Do we go DL? havnt looked at any yet, but any help stopping the run would be a big help for Lee/Smith. TBH cant see us doing much in FA as usual, trying to build a D with rookies is a big chance. The big board is going to change a lot as we know-even before the combine.
No doubt they add an OT at some point, but I doubt it's a premium pick/free agent. I'd move on from Chaz Green, maybe Byron Bell too. They inspire no confidence whatsoever if Tyron goes down. I expect they just sign another veteran and hope he's an improvement over those two, plus maybe add a developmental guy in the later rounds of the draft.

This is a good DT class, and guys that fit the system too. Wilkins (Clemson), Hurst (Michigan), Phillips (Stanford), Taven Bryan (Florida), to name a few who could be 1st or 2nd round picks.

I think a lot will depend on if Marinelli stays or goes regarding the draft on D. He's never really valued the interior of their D line (or hasn't seen any prospects he's like enough anyway).
