I guess the title says it all.

We went into the season calling this one of the most talented rosters around. In reality, Roseman and Reid should be arrested for fraud. This roster, in particular the bottom third where we should be getting the bulk of our special teams production out of shouldn't be in the NFL.

So back to the question in hand. Going into the offseason, is there any position which you wouldn't be unhappy about upgrading - either in the draft of in free agency?

For example

Would you look to add another defensive end?
Can we upgrade the interior line?
What do we do about wide receiver?

In my opinion, we should look to take the best player at any position. The only position I would fee comfortable not upgrading would be running back.

We can upgrade every position that isn't running back. Its that simple. I'd rather have a surplus of one position rather than reaching for a player in the draft who will probably bust.

Yeah RB is solid for us, and I think we're probably okay at ILB if we stick to the 4-3

Everything else requires upgrade. This won't be a one- or two-season quick fix

Yep we can do better across the board except at RB, but we could upgrade the depth obviously. Next would be kicker, Henery has been consistent and solid....I mean yea you can always upgrade your kicker to a guy who knocks off 60 yarders like its nothing...but those guys don't exist....I don't see a point in trying to draft a kicker or sign one in FA. And Demeco is good as long as we are in a 4-3. And if healthy Peters s obviously can't be improved

DRC, Shady, Peters, and Demeco are the only guys that you have no chance in hell with being able to upgrade.

Runningback is a position we don't need to touch.
McCoy is elite
Brown looks like he has a ton of upside
Lewis is a decent option as a scatback, and is a #3 at best
Polk is a tough inside runner and can play special teams
Havili has been good when he's actually got in the game

I'd have no issue adding a DE, provided he's BPA. I think Ezekiel Ansah could be special. He could play DE or standup as a rush linebacker.

We need to improve at worst on the interior RG and depth. Thank godness the new staff has no allegiance to fireman.

There are a ton of big WRs who we can add in the 2nd-3rd round area.

We also need an option at QB. While its not the best there are some players with upside to be good players in the NFL.

I really wish we drafted Kapernick, he's flinging it around the field with ease right now. We took Danny Watkins over him...

RB, FB, MLB and K are the only positions I can think of. Every single other position could certainly be improved, some more than others... (T, G, C, QB, S)

Yeh, the only way I'd look to bring someone in at RB is to be a kick returner/back up RB - McCoy and Brown look a sufficient 1-2 punch.

I don't see why any position would be "off limits" but there are definitely positions that need upgrades more than others and positions where upgrades are more impactful than others.

I'd say we need upgrades at QB, OL, TE, DL, WLB, S and CB. We're fine with the guys we have at WR.

We need a replacement for Maclin way way way more than we need a WLB. I don't think you can even point to a game this season where the Will played a majority of the snaps

RG - Mathis moves here we're ok
RT - Peters move here we're ok

Z - yes

LE - Graham/Curry? Could be improved if needed.
UT - Cox

We also don't know the scheme being brought in.

How hillarious is it that the only position we are stacked at is the only position we don't use.
