S is the biggest need if maualuga, mj, and andre smith get resigned. A LB in a latter round should be looked at but not in the first round where we need someone to come right in and make an impact. WR is a bigger need than back up O-Linemen. There hasent been a true #2 step up yet as an outside threat, many posession guys but only AJ Green as a deep threat. It should go S RB LB WR DE OG CB OT
*This is only if we sign many of the free agents that we have*

Eh?

First off, for anyone who is using this, let's be clear here: OT = RT. We're set at LT.

Second off, CB and S are higher priorities since Hall (who isn't all that good as a #1) very likely could be a cap casualty ($7.5M salary in 2013). Chase Minnifield and Richard Crawford may work out as nickel/dime guys, but a solid corner still be a high priority. Safety was an absolute wasteland; Madieu Williams can thank Rahim Moore for taking away "Worst Safety Performance In a Game Award." Brandon Meriweather actually played well for us ... for the game and change he played (multiple injuries). Secondary is critical.

Third, how do you have DE as a need? I mean, if there was really good value at 3-4 end when you guys are picking, okay, sure. But that's not a position I would fill towards the top of the draft if I were the Skins. We are getting Carriker back from injury, Bowen was solid on the other side, and Jarvis Jenkins started to come back into form from his injury in 2011. We might be losing Kedric Golston (reserve RE, I believe), but I have a hard time understanding how that qualifies as the 4th highest need.

Interior linemen? Not really. We've been getting a bunch of guys in the past couple of years. They may not be household names but they fit the system. If you are doing a GM-style draft and you don't re-sign Kory Lichtensteiger, bad dog no biscuit.

Tight end ... it comes down to Davis. If you think he's a superstar, then it's probably not much of a need. Re-sign him and be done with it. I don't think he is (too much chucklehead to match his talent), but I'm in the minority. If he isn't re-signed, this could become somewhat of a higher need.

Running back ... I'd say not a need at all, but I wouldn't be surprised if Shanahan went and picked another RB from who knows where; probably he'd be competing with Royster for a spot, as I think Helu is going to end up as the third down back (if he can stay healthy). This is probably a late round, value pick.

Punter ... actually a bit of need. Rocca is 39 and coming of a torn MCL. I wouldn't draft for it (drafting a punter is a bit of a waste), but it is definitely something we'd have to consider.

Kicker ... for field goals? No. For kickoffs? Yes. If you can find a McAfee (punter plus kickoff specialist), then draft/sign him. Forbath's accurate but his leg strength leaves a lot to be desired.

Priority 1: CB, S
Priority 2: RT, TE (if Davis isn't re-signed)
Priority 3: ILB, 2nd corner
Priority 4: OLB (depth guy as I figure Jackson is going to sign elsewhere), DL (depth)
Priority 5: K/P

Rest of the positions should be mostly value picks.

I would say for the Browns the order should probably be OLB, CB, FS, ILB, TE, P, WR, DE, QB, OG.

CB would be 2nd on the Eagles needs. Unless Asomugha takes a major pay-cut he won't be on the team next year. DRC is a free-agent and I doubt he'll be worth his asking price. So the Eagles could potentially be without both of their starting CBs next year.

I'd say their needs in order are: S, CB, OT/OG, NT, OLB, DE, QB, C, WR, TE

Houston Texans Needs - Feb 2013

Tier One - Most glaring needs

1. WR - With respect given to other perceived positions of need for the Texans in the draft, I believe when the draft actually rolls around this is what the Texans will be looking for in the first round. The incoming draft class does not appear to have an obvious elite can't miss prospect at the top of the draft but there are many quality guys who could slide to the late 20's that would be a good pickup for the Texans. The FA class doesn't really have anything available that will be in the Texans price range.

2. NT - The Texans defense has been doing the 2-down NT thing in their 3-4 for the last two years. I believe they will take a guy fairly high (first two days) to fill a need on the defensive line, and I think they'll try to get a guy in the middle if there is one available.

3. RT/RG - The Texans ended with a rotation going on at RG and RT, and while they have a few young guys in place, there is a possibility that if the right guy is available they will take him, especially if they are an OT. There seem to be a lot of smaller but very athletic OT's available in the draft and the Texans could draft one for the right side of the line anywhere from the 2nd to the 4th.

Tier 2: Could get by without addressing

4. ILB - Ended the year with a garbage pile starting at ILB, however, with Cushing coming back I doubt the Texans invest significant draft resources to the position. A mid-round pick and a cheap FA or two might be thrown at it, but I would not be surprised if they wait until later to grab an ILB.

5. OLB - Specifically an outside pass rusher. There's a decent chance that Connor Barwin will leave via Free Agency, and Merciless and Reed weren't exactly mind blowing in 2012. I expect a lower round pick than an ILB to be used on an outside pass rusher, but that really just depends on which players are available and where they are ranked on the Texans big board.

6. PR/KR/WR - The Texans special teams was godawful outside of the Patriot playoff game where Danieal Manning was returning kicks. Keshawn Martin didn't really do much with his opportunities as the primary return man last year, and I think another late round flyer will be placed on a guy who did those specific duties very well last year.

Tier 3: The Rest

7. QB - This is probably Matt Schaub's last contract and the Texans have used late round picks on guys who had run a similar system in college or put up ridiculous stats at smaller schools.

8. TE/FB - The Texans like their FB's to be able to catch and with the possible departure of James Casey, it could possibly create a hole in which they might try to sign some guys to UDFA contracts to fill the role.

When making a mock, don't have the Lions draft for need, because we don't do that. Just give us who you think is the best player.

Eagles


Top tier

Oline-Kelce, Herremans, and Peters are all coming off serious injuries. Mathis, Herremans and Peters are all in their 30s. Watkins is a bust. Kelly is an okay swing tackle, but other than that we have no depth. We need a backup center and at least one tackle. One needs to start immediately, the other can sit.

Dline-Soap is a nice FA pickup but he's 30. Cox is our 3 tech, we're going to try to fit Curry in there too but it is a longshot. Antonio Dixon and Cedric Thornton are just depth, Dixon is barely hanging onto his job. We need a starting 5 tech, a 0/1 tech to develop, and probably more depth after that.

Safety-Chung and Phillips are decent pickups, but Chung is just depth and Phillips can't stay healthy. We need one starting caliber safety, and more the strong side type



Mid tier needs

Quarterback-Huge need, but I don't like anyone in this draft for us. I did like EJ Manuel when he was considered a 3rd or 4th round pick. Maybe like Matt Scott if it's the seventh round. So huge need, but not worth spending early pick on.


Cornerback-Ideal situation, Williams and Fletcher come right in and start, Boykin is our nickel, then Hughes/Lindley/Marsh fight for last two spots as dime/ST guys. Most likely, one of, if not both FA pickups will disappoint and I don't see a future Revis on this team. We don't need anyone to start, or even play nickel for awhile. We just need someone to groom and play ST, so low risk/high reward boom or bust kind of guys are the ones to look for.

WR-Maclin has a year left, Desean is on a contract we can easily cut ties with, Avant is what he is, and Cooper is just a reliable backup. Benn is a guy who hasn't lived up to his hype. Damaris Johnson fits Jackson's backup role fine, but Chip likes bigger WRs. We need one to potentially replace Maclin or Avant.


SAM-Barwin is our starter, but we need depth here. Every other linebacker position is set, including depth



Low tier


Tight end-Chip doesn't like FBs, he likes TEs. Probably will keep 4. Celek and Casey are locks. Harbor and Emil are there too, but neither is spectacular. Someone to develop and challenge for a spot isn't a bad idea



Not needs

HB
FB
ILB
Predator/Leo/Will
Kicker

49ers Needs

1-FS-by far our biggest need and were not looking for any in the box safety.

2-TE- We need a number 2 right now. They are important to our style of offense if VD gets hurt we are screwed.

3-NT- Glenn Dorsey is slated there at the moment if he doesnt work out there our D is vulnerable

4-DE Justin is a FA next year and getting older

5-CB

Other needs WR, SS, OT, KR, ILB

To update was Woz said, as of the Fred Davis resigning:
1/2. CB/S (both are so big that it doesn't matter which one come first)
3. RT (Massive logjam here. We need someone legitimate. Not Pashos, Trueblood, or Polumbus)
4. ILB (Fletcher's almost certainly gone after this season)
5. WR (Moss is likely gone following 2013, as well)
6. QB (I, personally, am not 100% comfortable with only having Griffin and Cousins as the only QBs on the roster)
7/8. Someone for kickoffs (both kicking and receiving, potentially)

Seattle's have definitely changed with the addition of Harvin, Avril, and Bennett.

1. Offensive Guard

James Carpenter will likely win out the left guard spot, but the team could really use some viable competition alongside Moffitt and Sweezy at RG, especially if Carpenter doesn't look as sharp as expected. Dallas Thomas or Kyle Long would be ideal picks.

2. Strongside Linebacker

Leroy Hill is gone and this might be the only position on the team where we NEED a new starter. The only reason it's lower than guard on this list is because our WLB is generally a 2 down player at best while guard is a vital part of our offensive scheme. Ideally looking for an athletic player that can rush the passer like Khaseem Greene or Sean Porter.

3. Nickel Cornerback

Walter Thurmond needs competition at this spot at this point. He's by far the best guy on the team for the spot, but he's been hampered with injuries and we need to find a young alternative. Leon McFadden would be a great selection for us.

4. Receiving Tight End

Zach Miller is terrific at what he does, but we need a guy that can split out in the slot and cause mismatches. A guy like Jordan Reed or Gavin Escobar would be terrific selections, but I doubt we upgrade the position after round 4 because Anthony McCoy is still good at what he does.

5. Defense Line

Just depth all the way around. Especially at UT. Bennett will start there this year, but he's on a 1 year prove it deal. Red Bryant needs to bounce back from injury and we could be looking for a backup at LDE for him. Even some big run defenders in the middle could be options behind Mebane.

Tennessee Titans

1.) Right Guard - Just because its our top need, doesn't mean they take one in the 1st. In fact, it's unlikely they draft one that high after signing Levitre to a big deal.

2.) Defensive End - They have two good starters in Morgan and Wimbley but the depth behind them is horrible. When they leave the game for a break, the pass-rush instantly becomes horrible.

3.) Cornerback - Just like DE, Verner and McCourty makeup a good duo, but the depth is horrible and the Titans love to use their nickel package. They signed Pollard and George Wilson which great improves depth at safety which will help the CB's out a lot. Last years 4th round pick Coty Sensabaugh was solid but needs work. He could turn into a good CB but I'd rather not take a chance.

4.) Wide Receiver - Washington is likely gone and unless Britt finally breaks out this year, he'll be gone after this season as well. That'll leave us with Kendall Wright, Damian Williams, Lavelle Hawkins, and Marc Mariani. That's horrible.

5.) LB Depth - The starters are set. They have a good young trio in Brown, McCarthy, and Ayers but McCarthy has had injury concerns and may need a spot starter behind him. The only other LBs on the team are Moise Fokou, and special teamers Patrick Bailey and Tim Shaw.

STEELERS NEEDS


Priorities

1. FS - Ryan Clark has continued to play well despite his age, but he's now entering the last year of his contract, and it's highly unlikely that he'll be extended considering he'll turn 35 around the time to 2014 season starts. The Steelers need to find a FS for the future.

2. WR - Depth is not nearly the problem that many people believe it to be. Even if Emmanuel Sanders leaves, Jerricho Cotchery can take his place as the slot WR. The only urgency the Steelers face is finding a new primary WR to replace Mike Wallace.

3. ILB - The only ILB who is known to be part of the Steelers' long-term plans is Lawrence Timmons. Larry Foote, the other starting ILB, will not be with the team much longer due to age. Sean Spence was supposed to be his replacement, but his career might be over before it even began after suffering a catastrophic knee injury last pre-season. Depth behind Timmons is questionable as well.


Recommendations

4. DE - Ziggy Hood has been uneven as a starter, and he's entering the final year of his contract, so if his performance doesn't improve much, he could be replaced. Another DE might also give him some competition for the job.

5. RB - Rashard Mendenhall and Chris Rainey are both gone, which leaves Jonathan Dwyer, Isaac Redman and Baron Batch. Dwyer has potential but is lazy. Redman is OK, but has no outstanding physical skills. Batch is primarily a pass-catching back. It's not certain that any of them are suitable to be the primary RB, so it wouldn't hurt if another was brought in.

6. G - If the Steelers don't re-sign Doug Legursky, then the interior offensive line has a depth problem. It's also a bit a bit of a gamble to rely on Kelvin Beachum, a seventh-round draft pick, to be the starting LG, so another G should probably be drafted as an insurance policy.

7. OLB - Jason Worilds deserves a chance to start in place of James Harrison, and the coaching staff is high on Adrian Robinson as well, but there's no depth behind LaMarr Woodley, and there should probably be a backup plan in case neither Worlds nor Robinson can cut it as a starter.
