I'm about 99% sure Kubes will draft another QB, probably in the late rounds for development. After last year I don't think he will take the chance of just having 2 QB's on the roster, especially with Schaub's past injury issues.
Secondly, I think they look for depth at NT. I know we went a whole year with only Cody and Mitchell last season but I really think they will try to get a NT/DT in the Draft. Besides, Cody is almost 29 and coming up on a contract year, and Mitchell is probably best suited for DE IMO. Also, if they get another NT to rotate with Cody and move Mitchell to DE, he (Mitchell) could always move back to DT if they get in a bind with injuries during a game.
Thirdly, and this hinges on Rackers coming back or not, they may draft a Kicker (For the 1st time ever!) in the 6th or 7th.
Anyway, just some thoughts to throw out there.
yes I do agree on all your thoughts...I feel that QB..may be addressed in FA...Kubes' likes TJ and may be grooming him to eventually be the starter when Schaub gets hurt or is no longer productive..I never felt like you have to draft a 1st round QB to make it to the promised land and I know you're not suggesting that, but we may just grab Delhomme or Garcia again or another QB in FA thats knows the terminology of Kube's offense
NT, I cant argue with that. Wade runs a 3-4 that looks as a 4-3..so its hard to say what Wade will look at.
Kicker...yes we do need one...just feel we may grab one as an UFA
