Free Agency has come and gone and now the draft has come and gone. This roster is unlikely to be set yet as there are solid free agents out there still and trades are possible. But the roster is mostly set. And I see some serious work that has been done. It is time to dig in to position groups:
The OL Added Sewell and he will play ROT here. Crosy becomes the swing tackle. Jonah Jackson becomes the LOG. Decker, Jackson, Ragnow, Vaitai and Sewell with Crosby as the swing tackle. Interior depth is an issue. Sternberg will have to learn center to stick. With Crosby as the swing that is 6 guys and we keep 8 or 9 so there is room for depth competition. Adding Sewell to this group is fantastic. The OL looks much better with Sewell than without. In fact this can be a very, very good OL in 2021. I would LOVE to see Joe Dahl back as a depth guy.
RB. Added Jamaal Williams to Swift and K. Johnson. Johnson can block and that helps. Drafted Jamar Jefferson who I think becomes the #4 back. That is a pretty solid group now. I loved Jamaal in free agency.
TE with Hock, Josh Hill and pick a guy. We have options for the #3 and #4 guys but this is Hock and Hill as the 1/2 guys. I am fine with that as Hill is a good blocker. Better than James at blocking.
The DL is exciting. Brockers, Romeo back, Flowers healthy, Levi Onwuzurike, Alim McNeil, Penisini, Nick Williams, Julian Okwara and D. Hand? Austin Bryant maybe. Maybe Charles Harris? I know the rookies are going to have to play but there is a LOT to like there.
CB. Dunbar, Okudah, Amani Oruwariye, Corn Elder, rookie Ifeatu Melifonwu and maybe Mike Ford? There is a lot to like there too.
We have serious concerns at WR still (I like that rookie however), LBer and safety. ESP. at safety. But this club isn’t out of options in free agency or the trade market.
I would support looking at WR Michael Gallup for example. Adding Gallup to our WR group would go from question marks to very, very interesting. I like the rookie LBer we added but there are serious and legit concerns at LBer. Even if we cut/trade Taivai. And safety? Malik Hooker maybe? Tre Boston? Serious concern there.
There is a lot to like with this roster at this point. Hell, even back up QB is interesting. I didn’t exoect this draft but I understand it. I thin it make us better even if we emerged to serious question marks still at WR, LBer and Safety. I sure like the OL and DL options we added, I like the LBer and WR we added and I am very, very interested to see our late round RB who I think has a real shot here,
