I'd still have Trevathan and Kuechly who are damn good in coverage.Super Nomario said:Brockers had a pretty good year. You can blitz Kendricks or Ayers, but that's taking a guy out of coverage for you.
Super Nomario said:As for Jones and Werner ... they were high draft picks, and maybe they'll be good next year or in a couple years, but they've proven almost nothing in the NFL. They had trouble cracking the lineups of two pretty bad defenses. You went very rookie-heavy in the draft, and that paid off with some of the players contributing right away (Lacy, Ryan, Allen), but we're not rating on potential here. It seems like in your mind guys like Austin, Armstead, Jones, Werner, Rogers, etc. are already solid contributors instead of the talented-but-flawed players they were as rookies.
Watt is the best defensive player in football. The rest of your pass rush is not that impressive, IMO, and I think the Bills would be able to stop it for the most part.
I see your point. It's not that I'm trying to sell my rooks as world beaters but Austin was under utilized in real life, Armstead was thrown into the fire and after one bad game was a very solid LT especially in the post season, Werner would have been on a rotation with Jones because unlike the Colts I would have given up on the LB transition and turned him into a pass rush specialist. Just because they didn't have great years in their schemes doesn't mean I wouldn't have made changes to fit their talents in to my scheme.
