Before the Draft....

A lot of people are talking about who we should take at #4 and what positions to go after in the later rounds. So far in Free Agency, we have reigned in the free-wheeling free-spending days of old, even in an UNCAPPED year, which is simply astounding to me. (Considering how often we have done cap gymnastics under Snyderrato, it really speaks volumes to me of how much Snyder is willing to change to build a great, enduring franchise.)

While we aren't looking for more Bruce Smith, Primetime, or Archuleta-esque signings, this year's Free Agency really is the time snag a few weak starters/solid backups. (We only had weak backups for the OL last year, which is an indictment of the last few years' FA season.) With so much competition at so many spots, along with an uncapped year and an intelligent front office, we couldn't ask for a better rebuilding year. Now, I'm not saying this is a 7-9 season coming up,  but this is the type of situation that is ideal to lay the foundation for the next decade.

My ideal situation is to focus on a couple of positions for the remainder of FA leading up to the draft. Then, stock up on the highest-quality undrafted rookies after the draft. We can look at tons of young stock that can be decent this year, but excel with experience. The Shanahans and Haslett can handpick the guys who are not only a "should fit" player, but also shows promise in the schemes at the rookie camp after the draft, as opposed to signing a FA without seeing them practice in the schemes specific to the Redskins and commiting starter-type money to them for 3+ years.

So, I have a poll for you guys. In each of your humble opinions, which positions should be the major focus for the remainder of Free Agency?
