    Three needs agreed.

    1.) DE and another DE just in case
    2.) A back up QB.
    3.) CB (D.Hall would have been a definite upgrade)

    Before the FA signings, WR would have been high on this list.
    It is amazing how BB has changed our view on this.
    I really see them drafting 2 DE's this year.
    Heck if the S crop wasn't so weak, the might've got 2 of them as well.
    I don't see them DRAFTING two DEs, I think they may bring in two one way or another, but not two rookies.
    Why?
    Because the FA pool is so deep or is it becuase they don't build through the draft and let rookies start?

    2 rookie DE's?

    Honestly, we have a perfectly capable starter in Robison, I completely believe that. This is only his SECOND YEAR... give him a shot. I guarantee that he won't disappoint.

    I think he will get a shot to start.
    Regardless, he and Edwards will be a force at RDE.

    My point is they still need to fill Keneche's roster spot and it appears Erasmus won't be 100% (again), that leaves two roster spots then add in the fact that Otis was a bandaid last year.

    I could see them take Merling (LDE) at 17 and then go for one of those 6'4" 250lb speed/edge rush guys as well in the later rounds.

    91 Ray Edwards DE 23 6-5 268 2 Purdue
    73 Otis Grigsby DE 27 6-3 260 2 Kentucky
    [s]99 Erasmus James DE 25 6-4 266 3 Wisconsin [/s]
    92 Jayme Mitchell DE 24 6-6 285 2 Mississippi
    96 Brian Robison DE 24 6-3 267 R Texas
    [s]95 Kenechi Udeze DE 25 6-3 281 4 USC [/s]

    90 Fred Evans DT 24 6-4 305 2 Texas State

    93 Kevin Williams DT 27 6-5 311 5 Oklahoma State
    94 Pat Williams DT 35 6-3 317 11 Texas A&M
    95 Ellis Wyms DT 28 6-3 290 7 Mississippi State

    Re: Three Needs The Vikes Should Address

    I see that your job is a difficult one defending the two DE position.
    I think that the best thing to do is make sure we get a high end DE in the draft, early.
    After that, if there is another DE that they have been scouting that they can get in the later rounds, well maybe.

    I hope C mac D is right about Robison, we need TWO of the guys on the roster to improve and contribute.
    KU's situation has really set the team back, nothing KU could do about it, can't blame him, but it leaves a huge hole, twice as wide as it was at the end of last season, to fill.
