1. We're losing almost as many starters in the secondary and just as many players back there overall counting the transfers.
2. Lots of guys got meaningful playing time upfront on the line, not so much at corner (where we're really hurting for depth).

I think this is one of the few times where the backup QB battle is really an important position battle to watch for the simple fact that it is a big question mark going into next season. Usually you can't tell a whole lot until they get put infront of the firing squad on Saturdays, but seeing how Nosovitch and Mitch have grown the past year is definitely important.

Other than that, all attention should be on the defensive backfield. Too bad we don't have many bodies back there right now, specifically at Corner. I'm interested to see/hear how TJ Gurley looks because we need him back at 100%.

To each their own, that was my opinion.

On paper, the only place on defense where we're better next year is at LB. CB is really a huge concern as is DE (I'm hoping a guy like David Johnson might emerge) We're OK at DT although I certainly don't think we're elite.

Offensively not having the mobility of C. Shaw will create some problems. The one & only way this unit improves is if the OL makes a big jump. There's not gonna be a QB bailing us out on 3rd & 8 with his legs.

I'm also in the camp of backup QB development being essential for a number of reasons.

If we take care of the ball & play sound defense we'll be fine. It's just the margin of error will be less next year than previous years imo. I see a whole gotta games on that schedule we could win, I also see more than a few we could lose.

We need to see some players step up on defense.
