Defensive End: Improvement. The scheme switch alone will mean that the pressure of getting to the QB will not be squarely on their shoulders, unlike in the Spags scheme. They switch to more containment defense. Cam Jordan will be the biggest benefactor of this change. Also look for Galette to be used in this role, he might do pretty well in it. He's great at moving laterally and will be effective at containing the run and applying some pressure to the QB
Chad said the OP gave everyone to show a chance how smart they are. On the basis of the bolded part of that quote, how have failed the test.
Safety: Improvement. I think Jenkins goes back to CB and Vaccaro takes the starting FS gig. Roman Harper will probably come in on running situations and goal line plays. They might use Bush or Quddus as the second safety in most passing situations. I think Harper will improve this year, just due to the nature of the strong safety in the 3-4.
You think Harper will improve because of the nature of the strong safety in the 3-4, but only have him playing in run situations?
