I agree with your conclusion, that injecting youth helps. It was needed. I feel, though, that the changes 2004 from 2002 are significant.

Adding The Baire improves two positions, starting RDE (the Baire) and first spare (DeLoach);

Adding Robinson improves (hopefully) two positions, starting RCB (Robinson) and FS (Coleman) (also McCree as a second cover safety provides flexibility;

Adding Babin and Peek improves (hopefully) two positions, OLB and first spare.

Some is familiar, but a lot is different.
