So I think we have much work to do in Free Agency and our Draft board should look for youth & depth. These are the needs as I see them.

CB.....Ike Taylor's eventual replacement
FS.....Clark's replacement
SS....Carter's replacement
ILB.....Farrior's eventual replacement
OLB...need depth behind Deebo & Woodley
RB......Parker's replacement
WR...Hines future replacement
NT.....Hampton's eventual replacement
DE....Youth & Depth behind Aaron Smith & Keisel. Ziggy and Sonny were a good start
OT....Hills is our only back up. Colon is an RFA
OC...Hartwig's eventual replacement
