With the addition of this class, what positions do you see as needing to be addressed most in the 2018 class?

WR, DT, OT, S?

QB is always on the priority list so I don't list that.

I'm not sure how OT falls out of that list. James is a Senior this year. That leaves the Princes, Ashley, and Troxell as the only natural OTs on the roster after next season, right? That's a high priority.

To me it is DL and DB. We need to continue to build depth and elite talent in the trenches and I would like to see some top talent in defensive backfield as well.

Hard to decide... 2018 is a whole new year with all new needs.  For me, it's a toss up between D-line, DBs, receivers, and a top 10 running back. We're going to be thin at DB after this year, D-line needs to make up for the down class this year, we need to back-fill receivers for 2019, and I ALWAYS want a top 10 running back.

I think the biggest needs are always linemen on both sides of the ball.

Next year, I'd start with DT.

We need DBs, too.

DT
Safety

I want 2 guys that people are afraid to kickoff to, and one guy no one will punt to. Be that someone stepping up now, or recruiting some players that can do that.  Been way too long.

Here's my post on it from last week FWIW. If I had to number it I would go...

1. Safety

2. Buck or Strong side End- Basically whichever side Paul James does not play will be only 2 deep on schollied players.

3. OL

4. WR

5. QB

6. DT

7. LB

QB- every year need

OL- Graduating 3 starters next year so need another class of 3 or 4

WR- High 4*s Justyn Ross & Jacob Copeland are both high on AU so need to snatch them up.

Buck if we miss on Bryant- Will need more than TD

LB-Gotta build depth

S-Graduating 3 starting or contributing SRs

With due respect 1 in a no. Barring attrition we will have 8 schollied players for 1 to 2 playing spots in 2018 which means Garner will play 5-6 in rotation.

Basically every position will be in need of a solid group of recruits next year. But that's a good thing because means we aren't having to get 6 WR or 6 OTs.  That's one of the things that I've praised Gus and Garner for and it's balance in the recruiting and roster management.  Only thing that jumps out right now is possibly DB.
