In the Starting Line-Up
what specific position would you like to see addressed?

In my opinion, I'd like to see the following position(s) addressed, in the following order:

(1) interior DL
(1a) interior LB
(2) edge defender (DE/OLB)
.
.
.
(3) in-the-box safety (a bit of a luxury)
(4) WR/TE (I consider this to be more of a luxury too)

With McClellin presumably returning from IR at some point I think LB is slightly less of a priority than interior DL. I obviously like Hightower and his versatility, and I'm higher on Van Noy than others seem to be. With McClellin's return I assume Van Noy will be freed up a bit and asked to do less, thus increasing his confidence and production and slightly reducing the need at LB.

Any interior defensive linemen folks here on high on? Or, do you feel another position is more pressing? I'd be curious as to folks' thoughts on a potential trade prior to the deadline.

Well without Branch we are thin in the middle. But it's about run d so the answer may be in the ps unless branch gets straight.

I'd like to upgrade the DE spot. When flowers slides inside in passing downs if we want to keep HT off the line at least sometimes all we have is wise and marsh at de.
Mcclellin may solve that too. Either by him getting reps there or freeing vannoy too.
It seems like Akeem Ayers would have been a good fit but skill levels can change a lot in 3 years at his age and position.

Joe Thomas

Browns are a dumpster fire right now and Thomas is getting older. Would be great for us for the next few years and I'd think we could get him for a 3rd.

Do you move him to right tackle? I don't get the o-line woes, its the same damn line from last year.

Why ever give the Steelers a franchise QB?

I'm a bit hung over and there might be some alcohol left in my blood ...

Seriously TJ Watt is a beast and I think Brady will play until he's 45 so I doubt it will happen after trading Brissett but I'd hate to see Jimmy G walking for nothing in FA or Brady in another jersey ...

Jimmy wouldn't go without top compensation and Brady would retire before wearing another Jersey unless it's San Fran in my opinion.

Low priority target and most probably a year too early for it to be cheap but I would try to throw a mid round pick at the Texans for Braxton Miller. Keeps being inactive for them but has the physical skills to be another quick twitch player like Edelman down the line.

Just browse some of the discussions we had on the draft board about him.
