NFL Draft: What do we need NOW and LATER

I think our "draft needs" and our "1st round draft needs" are kinda different.

 

We need LBer help bad, and the secondary could use help at CB or even S.  We need to be better there, but i don't really know that those are positions i'd spend 1sts on, unless there's someone special that really fits.  Those might be the biggest "needs", but you can find guys at those positions later.

OLine obviously needs work at multiple positions.  I'd probably start at LT and see how that shuffles guys around to maybe cobble a decent line together from there.  Depends on what's there at our picks though.  An interior OL wouldn't upset me with the Rams 1st.

 

Probably the other most pressing things that stand out for "Round 1" value are WR and TE.  We need dynamic, gamebreaking pass-catching talent.  Someone outside to slot Chark into the right place as a WR2.  Someone with bigtime TE upside to be that go-to target while also fitting with a team that is built to run the ball.

 

Depending on what happens cap-wise, we'll probably be in the market for Interior DL help.  Nobody there is really getting any younger anyway.  That's going to be fairly dependent on what sort of new coach and scheme we plan to install though.  Hard to pin down exactly what we'll even need most there.

 

Heck, i'm not even sure we shouldn't be in the 1st Round QB game.  Especially if someone i like is there with that Rams 1st.

im not seeing a 1st round talent at TE right now,  best of the lot per Draft Network is an Evan Engram kinda TE.

Evan Engram was a legit 1st round talent TE, though not the most well-rounded, polished one of the sort i think we'd be looking for.

That is...

 

Big words.

 

 

There have been some darn good WR classes in his years.

 

The question is...how much of that is depth vs top-end quality.  Because what we need isn't more depth...it's that absolute gamebreaking stud.  We need a Julio.  Idk that this draft is deep in those types.

Yes but hes pretty much a jumbo-slot and move te.  I wanna say Oliver was drafted to be a move te for us. We need a more rounded te.

You saw the comp of Ceedee and Jeudy to AJ Green and Julio by Ian Wharton, no?

Ceedee and Jeudy are like the AJ Green vs Julio Jones debate. throw in Guys like Tee Higgins, Henry Ruggs, Jaelen Reagor, Devonta Smih are some of the good names in the draft. 

Jeudy, Ruggs(speed Demon), and smith are all from Bama.

Exactly why I don’t think drafting a wide out in the first is a good option.. LB Simmons from Clemson paired with the best OL available in the first or DB should be priority 1.

If we want Jeudy we need to probably trade both 1sts

No thank you.

Tua has a potentially career threatening hip injury ala Bo Jackson from the sounds of it. Hope he recovers.

While i agree to a point the counterpoint is what if say lamb is there available or jeudy.  Wouldn't be a bad idea getting a true 1

Seeing a lot of mocks lately with Simmons coming this way with our top pick. 

Idk, I feel like Quincy had a chance to be something and Myles really needs to move off and go to WLB. I feel like we really need a true Mike.

We're getting to the point where Derrick Brown should be a legit possibility too. Not sure I ever saw him falling to mid terms, but 5-9?
