I think the key is keeping the core of the Defense together. Especially the DB's and Edge Rushers is really important. I am super disappointed in the Su'a Cravens signing, but am hopeful that he can get on the field next year. But signing a S like Earl Thomas/Ha-Ha Clinton Dix/Landon Collins would be an upgrade at that position. If C Harris gets back and we re-sign Roby, I think we are better off at CB than we were to start the year. Most every guy at CB can play. Looking at an ILB is probably smart, but our guys are serviceable at that position. If we were to go after a C.J. Mosley, I would not be mad. I think re-signing Shaq Barrett is a smart move too, he is a CSU Ram; nuf said. Keeping Peko is important as well. There are two or 3 DTs that are interesting too. Sheldon Richardson and Grady Jackson are guys I really like. But given the depth at DT in the draft, this this may not be a position to spend the money on.
While I agree that we should not break the bank, we need to make a splash at key positions on the offensive side of the ball. ER, OL and QB. Keenum is NOT the answer. He can't play. Trading for a Flacco? Signing Teddy Bridgewater? Tyrod Taylor is a FA? Trading with PHI for one of their guys? Cutting Keenum and replacing with one of these guys would be a big upgrade and bridge us to win soon and draft the QBOF this year or next.
I would also really like to see us look at a Golden Tate/Donte Mocreief/Tavon Austin at WR.
We need help at TE in a big way given that Heuerman is a UFA and we are a mess here with injuries. Tyler Eifert and Jared Cook are UFA. Man I would love to see us with one of them. It would put us in a great position to see if Jake can once again come back from injury and resign the young kids in Matt Lacrosse and Brian Parker. Both of whom showed they can play.
I really think the OL boils down to resigning Veldheer and Paradis, Max Garcia and Billy Turner. Outside of QB, I think keeping the OL together and looking to draft OLOF is our most important priority.
My Early take is:
Roby, Paradis, Barrett, Garcia, Veldheer, Peko, Turner, Shelby Harris, Jordan Taylor.
Tyrod Taylor (assuming we don't trade), Jared Cook, Ha-Ha Clinton Dix, Donte Moncreif.
QB, WR, DT, CB, ILB, OG, OT, TE, QB, QB, QB
