I think we need a shut down CB, not sure if there is one in the draft.

I have to go with the most glaring weakness last year- pass coverage.

After re-signing Clark and having Polamalu healthy, we need to address the secondary at the corner position. We can't run without an o-line, but we can't win if we keep giving up big plays on defense.

We have a number of pressing needs, but having to choose the biggest one...I say CB.

Lol, CB are you guys serious? Ike had one down year, Willie Gay just went through his first full year of starting, and we have 2 CB's behind them with a wealth of potential that havent had much of a chance to prove themselves yet. Interior Linemen. That's definitely the biggest need. Oh sure, we had a potent passing attack, and Rashard ripped it up, but Hartwig is probably gone next season, along with Trai Essex. The only reliable linemen we have are Kemoeatu and Colon. And only Kemo plays inside. A bolstered rungame will protect Ben and keep our defense fresh, which is greatly needed for our fire zone blitz schemes. But i'll take the BPA anyways...

Our secondary as a whole..SUCKED. That unit alone cost us more games than any other. And I'd go for a tackle before I'd take a guard as I STILL don't think colon should be on the outside.

I voted corner, but my gut says BAP. C, NT, OL would be just fine.

Dan Williams NT in the 1st.

Chris Cook CB in the 2nd

John Jerry T in the 3rd

I just went with CB but if Troy goes down again, I just pray we don't see the mess we saw this past season.
