The NFC’s biggest roster holes after the draft

First we looked at the biggest roster holes in the AFC after the draft.  So we’ll let you guess what this post is about.

(We tackled the quarterback situations earlier.)

Eagles cornerback: Joselio Hanson can be the team’s nickel back, but a team with championship aspirations can’t survive a crater-sized hole at cornerback.  Third-rounder Curtis Marsh adds depth, but they’ll add a free agent.  It would be a big surprise if they weren’t in on the Nnamdi Asomugha sweepstakes.

Cowboys defensive end: Stephen Bowen and Jason Hatcher are in free agent limbo.  Even if both of them return, the Cowboys could use more help.

Giants linebacker: It wouldn’t be a shocker if they looked at inside linebackers like Barrett Ruud or Paul Pozluszny in free agency.

Redskins wideout:  At this point, the Redskins have John Beck throwing passes to Malcolm Kelly, Anthony Armstrong, and third-round pick Leonard Hankerson.  They could all be displaced by free agents.

Lions cornerback: We loved Detroit’s draft, but they still have a massive hole at cornerback, even if Chris Houston re-signs.

Buccaneers cornerback:  Yeah, they like the guys they have.  They would like Asomugha even more.

Panthers defensive end: They could only fill so many needs in one draft.  Look for them to aggressively try to re-sign Charles Johnson.

Seahawks defensive line: It was a bit of a surprise that no pick was made here until the seventh round.  The team manufactured a pass rush last year, but can upgrade the talent.

Rams running back: G.M. Billy Devaney said on PFT Live the Rams had done a poor job finding a capable backup for Steven Jackson.  Since they ignored the position in the draft, we fully expect them to go after one aggressively in free agency.

Ruud would be a good fit in NY. Their linebackers not being able to cover has cost them big the last 2 years against the Eagles.

I'd rather see Ruud go to a division rival so he could sack Freeman 6 or 7 times a season and put a beating on Blount.

Ruud putting a beating on ANYONE would be a first.

Ruud would be the next Harry Carson if he went to the Giants.   The fans up there would LOVE to have him.

I would love to see Ruud leave and the D fall apart because of it.

I would love to see you leave and make the message board a better place.

You should of left with Gruden.. Time to move on. Feel bad for you that your life is that bad you troll a message board of a team you don't even like or have faith in.

If Ruud leaves, it is like addition by subrtraction, plus we make the Giants a weaker team...one less foe to worry about.

If we face them, Blount will knock his chest off.  Would be funny watching Ruud get dragged twenty yards downfield by Blount.

The Giants picked up our biggest offensive flop in a decade last year when they signed Michael Clayton. I guess it would be fitting if they got our defensive flop this year in Barrett Ruud.

FWIW, Harry Carson was known as a hard hitter. I'm pretty sure they aren't going to confuse him for Barrett Ruud anytime soon.
