I'm drafting 19th overall. I need some pieces to fill out a team - an inside linebacker, a big, modern tight end and maybe a safety. But I need a right tackle desperately. Put it this way: If I don't get a starting-caliber tackle, the offensive line is a big problem, which means the season is again threatened, which means coach Joe Philbin's job is threatened, which means my job is threatened.
So I have to be assured of getting a right tackle to plug in and play immediately. That's the over-riding thought of this draft.
