Oakland Raiders Team Needs for 2013 NFL Draft

April 22, 2013 in Team Needs

1. Defensive Tackle (x2)

2. Cornerback (x2)

3. Defensive End

4. Outside Linebacker (x2)

5. Guard

6. Safety

7. Tight End

8. Wide Receiver

9. Inside Linebacker

10. Offensive Tackle

11. Quarterback

12. Running Back

As you can see, the Raiders need about every position on the depth chart and times two for some positions. While I don’t usually believe in solely best player available (BPA) approach, this team could use it since almost every position is in such desperate need.

Starting on the defense, the Raiders need a complete overhaul on this side of the ball. With the exception of defensive end Lamar Houston and safety Tyvon Branch, the Raiders need upgrades at every other starting defensive position. The most drastic areas of need are defensive tackle, cornerback and outside linebacker. In addition needing this many starters, their depth is also a cause for concern.

Offensively the Raiders aren’t much better, but they do have at least a couple good starters. They still need two starting upgrades along the offensive line at guard and tackle, as well as a new starting tight end to replace Brandon Myers, who left in free agency. With Matt Flynn as the new quarterback, this need has dropped some, though a long-term option is still on the list.

Kansas City Chiefs Team Needs for 2013 NFL Draft

April 22, 2013 in Team Needs

1. Offensive Tackle

2. Inside Linebacker

3. Guard

4. Cornerback

5. Tight End

6. Nose Tackle

7. Running Back

The Chiefs addressed many of their needs with resigning their own players and adding some key pieces via trade and free agency. Though they retained offensive tackle Branden Albert via the franchise tag, they lost Eric Winston, their other starting tackle. With Albert only under control for one season, offensive tackle remains a high priority both short and long term. Luke Joekel will be in high consideration if the Chiefs keep the first overall pick.

Another serious need for the Chiefs is their starting inside linebacker next to pro-bowler Derrick Johnson. The Chiefs have tried a number of combinations and none have succeeded, and it’s the last true hole in that defense. Expect them to try and fill this when they’re back on the clock in the third round.

After those two primary needs, Kansas City could use competition and long-term solutions at a number of other positions, including guard, cornerback and tight end. In addition for depth they can bring in another nose tackle and a back-up for RB Jammal Charles.

Houston Texans Team Needs for 2013 NFL Draft

April 22, 2013 in Team Needs

1. Wide Receiver (x2)

2. Inside Linebacker

3. Outside Linebacker

4. Offensive Tackle

5. Guard

 

The Texans have been searching for a complementary weapon to Andre Johnson for quite some time. And their lack of one last season led to their exit in the playoffs. Expect the Texans to grab at least two receivers, as they also look to replace the released Kevin Walter.

Houston has had back-to-back seasons where they lost one of their starting outside linebackers to free agency. Though they have some depth, it’s fairly unproven, and they’d be wise to add an early to mid-round pick to the position. Inside the Texans could use depth as their defense began to collapse when Brian Cushing went down due to injury.

The Texans last year struggled to maintain a consistent offensive line due to both injuries and free agent defections. Houston could look to bolster their line with both a guard and a tackle in the mid-rounds.
