2013 Free Agency :
RT Sebastian Vollmer : Justice isn't cutting it. I'd like to see one of Tom Brady's body guards in a blue and white next year. Luck seems to be pretty good when he has time to pass the ball...
OG Louis Vasquez : I'm sure Jimmy Raye will be talking to Grigson about this Chargers future. Hopefully it's in Indianapolis, because our interior line is absolutely pathetic.
OLB Anthony Spencer : Spencer will be an immediate upgrade at OLB. Sad to see Dwight leave, but it seems inevitable.
ILB Dannell Ellerbe : I think Ellerbe is a cap casualty of the Ravens this offseason. I don't know if Pat Angerer is the solution along side Freeman, but having Ellerbe on the team certainly can't hurt the situation. I'm sure Pagano will be happy to speak with him about moving to the circle city.
CB Mike Jenkins : Cowboys probably should have traded him to us when they could get something for him. He'll be able to test free agency and I imagine Grigson will come knocking on his door once again with a reasonable offer and a guarantee to see playing time.
2013 Draft :
1st Round - Sheldon Richardson, DE Missouri : Cory Redding needs a Robin to his Batman. A Goose to his Maverick. A bona fide wingman. Richardson is a great athlete with a "never quit" mentality. He's a solid 1st round draft choice and should drop to us at 24.
3rd Round - Alvin Bailey, OG Arkansas : Another productive, big boy interior lineman that can come to Luck's rescue. I think he'll be a welcomed addition to the line and will compete with Reitz/Ijalana in camp. #67 in video below.
4th Round - Phillip Thomas, SS Fresno State : Big hitter, good tackling and can go after the ball. I think he's a huge steal in the 4th and an upgrade over Zibby.
6th Round - Braxton Cave, C Notre Dame : I'm not saying that Satele and Shipley are not the answers at Center, but the Interior can be upgraded and a 6th round pick is a small price to pay for the potential of Cave.
7th Round - Josh Johnson, CB Purdue : Homer alert! I watch this kid play every Saturday either at Ross Aide or on TV. He is a good corner who could play in the nickel package. Can't be worse than Vaughn/Butler. No highlight video love for him on the YouTube but he finished 2012 with 65 tackles, 16 passes broken up, three fumbles forced, one recovered and three interceptions, one of which he returned 74 yards for a touchdown.
