Agreed OL and DL is by far our biggest problem, but I would watch for a DB as well.
Hey all. I agree...The OL MUST be addressed this year. Here's a couple possibilities considering our current draft order:

Rnd 1: Jason Smith, OT, Baylor (i actually think his stock will cool off)
Rnd 2: Fili Moala, DT, USC
Rnd 3: Sean Smith, FS/SS, Utah
Rnd 4: Anthony Parker, OG, Tennessee
Rnd 5: DeAngelo Willingham, CB, Tennessee
Rnd 6: Ray Feinga, OT, BYU
Rnd 7: Jeremy Navarre, R-DE, Maryland

You can put Mack or Boone in Rnd 1 should I be wrong, and Smith's stock continues to rise...but its a LONG way to April.

How about Brannan Southerland in the 5th, I really like that kid.

Jorvorskie Lane is another possibility.

Those are my top to FBs I personally would take Lane he is a better runner than Southerland, but it doesn't matter how good they are if Arians doesn't use them

We could easily pick Kreider back up from the Rams. Problem is, as fanman stated...it only matters if Ariens uses him. Tomlin and Ariens seem pretty dead set in perfecting that two/three TE set (not that any of us are looking forward to that). This basically means, we need to have an offensive line similar to the Patriots or the Titans. A line that CAN give us 5-7 seconds after the snap to release the football.

Our current offensive line is only effective when we have a strong rushing attack that takes pressure off the passing game. If the run fails, the pass is too easily defended.

Lane has weight problems and that will be WAY too risky (IMHO) to take him in any round before the 4th. And he won't be there in the 4th for us. I think we've got all the WR's we need. Limas needs to learn how to catch a jump ball, and Baker needs to improve his blocking...and BOTH need improved route running. Washington has saved us this year. He's been a great receiver for us on important 3rd down plays. I hope we resign him.
