    Also confirmed by one of the newspaper web sites, but not one I'd link to. ;)

    Watch for a fullback, but that means that the team has essentially no needs entering the draft. Free to target 'top available.'

    Coaching can take care of that skill deficiency.

    While we have bodies to fill OLB and S, I would still qualify those as needs.

    In addition to FB, I still think that we have needs at S, OLB, ILB, WR and DE.

    Re: Gasper: New Long Snapper

    This guy is pretty good. He's been their long snapper for 6 seasons, and obviously has been snapping it for Neil Rackers who has had some crazy success there.

    He also showed that he can snap in pressure spots this season, which is very important.

    Re: Just heard WEEI Flash the signing of LS, Nathan Hodel

    Certainly needs for depth.
    The team clearly needs a pass-rushing OLB.
    The team is weak at WR depth - their #3 is really a #5 type.

    However, they could play a game with this roster.
    They do not lack a starting center, a QB, a nose tackle.

    They can take a safety in the first or third, or even fifth, and do OK.
    They can take an OLB in really any of their top three or four picks.
    They have the flexibility to move around, or simply take the best value.

    Believe it or not, Wikipedia already has it. I wish I knew who was keeping it current--he's like lightning.
