In conclusion, here is a list of the positions I feel need the biggest improvement, in order of importance and the best fit for replacement.
Defensive Line: Ideally, getting JPP in Free Agency, and drafting Leonard Williams would be the best way to improve this position group.
Offensive Line: Upgrading the right guard position with a veteran player like Iupati, would serve double duty by also upgrading the right tackle position with Howard moving to his natural position.
Interior Linebacker: Brandon Spikes should be a high priority in free agency to add proper depth, and be a safety net if Roach can’t come back.
Wide Receiver: Grabbing Torrey Smith, and/or grabbing a solid talent in the draft will give Carr a missing piece to his offense.
