The Bears…

1a. Cornerback…Peanut Tillman & Tim Jennings are both free agents next offseason and will be both the wrong side of 30 by then…we don’t have any kind of depth behind them who could be long term starters…I would expect Tillman to be resigned but if Jennings has another outstanding season I doubt we invest the money in both at their ages.

1b. Defensive End…Next season Julius Peppers is owed $16.3 million this year and even more next year…with Jay Cutler due an extension along with the likes of Henry Melton & Corey Wootton who offer us longer term options on the Dline we could have a situation where Peppers is cut…if he is we will need a new DE as pass rush is key in our D.

2. Centre…Roberto Garza is done and will be a weak link this season let alone next…he is a free agent and I can’t see him being brought back…in Aaron Kromer’s protection schemes the middle of the protection is more important than the tackles and Marc Trestman has stressed the importance of keeping Jay upright.

3. TE/Slot WR…Marc Trestman’s offence is all about attacking the middle of the field…Martellus Bennett is a major upgrade at TE this year and if Earl Bennett can stay healthy he could be outstanding in this scheme from the slot…but you can never have enough weapons and unless another TE or WR steps up during the season I would expect us to go after another weapon to attack the inside of the field.

4. Defensive Tackle depth…as I said before pass rush is key in this scheme and grabbing another DT is never a bad thing.

5. Offensive Line depth…even after drafting Kyle Long & Jordan Mills plus picking up Jermon Bushrod & Matt Slauson in FA there is still work to be done…another guard or tackle would make plenty of sense at this point.

For the Cowboys

1. OG - Livings and Bernadue are not the answer. I hope a young guy like Leary steps up but if that does not happen Guard must be addressed high in the draft and seeing as how Romo is a 100m qb we must protect him.

2. DT - Ratliff and Hatcher will be 32 and 31 yrs old next season. We do have Lissemore and Crawford but neither guy is proven. DT will be a huge need next season

3. DE - Spencer is on the franchise tag and I highly doubt we pay him a big contract with guys like Dez, S.Lee coming up soon. Ware will also be 32 and DE is going to be a big need.

4. S - Safety has been a problem for yrs. We did draft JJ Wilcox in the 3rd this yr and Matt Johnson in the 4th last yr. Hopefully these guys or Church are the answer but if not Safety will be a need yet again.

Outside of that I think we are good around the board. We got Romo, we should be set at rb, wr, te. Our LB's and CB's are outstanding.

Oh my, I forgot OT. D.Free is garbage and unless he steps his game up to 2010 status or Parnell breaks out OT will also be a need. Basically imo the Cowboys should spend the entire draft in the trenches. Draft 4 d-lineman and 3 o-lineman. I would not have a problem with that at all.

Kansas City
The Chiefs are an enigma as some of their fans believe the team is loaded and poised for a playoff run. I’m not one of these people. I expect a significant improvement, but nothing extraordinary. I’m expecting 6-8 wins and to be picking somewhere between 10-16.

The Alex Smith trade has left KC without an R2 or R3 pick, pending an 8-8 record. Depending on how things shake out, a trade down is a possibility.

QB
I don’t think Alex Smith is a long term answer. If the Chiefs tank, it means Smith, once again, suffered a serious injury or he is not very good. If the Chiefs are picking top ten a QB could be the pick. Otherwise they might take one on day 3.

RB
Huh? “What about Jamaal Charles?”, you ask, “You do know KC used an R3 on Knile Davis as a complement, don’t you?”

Yes. I expect bigger things than we’ve seen ever before from Charles. So what’s the problem? His contract. (http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/kansas-city-chiefs/jamaal-charles/) The Chiefs really got a bargain deal on Charles and if they were smart they would rip it up after the season. If not, a holdout could be forthcoming. It’s a very remote, minor day two possibility that the Chiefs would take an RB under these circumstances, but money changes everything they say. This would be a nightmare to we Chief fans.

WR
Beyond Dwayne Bowe, the cupboard is bare. Fragile Donnie Avery will not be the answer. Unless Jon Baldwin breaks out, WR will be a high priority next offseason. Sammy Watkins should be a consideration. 2014 free agent, Philly WR, Jeremy Maclin could be an option.

LG/RT
I suspect the Chiefs do not come to terms with Branden Albert. He is either traded to a needy team during the season or after, or allowed to walk via FA in 2014.

The Chiefs OL is very unsettled at this point, regardless. Jeff Allen had a bad, bad, bad rookie year. Donald Stephenson is rumored to be a possible LG solution this year, as is Geoff Schwartz. Stephenson is too tall for the position (6-6, 312). His future is at OT, but is he a starter? Schwartz is a stop gap, valuable backup.

Andy Reid loves his OL. Even if the questions are answered by incumbents, don’t be surprised if he takes one sometime. Philly OG/OT Todd Herremans makes a perfect 2014 FA signing too.

DT/DE
Tyson Jackson may not be a bust entirely, but he hasn’t lived up to being the #3 pick in the draft, either. The Chiefs should cut ties with him in 14. Thus 34DE will be a necessity, unless little used Allen Bailey busts out. I like him, but who knows? Regardless, many folks think Dontari Poe’s upside is wasted at NT and would like to see him used more like Haloti Ngata. We’ll see what Reid and Hal Sutton think. In that 10-16 range, Stephon Tuitt DE or Louis Nix III DT fit nicely.

MLB
There’s a lot of hope that R4 pick Nico Johnson is the long term answer as Derrick Johnson’s complement. I don’t buy it. MLB could be a day 2 consideration in KC. This, not considering the Chiefs could sign Desmond Bishop.

ROLB
Some say Tamba Hali’s play has slipped. I don’t agree. Justin Houstin is just stealing some of his sacks. Still, Hali is not getting younger and his cap hit is getting larger. I doubt this warrants R1 consideration. I also don’t see a good prospect in the target range. C.J Mosley or Karl Van Noy are not NFL 3-4 prospects at this point. Still KC must plan for the future without Hali in a year or two.

CB/FS
The Chiefs have a need at FS. Kendrick Lewis is average at best, has injury issues, and is a 2014FA. However the answer may be on the roster. Sean Smith has not been very special at CB thus far in his career. It could have been a scheme thing. I believe he has upside at FS if he doesn’t work out at CB. Dunta Robinson may play FS at some point too, albeit a short term solution. Even R5 pick Sanders Commings is a remote possibility.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is a remote R1 possibility or a CB if the Chiefs move someone. More than likely this could be addressed on day 2.

The Packers needs will be determined by who we bring back from FA this upcoming offseason:

TE: Jermichael Finley is a FA, we won the Super Bowl with little to no TE production, but I would still think TT will want a contributing player there, but if none are available early, he won't reach for one.

WR: Thought we would take some receivers early this year, but the board allowed us to patch up RB and OL depth at the expense of WR, so this years draft could be where we go that route. Guys 6'2 or under who run good routes and are not body catchers are what GB usually looks for.

S: Will all depend on Jerron McMillian this year, if he's a stud, this isn't a need.

DL: Got Worthy and Daniels last year, Jones and Boyd this year, but Raji, Pickett and Wilson will all be FA's soon, might look to pick up another guy here if someone else falls.


Uh hello? You left off the 1 position you need to upgrade the most... QUARTERBACK!
Lol, obviously I'm kidding. But seriously how do you consider WR a possible need for your team? Jordy, Cobb, Jones is bout as good as it gets. I think you guys will find a way to keep em all unless Jones repeats 2012 cause then he will earn starter money somewhere else.

NEW YORK GIANTS:

WR: This depends on who gets re-signed. The Giants have great WRs right now but Louis Murphy and Hakeem Nicks are both free agents after this year. Cruz and Randle would still be around but there would be no no. 3 guy and barely any depth so the team would either need to re-sign Nicks, Murphy, or both, or they need to draft a receiver or two.

G: LG Kevin Boothe is a free agent next year and with Justin Pugh now at right tackle there isn't really anyone to replace him on the roster. Pugh has been really impressive at RT and I think that will continue so I doubt they'll move him.

LB: Inside or outside, the Giants just need linebackers. The entire unit is just average with no real difference makers and not a lot of potential. Drafting a stud in the first or second round would really help. Jacquain Williams and Mark Herzlich probably have the most upside but neither is going to be a star, just solid contributors. The team could use a star.

DB: Some extra depth would help. Corey Webster and Antrel Rolle are aging, Stevie Brown is injured and Terrell Thomas has been healthy so far but who knows what will happen. Bringing in another young guy in the middle rounds would help.

For Vikings:

Tier 1:
NT
LB
OG

Tier 2:
LB
DE
RB
S
WR
CB

Tier 3:
TE
FB
OT
C
P
K

Not on the list right now, QB, it is hard to place, if Ponder plays like last week, he is top priority to be replaced, and I'd fully expect the Vikings to move up, if Ponder plays like the end of last season, Houston and Packers where Peterson did well, but Ponder led the offense to the wins, then QB is a tier 3 need. Right now if I had to guess, I'd say he'd be a tier 0 need at the end of the season and we'd need to replace him, but we've played one week thus far.

Steelers:
Steelers will draft Offense in the 1st round. Steelers always alternate Offense and Defense. This is an Offense year.

1) Left Tackle. Mike Adams is a nice player, he can really excel at RT, so best to improve two positions. Marcus Gilbert shouldn't be starting. OL woes have been our #1 concern for way, way too long.

2) #1 WR. A tall matchup nightmare.

3) Tight End. Everyone but Heath is a bum. We need someone who can step in if Miller goes down. We have no other TE who can catch.

4) CB. Depth is a concern here, we should find an eventual replacement for Ike Taylor, who doesn't have much time left.

5) IOL. Foster is an ok fill-in at LG, but we can do better. Pouncey's knee injury came at a time where he will be going into next year as his last on contract. Steelers would want him to prove it before giving him a new contract. He either returns to form and prices himself out of here, or can't get it back, and we need to find his replacement.

Oakland
QB: Pryor is developing a miniature Tebow-esque type of following. But the reality is that he's still extremely underdeveloped as an NFL passer. I have little faith that he's going to become a Super Bowl caliber QB.

RB: McFadden is in a contract year and doing nothing to earn said contract. A cheaper alternative is needed. Someone with the vision and lateral agility that DMC lacks would be nice. I'd start looking in Rd3.

WR: Rod Streater is a nice player, but not a true #1. Denarius Moore is inconsistent, and sometimes just plain bad. I joked on a Raider fan site that we should maneuver up in the draft to take both Lee and Watkins. The more I ponder that joke, the more I lean towards thinking that might actually be an idea. In any event, a go to receiver is a must.

TE: Mychal Rivera looks like a keeper, but not a starting TE. Nick Kasa has been invisible so far, but his upside makes him an intriguing prospect for the future. If a legitimate featurable TE is available, I wouldn't hate the idea of nabbing him.

OG: We're bleeding to death at LG, and Mike Brisiel is only a stopgap on the right side. I'd address this position as early as Rd2.

DT: Walker and Sims are good players on 1 year deals. Whether or not we retain both remains to be seen. Depth behind them is basically nonexistent. Depending on what we do with Sims and Walker, this could be a 1st round priority.

DE: We all love Lamarr Houston, but he's never going to be a sack artist. Jason Hunter is a very good base end, but he also struggles to get to the QB. Depth consists of fringe players. If we drafted a DE who could also play with his hand up in Rd1, that would be just fine.

LB: Nick Roach is an OLB masquerading as a MLB. He may be allowed to continue there. If so, I could envision McKenzie wanting someone to replace Kevin Burnett in the starting lineup outside.

CB: Mike Jenkins and Tracy Porter are on one year deals. I like Phillip Adams as a prospective future starter along side DJ Hayden. But, with his concussion history, keeping him relegated to subpackages may be the better move. We may retain one of the two current starters, but we'll be needing another body here.

Kick/Punt Returner: Jacoby Ford will be a free agent, and has underwhelmed thus far. He also struggles mightily to stay healthy. McKenzie and Allen both preach the importance of having a strong special teams unit, so I could see them burning a pick on a return specialist.

Buffalo Bills needs:


Top Tier

LG - Colin Brown is just downright awful, easily the weakest link on our OL

CB - Stephon Gilmore is a stud, and we resigned Leodis to an extension this year. We are hoping that Ron Brooks can take on that nickelback spot and Nickell Robey has been playing well, but anyone hurt and we are in trouble.

2nd Tier

TE - Scott Chandler is finally finding himself in this offense, but behind him we have nobody.

OLB - Kiko has MLB locked down and Manny Lawson has done pretty well at the one OLB spot, but if Bradham can't step it up, he could be a candidate to be replaced.

RB - C.J. is the clear cut starter, even though he is not doing the best of jobs right now, but Fred Jackson will be 33 before next year and Tashard Coice is an UFA

DE/Pass Rusher - We brought in Jerry Hughes to pass rush across from Mario, and Alex Carrington can do well when he is not hurt, but this team probably needs one more pass rusher.


3rd Tier


QB - We have E.J. Manuel and UDFA Jeff Tuel, after Kolb having to more than likely retire, we probably will take care of a #2/#3 QB through UFA. Be that as it may, it is still a need.
