More offseason moves?

As I sit here impatiently awaiting the draft, all I can wonder is have we done enough this off season. The reality is we lost some of our top players on a team that is still developing depth, and those departures sting. I am all for Whisehunt and his desire to build through the draft. It is the only way, in my opinion to build sustainability into a roster. That being said, it feels as though we were not ready to lose all these pieces yet. It feels like we are 1 - 2 seasons away from have a solid team top to bottom. This concerns me because losing a bunch of starters may cause us to reach in the draft or draft according to need, not best available. Again, I trust whiz and graves as their draft history has been great but it is no secret that we have holes that need to be filled. So again I am left wondering, are there so key moves, or even depth moves that need to be made? Do we have enough high draft picks (4 in the top 90) to fill these holes. with the freedom from cap penalties this year, is there a solid veteran we could go get for a third or fourth rounder, I mean, that is all it took for Q. just saying, is there solid OT or NT out there who could buy another year or two until we could find a true long term solution through the draft. maybe a veteran WR, to go 4th on the depth chart or an older CB to help mentor all our youth at the position. Perhaps a great coverage LB, because we will need that as haggins is the only guy back there who has any idea how to play in coverage. And good coverage LB's are cheap because they do not put up sexy stat lines (sacks). Just saying, it might be a little much to ask 3rd, 4th and 5th rounders to play real minutes as a rookies. Undoubtedly this is a deep draft, but with so many holes and the way we bring rookies along slowly, I do not know if we have the pieces yet. Maybe they got something cooking up there at HQ... but i guess we will remain in the dark, at least until the draft. Again, I remain very optimistic about this season and lets not forget we play in the NFC west, but I feel we need to address one more position before the draft whether it be a LB, OL, DL, WR, CB.  Your Thoughts please.
