I think you should add DE. We definitely need an upgrade there. IMO, the positions we absolutely have to upgrade are DE, NT, and RT.

I'd say we need to find a TE, LG, RG, RT, RDE, NT, MLB, and two CB within the next couple off-seasons.

We desperately need to address our defensive woes in the pass rushing department, secondary, and find a run stuffing nose tackle to put in the middle of our defensive line. We also need to improve the interior of our offensive line and sure up the right tackle spot.

QB - Palmer will be fine with a half decent OC, Pryor still learning
RB - DMC, Goodson, Reece will be fine
WR - Could do with a bona fide NR 1 but more a desire than a need
TE - Not 'needed' unless Myers walks in FA
OT - Could do with an upgrade at RT but not urgent
OG - Definately a need, Carlisle will probably retire and Briesel is a ?
OC - Fine

DE - Definately a need at RDE, pass rush helps everything else on D
DT - Bryant and Bilikidi could start but we need depth at least, stout NT type would be desireable but not as urgent as RDE IMO
LB - We need a new MLB and depth, not as high priority as DE or OG IMO
CB - We need one new starter and depth
S - Depth only, i think Huff and Branch are fine for now

IMHO we 'need' a starting caliber RDE, OG, MLB, CB. These should be the priorities, we don't 'need' as such but 'desire' to get RT, DT, LB depth, CB depth, S depth, NR1 WR

I don't think we need a new starter at TE. Meyers is just fine to me.

Offense:

You could make a case to replace QB, SS, OLBs

Awful run blocker.

Offers no RAC.

Not a threat down the seam.

Does his best work against soft zones in garbage time.

Myers is average at best, and "average" might be giving him too much credit.

I'm all for keeping him, but with no intentions of starting him, nor paying him as a starter. If another team is that misguided, let them waste their salary cap on him.

New starters:

LG
RG
RT
TE
WR

RE
NT
DT (If Bryant walks)
MLB
SAM (If Wheeler walks)
LCB
RCB


An argument can also be made for QB, FB, and FS.
