Here's my best shot at it: let the debate begin. Please keep in mind this is a real-time chart and subject to free agency/draft changes: QB (3): Brady, Cassell, OPEN RB (4): Maroney, Faulk, Morris, Evans WR (5): Stallworth, Caldwell, Welker, Gaffney, Brown (Jackson on PUP) TE (4): Watson, Brady, Thomas, Mills OL (9): Light, Mankins, Koppen, Neal, Kazcur, OCall, Hochstein, OPEN, OPEN TOTAL OFF: 25 DL (6): Seymour, Warren, Wilfork, Wright, Green, Smith LB (9): Thomas, Vrabel, Bruschi, Colvin, Izzo, OPEN, OPEN, OPEN, OPEN S (5): Harrison, Sanders, Hawkins, Wilson, OPEN CB (5): Samuel, Hobbs, Scott, OPEN, OPEN TOTAL DEF: 25 K (1): GoKo P (1): OPEN LS (1): Paxton Therefore, the slots that are "open" (meaning there is no one who should consider themselves an entrenched incumbent there) remain: --Third string QB --Backup G/T --Backup G/T --Backup OLB --Backup OLB --Backup ILB --Backup ILB --Strong Safety of the Future --Dime Corner --Backup Dime Corner --Punter There are, in many cases above, players under contract. I just don't consider those slots to be defaulted to them. Some combination of existing players, new free agents, and rookies will fill these holes. Looking at this real-time depth chart, the biggest need remains the absolute disaster waiting to happen at LB. Hartwell would be a decent move, but they need to find several younger guys to fit the mold. There's also some depth issues in the secondary, especially at safety.
