Defensive Line - DT or DE, both need an addition.
Cornerback - We need a better starter opposite Slay.
Linebacker - I actually like Whitehead as an OLB, Levy at MLB. But they need help here, 1 because Levy is a health concern and two they just need more talent at this position.
Offensive Line - Which is sad because we've Drafted enough guys in the First 3 Rounds in recent years that our Line should be MUCH better. (Decker, Reiff, Swanson, Warford, Tomlinson all young guys). Or maybe we just need a better Offensive Line Coach. But something isn't right.

Lawson is better suited for the slot. He's outmatched as a #2. Just because he's better than other players at other positions doesn't mean he's good.

Idk I wanna see if killibrew has more than just potential. Kid made a number of solid plays in limited snaps. I wouldn't mind bringing in another veteran in case but I wouldn't use a draft pick there.

I dont think he's better in the slot at all. He tends to struggle with quicker, faster guys. His style is more suited on the outside.

Lawson is best suited as a 3rd boundary corner. Let's not forget we have Quandre Diggs for the slot and was pretty effective at it.

Wasn't Diggs playing pretty awful early before he got injured?

For what it's worth PFF ranked Tahir and Taylor I believe top 3 worst players starting at there position.

Its not gonna happen, but Id like to move Tate if was practical.

Stills is pretty good.

We need a guy that can beat man coverage. Our WR's this year too often got locked down against man coverage.

Killibrew as our starting saftey...idk about that but definitely a role on this team for him. I like him as a 3rd down guy with certain matchups. I actually like him more as an olb

We need to see what happens with Reiff. If he leaves, OT immediately becomes a massive need for this team.

Other than that, I would go...

DL - We have decent depth, need a starter at DT or DE.
LB - Might be #1. Our LB's sucked this year. Nobody knows what's happening with Levy.
CB - Slay and Lawson are good, but I think Lawson is a FA soon. Get another guy here.
OL - Never hurts to add depth. A guy that can go between T and G would be useful.
S - We have decent players here but it never hurts to get younger.
WR - We need a young guy here. Tate/Jones/Boldin are fine, but someone needs to develop and make a few players here and there.
RB - I like Abdullah/Riddick/Zenner/Washington, but I would like to take advantage of a deep RB class.
TE - Either sign a FA or draft a blocking-type. This is a deep TE class I believe.

I mostly want the team to build the defense. Add some depth on the offensive line and add in a young playmaker at WR and/or RB.

I think we should take on the top ISO and trade for Martavious Bryant. I bet we can get him for a 5th or 6th round pick. He would be our #1 WR.
