Our run defense was terrible this past year
I agree about run defense. It was the worst I've seen in a long long time by anyone. And it's a bigger problem than the pass defense IMO. I was only answering the question presented.
And the LBers weren't great in coverage, but most LBers aren't.
I think our secondary was mismanaged all year.
CB: Greer is fine at CB. PRob is good at man to man. Jenkins has been good at nickle and spot play at CB in the past. White got better as the year went on as a spot/nickle CB. Same for Mack.
S: Harper is good at run support and average at best in coverage. Jenkins was just out of position all year, but hustled. IAQ played well at both safety spots.
IMO, Jenkins, IAQ and Harper should have been moved around more. Harper and IAQ at S and Greer and Jenkins at CB on 1st down in Spag's zone to stop the run. IAQ at safety with Greer and PRob at CB and Jenkins at nickle/rover on 2nd/3rd and long in more man to stop the pass.
It's not rocket science or anything!
