    I'm always thinking best palyer available, but needs should be identified. I see ILB (to replace Brooking, who might retire after a SB win :)) OT, OG, CB, C,S, and a kicker. (Don't tell Hos) :p:

    Ratliff needs a back up. And god forbid me for saying this, a freaking kicker. Can never have enough DB's and OL either.

    I think the only positions you might not draft, at least plan to draft at this time, is TE and QB. I think you can add RB to that but who knows.

    So that leaves anything on the o and d lines, the secondary, the WRs and LB corp plus I guess you could add in a possible kicker if they want to let SS go and not bring in another one.

    That is kind of a good thing for this team, they can basically just draft the BPA and chances are it will fit a need to provide depth to groom as a possible future starter.

    I have a feeling Brooking may retire after we in the SB this year.

    Rolondo should be in our sights then.

    Eventually, but next year he's Carpenters replacement at dime backer.

    I think Brooking stays put another year.


    Oh yeah, we need another ballhawk type safety.

    11 interceptions is not gonna cut it.

    FS
    OL depth (Especially tackle depth)
    NT depth


    Those are the three that I think are most pressing.

    Probably most glaring is a long-term replacement for Flo at LT, which we should have the option to get in this draft. However, the chance to upgrade or find a longterm successor at ILB, FS, CB, and WR are close behind. This entire team should be intact again next year so BPA will be the strategy and I expect to see a trade down from the 32 pick to recoup our fifth and because all the top tier difference makers will be gone by then. I'd rank our needs as ....OL, ILB, CB, FS, WR in that order but I think the best way to improve our team immediately (because hard to see a rookie starting and contributing at any position save a player like Earl Thomas or Dez Bryant) would be at the WR position, who could return kicks. I'd still like to replace Roy...of course Ogletree may very well be that guy.
