    I'm saying defensive line..... We don't know what we are going to do in FA yet, so we really don't know. But I do feel you can get some great talent, immediate impact players on defense, high in the draft.

    FA might change my opinion but as of right now ... OLine

    Agreed that FA might make a difference but for now i put O-LINE.

    It is almost a no brainer "O-LINE"

    While I think TE is the weakest area on our team, I think O-line is a bigger need. They both need to be drafted IMO.

    While I think we are only 1 or 2 players away from the o-line, the past four years have shown that we DESPERATELY need those players. Without them, we are still just throwing DC to the lions and have no offense.

    I have to go D-Line. We are two players away on the O-line, maybe even just one, but the D-Line is only has guys at one position so we are at least 3-4 away there. Mario Williams and a much stronger Peek, Babin, Pettway, cheap FA or low draft pick away from a dangerous pass rush.

    i agree that O-line should be a no brainer, which is what i voted for, but LB & TE are the biggest defficiancies after that IMO.

    O-line then MLB. Someone is going to have to captain our defense so we're going to need a good one.

    O Line. With D-Line and D-Backs tied for a close second. Then LB, and TE.

    DE. The Texans can get some decent offensive lineman later in the draft, but it's hard to land a dominate pass rushing DE.

    The biggest single-position need is:
    DE
    interior OL
    OT
    TE
    MLB
    CB

    The biggest area of need is:
    OLine
    DLine
    TE
    DBs
    LBs

    Yes, for all you trade down fans O-line is the problem. However that doesn't mean we have to use our first pick on one.

    I voted Oline, I don't care if it is addressed in the first round, but it needs to be addressed on the first day. Also, we should draft 1 or 2 more on the second day. With Kubiak and Sherman, the Oline should look very different next year.

    Houston, again.
    True, and it's at least twice as hard to find an elite LT outside of the top ten picks as it is a pass rushing DE. Both are hard to come by but the LT is much harder.

    I think either would be a good choice. I don't know which is really harder to come by, but with Kubiak I don't think we need an OT in the first. On that note I would be happy if we did draft Fergeson.
