They re-signed Justin Thomas who by all means looked the part in camp/preseason last year. Could be an opening for him. Also Tucker has been hanging around as a practice squad player for a few years. Perhaps either can step right in and contribute. Although with Mann retiring I guess we'll see just how well the WR corps develops without his tutelage. My pick Deontay Burnett USC. Likely a higher pick with limited picks in this draft. Tough decisions. Perhaps a FA or UDFA later could fill that slot WR position?

Ehhh, couldn't draft OL for years and years....then they brought in Munchak and suddenly we're letting quality guys go to FA because we don't have a spot for them.

Like people have been saying, Porter and Lake haven't developed a single player. Not one. Here's the list of quality defensive players drafted/developed under Tomlin:
Timmons
Woodley (for a few years)
Worilds (for a few years)
Heyward
Probably Watt, Hargrave and Tuitt
Shazier (sadly, for a few years)

Did I miss anyone? Maybe 8 quality starters AFTER 11 YEARS!?!

Colbert has a track record of hitting on picks pretty much everywhere. I don't think he's the one to blame for that sad list above.
