Sears, Deloach, Ioane: Are they good enough?
Are they good as good as we can get to fill in for our starters? Or, will we replace one or two with a FA from another team, when they make their final cuts? I'd hate to see another season like last year for our defense. With both Payne & Walker coming back from season ending injuries, this has to be a concern.
I really like Sears, Deloach has been adequate, & the coaches seem to like Ioane. But, can we upgrade our reserves by picking up another team's cast offs? Does anyone have any ideas of what players are on the bubble for other established teams with deeper depth?
Our defensive line depth is our only remaining question mark going into this season.
The secondary is 2 players deep at every position, depending on what Glen Earl does & when Ramon Walker can return.
The LB's are 2 deep at every position.
On offense, we're at least 2 deep at every position.
I'm sure that our next draft will be geared toward adding youth & depth to the DL, but I'm still concerned about the quality of our depth this year. Has anyone heard any rumors of DL projected to be released, that could enhance our depth?
