I think that concept will be in play more than ever this year. They could grab the eventual replacements for guys like Zach Miller and Sidney Rice, who are very expensive. We can afford them now...we probably can't in a few years with three massive deals pending (Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson).
Alas, I won't be surprised to see non "imminent needs" kinds of picks this year...because we really don't have any imminent needs.
There are several positions we all would probably like to see addressed, but I think the future snapshot is more of a factor than ever with our draft plan this time.
We shall see, I guess. My money is on a DT at #56, but a TE (like Ertz) or a big-body WR won't make me blink twice.
