Your secondary and linebackers are only as good as the defensive line. If you cant stop the run consistently and cant get pressure on the quarterback the linebackers & seconday will struggle as well.

We need a solid middle upfront to first stop the run, and then put pressure on the quarterback. This is critical for any defense!

I just think the Safeties will be good no matter what; I'm not so sure about the DT's. Also, the DT's seem to need to be great to succeed in the 2-gap.

Safties have some known commodities but the D-line has to gel to be a dominate D.

Stopping the run and an aggressive pass rush are the prime factors in winning ball games.

It all starts up front. If you can't stop the run, which most teams try to establish first, then the opponent doesn't even need to test your secondary.

You have to stop the run first on teams that run first. Stopping them from passing is a gift.. Fix this and the blow outs stop.

We haven't had good safety play for two years now.

I don't get excited about recruiting anymore. Too many commits flip and it's rare for a recruit to play his whole career at one school.

We only have legit shot at one of them. This class is underwhelming so far.

I’m an offensive guy. Gimme David Sanders and a speedy receiver and I’ll be happy.
