Hot topic: Where NFC West teams need help

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The draft and meaningful free-agent signings have passed. Trades remain possible, but less likely as training camps approach.

Barring a surprise or two, what you see on NFC West rosters is pretty much what you're going to get for the 2009 season. Where are the Rams, 49ers, Seahawks and Cardinals most vulnerable? I'll be exploring those issues this week and figured we could start the conversation here.

The teams in this division appear to feel better than some outsiders do about their situations at offensive tackle. Only the Rams addressed the position in the draft. The Cardinals were the only team to seek pass-rush help in the first five rounds. I'm sure we can find other areas.
