personally I think he is right

S
Phillips should develop into a star, but Johnson and Brown are solid starters but nothing flashy. Brown is also only on a 1 year deal.
there is little/no depth behind these 3

CB
Also agree here. Webster, Ross and Thomas are great. Dockery is solid depth, but only on a one year deal and the others are developmental guys/special teamers. Depth is a real concern here, if any of our top 3 CBs are hurt for any length of time we are in trouble.

DT
This is a surprise, but once I thought about it, is likely #3. On the surface this is really deep. But Cofield and Robbins are coming off knee surgeries and still some ways before being able to get onto the field; plus both guys are off contract after the season. Alford is solid depth, but hasn't really shown enough yet (Bernard was brought in to fill the passing role that Alford is ideally suited to). I have some concern about Cofield and Robbins' ability to get 100% healthy for this season. I suspect concern over their heath was part of the reason we got both Canty and Bernard. Cofield is also the only realy NT we have on the roster.

A big concern is NT where we have no legitmate NT depth behind Cofield (who is solid but nothing spectacular). Canty could be a stop-gap I guess, but he is much better suited to UT.

OC - We need a centre to groom behind O'Hara. It is hopefull that Koets is that guy, but he really needs to step up. Deubert is our #2 OC, but he is also needed at LG

WR - a valid concern. We have young guys, but they are unproven and we are hoping they step up (as they should). I don't see this as too much of an issue, we should be ok. But it will be a problem next year as I doubt Hixon or Moss is back (Hixon will get good money elsewhere)

I still wouldn't rule out upgrading any of these positions over the course of the offseason if the right player is availabe and for the right price. A trade could happen (although perhaps unlikely), we will also be keeping a very close eye on teh guys trimmed from other teams rosters.
