    Rate our position needs.

    I was wondering what everyone ranks our needs as?

    Personally I see it as:
    QB - no starter currently
    DE - One open position currently
    DT - I believe only Ryan is a starter caliber currently
    WR - We don't have a true #1 YET* I believe in Gibson and Robinson
    OLB - We are still weak at this position
    OT - We gotta replace Barron
    RB - Just need a change of pace back
    TE - help wanted
    CB - I believe we have 1 CB and 3 nickel backs
    S (assuming we keep OJ)

    I would almost place DL and WR as being equal. I fear for Bradford (if thats our guy) if we don't have Wr's who can get open. In which case I would prefer to address this sooner. I do believe that our DL is weak and the LB's behind it are not strong, so if we don't go QB #1 I would prefer to beef up the D.

    Re: Rate our position needs.

    QB--Obviously
    DE--Aside from Long, we need a Little replacement, and need to get going on a pass rush
    TE--I like Fells, but there's no question we need someone else
    RB--Desperately need a two-back system
    DT--I think we can manage with what we have right now, If value presents itself in the 2nd I wouldn't be opposed to upgrading
    OT--Barron upgrade and/or Barron replacement
    CB
    OLB
    WR--I prefer to wait till next year, give us more of a feel for the young crew we have right now

    Interesting ranking. It appears you have bought into the ground and pound system! Big on D too! I think Spags will agree with you!

    Re: Rate our position needs.

    QB - trumps every other position automatically
    DE - we really have nothing but depth at right end, we badly need to add a pass rusher here
    OLB - vobora/diggs is ok at sam, absolutely nobody of interest on the weak side that i know of
    TE - nothing much here but depth either..
    RB - when steven jackson went out of the game, our offense did nothing. he's carrying too much of the load, we need a better second option here.
    G - again, good veteran depth but we need some youth/talent here
    OT - ditto
    WR - no proven #1, though i like these guys and we certainly don't need to draft another #2. these guys are all young and talented and we need to let them develop and see where they're at, unless someone eye-popping is available or we like a guy in the mid-late rounds this is a spot where we can let competition take over and see where they're at next year.
    S - butler is solid, nothing special
    CB - maybe i'm alone here but i like bartell and saw enough out of fletcher to give him a shot. we added dockery and have some young corners to compete at nickel/dime, but could still use some help here.

    I think at this point, we are imagining things if we think we are going to be successful any other way (i.e. Greatest Show), we need to do our best to try to compile a top 5 D within the next two years (easier said than done), grab another RB, avoid mistakes from the QB position, and pound the ball on the ground, i.e. Ravens, Jets

    If we don't proceed via this method, I don't see things changing for quite some time.
