If we are drafting a franchise QB there is no way we're leaving him exposed to 3 rookie starters on the O-Line so expect at least 2 free agents signings there.
The D-Line is already beefed up with Bryant and Marks re-signing and hopefully a healthy Miller, although I still expect a pass rusher in free agency.
With the lines solidified with veterans I think they'll chase splash players with the draft picks - a franchise QB or two, LEO candidates, tall receivers, a bunch of running backs, a 2nd NT, 2nd TE and starting fullback are needed too. Great draft for running backs and wideouts so expect plenty of UDFAs to get a look see as well.
Re-sign: 3T Marks 4yrs, $17m; QB Henne 2yrs, $8m; OT Bradfield 2yrs, $3m; OT Pasztor 4yrs, $7m; TE Harbour 2yrs, $2m;
Free agency: 5T Bryant 4yrs, $17m,OC Dietrich-Smith 4yrs, $17m; OG Schwartz 4yrs, $17m, DE Johnson 5yrs, $50m;
3 QB Teddy Bridgewater - when the smoke clears there will be only one franchise signal caller
39 WR Kelvin Benjamin - big target, essentially a TE at 6ft5in 241lb teach him to block for trick plays
70 TE Austin Serefin-Jenkins - few character concerns but a better blocker than Ebron and Amaro
101 OG Dakota Dozier- powerful, small school prospect who is a great technician.
110 RB Lache Seastrunk - explosive 3rd down change of pace back to complement our bell cow.
132 1T Justin Ellis - underrated 1T with penetration o back up or replace Miller.
138 LEO Kareem Martin- Poor man's Quinton Coples, light hasn't quite come on but in Gus we Trus.
147 RB Lorenzo Taliaferro - big back 240lb + who can run, convert to FB because blocking is good.
163 OLB Adrian Hubbard- 6ft6in athlete, will play rush linebacker in the 2nd LEO role.
199 RB Tyler Gaffney- Workhorse running back we need.
