    Do we need anymore defensive upgrades or are we set?

    I think we are set defensively if our picks pan out. Dion Jordan solidifies our oline and really leaves no holes. Jamar Taylor and Will Davis do the same for our secondary. With us drafting Jelani Jenkins, I think our LBs are stacked. I see no holes in our D, IF ALL WORKS OUT. I thought we would do the exact opposite and totally fill all offensive holes in the draft but, I like what we did for the offense. Thoughts?

    We'll see how this secondary turns out... We know we have 1 stud back there in Jones. Clemons hasn't done much, maybe he can bust out this year, and our corners... Well we'll see lol

    I would still like to upgrade FS, but its not like its a glaring hole like CB and DE were.

    I would agree. Our D-line has Wake, Jordan, Vernon, Odrick, Soliai, Starks. Odrick can play DT more with the addition of Jordan. If Jamar Taylor wins a starting spot we should be ok at CB. LB depth seems good. S depth is up in the air, Wilson should be moved back to the S position.

    I think we are set. We have a few safeties that will push the starters, and a few LBs that could take the place of last year's backups.

    And don't forget Shelby, Randle, and Martin. Our DL is pretty much set in stone. I don't think Jordan will see much action at DE this year however. He will be a 3rd down standing rusher. Maybe by next year he will be a DE, but his rookie year he will have to get stronger.

    Id like to upgrade Clemons. Also, you can never have enough pass rush and corners, just saying.

    I think Clemons has already proven himself, having played pretty durn well last season. Obviously he didn't break out to the degree that Jones did, but he was still generally solid.

    He has proven himself to be mediocre... he wasn't terrible, but didn't really bring anything to the table either. If we don't upgrade his spot, it won't be the end of the world for us, but as of right now, he is definitely not a permanent solution as a starting safety.
