    Here is my list of needs (in order) for the Packers:

    1) ILB - Both AJ Hawk and Brad Jones are free agents this year and both had awful years, losing time to Sam Barrington and Clay Matthews (ideal fit - Eric Kendricks, UCLA)
    2) DT - BJ Raji had his second consecutive season ending injury and Letroy Guion was just arrested on drug possession charges (ideal fit - Malcolm Brown, Texas)
    3) CB - Davon House should return, but there will still be a void left by the inevitable departure of Tramon Williams (ideal fit - Kevin Johnson, Wake Forest)
    4) OL - They like to draft versatile linemen and there is potential that Bryan Bulaga does not return (ideal fit - Jake Fisher, Oregon OR Cameron Erving, Florida State)
    5) S - Haha Clinton-Dix impressed as a rookie, but the starters alongside him has been shaky at best (ideal fit - Jeremy Cash, Duke)
    6) KR/PR - The special teams play for Green Bay finished 32nd in the league (ideal fit - Tyler Lockett, Kansas State)
    7) RB - James Starks can only stay Eddie Lacy's backup for so long (ideal fit - David Johnson, Northern Iowa)

    Jacksonville's needs in my mind for the 2011 offseason:

    1) Free Safety

    Yes, I should give Carey another year and athuridon may hate me for it, but the Jaguars secondary was not very good this year. Our corners constantly got beat by the better passing teams in the league and Carey was a major cause. Our corners may have played better if they had safety help. The Jaguars could trade down in the first for Rahim Moore or get Quinton Carter in the second if he is available. I would like Moore because he is a ball hawk and will help our defense get turnovers. He is a reach at 16th overall, but if he pans out it will be worth it. That is why I say we should trade down, which will be easier because we do not have a top 10 pick this year.

    2) Cornerback

    Mathis and Cox did not play well this year. With our safety problems added in, we ended up with a bad pass defense (29th I believe). Cox deserves another year to develop and could become a good corner. The Jaguars still need a corner who is play maker and helps their defense like Mathis did in his prime. The Jaguars wanted Revis when he was coming out of college, but the Jets traded in front of us. Jimmy Smith has the potential to be like Revis and upgrade our secondary. Prince Amukamara would be a good addition also because he can play safety if needed. I don't see Amukamara falling past Houston for that reason though. We could trade down for Brandon Harris or Aaron Williams, maybe even Jimmy Smith.

    3) Linebacker

    We had one good linebacker last year in my mind, Daryl Smith. And that Jaguars may let him test the free agency. The Jaguars need depth here and may even look at this position in the first round. Akeem Ayers and Justin Houston both may be available, but they project as 3-4 OLBs. I could see Houston going to the Jaguars, but as a DE not OLB. There are a lot of players that the Jaguars could look for. This could go ahead of cornerback as a need, but knowing Gene Smith, he should be able to find talent easily so I don't rank this as our 2nd biggest need.

    4) Quarterback

    David Garrard is on the wrong side of 30. He should start for the Jaguars for another two to three year. However, the Jaguars need a QB to develop. This class has a lot of QBs that won't be starters straight away, but a developmental QB in the 3rd or 4th would be good. Andy Dalton would be a good prospect to draft. He is a Gene Smith kind of guy. Whenever I think QB for the Jaguars, I think Dalton or Pat Devlin. If a QB like Jake Locker falls to us in the 2nd, we should pull the trigger or else we should just wait for a QB in a later round.

    5) Interior Offensive Line

    Our interior o-line is very old. Vince Manuwai is 30 and Brad Meester is 33. We need depth and sooner is better than later. Gene Smith should be able to find a raw prospect that our coaching staff can develop in the latter rounds. Out of the top propsects, Mike Pouncey and Rodney Hudson are two guards that I would be happy with.

    6) Wide Receiver

    I don't have this as high of a need as other Jaguar fans because we will likely sign one of our WRs. Jason Hill showed potential next year and I would rather have him over Mike-Sims Walker (I think of the hailmary pass every time I see his name). Jason Hill can be a deep threat, but we need a #2 WR. One of the players on the team could step up next year and be that number two. Mike Thomas could move to the slot if we got that number two WR. It would allow him to use his speed even better than he did this season as the number 1/2 WR. Torrey Smith, Leonard Hankerson, and Vincent Brown are all prospects that I like. Brown would be the best one and should be available in the 3rd or 4th round.

    There are a lot of free agents this year and I don't see the Jaguars spending big money on any free agent this year. That is why I did not include and FA names. I think they will try build mostly from the draft enless they can get a player for a cheap price like Bob Sanders.

    1. Free Safety- Alan Ball is terrible. Akwasi Owusu-Ansah MIGHT be the answer, but I doubt it. There's talk of moving Terence Newman to FS, but I don't see it. He's not a good tackler and he cannot lay a hit to save his life. They won't pass on Rahim Moore if he's there at #40 overall, and guys like Deunta Williams and Robert Sands are options later. They could pursue Michael Huff, Tanard Jackson, or Eric Weddle in free agency.

    2. Right Tackle- Marc Colombo is a joke. This would be #1 if not for the slight possibility that Sam Young is the answer. They could trade down and pursue Nate Solder or Gabe Carimi, and Tyson Clabo, Jammal Brown, and Jermon Bushrod are free agent options.

    3. Nose Tackle- Jay Ratliff will be moved to defensive end. The team likes Josh Brent, but they can't expect a 7th round supplemental draft pick to be a starter in his second year in the league. They could get a stopgap like Kris Jenkins while they wait for Brent to develop, but I'd rather see them go after Paul Soliai in free agency or Phil Taylor in the draft.

    4. Cornerback- Some people insist this is #1, but I disagree. The team has to hope that Mike Jenkins will play better next year; they have too many needs to address to assume he won't. And depth isn't an issue, with Orlando Scandrick, Bryan McCann, and Alan Ball as a nice 3-4-5. Still, Terence Newman is pretty much done, and they won't pass on Amukamara if he's there at #9. Jimmy Smith, Aaron Williams, Brandon Burton, Curtis Brown, Rashad Carmichael, etc. are some Day 2 options, though they can't realistically expect any of them to immediately replace Newman. They could also look at Asomugha, Bailey, Cromartie, Jonathan Joseph, Ike Taylor, or Brent Grimes.

    5. Defensive end- As I said earlier, Ratliff is more than likely being moved to DE. But that doesn't cure everything. Marcus Spears, Stephen Bowen, and Jason Hatcher are all free agents. None of them played that well, and it's doubtful that more than one of them will be back. They won't pass on Dareus if he's there at 9, and look for them to address their depth issue regardless.

    6. Guard- They can get by with Leonard Davis and Kyle Kosier as their starters next year (or Montrae Holland, if Kosier isn't re-signed), but both are in their 30s. They need to find future starters. Rodney Hudson, John Moffitt, DeMarcus Love, Marcus Love, James Carpenter, etc. are all Day 2 draft options.

    7. Inside Linebacker- Keith Brooking will be cut. Bradie James is solid but unspectacular; he's also 30 and entering the last year of his contract. I love Sean Lee, but they can't ask him to be an every down player until he proves he can stay healthy.

    8. Power Running Back- Marion Barber will be cut. But the team needs to find someone new to convert short yardage. John Clay or Stefan Rindley are late round options.

    9. Slot Receiver- Regardless of whether or not Roy Williams is cut, this offense is sorely lacking a dynamic talent in the slot. Williams, Dez Bryant, and Miles Austin are all vertical wideouts who are 6'2 or taller.

    1. WR. Browns need an impact player to open up the entire offense. Will take Green if there. Could also take Jones but will probably go with a WR at #2 if Green gone.
    2. DL. Going to a 4/3 and may take any of the top 5 DL that are still left if Green is gone.
    3. Could take CB Peterson if Green is gone and Peterson still there. A top 2 pick.
    Browns will be looking for WR, DL, CB, OT, and OLB in the rest of the draft.

    CB, S, OLB, OL is ok, but every one could probably be upgraded, WR3, DE prospect cause vadenbosch is kinda old. Maybe a more solid RB to play more downs, because I don't think Best is an everyback guy.

    I know the thread is "2010" team needs but since some people have done 2011 draft needs and I'm bored, here I go.. To help people that could use this for mocks, I'll include some possible picks for the positions in the first 2 rounds that I think are realistic.

    1. Defensive End

    Without a doubt the biggest need on the team, the Saints simply didn't get a pass rush using four guys last year. Alex Brown was terrible last year and Will Smith is aging and declining in skill. Everyone knows the Saints were after Jerry Hughes last year, and after the ghost-like pressure from the ends this year, this need becomes even more prevalent. Possible picks: Ryan Kerrigan, Adrian Clayborn, Cameron Heyward, Cameron Jordan, Justin Houston, Pernell McPhee.

    2. Outside Linebacker

    Obviously. This has been a need for seemingly forever, and eventually the team HAS to address it. Dunbar and Clark both performed well this year, so that could delay the OLB pick for another year, but it's still a huge need because those guys can't be relied upon. Possible picks: Greg Jones, Mason Foster, Bruce Carter, Quan Sturdivant.

    3. Running Back

    I was against this at first, but now I'm all for it. Reggie Bush should be cut, he's a $12 million dollar prop on offense that doesn't play half the games. Payton is annoyed with PT's injuries and he could be shown the door, and he almost was at the deadline. Ivory has an injury history that dates all the way back to his college days, plus Payton has a huge issue with backs with fumbling problems. We need a stalwart that can handle the load. Possible picks: Mark Ingram, Mikel Leshoure, Shane Vereen, Jordan Todman.

    4. Offensive Tackle

    A need that no one really seems to mention when bringing up the Saints, but our tackles were absolutely terrible this year. I'm going to assume Charles Brown will be the eventual LT, so a mauling RT to replace Stinchcomb is needed. The team has always overlooked his performance because of the fact he is a valued leader and liked among the team. Possible picks: Gabe Carimi, Anthony Castonzo, Chris Hairston.

    5. Defensive Tackle

    Not as much of a need as people make it out to be. Obviously, Sedrick Ellis is a beast, but then everyone seems to automatically assume there's no one next to him. Remi Ayodele had his best season as a pro last year and the team really likes him at NT. I doubt he gets replaced, unless someone falls. Possible picks: Stephen Paea, Muhammed Wilkerson, Drake Nevis

    Rams. I'll leave off RT because they are stuck with Jason Smith and I'll leave off receiving TE because I don't think there is one out there that is worth drafting where the Rams will be drafting except for Kyle Rudolph in the 2nd but I doubt the Rams will draft 2 receiving targets with their first 2 picks.

    1. WR. Danario Alexander is an injury risk and looks really awkward as a deep threat. He's either too raw or just flat out has bad hands. Laurent Robinson can't get separation and is nothing special. Amendola is decent in the slot. Clayton and Gibson are alright possession receivers. Gilyard can't even get on the field. Too many question marks and a stud WR for Bradford is something that the Rams offense needs moving forward. They are the slowest dome team you'll ever see right now and it just doesn't make sense. Avery will come back but they'll need someone else as well.

    2. OLB. They basically have a bunch of guys not even worth mentioning playing outside linebacker. They bring a lot of hustle but aren't great at tackling or covering. They seem to get exposed less than the secondary, though, in the Rams aggressive defense. Drafting 2 OLBS is a possibility.

    3. RB. Steven Jackson won't last forever and can't do everything. He's been inconsistent and is probably too bulky for his own good. The Rams could be looking for a replacement in the early rounds or more likely a speedy back to alternate with Jackson. I seriously doubt they would draft Ingram in the first but I think they would certainly draft Leshoure or Ryan Williams in the 2nd.

    4. DT. Rams are solid against the run on the outside but can get exposed against the run down the middle quite easily. Robbins had a great year but is old. The Rams need a run stopper next to Robbins and could potentially even look at a replacement to Robbins down the road. Spags seems to like using Selvie on obvious passing downs so I'm not sure how much of a priority this will be.

    5. S. Craig Dahl probably isn't a long term solution. If Atogwe doesn't get kept then this becomes a much bigger need.

    6. G. The Rams have generally been good at 3rd and short but the interior run blocking as a whole has been pretty mediocre. I think this is a slightly overrated need.

    7. CB. Bartell has been doing a good job but #2 WRs have been destroying the Rams all year. The biggest culprit is Dockery who should get cut. Fletcher has gotten better as the year has gone on but they could use another CB somewhere in the draft. The Rams secondary has been giving up huge plays to average WRs all year. They are still young, though, so filling the CB gap will likely be better served in free agency. Their need is in finding a veteran CB and not a raw one.

    49ers needs

    1) QB - It's clear that neither Troy Smith nor Alex Smith is the answer. I have a feeling Alex will be successful down the road with someone else, but we need a new face.

    2) CB - Clements has had an okay year (compared to last year), but he's getting up there in years and he's lost a step. We need a long term starter across from Spencer, and we have no quality depth to speak of.

    3) OLB - We need a bona fide pass rusher. Ahmad Brooks finished 2009 well, but hasn't played well this year (coming off a lacerated kidney). LaBoy was a pleasant surprise, but is very injury prone. Haralson is inconsistent - some nice plays, but also lots of stupid moments and penalties. Lawson is not a good pass rusher; I'd like to resign him but he might walk as a FA and join a 4-3 team where he could be a great Will.

    4) S - We started the year thinking we had 5 quality safeties. Of the starters, Lewis "retired" and joined the Rams, Goldson has stunk. Mays and Reggie Smith still look promising, but have made youngster mistakes that have really hurt us. Curtis Taylor looked good in camp, but he's on IR now. Depending on the progress of Mays and Smith, we may address this need in FA rather than drafting another young talented S, especially if Goldson is re-signed.

    5) left DE/DT - our Sopoaga/McDonald tandem is certainly serviceable and we have quality depth on the DL, but could be upgraded if we get a good value in the draft.

    6) RG - Again, Chilo has been serviceable but not lived up to expectations and could be upgraded. We do need OL depth.

    NY Giant just some thoughts on possible needs

    1. LB- Other then Boley they have no one that can defend the pass. Goff is medicore but is solid as a 2 down player. Bruce Carter or Travis Lewis is the best fit. Quan Sturdivant or Nigel Bradham not bad 2

    2. CB- after having a solid year on an awful pass defense. TT has been torched this season in a better one. Ross will be gone when his contract is up and has never lived up to being a 1st rounder. The type of corner will be decided by who the DC is .If Fewell is still here I could see the Giants going with a different type of corner then what has been there MO for years.The Giants have one of the biggest secondaries and probably the tallest from top to bottom in the NFL "There shortest corner is 5-11". The way Fewell has utilized his corners though this year he hasnt made that size an asset. A corner that excels in zone and can play off the line with speed to break on the ball should be obtained. If Fewell is gone I expect another 6-0 200 pound corner. If anyone knows a corner that fits the earlier descrrption Im all ears

    3. TE- Kevin Boss is a FA and Beckum has been a disappointment thus far.This class is awful though o its likely status quo remains

    4. RB- Ahmad Bradshaw is due for a new contract and Jacobs already gets a nice chunk of change and may be cut. Even if Jacobs remains the Giants must obtain a 3rd down back. None of there RB's are good receivers and with the way the Giants throw the ball a safety valve that can block would be a great addition. If Jacobs is cut a guy like Demarco Murray would be an exceptional fit. A guy that can take 10 carries a game and give the Gmen a receiving threat. If Jacobs remains with the team a guy like Barron Batch would be a good option. Batch reminds me some of the Panthers Mike Goodson and could help the Giants on special teams

    5. C- Shaun Ohara has missed most of the season and is nearing the end of his days in the NFL. Koets played well then was lost for the season with a torn ACL. This is a good center class and I think the Giants can obtain one in the middle rounds but I wouldnt count on it. The Giants seem to like Koets but if it was me I would draft a young replacement.

    6. Safety- Grant has been fantastic in the tweener/linebacker nickel defender role for the Giants but he is a FA. Unfortunately the guy they drafted to take over for him Chad Jones may never play football after his horrific car accident. Jones would of fit that role to perfection but the Giants cant count on him. Mark Barron would fit nicely as well as Robert Sands. Later rounders like Nebraskas Eric Hagg and Ohio States Jermile Hines have been used in similar roles as the "Peso" and "Star" and would fit well in Fewells 3 safety look.

    7.OT- Depends on Shawn Andrews if he locks down LT I think the Giants will be in good shape there. With Andrews,Diehl,Mckenzie and Beatty that seems like a solid group of 4. If Andrews doesnt and or they dont believe in Beatty this then jumps to the top of the list

    8.DT- Depends a lot on Barry Coefield. If Coefield is allowed to leave via FA then this becomes a big need. If not an extra depth player to develop wouldnt be a bad idea since the Jags stole Nate Collins off the practice squad

    9. DE- Its hard to believe the Giants could use another body here but they could. Kiwanukas back is a cause for concern long term and he is also a FA. I actually believe the Giants could use another situational pass rusher. While Tuck is a good all around player he isnt a great pass rusher. Osi is the best pass rusher on the team and Paul has potential but if Kiwi isnt brought back a guy that can come in and rush from an end spot when Tuck and Paul kick inside is possible

    I appreciate the concern which is been rose. The things need to be sorted out because it is about the individual but it can be with everyone. The initiative taken for the concern is very serious and need an attention of every one. This is the concern which exists in the society and needs to be eliminated from the society as soon as possible. There is nothing called a free lunch is this world. If anything needed to be resolved then initiated need a support to be sorted out.
