NFC West Team Needs


St. Louis Rams: OL, WR, QB

If this season showed anything, it’s that the St. Louis Rams have the ability to compete with almost any team in the NFL. Well, they at least have the defense to do so. Their offense took a huge leap forward this off-season when they acquired Nick Foles from the Eagles for Sam Bradford. Now that Foles is under center for the Rams, they could help him out by surrounding him with more receivers. Their leading pass-catcher in 2014 was Kenny Britt, who is not what you consider to be an elite receiver, and is also a free agent.


San Francisco 49ers: CB, WR, DT 

After reaching the NFC Championship last season, the 49ers had a very disappointing 2014 season, finishing 7-9 and leading to former head coach Jim Harbaugh‘s departure. Colin Kaepernick struggled mightily at quarterback, and the defense wasn’t as stout as it normally is. Some of the defensive failure had to do with Patrick Willis missing an extended period of time, and he is no longer with the team after announcing his retirement. Navarro Bowman also missed the entire season, which didn’t help, but the secondary performed poorly giving up 29 passing TDs which was tied for 6th worst in the league. The Niners could use some secondary help in the upcoming draft. If they decide to go offense, Kaepernick could use some more weapons as Michael Crabtree and Brandon Lloyd could be on their way out in free agency.


Arizona Cardinals: QB, RB, WR

The Cardinals saw their season go down the drain once Carson Palmer tore his ACL in week 10 against the Rams. Drew Stanton filled in for Palmer, but was hurt himself in week 15 against the Rams. Ryan Lindley proved to be an absolute disaster at quarterback, and the team was defeated in the first round by the Panthers. The Cardinals need to address the quarterback position at some point in this draft, because Palmer’s health has obviously become an issue and it is questionable as to whether or not he can remain healthy for the rest of his career. The team drafted Logan Thomas last season, but obviously had little faith in him with starting Lindley.


Seattle Seahawks: WR, C, OT

There’s not much more the Seattle Seahawks need. Coming off of their Super Bowl XLVIII win over the Denver Broncos, the Seahawks followed up with a 12-4 and NFC West division championship season this year, and found themselves one yard away from repeating, if it weren’t for a terrible play-call by head coach Pete Carroll. If there is a need that the Seahawks have, it’d be at both the wide receiver position. Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse are solid options at wide out, but neither is a true number one option. If they can add a true number one wideout, their offense will be nearly unstoppable, especially after trading for Jimmy Graham. In the Graham trade they lost long time center Max Unger, so they could be looking for his replacement in the draft.
