    If you could only upgrade 3 positions thru this draft

    We need upgrades at many positions to become serious contenders (and the hope is we address and improve our deficiencies year after year). If we can upgrade only just 3 positions through this year's draft, which positions would be ideal to improve in your mind? OLine, WR, TE, DLine, DE/OLB (pass rusher), LB, CB, FS, other?And which combination of 3 upgrades will give us the best outcome next season?

    im looking at this post as upgrading the players we had in 2012, you may be looking at it as a free agency standpoint (without fasano) I feel like out of the 5 positions needed upgrades (WR, TE, OL, DB, DE), we would be a very solid team if we were to keep Fasano and the rotation we had a DE, and upgraded the other 3 through the draft.

    WR, CB, OL

    Yes, I'm referring to upgrades over this year's squad.

    An argument can be made that without better pass protection, Tannehill just doesn't have the time to wait and let his receivers run their routes, so shoring up our OLine is most needed.

    But then again, having more offensive weapons to choose from allows Tannehill to get rid of the ball quicker if there's pressure, so WR's and TE's should be our focus to upgrade.

    But on the opposite side of the field, we could use more pressure on the opposing QB's to get more sacks and force bad throws, so upgrading our DLine and pass rushing is a big need.

    But then a case can be made that if we have better DB's, the QB will have to wait in the pocket longer to find open receivers, which gives our rushers more time to get to him, so CB and safeties are what our primary targets should be.

    Of course, in a perfect draft, we could solve most of our present needs if every single player we draft turns out to be studs. But drafts are always a gamble and we'll be happy if half our draftees turn out to be starters or better.

    Me personally, if we could hit it rich at only 3 positions in this draft, it should be WR, OG, and DE. Obviously we need weapons at WR, and its almost unanimous among everyone here that we need to upgrade the talent level among the receiving corps. And a recipe for success is to apply lots of pressure on opposing QB, so pass rushing should be upgraded too. But I list OG as a primary area for upgrade through the draft because we also need to create holes for our RB's to run through. A good running game also helps our passing game more effective because of play action.

    Chance Warmack is one of the top players in this draft, and if he's there at 12 and is the BPA, then you take him. With Pouncey, Martin, and Warmack, we'll have the foundation of a strong OL for years to come.

    I'm assuming it'll be harder in this draft to find a solid OG prospect in the 2nd round than to find a solid pass rusher or a solid WR.
