I'd say:

1. Pass rushing stand up LBs. I think our DLine has made the conversion to 3-4 just fine and between Jordan, Hicks, and Foster, there will bne a decent interior rush. But we are lacking the outside rushers. We haven't seen Gallette and Wilson all preseason and our depth has has two key injuries.

2. Offensive Tackles, Charles Brown is unproven, Zach Streif is as mediocre as they come, and Terron Armstead is pretty raw. We benefit from Brees and his pocket awareness and the way he steps up into the pocket making Guards more valuable than Tackles, but we watched out last LT get beaten like a drum for far too long to not be able to honestly say this is not a position of need.

3. Centerfielder type safety, not since Sharper in 2009 have we had someone we could leave alone in the backfield and expect to be able to make plays on his own. We might have a gem in the future with Vacarro, but we haven't seen what he can do in a real game yet. But the potential is there. Harper is good in the box, but asking him to cover is asking for trouble. I want to love Jenkins, he has heart, but he has continually regressed over the years. We need more help over the top.

My 2 cents.

NSF nailed this pretty much...Nothing I can really even think to add to that.
