Shonn Greene-Average

NEEDS: 
QB:  Mettenberger is NOT the answer, they may take a QB at #2 or #33.
#1 WR:  Wright and Douglas are good on underneath routes, but Hunter has been a bust so far.  They need a WR that can stretch the field and be a red zone threat.
D-Line Depth: If they take Leonard Williams at #2 (like most Mock Drafts), they will have 3-4 DE duo similar to the Jets combo of Muhammed Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson

RT: Jeremy Parnell-New
RB: 
Denard Robinson-Below Average/Young/2013 5th RD
Toby Gerhardt-Below Average

NEEDS: 
Pass Rusher:  With the #3 pick the Jags are guaranteed either outside rush DE Dante Fowler or inside rush DT Leonard Williams, Fowler may be the better fit, but Williams may be the better talent
OT:  They signed Parnell, but the jury is still out on the #2 pick in the 2013 draft, Luke Joeckel
RB:  Robinson is solid but is not an evey down back and Gerhardt is nothing more than a short yardage back, they need a bell cow to help take the pressure off of Bortles. They claimed Bernard Pierce off of waivers, but he isn't the answer.
MLB:  Posluszny was the best player on the roster from 2011-2013 but he's past his prime, an young MLB is needed.
FS/DB Depth:  Josh Evans was terrible last year and Sergio Brown is a career backup.

NEEDS: 
#1 WR:  Luckily for the Raiders, they will have the chance to draft either Amari Cooper or Kevin White if they stay at #4
Pass Rush/DE:  Mack was a stud last year but he needs more help from the D-Line in getting to the opposing QB
OT:  Watson may not be the answer at RT, Penn is solid at LT but he's 32
Power RB:  Murray and Helu give them solid speed on the edge but they need an inside rusher
FS/DB Depth:  Woodson will be 39 in October
