For those random thoughts and discussions, when chat room just isn't there for you. At this point, we have to find a way to replace Seymour and Kelly...Lotulelei or Hankins would be a start...there are some guys like Sylvester Williams, John Jenkins, Jesse Williams, Sharrif Floyd, Sheldon Richardson, Josh Boyd and Kawann Short are all late 1st to early 3rd Round possibilities as well.
Let the rebuild begin. New Blood. Allen/Tarver blood.
I want a right tackle , dend, corner in that order

So do we think interior DL or pass rusher is still more important with our first pick?
There is no way that Reggie is going to be able to get rid of both Kelly and Seymour and have enough cap space left to sign some decent players for the other spots that is needed to be addressed to .
Best bet is decide which one is the better addition by subtraction for the team next year as both are going to cost $8 million in the cap hit to release them .
My choice would be dump Seymour and ride another year with Kelly .
Grabbing Sheldon Richardson gives us a replacement for Seymour .
Should be there in the lower 1st if Reggie can swing a deal to trade down from the likely Top 10 spot we will be picking .
Plenty of NT we can grab in the lower rounds to eat space for us .
Star yes is nice and could be a Ngata type but his Motivation is lacking for 60 minutes .
Is that because of maybe playing with to much weight ?
Is he playing with an injury ?
I was high on him but watching more games of him disappear in them is cause for concerns .
Hankins not the flashy play of Star is potential . But I see him more of a Pat Williams or Ted Washington career of being a nice run stopper DT .
Jenkins much like Sheldon both these guys are so light on their feet for the size of them that would be nice to see as the UT .
But then again got to consider the pass rush is bad to for us do you go for a Jarvis Jones or Mingo if they are there over a Star or Hankins if we don't trade down ?
Do you grab a OT and hope that you can control the clock with having long sustained drives .
After a game like yesterday it's so crystal clear: We have soooo many needs in this roster that prioritizing what to pick is going to be tough. DT, ROT, CB, pass rusher, ILB, S...we need it all.
I say start with the trenches and build from there. If Reggie can't engineer a trade down for more picks early on, just get the best lineman available (defensive or offensive, doesn't matter we need both anyway) and go from there.
