2. Calais Campbell. Need I say more. Anyone saw the Cowboys Cardinals game can see why we need Campbell. We need a DE that can cause havoc. Everyone blames Spencer for not getting enough sacks, look at the good 3-4 defenses out there, and your see DEs that can get pressure and sacks. It doesn't need to be all the 3-4 OLBs. San Fran, Arizona, Baltimore, and Houston DEs all get pressure and sacks.
3. Paul Soliai would be nice for sure. A big NT that can rotate with Ratliff and in some packages both can play the same down. Campbell, Ratliff, Hatcher, Soliai, Spears, Brent, and Lessimore is a good deep DL. Maybe add another DE in the draft.

5. Aaron Ross or Brandon Carr, we need a vet young CB to replace Newman, I think we need to draft a CB early for the future but CB is the hardest position for a rookie to play. Get a vet in here that can play man cover and let the rookie get ready.
Avril is an interesting player, I saw him drop back and pick off a pass last week, still looked alittle stiff so I don't know how much he could cover TEs and RBs. I think he could do it but I don't know if I want to pay a 4-3 DE big money to switch to SOLB when he has never done it before. Thats a big gamble.
I like your list, but no to Dashon Goldston. If we went after him last year he wouldn't have costed much. He put up another good year on a good team, so he will cost way more this year.
If we come away with Campbell, Griffin, Nicks. That would be an incredible FA haul.
