Re: Offense or defense this draft?
I say both!
We could have as many as 18 players leaving. We are not going to fill all of these slots with the draft.
IMO, we need strength and depth along both lines, as well as two impact level OLBs to replace Harrison, and Woodley, unless he gets his humungus posterior shrunk down to playing weight, and plays like he actually means it more often than his typical 4 plays a game ( How about 10 Wood?? That's not too much to ask, is it?). We take care of those issues, everything else will fall into place.
OK, a new punter unless Butler can get his average over 43 yards a pop. Have I ever mentioned how well he sets the ball for placement kicks????
Seriously, when you see that much improvement out of your kicker, especially one that never was much good before this season, it is something you got to consider. Maybe that 4-5 yards Butler's been shanking 'em short, is worth the extra 20 points a year your kicker brings in. In Suiesem's ( pardon the spelling) case, maybe as many as 30 points this year?
