    How would YOU make our defense better?

    On defense, I would like to see us cut Bell, and draft Mark Barron in the first. Cut W. Allen and S.Smith and sign FA Courtland Finnegan. By cutting bell and Smith, that would free some cap space to also sign Mario Williams. Defensive line id like to see us let Soliai walk and go with Starks and Odrick up front.This is just my opnion, what would you do?

    from what I hear, they are keeping it. Just doing like we've done for the last few years and running a 4-3 3-4 hybrid.

    Get another pass rusher on other side of Wake and catch the ball in the secondary for starts.

    There are conflicting reports about what defense we are going to run next year but if we run out of a base 4-3 like many people believe then these are the things we need to do:

    1.) Upgrade the pass-rush and find a pass-rushing DE- Wake will switch to a DE but we will need to add somebody to the opposite side, some options could be mario williams, robert mathis, cliff avril, or quinten coples. This will allow starks and odrick to switch inside and mcdaniels can rotate as well, look for us to add depth to that position maybe pat sims from Cincinnati.

    2.) Find an upgrade to Koa Misi- Dansby will probably play inside and Burnett will play OLB, so maybe somebody like EJ Henderson or Anthony Spencer.

    3.) Upgrade the secondary- Vontae is safe and has the ability to be elite if he keeps his head in the game, Smith is overrated and I would love to see upgrade at boundary corner, we also need a FS and Bell has to restrcute his contract or he will be a cap-casualty, Reggie Nelson is an option at FS, and we need a Nickel Corner as well, look for Jarrett Bush from GB to be an option.

    Why are you cutting Sean Smith? He does not make that much money.

    I'd like your plan a little better if we had a QB but we need to invest in one somewhere in the offseason.

    I do not understand cutting S.Smith, the guy makes basically league minimum and has played well. I get the upgrade but why not keep S.Smith for Nickel/Dime or FS.

    I also do not have a problem with YB, it's FS that needs a major upgrade if your going that route. Y.Bell needs to restructure if not then I would consider cutting him.

    I would go hard core after DE M.Williams in FA, the front 4 would be freakin' nasty. He'd be real expensive but would put our defense to another level.

    I would also love to trade back in the 1st and grab another 2nd, we need OL, MLB, and more receiver help.
    Take your QB in the 1st with Tannehill or Weeden.
    In the 2nd I'd be all over V.Burfict if he fell to play the MLB with Dansby and Burnett. This draft seems to have some decent depth at safety so you could look at your 2nd or 3rd for safety help.

    Or let's float this idea.....

    DE M.Williams in FA
    DE Q.Coples in the 1st
    Trade C.Wake for a late 1st or early 2nd - GB might salivate having Wake with C.Mathews and jump at the chance to get a guy with a dirt cheap contract.
    MLB V.Burfict in the 1st
    DT B.Thompson in the 2nd
    S A.Allen in the 3rd

    That's turning a 34 defense into a dominant 43 in a hurry, IMHO
