O-L... C Yea 31 sacks leads the NFL but about 10 of those are on Ben. I think they have done decent at protecting Ben, rush blocking has been weak however.
WR... A Best wideouts in the NFL in my opinion. No need whatsoever.
QB... B+ Slow start but has come on very strong last 6-7 games. Start looking for replacement in 2 years. Lefty will be back next year.
RB... C Passing much more and run blocking has sucked. I still believe we have a great back in Mendy. Isaac is a starter elsewhere. Moore is servicable with Dwyer and Batch who got hurt looks like a keeper.
TE... B With Heath, Johnson cathing a few balls here and there and with Saunders whom I like, we should be set.
DL... D+ Not stopping the run as well as in the past. Hampton looks like he is getting old. Hood has done notta, while Keisal has done a decent job. I have been impressed with McClendon and Hoke has had a solid game or two in replacing Hampton early on.
Still we are somewhat set for the future here with Heyward, Hood and McClendon.
LB'S... B- Need more splash plays here, Farrior getting older (last year). Slvester is still a mystery. Harrison is still a beast. Timmons solid but not making splash plays. Worilds only looks decent and Woodley is having a nice year. Need everyone healthy.
Could use a nice inside LB in the draft to replace Farrior as Sly doesn't look much better than a Backup.
Secondary... B+ Ike needs to make the pro bowl. K Lewis looks like he is making strides. C Allen is playing which is a good sign. He looks solid when out there and has potential to be a long time starter. Gay has come on of late making great plays on the ball. Texas rookie (fogot name) is out there also and looks like he is gaining playing time.
I would of thought this would be our area of need but with so many looking the part maybe we can get away with just looking in the 3rd round again for a stud.
I said all this to say...I LOVE THIS TEAM. Yes we are getting older but the guys play together like a family. We have the best WR core in the league. Great personalities like Troy, Keisal and Ben with some nice young players about to step up.
Those are my grades for the year... I say lets win number 7 then focus on the draft.
I believe ILB and O-L maybe where we look. Thoughts?
