- WR – ‘Hollywood’ Brown has shown signs of becoming Lamar Jackson’s go-to receiver, but the fact that Baltimore felt the need to go out and pick up Dez Bryant late in the season tells you that they don’t have much depth at the position.
- S – After having to let Earl Thomas go, strengthening at safety will surely once again be high on the Ravens agenda.
- TE – The 2020 version of the Ravens definitely adapted well once they realised they couldn’t play ‘13’ personnel anything like as much as they had done in 2019. A good all-round tight end would help this offense in both the run and pass game.
- OT – Having invested in bringing in Joe Burrow with the first overall pick in the 2020 draft, the Bengals absolutely need to ensure that they’re going to protect him far better than they did in his rookie year – one that he failed to complete as a result of getting hurt.
- WR – I know they drafted Tee Higgins high last year, but AJ Green won’t be around forever and Burrow is going to need more than one option to throw to if this offense is going to prosper in future.
- CB – William Jackson III is a free agent and the Bengals cap position isn’t great so they may not be able to bring him back. If they don’t, corner may jump to the top of their list of needs.
- S – This team doesn’t really know what it’s got in Grant Delpit who spent his entire rookie season on IR, but even assuming he’s healthy for 2021 this is a group that could use some additional talent.
- IOL – This unit played an awful lot better than most people expected in 2020, helping Nick Chubb to another 1,000 yard season. Adding to this group, especially if they can add a top quality guard, would only serve to improve this offense.
- EDGE – Myles Garrett and Olivier Vernon are an excellent pair, but the Browns lack any sort of depth behind those two so bringing along a developmental prospect would be a good idea.
- OT – The Steelers gave up the fewest sacks in the NFL in 2020 but both starters at the tackle positions are free agents and so it wouldn’t be a shock to see Pittsburgh invest in its offensive line early in the draft.
- RB – James Conner is another who could leave in free agency, but even if he sticks around adding a complementary back and creating a powerful 1-2 punch would definitely give this offense another dimension.
- QB – Big Ben may decide now is the time to walk off into the sunset, and all the Steelers have behind him on the depth chart is Mason Rudolph. That would represent a huge drop off for this team, so don’t be surprised if Pittsburgh targets a quarterback in this draft.
