Haven't the foggiest about any prospects ATM.

As to position?  Safety seems like a more pressing need.  Amazingly, you could probably argue LB too.  After that, CB, RB and probably TE.  Might be the first year in what, 10 years, I'm not advocating OL.

Oh yeah, a real QB prospect and not just a 6th or 7th round shot in the dark would be nice too.

We suck because our drafts have been THE SUCK.

Yeah, a versatile S is probably more a need than CB, unless we're going BAA at the spot.

Definitely need some pass rush, so OLB is R1-2 IMO.

ILB is a big ?, with Foote in a contract year (age), Spence all busted up his rookie season, and Sly not getting any reps thus far. 

I think there's gonna be RB value we can find all through the draft.  Probably some real nice players R2-3, some pretty decent R4-6 though.  TE, Miller's under contract through 2015 and is HEAT, no one behind him. 

IMO, we ALWAYS need some OL guys.  Especially concerned about OT depth, and LT in particular since this is also Starks's contract year.  (Re-sign Max?  Slide Gilbert or Adams over?  Ugh.)  We've done a little better at OG, but Colon is made of glass.  Legs is JAG at OC/OG, and we could bring in a late round OC for fun.

QB, we need a Cousins type (was reminded how much Tomlin liked Cousins as he led the Skins to OT win), someone who can step in and play, and not shatter.  Or someone, like Schaub, we can develop and trade.  Or someone who might eventually take over for Ben someday.  Never know.
 
Kicking game has improved, amazingly enough.

Anyway, just starting to round up some preliminary stuff.
