I think the draft could go either way in terms of offense vs. defense. I think that McKay would prefer to go defense more, but when all is said and done, it may be split down the middle.
I think McKay & Co. realize how are offense is still pretty young, and although it would be good to add more young playmakers, it's not going to reach its potential until Vick begins to reach his. So I think if anything is really targetted on offense, it will be improving the OL position. I know the team would like to add more help at RB, WR, and TE, but I don't think they will be making a fuss if they exit this draft without players at those positions.
Rather, I really expect the team to draft at least 2 DL, at DE and DT. And I expect 2 DBs to be added, at least one being a safety and the other most likely a CB. And I could see the team drafting another LB if one slips in the 2nd day.
But most likely I think the team is going to draft 4 offensive players, and 4 defensive players, assuming we keep all our current picks.
And I really don't expect more than maybe 1 or 2 of this year's rookies to make an immediate impact. Hopefully it will be the two guys we get in Round 1 and 2, but at this point, except maybe FS, I really don't think anybody we draft this year is going to be a starter this year.
