Howdy.

In the process of preparing my mock drafts for the next six weeks. What would you say are the three or four most pressing needs for your team ranked in order of most to least?

Thanks!

1a) CB
1b) DE
2) LB
3) LG
4) TE

Obviously if Butler is traded to the Saints, DE and CB are flipped

1. CB (if we acquire Malcom Butler this need slips to #3).
2. DE (Okafor signing helps but team will look for a young edge rusher).
3. LB (Klein and Anthony are future at MIKe and SAM but need a young athletic WILL).
4. RB (need a versatile satellite back for Paytons offense)
5. QB (need to prepare for the future)

1) CB if we don't trade for Butler.
Pretty obvious. PJ Williams played really great for 5 quarters. Breaux is another often injured CB, he's average, but shows flashes of greatness. I think he's a fine #2 but struggles with speedster.

2a) Slot CB if we don't resign Sterling Moore. PJ can't be trusted to stay healthy, Damian Swann is also broken pretty often.

2b) DE - Okafor pushed this need down the list. We still need a young pass rusher for 3rd down situations and to develop. Kikahas availability leaves a lot to be desired.

3) Swing Tackle/LG - If a young tackle we like falls we can keep Peat at guard. If not, Peat will probably move to RT next year and we'll need his replacement. This is also good insurance for Armstead who often hurt. Finding a theme?

4) LB - Anthony is leaning towards bust and Klein is unknown to us. Ellerbe is always hurt and Stupar is Subpar.

4) TE or Receiving back- Both are needs, but our offense will function fine without them if the value isn't .

6) H-Back / receiving FB type. An athletic unpolished TE who has played some fullback or tackle. Josh Hill was supposed to be that guy, but it never happened. Kuhn is alright but old.
