    Agree. I hope they don't use Cool Shades influence this time.

    If they just did that and fixed the ILB position, I’d consider this a successful draft.

    Right. This is a multi year fix, IMO

    How many starters do you think think we need to add to "build both lines" and "fix the ILB position"?

    My guess is that number will end up begin more than a reasonable number of expected starters from a given draft.

    I agree with DJ here. "Just" these three things is a multi year project.

    We've seen by several drafts by several different teams that you can fix an O-line in one draft. Rams, Colts ,Redskins come to mind.
    The D-line is bad and I expect them to use at least one pick on that D-line.
    Our line backing corps is woeful too. And I expect them to take one ILB.

    If free agency isn't used, then I too agree it will be a multi year project.

    that somewhat depends on how aggressive in free agency we choose to be.
    Steel Maniac's Time-Based Prediction: Lamar Jackson will be a bust and total flop in the NFL.

    What Actually Happened: Lamar Jackson became the youngest two-time NFL MVP winner ever.

    That depends on cap space, and redoing contracts to pay guys past their good years, or after they retire is dumb. I don't see any marquee names landing in black and gold.

    I agree that this is an ongoing multi-year project. I figured that starting last off-season this is a three year goal. Improve in 5 or 6 areas per year, and work towards contending by 2024. Next season we will have to see what some of the young guys can contribute: Leal, Loudermilk, Heyward, Robinson.
