    Offensive tackle. Should be a decent one still available and they need to get stronger up front.

    Can't argue with Jennings. Perfect logic. We need another tackle and guard, and a center who can maul defensive tackles to establish a great running game. Of course, if the running back from Alabama is available he will be hard to pass up.

    Oline Oline Oline.

    Sure seems like Jennings will be on a set someplace after his playing days are done. Seems like a natural up there.

    dont really put alot of weight in jennings draft wants, just like I didnt put weight into favres wants, and thankfully neither did the team.

    I agree with him, Grant will be back and I think he has another solid year of production or two.

    I think it's funny how Sapp says we need to draft a running back and then says that "you need a veteran guy who can carry the load." Since when are we allowed to draft veterans????

    Clifton isn't getting any younger, that's for sure. I say O line is a big need. Our backs are adequate for now if they all stay healthy.

    Rodgers is the most important player on the team. With him we can potentially win any game. We protect him, and this team is in good shape for years.

    Offensive tackle.

    Right. Well, they did not stay healthy this year and they still ended up being adequate.
    In fact: The NFL's leading rusher in the 2010-2011 postseason was: James Starks.
    And we get Ryan Grant back, and if we want badly enough: Brandon Jackson. We're totally fine at RB.

    The sad fact is the league has become a pass first/run second operation. Pass protection is paramount, as is pass defense. Tackle/guard on offense (someone who can pass protect and run block) and pass rusher (OLB) on defense are our main needs.

    I worry about Tauscher more at this point than Clifton.

    Offensive line.

    While not all sacks are the line's fault, Aaron already has more than half of Peyton Manning's total sacks for his career.
