A great step up and amazing considering its a ndw scheme and the loss of Butler and Coleman in preseason.

Re: Final season stats for defense

Great job all around.

Missing stat: # of players that have hurdled over Malcolm Jenkins due to poor tackling technique

Re: Final season stats for defense

How different is the defense going to look next year in terms of scheme? We are moving more towards a true 3-4, right?

Not necessarily a new scheme. Just a style they're suited to play.

Looking to OLB of the future. Another (more versatile) Safety

Shore up the o line and all of a sudden out receivers are open again.

Re: Final season stats for defense

Good rebound year on D. I'd like to see some fine tuning. Get rid of Harper and Jenkins. Their time is up. A healthy Victor Butler should help. The LB corps will shape up to be strong next year IMO. I'd like a free agent corner to replace Greer (he's gone)

The scheme revert has already been done.

It will look different...

Harolson was a 1 year signing.
Smith hopefully will be gone.
Butler will be back
Vilma will hopefully be gone.
As far as for the DBs i expect a renovation.

Re: Final season stats for defense

Definitely need another Safety as all but Vaccaro will have expiring contracts or a bad contract...

One of the first three draft picks should be used on a linebacker (inside or outside, maybe both); like to bring Humber back, though he's smallish for the 34, he looked more impressive with the limited snaps than Lofton did...

Like all our returning defensive linemen, may need another in the mix to challenge and continue the youth movement...

Cornerback will depend on returning health and if Robinson returns; Lewis, White were definitely strong additions...

Re: Final season stats for defense

Butler replaces Haralson

Two young ILBs in Rufus and Reddick, 2-3 years away from starting

Need another S and CB (likely via free agency)

Draft OL & DL

WR to replace Meachem - Jordan Matthews or Odell Beckham Jr.
