We're going to have to draft or sign a good back or two to run the kind of offense Fox likes to run. Moreno can't carry that kind of load, and Fox likes a deep backfield. Look for us to sign DeAngelo Williams or draft a guy like Mikel Leshoure in the 2nd. Hate to break it to you guys that want an all-defense draft.

Pick up a RB in FA, but NOT Williams.

With Fox involved, do you really think any other FA back is as likely? And who would you prefer anyway?

i think there's a chance we just stick with Moreno and the forgotten Bronco Lendale White, he looked good when he got some action and serves as the power back in the duo.

I'd like to come out of the first three rounds with multiple DLs, at least one safety, and preferrably a right tackle.

I think there's almost zero chance of that happening. Moreno is close enough to Fox's mold to last a while longer, but Lendale is almost certainly done. There really is almost no chance we don't move to seriously upgrade our running backs through the draft or free agency. Fox is going to insist upon it, I'm certain.

I am shocked at the lack of faith in Moreno.

I have faith that the guy can be part of a successful tandem. I have absolutely zero faith he can carry the load of a John Fox running game. Beyond that there just isn't any quality backs behind Moreno.

Our two biggest needs are DL. Emphasis on the "two" part of that. If we play a 3-4 front or a 4-3 we're short at least two starting quality guys on the line, and in the 3-4 that assumes Bannan remains at his '10 form, if its a 4-3 it assumes Doom and Ayers can step up as every down DE types.

Next it depends on the scheme. If its a 4-3 then MLB by a mile. If its a 3-4 then we need to improve our safeties. McBath might be a diamond in the rough just waiting to get healthy and Bruton might transfer some of his special teams acumen to the defense, but the odds of both doing it are pretty slim.

You basically flip those two for the next tier as well, if we're still 3-4 then a high quality ILB should come in #4 on the list, if its 4-3 then it'd be another safety.

Corner is 5th regardless of scheme. Moves up to probably #3 if Champ isn't retained and no high level veteran is brought in to replace him.

A good all around TE comes in 6th, which would be a big help for Tebow's development.

After that we need to add a quality 3rd back to the mix with Moreno and White, ideally someone who can return kicks.

Once we've done that we need to start adding depth to the entire defense to cover for when guys bust, get hurt, etc..

I hope people understand that the odds are against any DT having impact this season or next.

We need another back of Moreno's level or better. Moreno and White are not enough to get it done in a run-first offense like Fox is going to run. Not even close.

His weekly hamstring injury may play into it.

This is true. A top 5 DT has a better chance than most rookie DTs, but it's still very possible we are going to have issues on the defensive front for a few years.
