25th pick in the first round
2 second round picks

Lots of vets probably gone - Long, Graham, Foles, Ngata, Peters just to start

So many holes to fill. So many directions.

Lots of offseason to go :(

Overhauls:

Running Back
Offensive Line
Defensive Line
Linebackers
Kick Returner (Get Carter back if possible)

Tweaks:
Quarterback (Foles is gone)
Wide Receiver (Deep threat)

Depth Needs:
Tight End (Need a 3rd)
Defensive Back (2nd S?)

You can’t go into next season with this LB corps. That’s my #1 need above all else. Just look at what VanderEsch did for that Dallas defense this year. But who knows who’ll be around at 25

Bradham is a keeper, but that's all you can count on.

I don't know that they can keep counting on Hicks even though he does have a lot of talent.

The one good thing is that at least Hicks is healthy going into an offseason where he can really work on his body, work on his game without having to spend time rehabbing. Maybe they get a healthy MLB. But this might be where they need to spend some money and invest a 2nd rd pick.

I’m extremely hard on Schwartz but part of me wonders if the LBs are poor bc of him or vice versa. Hicks didn’t show me what I thought he would when fully healthy, maybe he’s still learning. GHill is basically special teamer caliber fill in.

Our areas of need and priority will depend on who may be leaving.

There is a possibility we may lose one or more of Foles, Kelce, Graham, Hicks, and Bennet.
Can Brooks fully recover from a torn Achilles?
Can Jason Peters play another year at a high/respectable level?

Aside of those unknowns, IMO I think we need to upgrade

- WR (speedy to stretch the field)
- RB (a bell cow to effectively handle 20-25 touches)
- LB
- OL depth

So what do we have in house to address the holes...

OL-can Mailita and Pryor step up after a year of coaching and getting stronger?

DL-what is Sweat going to become with an offseason coaching and strength program? Barnett will be back. Can he replace Grahmn?

WR-can Hollins come back and be a deep threat? Does Wallace come back?

CB's-between Jones, Leblanc, Douglas and Maddox do we need Mills, Darby?

LB's-drawing a blank here?

RB's-are we OK with Clement, Adams, Sproles (if he comes back) and Smallwood? Bryce Love with a 4-5 round flyer.

OL's and DL's are more important.

We definitely need a corner. Who is going to cover Amari Cooper? I don't trust Darby or Mills to. And Darby is a free agent. I am surprised people are acting like we don't need a CB. Look what Michael Thomas did. We need a guy who can matchup with #1's.

We desperately need about 2 RB's. At least one linebacker. A defensive lineman and OT needed. And an outside WR.

Bleeding Green is saying the Saints wanted to avoid R Douglas. Didn't want M Thomas lining up against him. I don't have the ability to know if this is the case but then I didn't write it either.
