Drafting to win the Division

We all know the NFL South is one of the toughest divisions in the game. We also know that 6 of our 16 games (37.5%) of our games are in the Division. I think we have to go 4-2 in our division to seriously think about making the playoffs. We do that and we only have to win 5-6 out of 10 outside the division to make the playoffs at 9-7 or 10-6. So how do we draft to make that happen? 1. Pass Rushers Ryan and Brees will both pick you apart if you sit back and give them time. Maybe even more important than a DT could be someone like Alex Okafor (especially in a trade down scenario) who could play DE and we move Hardy to the tackle spot in passing situations. 2. Athletic Safeties who can cover a TE Graham and Gonzales are both a handful, and we need an athletic and physical defender who can hold their own with them. 3. Physical corners To match up agains Julo, White, and Colston, we need physical corners preferably with size. Maybe a Sanders Commings who is a hybrid DB and plays physical 4. Explosive WR's Sometimes we'll need to win in a shoot-out and need some game breakers. Tavon Austin would be a great weapon to help us score big in these tough division games. So who do I like in the draft? WR-Austin, Patterson, Patton, Rogers. S--Cyprien, Philip Thomas CB--Marcus Trufant, David Amerson, Sanders Commings PR-Okafor, Damontre Moore Sweep TB, split with NO and ATL and we're well on our way...........................
