In 2006 we were in a similar position. We lacked talent at the skill positions and our defense was a mess. What did we do? We took two OL in the first-round and that is part of reason we had a brief SB window from 2008-2010.
Now, we need to repair our foundation. Repair the team from the inside out. We need to upgrade at the point of attack first. Whether that is OL or OLB doesn't matter IMO. We can go sexy next year.
postponing the drafting of skill positions is not the way to go. ask brick and mangold how they enjoyed this past season. it just can't work this way. head coaches and gms don't have the luxury or job security to draft lots of linemen and then draft wrs and rbs. it gets people fired.
