Re: Still plenty of needs tbh

Defense needs fresh blood at CB and hopefully FS. Guy like Baker who can play FS and maybe nickel CB in a pinch would be a real nice fit. But I would guess they're gonna bring in a CB so he'll have a year onboard when they let Tru walk next year. And they need CB for competition too, gotta get some fresh legs in here.

Also think they need a NT. Not necessarily a space eater, but someone to allow for Brock kicking outside to 5T, and who would make the rotation better with less dropoff.

And of course LB is a need still on the interior. IMO Ogletree is better served as the weakside ILB where he is a nice fit and more protected from OL traffic. Right now they have him slated for strong side, which is essentially MLB and is best served with someone who can beat blocks. Ogletree's only real weakness is that. Moving him over to weakside ILB also upgrades us from Barron. A lot of people use Denver's ILBs as an example of how Wade can use smaller guys at those positions, however they forget Denver's LBs had demonstrated more physicality than the Rams' LB duo has. So I still doubt Barron in there, yeah.

Offensively they still need a WR who knows how to run a route tree, not a raw physical freak type. McVay is going to try to get the matchups he wants through numbers vice a dominant number one type guy. Don't have enough as it stands so at least one wideout.

TE is risky right now. I think they have a diamond in the rough in Williams on the depth chart, but they're not going to get to see these guys live and will be looking at the position in this deep TE draft.

And lastly Center. Big need, without a doubt our top need in my mind. Lot of uncertainty in the move-over of depth chart OGs Wichmann and Donnal, so they need to bring in a center in this draft.

So totaling it up:

1. Center
2. WR
3. CB/FS
4. TE
5. FS
6. ILB
7. NT

Assuming they can find starter types in this draft in rounds 2-4 that means 3 of those needs might be met. Assume maybe they hit on one in rounds 4-7 and the UDFAs brings us to 4 needs being met. Looks to me like we're gonna have holes going into the season.

  I'd put TE right up there or at #2
