We still need a CB. We still need an impact DL other than Mario.
We need impact at a few positions. We don't need talent across the board like before, but we need a serious upgrade to quite a few positions before we can compete. FS and LT would be the most obvious examples, followed by OLB and another starting CB.
We don't have the depth to give picks away. Honestly, very few clubs ever do. And even when they do, it's only for a short period. Fool's gold way of thinking. Injuries happen. Player regression happens. FA happens. Depth is just a fictional word in the NFL.
That's honestly what free agents are for. You address a few needs there and then can play the draft and move up to get a guy or down to get more picks. We almost refuse to do that most of the time.
