I like Anzalone, but he's injury prone. Alonzo is alright, but isn't anything to write home about. Same with Craig Roberson, and he's getting up there a bit (32 yrs old). Running Back. We only have 2 in Kamara and Murray. If either goes down, like last season, we're hosed. And Dwayne Washington is not "the" answer. Quarterback. Brees is old, so we need a successor and a serviceable backup. Taysom Hill is good as a gadget player, but we have no idea what kind of QB he really is, other than what we've seen of his 13 passes over the last 3 seasons. I was thinking interior O-Line as well, but I'll let someone else chime in there. To me, the interior seems somewhat weak. I think the FO is happy with the Interior OL after resigning Peat to a massive overpay, but they probably think it was just injuries that caused issues there. I think the priority should probably be Linebacker as really outside of Davis and the oft-injured Anzalone no one is starter quality and with Anzalone always hurt we lack a quality 2nd LBer to put on the field as we are normally in nickel/dime anyways due to the conference. I would put a priority on a coverage linebacker over a run defender as well. RB I think is less of a priority but a definite need as like you said if Kamara or Murray goes down we are hosed so getting someone like JK Dobbins, Jonathon Taylor, or Cam Akers in the 3rd would be good value and possibly be able to phase out Murray long term. QB is a big question mark and I really think Payton is honest about his love for Hill. I don't see it but I don't see him not giving it a try. Maybe a QB in the later rounds to be a back-up so Hill's versatility can be used. I think WR/TE might still be a need. Outside of Thomas everyone is aging or hasn't really stepped up. A guy I like is KJ Hill who although had a poor run time at the combine showed good route running ability and with how deep this WR class is could be had in the very late rounds. Though if one of the top guys were to start to fall and there isn't one of the top 3 or so LBers available, taking one of them in the 1st isn't a bad idea. At TE we only have Jared Cook who although started picking up his production is getting up there in age and having a 2nd pass catching TE is never a bad idea but a very low priority. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
