You don't say it but I'm getting a "plays too many hands" vibe from you.
That is, when you're in with legit hands like A/Q+, straight draws are limited (as the Ace is a dead end). You get a lot of draws when you're in the pot with 7/8s and such, which are hands that you only want to play in a later position as you want to see the flop for cheap and semi-bluff the blinds into folding.
