In response to PatsLifer's comment:
The draft is deep in our areas of need. I expect this one to be as good as the Gronk/Hern draft.
I have seen 3 mocks that have us taking kawaan short at 29. He has good size and is a good run defender as well as interior rusher. Any thoughts on this? I called short about 2 months ago, changed my mind, but am coming back around. I like him playing next to jones.
im luke on short.
with 3 picks, if we get a pass rusher in fa, a take the top cb avail ie rhodes, then big outside speed wr with hands.
with no pass rusher in fa, im looking to either trade up to best pass rusher in reach (ie ansah) or grab the best avail. (lastly, there is the risky option of trying to nab carradine in rd 2)
top 3 needs pass rusher, cb, wr.
then o line, speedy cover lb, safety, dt
in that order.
schemewise a move to hittign bigger wr further downfield than 4-5 yards every down
josh learning hwo better to mix in the run and having multiple threats inthe game at the same time (including rb behind the qb) adn better gameplans (or replacing josh).
and on de, bb swicthing to more aggressive defensive scheme through the whole seaosn (against most teams).
