Look to sign a good Guard for one side and draft one in the 1st along with a Center in the 1st or 2nd. S and CB are next with RB and WR next after that.
8 picks in 5 rounds (Chad Johnson trade/ Joseph comp pick and Palmer trade)
This should bring them something for almost all needs.
I like this plan with a couple quibbles:
1. I'd bring back BOTH Howard and Lawson. I liked what they brought more than Rivers, who could be their backup.
2. I wouldn't draft a center in the first two rounds. I agree that we should sign one OG in FA (either Nicks or Grubbs) and draft another, then I would use the other top two picks on a WR and a DB unless Richardson somehow fell to us.
3. Then I'd sign Michael Bush in Free Agency.
