    Some posters seem obsessed on filling all the holes. I’ve seen scenarios focused on the number of picks acquired. Almost every team has a hole or 2, even the top teams. Big games are won mostly by great players making great plays. It’s okay if the Cards have to be pedestrian at a couple of positions. That’s part of the natural result of a salary cap. The trick is to look at holes and see which ones can be hidden to limit exposure. Take the second corner. If you have a great first CB, you move him around the field to take the opponents top receiver. Sure if would be nice to have 2 great corners, but 1 usually is enough to keep a team in most games.

    Don’t get me wrong. On an earlier post I endorsed moving down if the first round went as I laid out; otherwise sit still.

    People might consider me as someone obsessed with "filling the holes," but really, I just want to make sure none of the positions end up with a starter who is a practice-squad player or cut on the final day of training camp by another team.

    I normally think of a hole as a spot where someone poor could be upgraded upon, not multiple spots on the roster where we don't have a starter or even a backup.

    Hi I’m Zeem Freeze and I’m addicted to filling holes.

    But in all seriousness, I had earlier stated there is no way we draft a WR with the 3 guys drafted last year still developing... I now have come around to think another WR is a possibility. If Brown doesn’t make it to us then I think we go with CeeDee which I would be fine with.

    Its gonna be WR, nobody panned out and Kliff uses a spread offense. Andy Isabelle seemed to small, KJ had drops and was IA and Butler missed a season.

    They will get more weapons for Murray, Lamb is my guess he knows the terminology, has chemistry with Kyler and would feel Larry's spot, when he retires

    Way too early to say nobody panned out but I agree, those 3 don’t look promising

    I’m holding out hope that Butler will be a pleasant surprise

    Youth is a testosterone fueled journey. They'll settle down later.

    Even once you meet the right person, it's hard to stop the obsession

    Which ones do you think can be covered up? Can't fix them all in one off-season I know. I'm thinking OL, although the current one did play well above my expectations this past season. Some of that was the Guard signings but most of it was the hiring of Sean Kugler. Maybe CB? If PP plays the way he did in 2020 as he did the last 4 games of 2019.......? Maybe Robert Alford gets back to his SB yr form? We could draft a CB or a RT & help either of those positions, maybe both if we draft or sign wisely? WR? Draft one or go with what we have & hope Isabella & Butler pan out? KM needs better protection yes but he still lacks a true #1 WR so there is two areas right there. I truly believe the DL needs fixing the most plus we need another edge rusher, an OLB that can cover would be nice also. The next couple of months will be very interesting for sure. Lots of areas of need but which ones get fixed is the burning question?

    All that sounds terribly depressing.

    I don't think you go in with the mentality that you can "fix" them all, as in make them strengths that fill up a playoff or championship roster, but you certainly have to find a way to put a starting caliber player in each empty spot.

    I think it takes at least another offseason to get to a point where we feel like anything is really fixed.
