With the 2012-2013 Thursday night game against the Seattle Seahawks reaching completion, we are one game away from the halfway point. Thanks to the relatively low injury impact, we've been able to put together a mostly complete picture of how the three phases' units take care of business (with possible exception to special teams with Ginn's aches). Through seven games, we've seen shock and awe domination, upsets, both mistake-free and mistake-marred performances, and tonight's smash-em'-up divisional meeting.
Despite a few bumps in the road, namely the outlier games (considering garbage-time padding & exceedingly poor statistical aberrations), and the rarity of game film on many of offensive players of the future, it's safe to say that most of us have a few thoughts on the spots or important depth that should be addressed in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Personally, I'm becoming less and less confident in our current quarterback's ability to contribute much more than "not making costly mistakes", especially when overreacting to his 4 interceptions thrown in the past 2 game. However, since there is an abundance of future talent on the bench, I would definitely not be interested in trading up or aggressively reaching for a quarterback, unless Geno Smith magically stumbled into the end of the first round. However, I am concerned about the secondary (in general), as well as the quality of WR, and the importance of finding an heir-apparent to Justin Smith.
With that being said, I'm not trying to find out what people think about specific position players, but rather their ideas about which position groups will require priority in next year's draft.
Based on the all-around performance in the first almost-half of 2012, which position group (including depth) do you think will most need an upgrade or require attention due to FA losses during the first round of the 2013 draft?
