Another offseason we have failed to address the pass rush properly. I hate you Thomas Dimitroff. I tried telling people that we'd ignore it again this offseason but of course Mike Smith got all the blame for the last two offseasons.

Before anyone says we will draft a pass rusher at number 8, Rookie pass rushers tend to struggle until year 2 or 3 and one guy isn't going to solve it.

I can see 3 or 4 teams taking a pass rusher before we pick and if we end up taking Shane Ray this offseason will have been a complete disaster.

I'd quite happily take White/Cooper or trade down if Beasley is gone.

Top 4 rounds most probably EDGE, FS/CB hybrid, OG, RB.

Good to see Julio signed to a 5 year extension.

A lot of money but well worth it.

Just a shame the O line will probably cost him and Matt Ryan finally recognizing their talent....again

On the subject of Julio - now that Cleveland has cut Phil Taylor all 5 of their draft picks which they got in that trade are now longer on the team. To add insult to injury the 3rd round pick they used in trading up for Taylor turned into Justin Houston!
