That's why they made a big play to get Alex Mack away from the Browns, to upgrade that C spot. They signed Zane Beadles to play G but... he's not that great. This is a pretty good draft for OG talent, so they should be able to patch that up pretty good.
On the defensive side, they re-signed Babin for DE but he's 34 now. They signed Clemons to play DE but he's 32 and coming off a down year. They signed Ziggy Hood for DT but that's just depth. They're moving Alualu back inside. But they really probably got their best signing with Red Bryant, who's an upgrade over Alualu. But Bryant doesn't really help with the pass-rush and that's where they had problems.
Babin and Clemons could give them some good seasons and give them more of a pass rush than they had last year but they're both just stop-gap players. They need to draft some young DE talent to prepare for the future.
