Lets take a look at who I project will be starting, and who the key backups will be in five years.
DE- Frank Alexander, Drafted guy- i'm on Alexander's banwagan, and I think he's going to be a great player for us. After him I think we draft a rotational guy.
DT- Drafted guy- We need to draft a superstar on the D-line
DT Drafted guy- Nobody on our roster will be starting at DT in 5 years
DE- CJ- CJ SHOULD starting for awhile
LB- Keek- I think he'll be great
LB Beason- our defensive captain will be around for awhile
LB Anderson- I think he's our most dependable player on defense
CB- Drafted guy- Need a bigtime corner when gamble leaves
CB Norman- I think he'll develop well
CB Capt- I really like Capt at nickel
FS- Drafted guy- Need upgrades at safety
SS- Drafted guy
So thats 5 current starters (6 if you count nickel CB as a starting position) I have starting in 5 years (Alexander is on the roster, but not starting). As you can see big changes ahead for the DT and safety position, but linebacker is set.
