2019 Team Needs

Recommended Posts

I've noticed most mocks seem to be going almost pure BPA (maybe with the exception of QB - and even those "needs" often seem dubious).  I get that there will be a lot of BPA picks, but really teams will have a choice between 4 or 5 "BPA" and will often pick a position of need.  

What are some of the most dire positions of needs?

Packers: EDGE - Clay Matthews is aging may have to become only a situational pass rusher after this year and Nick Perry is both injury prone and not the guy to rely on as your #1 pass rusher.  Behind them there is little else.

Bengals: OT - Bobby Hart, Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher are amongst the worst OTs in the league routinely being abused by defenses.  This need is glaring

Panthers: EDGE - Julius Peppers is how old?  Addison has been good the last couple of years, but is also getting along.  Behind them seems to be backup guys

Browns: LT - Gotta keep their QB upright.

Here are the results of a survey from reddit, there were some complaints but it seems to be relatively accurate:

For the  Colts I would say our biggest holes right now are RT, WR, MLB, and CB.  The DL has some solid vets that are playing well and a couple somewhat promising young guys, but there is still serious work to be done there as well.

This isn't hyperbole, I think the Bills could address every single position and see it as a potential upgrade to what they have now.

I think the OL, DL and WR are the obvious top three however. CB and SLB are the next two choices.

Browns:

WR #1

OT #1

DE #1

DT #1

CB Depth

 

Those are the 4 positions we need new starters at plus CB, where we could afford to upgrade opposite Denzel Ward.

??? DE?

I thought Ogbah was doing good. And you have MG.

Garrett is a stud. Ogbah has been injured the last two years. He's been fine when on the field, but he's beginning to turn into a liability because he can't stay healthy. Plus we could use another superstar edge rusher given next year's draft class is riddled with DL talent.

 

We basically need 1 more stud DL somewhere. Whether it's at DT or DE.

Ogbah has been really good vs the run and meh in pass rush situations, but do agree its going to be some nice guys coming in next years draft. If you had the choice which would you take if our pick came around, DE Cleland Ferrell, DT Raekwon Davis/Dexter Lawrence or WR K'Neal Harry/ A.J Brown?

Patriots

 

WR: Only Edelman is signed past next year

Safety: Chung & McCourty are over 30, and they have no real understudies

QB: Eventually the succession plan needs to start

CB: Rowe probably won't be re-signed

LB: Hightower hasn't looked himself this year yet

DL: Another pass rusher and another run stuffer would be in order

OL: Some uncertainty on the left side (Wynn recovery, Brown will probably chase contract in FA)

The Bucs could use a DE to replace Curry and JPP. 

Maybe RB and a CB. 

Addition is a disease!

 

 

Freaking hate that guy, in terms of team needs yeah Minnesota Vikings need OL help and that is pretty clear.  OG or OT would work either one, heck C if Elflein cannot stay healthy.

In that situation?

1. Dexter Lawrence

2. Raekwon Davis

3. Clellen Ferrell

4. N'Keal Harry

5. AJ Brown

Chiefs: CB is my #1 need right now. After that it's a toss up for BPA between DE, S, or C. That's assuming that we don't re-sign Mitch Morse, which we better.

Miami's roster is very adequate across the board right now. These needs would be due to players leaving in FA and  cutting higher-priced guys 

1) LDE - Quinn and Harris are more weakside RDE's. Wake is old and costly and a FA. William Hayes is 33 but solid and could be resigned for another 1-yr deal. Branch is making over 10M for 2019 and needs to be restructured or cut. A 4-3 base DE like Bosa, Gary or Allen playing over the RT would do wonders for the level of play and the cap situation over the next few years.

2) DT - Godchaux looks to be a good starter. J. Philips will be a FA and may be overpaid by some else. Akeem Spnce is OK. An impact guy next to Godchaux would be nice. Maybe more of a D. Lawrence NT type.

3) RT - James is decent and on an expensive 5th year option this season

4) OL - Depth Needed

5) LB - Depth Needed

Some big ones for the Raiders:

  • Edge player. Trading Mack left an obviously huge void. Bruce Irvin only has a few good plays a game now, and Key isn't ready quite yet.
  • RT. Kolton Miller has been excellent thus far (Didn't even realize Chubb once when we played), but moving Penn to RT has been rough. We need a RT badly.
  • S. Joseph barely sees the field and can be considered a bust. Reggie Nelson is horrible yet always plays. We need a Safety, probably two.
  • LB. Derrick Johnson is okay but old. I doubt he is here next year.
