Default Re: Draft. What's our biggest need?

We've got needs all over the place, but we've got decisions to make first that will dictate where our draft priorities are.

If LeBeau goes at the end of the season (there's no way the Rooneys will fire him, or allow him to be fired mid-season) then Tomlin may look for a DC who's a 4-3 guy (like Tomlin used to work with), in which case you can scratch nose tackle from the list of needs. Then there's the cap situation - which is dire. If we need to lose some vets to get cap room, then that too informswhere our drafting priorities are.

Right now, the priorities to me seem to be ILB, WR, all over the Secondary and DL. If we can't find the cap room to pick up serviceable OL help in free agency, then that goes on the list too. If we pick top 5 (and it's looking increasingly like we might) then if Mariota is available, we have to take him, unless the staff see something in Landry Jones I dont.
