From having the players Ryan needs to be successful.
Define successful. Do we need to be a top 15 D to be successful? Top 10 or top 5?
Or can success be measured by getting timely stops and winning the game because that's exactly what we did today.
If you meant to say we need a couple of drafts to become a top 10 defense I say you are closer to being right though I honestly believe it only hinges on 2-3 players whether that comes in FA or in one or two drafts or whatever it is.
The Dline is good 2 spots deep and we have 3-4 guys that can play ILB. Vaccaro is one of the safeties of the future. We still don't know what we have at OLB because 3 of the top 4 guys haven't played yet.
My worry is Greer is getting older(but clearly still our best corner) and Lewis may not be the long term answer. We could be needing 2 corners and a safety next year.
My hope is Lewis, Galette, Wilson, and Butler(next year) pan out then we only need a corner and a safety.
