Drafting Solid Backups

I know that this post is pre-draft, but let’s work with our current roster.  I took most of the names of the starters and replacements from this website:

ASSUMING that these are our starters for Game 1 2009:

QB – Romo

RB – Barber

FB – Anderson

WR1 – Williams

LT – Adams

LG – Kosier

C – Gurode

RG – Davis

RT – Colombo

TE - Witten

WR2 – Austin (instead of Crayton)

 

LDE – Spears

NT – Ratliff

RDE – Olshansky

LOLB – Ellis

LILB – James

RILB – Brooking

ROLB – Ware

LCB – Newman

SS – Sensabaugh

FS – Hamlin

RCB - Jenkins

 

And ASSUMING that these are their primary backups:

QB - Kitna

RB – Choice (instead of Jones)

FB - Crosslin

WR1 – Hurd (instead of Austin)

LT - Free

LG - Proctor

C – Gibbons/Spanos (not listed on the above website)

RG - Holland

RT - McQuistan

TE - Bennett

WR2 – Crayton (instead of Stanback)

 

LDE - Dixon

NT - Siavii

RDE - Hatcher

LOLB - Spencer

LILB - Stewart

RILB - Carpenter

ROLB - Rogers

LCB - Ball

SS - Watkins

FS - Brown

RCB – Scandrick

 

Some positions are fairly covered with a backup:

QB - Kitna

RB – Choice

TE – Bennett

WR2 – Crayton

RDE – Hatcher

LOLB – Spencer

RCB - Scandrick

 

Other positions would be DISASTROUS with an injury to the starter:

 

Who would we have the most difficulty replacing in the event of a season ending injury to the starter?

 

Does the answer to that question dictate our draft picks this month?
