Its all about the front seven in my opinion.
We need help rushing the passer (need a pass rushing DE)
Should DT Sedrick Ellis leave, he needs to be replaced. Ellis didn't do that much to help his case in his contract year so it looks like he may be out.
I would like to see us get a LB in the 3rd round. If we had a 2nd round pick, the LB from Rutgers(Khaseem Greene) would be a guy I would want. But I don't know if he will be around in the 3rd.
I know our secondary isn't all that great but the lack of pass rush doesn't help them either. And the run defense this year was just awful.
With all of the new rules in favor of the offense, the secondary will always be under fire. So stopping the run and rushing the passer are the answers in my opinion. Getting more turnovers would be nice too.
