1. Defensive tackle Armond Armstead, safety Adrian Wilson, and expectations for 2014.

2. The possibility of drafting a quarterback, and two prospects who might be on the radar in the middle or late rounds.

3. Second-year receivers Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce and Kenbrell Thompkins, and the idea of "banking" on a big jump from them.

4. Two possible free-agent targets from AFC East foes.

5. Considering the value of trading up vs. trading down.
