    Should we expect more than a couple minor additions (perhaps at FB and/or LS) and jags for camp competition? Do we have money for anything else? I was hoping to re-sign Mike Wright, but perhaps we should be looking to an early pick instead to fill the position.

    I wouldn't be surprised if BB decided to use Sammy at FB this year

    When you put it like that, it seems we'd go for O-Line / D-Line in the draft... wow.

    Funny, but LB and future considerations on O-Line/D-Line now seem like the glaring draft needs.

    Hm. I'm hoping for a day one safety and OLB - after that, hard to say. Makes you wonder who won't be on that roster in September though. That's a pretty deep team, talent-wise.

    I still think Jason Taylor would be a great fit for this team. Questions is: can we still afford him?

    His signing would be the final piece. Then we could trade a couple of day one picks for higher ones in 2010. We could fill holes with our remaining three day one picks along with second day projects.

    Re: Is Free Agency All But Over Now?

    My draft priorities are
    DE
    ILB
    OLB
    WR
    S
    OG
    OT

    We have seven picks in the top 120 picks and seven needs, a nice match of needs and resources. We could even draft a long snapper in the 6th. I think there are three that are available.

    ================
    The vulnerable include at least the following, so there is plenty of room for upgrades:
    WR Ventrone
    RB/FB BJGE
    OG Yates
    OT O'Callaghan
    C/LS Connelly
    QB Gutierrez
    DL Adams
    LB Alexander, Ruud, Redd
    DB Richardson, Spann

    I have listed Springs as a safety, since without an addition, he would be our #3 safety, However, I expect the #3 safety to be drafted in the second round, as does almost everyone else.
