We exchanged a 41 for a 33 year old at QB.
We added Barber and Thomas at RB.
We added Rivera at RG.
We added Spears, Canty, and Ratliff at DE.
We added Ware and Burnett at LB.
We added Ferguson at DT.
We added Henry and Glenn at CB.
Now for your issues:
At WR we are getting Glenn, Key and Morgan back from injuries plus the young guys showed some flashes last year. No we did not draft or sign anybody, but which draft pick or FA would you trade?
We drafted Petitti, have Rogers coming back plus the additions of Rivera and getting Campbell back will help whoever plays RT.
[View Full Quote]We drafted Beriault and signed Reese, with improved CB play and some hope of a pass rush this again becomes a minor flaw.
We addressed EVERYTHING we had a hole at by either drafting someone, signing someone, or having an injured player coming back.
You can't have a pro bowler at every spot.
There was also no really good FA WRs, FS, or RTs out there, and NONE of those were as critical to fix in the draft as what we drafted.
NOW THAT WAS A MAGNIFICENT POST!!!

BZ can also stand for Blind Zebra as well.
I just would have added in the classic line of
