We may already have one on our D and don't know it yet. We're just gonna have to let this year pan out to see what we've got. If need be,we'll pick one up in next years draft. I think we've got a great foundation to build on!

Re: what a nice young D-Line

The D-line will become even younger next offseason when Will Smith's and Kenyon Coleman's contracts are up - hopefully the young guys will soak up all the good things from these vets while they're still around.

Re: what a nice young D-Line

This is an intriguing line. I can see us having Hicks, Bunkley and Jenkins on the line on running downs just clogging everything up.

Several players are still unproven in our 3-4, but it really looks good on paper.
"-" Robinson I'd say paper-wise it looks promising.

I'm really interested to see how the guys who didn't get to start last year can step up in their new roles. But really, won't we consider anything under 7K yards given up as an improvement? I'd settle for a CB who lines up with a #1 receiver and decides to actually cover him during the course of the entire play.

Part of that was the zone scheme, so it wasn't all on the players themselves. But I'll give you there were definitely some missed assignments whether it be the initial coverage or the exchange of coverage between two DBs.

Oh no, I'm straight up talking Robinson deciding to let Steve Smith just run down the field after lining up with him and then deciding to cover the friggin' TE instead.
