- DB (either a CB or an S, depending upon McCourty's position, although both positions could use additions)
- RB (possible that this will be filled through free agency?)
- OL (depth would be nice at both at T and G)
- TE (depending upon their attitude toward Daniel Fells)
Agree on DB being the #1 need left by far. A safety or a CB would make a ton of sense. I'd also like a RB, but since we're past the point in the draft where you're looking at complete backs, they'd need to bring something to the table that Ridley and Vereen don't - maybe a big bruiser of some type. Some OL depth - especially at tackle where we're 1 injury away from making Cannon the starter at RT (not the worst thing in the world, just a lot thinner than I thought it would be with the Light retirement). They seem pretty well set at Guard with Mankins/Waters/Gallery assuming Mankins is all set to go by the opener.
I think a 3 year/2 million per deal with Fells means they're serious about him. And honestly, he's the 3rd TE as it is. If the Pats use another 2nd on a TE I'll roll my eyes, although I guess it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.
The one position of need I think you're missing here is a DL big. Neither Jones nor HIghtower can play on the line in a 3-4, and what they have there is Wilfork/Deadrick/Love/Fanene, and I guess Pryor coming back from injury. I could see another body being added there. If Kendall Reyes is around when they pick I think it'd make a lot of sense to throw him into the mix there.
