Team Needs
  • QB: Finding a franchise QB is an absolute must. There is no option but to draft a QB, either as a potential franchise player or developmental project.
  • WR: Patience is always difficult, but building around a QB and front-line receiver could pay long-term dividends.
  • DT: Kevin Williams is a good piece, but beyond that, there are gaps to fill.
