    7 picks is not enough to "fix" the D, and we also need a center. I expect 3 draftees will be starters due to our lack of depth, not day 1, but early in the season. I think we need to re-sign DJ Williams. Getting younger is all well and good, but we can't have a bunch of new guys without veteran experience on the field. Bostic and Greene need guidance and any rookies we bring in will need even more. Hopefully PP is the Dline guru we need, Reggie Herring can get Bostic and Greene on track, and hopefully we get some good signings in FA.

    I think all 7 picks will be on defense and all 7 will start right away. I know, I'm a trouble maker. :)

    I say one, maybe two realistically. I could see a first rounder like Clinton-Dix and a step up guy on the DL somewhere later. If we let Melton go then 2 is more likely but we can look over FA either.

    I vote 1.

    2013 should have shown Emery's plan of attack: draft developmental players, and back them up with vets to start until players develop. Unfortunately, injuries kind of forced his hand this year, putting in rookies as starters.

    So, i suspect our 1st round pick will start, and the rest will be backups under development, and we will acquire some starters via FA/re-signs.

    For realistic guys at 14, Jornagan and Clinton-Dix would basically be penciled in as starters from the minute they were drafted IMO...I'm sure there are more but my eye is on those 2 right now.
