Finishing the Defense


So I had a quick thought and I wanted to share. I really feel the defensive front seven is now scary, Nix did a good job of building this up. So, my thought is why would he move to building the offense when the D isnt finished. You have a solid group of CB's, but none that really stand out. Awill has the most potential, although Rogers can play, but neither are that shut down CB that gives you that added edge, even with a better pass rush. The safety group is talented but thin, Scott and Wilson are at the end of their prime, and Searcy is unproven, while Byrd is a top tier safety. My thought is that if ODB feels they can get that shutdown corner in the first, with either Gilmore or Dre, then they will do it and finish buildiing the D. More depth at LB and DL is needed, and can be had later int the draft (along with grabbing an OT, QB,and WR) and they could possibly move Mckelvin or Mcgee to a safety position for more depth there. Having Gilmore/Dre, Awill and Rogers as your starting group, with Mckelvin and Dflo as backup and Mcgee being moved to safety. That group added with the front 7 would give us playmakers at every defensive positon, which I think is Nix ultimate goal for re-building this defense. Add depth along the draft, and this defense might be completed after this draft.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
