McNair even stated that if they expect to run the ball better the OL has to improve.
I see them addressing RT and WR with either early draft picks (rounds 1-2) or significant FA additions.
In the mid rounds I see ILB / OLB and DB being addressed.
Ricky Wagner has tons of potential and comes from a pro style offense in Wisconsin. I drafted him and he would immediately push Newton, but I doubt Gary gives up on Newton that soon, just not his MO
