First we looked at the biggest roster holes in the AFC after the draft. So we’ll let you guess what this post is about.
(We tackled the quarterback situations earlier.)
Eagles cornerback: Joselio Hanson can be the team’s nickel back, but a team with championship aspirations can’t survive a crater-sized hole at cornerback. Third-rounder Curtis Marsh adds depth, but they’ll add a free agent. It would be a big surprise if they weren’t in on the Nnamdi Asomugha sweepstakes.
Giants linebacker: It wouldn’t be a shocker if they looked at inside linebackers like Barrett Ruud or Paul Pozluszny in free agency.
Lions cornerback: We loved Detroit’s draft, but they still have a massive hole at cornerback, even if Chris Houston re-signs.
Buccaneers cornerback: Yeah, they like the guys they have. They would like Asomugha even more.
Panthers defensive end: They could only fill so many needs in one draft. Look for them to aggressively try to re-sign Charles Johnson.
Seahawks defensive line: It was a bit of a surprise that no pick was made here until the seventh round. The team manufactured a pass rush last year, but can upgrade the talent.
Rams running back: G.M. Billy Devaney said on PFT Live the Rams had done a poor job finding a capable backup for Steven Jackson. Since they ignored the position in the draft, we fully expect them to go after one aggressively in free agency.
