NFL Draft: Defensive needs
After watching the 'Phins all year, it came to my attention (and everyone else's) that as much as we need a QB, a few defensive drafts would definitely worked. What positons would (or wouldn't) you draft, and why (not)?
CB: I thought Reggie Howard was going to be a nice fill-in for the CB hole created by the trade of Patrick Surtain. Unfortunately, I was wrong. We need a very good, shutdown CB. However, with Will Poole and Shirdonya Mitchell recovering from ACL injuries, I'd wait for the second day.
DT (Preferably NT): A Tim Bowens/"Truck" Traylor type. Many have called for a future D-Line featuring Vickerson, Wright, and soon to be draftee Ngata. Why not?
Defensive End: We drafted Matt Roth. Not exactly an OE, but I have a feeling he'll be one hell of a D. Left End. Now all we need is DE that could play the OE and Outside linebacker position.
Safety: Maybe... Yeremiah Bell and Travares Tillman could be around for years and Lance could be around for a couple as well. Plus, two other DB's on the PS (that had been the only two people on the PS that hadn't been released off of it at all) Jack Hunt and Deandre Eiland could definitely help the position next year, along with Norman Lejeune (I'll take a look at him a lot more).
LB: Unless we could find an LB that could play great in the 3/4, I don't think we should draft a linebacker. When Seau and Thomas (God bless them) retire, I see a LB Corps headed up by Pope, Crowder, and Spragan.
Your input please!
