    We need to add another DE or two.
    I would like to see us take one early but there isn't that many thats going to be available.

    Free Agents:
    Desmond Bryant

    Sheldon Richardson (most likely be a top 15 pick)
    Kawann Short
    Margus Hunt
    Datone Jones

    This should be a d-line and 0-line draft period. we have to improve the pass rush, and we have to improve the interior o-line play.

    I'd like to add a DE via FA and take a NT in the Draft early. I think this is supposed to be a good draft for NTs.

    I don't think that its that good, its a better 4-3 DT draft than 3-4 NT draft.
    Star and Hankins will be gone before we pick.
    I'm not a fan of John Jenkins. Kawann Short and Sylvester Williams are not NTs in a 3-4. McCullers and Brandon Williams is raw and Jesse Williams is a good player but not great.

    I think there's a pretty decent chance 1 of Richardson or Hankins makes it to 18. Either 1 would have to be strongly considered if available. Sharrif Floyd is another name to consider if he makes it to our pick in the 2nd.

    I'm glad William Gholston was mentioned. He is a good player with a nastiness that this team needs. He is completely the opposite of his brother who was a bust (Vernon Gholston). He has great size and really long arms. He would be a good start to add to the defensive line.

    I don't think DE is a big need.

    We have a lot of talent at DE right now and Crawford will only get better.

    Hatcher and Crawford are solid starting DEs in a 3-4.

    We'll keep one of Coleman/Spears as depth and run stuffing.

    Some intriguing prospects late in this draft. There is a kid from Princeton which might be a good look at r7. Izaan from GT is another late round possibility.

    But this isn't a need position IMO and will get drafted only if the BPA.
