Where are the bucs holes?

NFL.com's remaining hole and draft grades came out today. After reading the bucs analysis and their foes, it seems like experts think the Bucs did the best this off-season, Panthers slightly improved, Falcons declined slightly, and the Saints are on the edge of destruction with all their allegations. After reading the remaining holes article I sat and thought about what our holes were.

The obvious answers are RT, SLB, TE. Health concerns could give us holes at FS and DT. And not knowing at what level our corners are going to play at (or whether or not they will be in a cell block) we could use another CB. We have a serviceable player in Erik Lorig but we could use a FB who can block well and be a receiving threat when called upon.

Another thing in the article is that it says the Bucs biggest need is experience. Wow. That hits like a Saint with a white envelope waiting in the locker room. Man we are a young team depending on young players to succeed. Just how young are we? After averaging out or roster as of today (minus Rocky Weaver who i could not find a age for) is 24.4 years of age. Another number that factors in is our years experience. 87-24 rookies= 63. Those 63 players have a average experience of 3.8 years.
