I was just thinking and trying to figure out the best position group on the team, currently. Last year it seemed like the D-Line was primed to be loaded with good depth, yet it was perhaps the weakest position group on the team. Now, I sit here and cannot come up with a position group that I am completely satisfied with.
QB - Back to back back injuries to the starter. Garbage back ups still.
O-Line - Average at best. Might lose our best lineman to FA. Both tackles are blah.
TE - on paper it was better. On the field it was not. If TJH comes back 100% it should be ok, but not great depth at all.
WR - perhaps the least of my concerns, which sucks, because it’s the last position group to fill on a team in my opinion. Same guys who can get the job done, but severely lacks elite speed and someone to take the lid off the offense.
RB - nothing but question marks. Still no bell cow or true home run threat.
Interior D-Line - huge weakness. New hole with Snacks bailing.
DE - Same. Could be moved from mediocre to a strength if we get Young.
LB - screams mediocre. Can’t say I like much of anyone at LB. Maybe Tavai will develop into a solid player. Can’t wait to upgrade Davis.
CB - if we sign Slay it will still be ok at best. Lose him and it’s another glaring weakness.
S - well below league average. Got some young pieces. Hoping they make that jump right now or it’s just a group of guys. Hoping they surprise me, but I’d like to get a ball hawk who can change the momentum of games in 1 play.
How do you see it? Of course, an elite pass rusher could help the secondary immensely, so someone like Young could realistically improve 3 position groups at once. Still seems like a lot more holes than we were facing a few years ago.
