I know it isn't realistic for the whole draft class to make an impact day 1, but I thought we did a great job of meeting value with needs.
Our biggest holes pre-draft were:
-LT: If Brown could stay healthy, this would be way less of a need, but that's a big if that may never happen. Armstead is there physically to play day 1, it just may take some time mentally to take the jump from Arkansas Pine-Bluff to the NFL.
-SS: Harper probably gets more flack than he deserves, but the bottom line is he can't cover, and he is overpaid. Vaccaro screams SS from what I've seen from him. He seems like he'll be able to do everything Harper can, plus cover.
-OLB: Adding Rufus and Chase Thomas to an already group of young pass rushers looks real promising. In a perfect world, I'd like to see a vet here too, but the position is already pretty crowded, and likely at least one of them should stand out.
-NT\D-line depth: With Bunkley penciled in as starting NT, and Hicks as the back up, getting a true NT became a big need. IMO, Hicks would be a waste a NT. Putting Jenkins at NT, allows to rotate him and Bunkley there, and put Hicks at the end and let him destroy shite out there.
-WR depth: Morgan looks like he is devolving into a nice deep threat, but the depth at this position isn't what it was a few years ago. Adding Toon off of a redshirt year, and Stills, we should be good there.
I'm having trouble finding too many holes after this draft. Being picky, I think ILB and maybe CB depth stick out the most. Reddick as a UDFA was a steal, and could be some big help there, and if White continues to devolp, CB may not be a big concern at all. Thoughts?
