    What do we really need??

    My list reads:
    Cornerback
    Left Tackle
    Running Back
    Free Safety
    Strong Safety
    Outside Linebacker x 2

    Have I missed anything??

    RB
    CB

    ...and pray that Spencer can make it back, or else we may be further away then we think we are.

    CB, FS, C, RB.....

    LT if Big Nasty can't come back.

    Grab BPA amongst those four or five positions.

    Hold up everyone. We just drafted fred Bennett in the last draft. I say, lets see what he can do before we start saying draft a corner.

    Although, if Bennett works out, maybe we go with a first round CB and then move Dunta to FS. That could potentially solve our FS problem.

    I'd like to see us draft a top tier corner or FS....

    I think Fred Bennet, Faggins, and Fletcher should all battle for the nickel back next year...

    I think Fred Bennet's future role is a good solid nickel back/special teamer for us...

    No...I thought we'd put this one to bed. Dunta is not big enough to play FS, unless you want to shorten his career.

    Dunta is taller than Bob Sanders.

    A) they are built differently, b) their skill sets are very different and c) Sanders tends to miss some time every year.

    Do we really want to move our best CB to FS, and start Bennett and xxxxx?

    Leave Dunta at CB, and work from there.

    We do have money this year, so we should see who is going to be available in Free Agency too.

    I think we are either going to draft a DB in the first and go after a running back in free agency or go after a DB in free agency and draft a RB in the first.

    Yup. We do have money. I would like to see us go after a Michael Turner or Terrell Suggs. Can you imagine a D with Amobi and Mario upfront and then Demeco and Suggs behind?!

    Guys we need to target:
    Alan Faneca - OL
    Asante Samuel - CB

    The talent of RB in this year's draft exceeds what will be available in FA.

    Actually I think they are built more similar than not. But, no, I don't want to move Dunta to SS or FS.

    Samuel would be great to pair with Dunta, but isnt Faneca a LG? If so, don't we already have Pitts there and Studdard behind him? Are you suggesting moving Faneca to RG and have Weary play center?

    Faneca has played LT before. 8 games or so if I'm not mistaken. But he mostly is a LG. Faneca's role would be dependant on Spencer's recovery. I think Faneca can play LT if Spencer is unable to.

    Agreed. Another thing you might consider is there is no garuntee that McKinney will come back. He's not a youngster any more. He's vested and he has business interests. Sucessful business interests.

    What I see on the board is a hole bunch of very athletic LBs. The first day is going to littered with them. I think they'll buy a CB. I've all but given up hope that they'll invest high in o-lineman. Hey two weeks untill they pull the top off of the "Will Chalres Spencer come back" present. A true October surprise .
