Can't we just enjoy this season first? Already talking about offseason moves sounds redonkulous considering the start we have going here.

corner, the safety opposite Vaccaro
We also need more depth on the line

I think 0-line will be the biggest priority in the offseason, however.

DL? Not really. We're 2 deep at every position and I wouldn't touch a lineman unless someone we loved dropped. Cam pretty much doesn't come off the field. Bunkley is solid at NT (overpaid, but can't be cut) and Jenkins has looked great. Foster has been very good, although in a limited sample size. Walker is plenty good enough for a backup, and Hicks can play any position on the line. Pretty sure the only reason we carried more than six 3-4 linemen/4-3 DTs is because of injuries.

And for the whole team's needs, in terms of priority, I'll go:

1) C: DLP has been bad, but so have his guards, this can be addressed in mid rounds

2) CB: again, Greer getting older

3) OT: with a deep CB draft, probably should be our first pick. I hope we have a bye (preferably the 1st seed, obviously) locked up heading into week 17 so that we can see him play some. That or Brown missing one game against a bad team

4) S: Bush has been decent enough, but I don't see Jenkins or Harper on the team next year unless they take a very cheap one year deal

5) OG: Evans has been bad, but hurt. He'll bounce back. Grubbs has been a disappointment, and his contract makes him uncuttable next year. Hopefully Evans coming back causes a chain reaction on the inside, which wouldn't shock me in the least.

6) WR: I expect Moore to be a cap casualty next year. Colston is aging and pricey. Meachem is on a one year deal. I like Stills and Toon, though. Kind of feels like a position where you either get a stud in the first round or don't bother drafting one. A cheap, risky, high upside vet (someone like Manningham) could be a good choice.

7) ILB: Hawthorne is wildly inconsistent and Lofton is solid but overpaid (another that can't be cut until 2015). Would only address for depth or if a stud drops to us.

8) RB: PT and Sproles are old. If Kenjon Barner were to drop to us in the 2nd round I would take him and cum everywhere. Still, a position we can wait until 2015 to address.

9) OLB: I'd be happy with Juneyah, Butler, Haralson (cheap re-sign) and Tez.

Wouldn't bother with QB or DL unless they were by far best player available.

I'd still want to see how IAQ performs.
The safeties are playing a lot better than I'd expect.
Vaccaro effect, no doubt.
But hell, Jenkins is playing better than he has in years.

I do expect Harper to be gone though.
