We don't need a top notch WR, we just need depth.
I dont think we really NEED anything in the 1st. But some are more needed than others. OLine, DL (pass rush and D stop), LB, WR in that order.
Red Bryant and Hill could both be replaced. Our Dline is good on paper, but wasnt that great overall. On and off. I say we bring Jones back, move him back to the outside, and draft a replacement for Branch
Jaye Howard was drafted to clone Jason Jones @ the DT spot and he is having issues with the playbook. Jones sticking around would greatly help Howard's development
I GOT THIS!!!"THE SEPARATION IS IN THE PREPARATION"
We need to keep our Dline intact while try and add to it.
Why? It wasn't that good. Just cause it sound good doesnt mean it is.
Red had 19 tackles, no sacks this year, but people still assume he is good. He is good at making some big plays and blocking kicks, but that's about it.
Then keep jones inside and replace Red. But our Dline was very inconsistent, and a true DE opposite Clem would help a lot. Doesn't mean Red can't still play. Maybe move him back to DT at times too.
I think you are just making assumptions without actually seeing what happened.
I've been seeing a lot of mock drafts with Barkevious Mingo, Sam Montgomery, or Jarvis Jones slipping to the late 1st round. Would you take a shot at Jones? Honestly if he's there, I think it's a no brainer. You add him and along with Irvin, we would have an absolutely scary pass rush
Id prefer someone bigger. More of a true DE. Someone who can start full time and stop the run and the pass, not either or like we currently have.
I've also seen some mocks with us drafting Anthony Barr in the 3rd round. This guy could be our blitzing OLB that we need. Our why I want to draft Jarvis Jones so badly.
If he doesn't get tackles, he isn't stopping the run. He had 32 last year, so he regressed.
Even if he isn't supposed to put up big stats, he isn't putting up much of anything
