So looking at our Defense now as it is, I say we finish with a Top 5 Unit. The D-Line is more than complete. The secondary is coming along, and linebackers are good, but we still need an edge rusher.
So next year in the draft, if your Idzik, do you draft defense in the first couple rounds and COMPLETE the defense, where most of the starters would be 25 and under, essentially making a perennial Top 5 Defense for at least the next 5 years? Imagine our current pass rush + Anthony Barr. He is playing amazing this season. (18 Tackles, 5 TFL, 1 Sack, 3 Forced Fumbles). The way we are playing, we might be out of reach to get him, but its still something to thing about...
Do you go all in on Offense? Draft the top skill position players and lineman and get some balance on the team. Keep your top 5-10 Defense in tact, but through the draft, at least build an offense that can rank middle of the pack?
I think if we had Barr, and spent our early round picks on Defense, it would literally be almost impossible to score points on us. Especially in a passing league. Having Mo, Rich, Snacks coming up the middle and Barr blazing from the edge......QBs would have milliseconds to get that ball out.
But maybe its time to finally balance this team? I still cant decide.
