If we cannot get a top tier OLB/DE, then trade back and pick up a xtra second and third and get a C and a G.
I think that Ryan thinks Church can get it done at Safety; so realistically the D should be OK except for OLB as regards Spencer; he will almost certainly get offered too much for us to match.
The young guys we have on the D line are just going to have to be enough this coming year; hopefully with much better results then the young guys on the O line the last two years.
O line is the need. And with the cap situation as it is I doubt we can get much that is any good in FA. So it will have to be the draft.
You're setting yourself up for a bad draft. You can not fixate on needs. What if we're picking 16th and the 6th overall player on our board is still available and he happens to be a DT while the next guy is 14th and he's a WR. The first OL is sitting there at 20. Everybody in the room is telling you he's not near the player of that DT. We reach for the OL? We trade down and miss out on what our scouts tell us is an elite talent?
This is one of the reasons why teams stack bad classes together. Constantly chasing needs during a talent acquisition process.
Take the talent.
