Cross-posting from the Gronk thread:
Phragle and I discussed this in the draft thread but there are two large tight ends who are excellent receivers in ASJ and Jace Amaro. If either is available when they pick in the late first you have to think both are on the table. You can get interior offensive and defensive line guys later on in the draft, even round two. But huge athletic receiving and potential blocking tight ends are a rare bunch and I think worthy of a high pick.
Right now there are a ton of DL guys projected on the 2014 roster. They've got veterans Wilfork, Kelly, and Sopoaga, youngsters Siliga, Chris Jones, and Vellano, Pork Chop Grissom and Armond Armstead, who spent the year on IR/NFI, and Forston on the practice squad. We don't know how healthy Wilfork or Kelly will be at the beginning of the season, Sopoaga figures to be a likely cut, and some of the young guys are no doubt fungible, but I'm not sure they need to add here. I think either they use a high pick on a potential star (a penetrator or long-term Wilfork replacement) or leave the position alone; using a fourth rounder on a depth guy seems pointless.
TE is a different situation. Hoomanawanui and Mulligan are JAGs and not even under contract next year, D.J. Williams is likely another JAG, and they can use a complementary Hernandez-type even if Gronk is 100% healthy next year.
OL is a question mark. Can Cannon take over at RG? How much do they like Kline? I also think it's fascinating that while Kline has been active over Barker, they've been willing to sneak Kline through waivers twice but have kept Barker on the active roster all season. Is Zusevics (IR) an option? What about one of the practice squad guys (Devey, Cave, Mattes)? And the big question mark is how much they like Wendell and whether they're able to re-sign him at a reasonable price.
