View Full Version : Rank Team Needs.

The talk in the rebuilding thread got me to thinking about which needs have a higher priority.

I think it starts at QB , but that's pretty obvious. There is a lack of bodies along the defensive line (Watt , Crick & Powe). The OL has some holes too , especially RT and to a lesser extent LG.
Cant forget about ILB and the secondary either. That nickel CB is a starter ....


Here's my list. Obviously some get filled thru the draft but the rest need attention after the draft with bargain FA's , kinda like Mays last year.


QB - Fitzpatrick , Keenum & Yates. I don't see a starter for a contending team.

DE - Watt & .....

CB - That Nickel corner is a starter. Seriously lacking talent behind KJax and JJo.

DT/NT Only one on the roster.

RT - Newton was just bad last year. Harris is gone (for now). Neither of last years rookies contributed and finished the season on IR. The Andrew Gardner project should be over. If you think Quessenberry or B.Williams will contribute the need is less critical.

RB - Tate gone , Foster coming off of an injury riddled season. Had street FA's toting the rock late in the season. If Foster is healthy there isn't much concern for anything but a backup.

ILB - Cushing & who ? Maybe Tuggle contributes ?? Reed moves inside making a hole at OLB ??

WR & TE probably belong on the list. Not much talent behind #80 , Hopkins & Posey when healthy. Graham looks capable & Griffin showed well but neither are traditional blocking TE's.

We need 20+ players, imo... BPA.

QB, DE, SCB, RT, NT, rush OLB, big ILB, LG, Slot WR, RBs, SS, LG, and depth across majority of these and other positions plus quality move and Y TEs with an eye on replacing #1 WR, C, CB.

QB.. I don't see a future with what we've got
RT... maybe he's on the roster, Q or Brennan, maybe not
TE.... again, maybe on the Roster, doubt it
WR... I still got hope for Posey, but it's running out
RB... the one thing I did like about Tate, was that I thought he pushed Foster. I hate that it's got to be that way, but I think Foster works better with competing against someone on our team
K... I don't trust the Hobbit
ILB... Batman needs a Robin
SS... I miss Glover. I hope DJ works out & Crennel's defense helps him shine
OLB... if our DEs play as 2 gap defenders over the OT, maybe Brooks & Whitney can be who we need them to be


Defense beat Peyton Manning the last two years... but putting pressure on him to score was just as important as chasing him off his spot & harassing his receivers.

I don't think we'll be contending for a Super Bowl next year, but I'd rather start on our offense in 2014 since it takes longer for an offense to mature. We can add 3 or 4 defensive players in 2015 & they can start kicking butt right away.... and our offense will pull it's own weight.

I believe if we add our defensive pieces now, their efforts will be wasted as we struggle to score 16 points. Then add a few offensive pieces in 2015 & they still not gel until it's too late in the season to mean anything.

Catching up on today's television chatter about the Schaub trade (and Fitz)...

What does it mean for the Raiders?

The Raiders do not need to take a QB at pick #5 now, there's no QB worth top 5 pick.

What does it mean for the Texans?

The Texans will be taking Blake Bortles #1.

nickel (agree with corrosion completely, this is basically a starting role.)

Lg, rb, ilb
(Q is my favorite for LG easily, we're counting on Cushing who's comming off 2 injuries, yeesh)

Somewhere far away in the distance i'd include te and slot wr.

1. QB -- We need someone who's going to lead this team.
2. RT -- We need someone who keeps the guy who's going to lead this team from getting killed.
3. OLB -- We need someone who can put pressure on the other team's QB without putting his hand in the dirt. Right now, I'm not convinced that's Whitney Mercilus or Brooks Reed.
4. DE -- We need someone opposite JJ.
5. ILB -- We need someone beside Cush. If Brooks Reed can fill this role, great.
6. K -- Seriously. Get Rob Bironas on the phone, STAT!
7. CB -- We need a nickel corner and/or depth. Not feeling the Brandon NoFly Harris love.
8. G -- In case Quess isn't the guy I think he is.

That would be my shopping list based on need. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't draft a TE or a WR or some other position if they were the BPA.

Absolute best case scenario with bold is that we draft an OLB high (Van Noy or Dee Ford @ 2-1) and Brooks has the ability to play inside. Kill two birds with one stone IMO.

That's what I'm hoping.

Last year, I was really, really wanting us to find a good ILB in the draft. It didn't happen and that hurt us in the long run.

right tackle, inside linebacker, nose tackle, and depth in the secondary are our main concerns.

left guard, right defensive end, outside linebacker, and depth at runningback are question marks.

obviously i'm missing a big one that most will label first, and that's quarterback. i'm leaving it out because honestly i dont know where we're at at quarterback. i'm not ready to write off keenum because he couldnt carry the epic failure our team became last year, and i'm a bit curious to see what fitz can do on a team that isnt quite the disaster that he's used to. we most likely need our "QB of the future", but i'm in more of a wait and see approach here.

7. OLB

QB is obviously our biggest need. We might have our RT on the team already, but that`s what we were thinking the last two seasons. With a real RT we`d have made the playoffs last season (no, I am not crazy - we headed into a downward spiral because of losses...), so I am not ready to just hope on the guys on our roster.

We don`t really have anyone who can play next to Cushing, and his health is a concern. NT is an important position in Crennels defense, so is DE. TE is a little bit more of a luxury, but I expect BoB wants to play with lots of 2 TE sets. We can always use another pass rusher, or at the very least depht behind Mercilus and Reed. Our O-line could use another guard, maybe Quess can take that spot.

With Tate gone, we could really usa an HB to push Foster. We don`t know if we have a reliable slot receiver yet - who knows if Martin or Posey can fit that role. And our kicking last year was atrocious - I don`t know if I feel comfortable to give Bullock another chance.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
I'd like to use this year to install/improve the supporting cast for our franchise QB - whoever that might be. I know I'm alone here, but I'm just not convinced that guy is in this draft.

Yeah , I think Center is one of the few positions this team is solid at with Myers and Jones. Maybe Safety as I like Keo more than most , think he played well when given the opportunity. With he , Swearinger , Manning and the recent signing of Kendrick Lewis they wont have to add another body there.

Damn near every other position needs some help , from starter to depth.

Team Needs (As I see them)


1. Super Bowl Victories. Biggest need the team has at this point in time. Most likely this will remain at the top of the teams list of needs. Expect to see it year in and year out.

2. Super Bowl Appearances. Nearly as important as #1.

3. Playoff Wins.

4. Playoff Appearances.

5. Division Championships.

6. Regular Season Wins.


Wait, that's not what you meant?

Let's talk safety for a minute. So we have Manning and Swearinger AKA Jungle Boi Swagg at SS.

I know Keo looked improved last year, but I don't think he could get any worse than he was in the past. So are we confident moving forward with Keo/Lewis (who might be washed up/not that good (what I think) or might be good again with Romeo C) as our starting FS?

It appears by signing Lewis, we are likely not going to further address the FS position which I felt should be addressed, but like you all are saying, it's kind of low on the list. Would you address it in the draft? By address I mean 4th round or earlier.

Team needs, as I see them:
1. QB, obviously.
2. RT, Newton sucked and B. Williams probably will never play. Someone has to protect our new investment at QB.
3. OLB, in the 2 gap system the OLB's are the play makers and a good OLB fixes 2 spots by moving Reed to ILB.
4. FS, a good FS offers better support to the CB's allowing them to take chances occasionally and making the secondary better as a whole.
5. DE, we currently got Watt and Crick, but we need an upgrade at DE and depth.
6. CB, we need added competition with Brandon Harris for the nickle spot, current depth, and future starters at the position.
7. RB, we've currently got an injured Foster and ..........
8. LB corp. depth, the heart of a 3-4 defense is the LB corp. and we need depth badly.
9. O-line depth, we need depth at OG and OT.

McLain emphatically said three weeks ago that we would NOT trade Matt Schaub. He's wrong as much as he is right.

Clowney wouldn't be playing with his hand in the dirt. He would be playing the elephant position. Players that have played the position in this defense have said Clowney could play it.

If RAC couldn't find a way to use a talent like Clowney then he isn't much of a coach.

call me crazy or a homer - or both. i dont think that's a bad lineup overall. the two that stand out to me are derek newton and jeff tarpinian ... neither have any business being near a starting job. most of the rest are at worst competent starters, and all the way up to all-pros. i think quess takes over at LG, there's no guarantee that fitz is the QB, and we'll have a draft pick or two win starting jobs on defense. provided we address those two most glaring holes (RT and ILB) and do a fair amount of work building depth, i'm ok going into next season with that lineup.

Offense : RT needs upgrade immediately. Ben jones and Quess should handle LG

The bolded positions need serious upgrading.
And as everyone has said, we need quality depth, especially on defense. A decent nickle CB or cover safety would be great. A quality OLB to rush the passer and a ILB that can cover when needed are needed to build a solid D.
I'm convinced we would have won more games last year if the first string defense didn't have to be on the field so long OR if there wasn't such a drop-off when the second string came out.

Oh and have I mentioned to you guys that RT is an issue...?

* means bonafide starter, possible pro-bowl/all-pro player.


I'm giving DAndre the benefit of the doubt. I feel really good about him. I like players who get in, go to work, & let their play speak for them. I don't have problem with a guy who runs off at the mouth & backs it up, but Dj Swag's play has a little catching up to do. I saw flashes. Just need to see more.

I like Brandon Brooks, I think he can be a solid starter. I'm not seeing pro-bowl or All-pro caliber, but maybe it's there. I also like Ben Jones. I think he plays well enough & would be a solid starter if he had the opportunity to play more.

I think Crick is about the same on the other side of the ball. He'll be a good solid starter.

I like Chris Clemons, or at least what I've read. I like him enough not to panic about FS. I like Tarpinian (I also like Mohamed)

That's a nice football team. Not championship caliber or anything like that, but if they get better QB play than what we had last season, that team can win in 2014.

If we can get just 3 starters out of this draft (I know, asking a lot) then that's a very good roster. Add a franchise QB & I can see play offs year after year after year.

We should draft Clowney, who might I add, is a beast. If we draft him, we can tank the rest of the draft, as long as we got Clowney in the first. He will make not only the Dline better, but it will also impact the Linebackers in a positive fashion.

We should draft Clowney, who might I add, is a beast. If we draft him, we can tank the rest of the draft, as long as we got Clowney in the first. He will make not only the Dline better, but it will also impact the Linebackers in a positive fashion. (We have?) needs everywhere, so we should look to improve from last year, because last year just wasn't that good.
Not bad...

QB.

ILB.

DE.


I don't think there is a QB in the 14 class worth the 1st pick with that being said, I would have to roll with Clowney. Hopefully, McCarron falls to the 3rd.

DE Stephon Tuitt is visiting the Texans Thursday. May be he is on the radar for pick 2.1 and Bortles with 1.1

lol but seriously though we need to add a good DE and LB. Look what other teams have done in our division, while we did nothing

Jags added Defensive ends Chris Clemons and Red Bryant.
Colts added DE Arthur Jones and LB D'Qwell Jackson
Titans added DE Shaun Phillips and LB Wesley Woodyard

Maybe that means we need to add OL?

Yea, Mercilus has not lived up to his First Round Pick expectations. Either way we need to put pressure on QB's. Not sure how our QB will perform with those FA signings our division rivals have done.
