My offseason moves

I would really love to do the BROP but I just do not have that kind of time so I am going to do a modified version that does not include all the money portion of it. I will discuss our roster cuts, free agents, signing free agents, and the draft. Let me know what you think about the moves for the offseason.

Break down of each pick

Pick #30 – Major upgrade at TE adds an excellent weapon For Manuel

Pick #41 – Starting MLB will allow Alonso to move to WILL; Skov will be better against the run

Pick #54 – Will be the starting nickel corner from day 1 and if injury could easily be #1 or #2

Pick #73 – Big possession type WR we have plenty of speed at the position already

Pick #94 – A more traditional 43 DE both good against the run

Pick #105 – Will develop into eventual starting OG for now swing OG

Pick #137 – The bigger back that we have been missing currently around 230 lbs bump up to 235+

Pick #169 – Developmental player at OLB should atleast be special teamer Pick #201 – Someone to challenge Moorman in training camp

With free agency, I wanted to add some veterans to the offensive line while still keeping the OL young so they would have a few years to stay together. Strief is the only free agent that I am looking at that would be over the age of 28. Those free agents should really help to bolster the OL and make it very solid next year. Also wanted to bring in a 43 DE since we are changing on defense. Either of those free agents should be able to compliment the already star studded Dline that we have. We had one of the youngest teams in the NFL last year and I wanted to keep it that way so I did not want to make any huge splashes in free agency because I wanted to make sure that they would have enough money to extend the contracts for 2015 free agents.
