Get a WR2 that pushed Robinson to WR3. That upgrades 2 positions.
Get a workhorse RB that can at least share the load with Akers and push Williams to 3rd down/change of pace back. That upgrades 2 (or 3?) positions.
Get a TE1 that pushes Higbee to TE2. That upgrades 2 positions.
Get a couple OL that are good enough to make the starting 5. That upgrades the starting OL and probably everyone from the 6th man on down.

Remain convinced now that they will spend picks on the ballhandlers for the offense.
More, and more they have guys they are retaining for the offensive line. While I had thought that the Minnesota Center was on the radar, the adjust on Noteboom, the deal with Shelton, Bruss' expected on time recovery, and some overture that for now Anchrum is homegrown developed and worthy gives me a new take.

A quartet of RB, TE, WR, QB is on the needs list.
Akers entering the final year of his deal
ARob a chance that he's a not rostered come summer.
QB 2 or even QB3 can't end up the way it did in 2022
50/50 shot that both Brian Allen, and Tyler Higbee are cap cuts post June 1st

Sure they will use draft commodity for CB, and Edge. They seem to always, always bring an abundance of DBs into the group.
For the OL, I use the old pattern of not taking one early, added to the glaring wish lists, and it just doesn't stick they way it did.

While it won't stun to see an edge and corner with the first 2 picks, I could see the middle of the draft complete about the offense. And it needs to be.
McVay knew they were going to be kneecapped by the salary issues.
Can't afford anyone in FA, so how to keep the coach invested?
