition being drafted for the final spot on the D-line but I don't see a first round pick being used.

7. Defensive End - As mentioned, Michael Johnson was signed to a 4 year deal and will be the starter opposite of Carlos Dunlap. They have young talent in Hunt and Clarke they need to see what they have with them. Wallace Gilberry is a solid rotational player that can go back to that role. Wouldn't be surprised if they skip this position all together now.

8. Safety - Iloka and Nelson are quality starters at the position. They lost Taylor Mays so they will likely draft another Safety in the mid to late rounds.

Updated Titan needs:


RT. Currently no RT on the roster. Although, ex-Ram Barksdale was just in for a visit. If signed, he'd be our RT. Major hole that needs filed.

WR. Regardless who is playing QB, we need to find a WR1. Trading up for Justin Hunter in the 2nd was a bust. Kendall Wright is no more than a good slot. Harry Douglas is already 30. None of those guys scare defenders. We need that true elite WR, which is why we've had Cooper, White, Parker, DGB, & Perriman all in for private workouts.

OLB. We did re-sign Morgan & signed Orakpo, but depth is much needed. Kamerion Wimbley is awful and we really don't have much else than that. Orakpo has an injury filled past. Drafting a mid-round OLB would be clutch.

RB. Sankey (a 2nd rounder last year) was a disappointment, but Whiz has talked him up this off-season. Shonn Greene should be cut, and McCluster isn't anything special. We could really benefit from a multi-back system. Look for an early day 3 RB.

DL. We have decent depth throughout DE & NT. But besides Jurrel Casey any position could be upgraded. If a defensive lineman is our best player available at 'pick X' - we'd likely pull the trigger.

QB. Depends on what we do at #2. It's Mariota or no QB in this draft, IMO. We have too many draft needs to waste a Day 2 or 3 pick on a QB. If we go Leonard, we're handing the franchise off to Mettenberger for the year.

Those are the top-5, but still could see us going any other position as well. Holes everywhere! We need playmakers bottomline.
