Well now that the draft is over, did we address our needs?
In some areas we did. Such as defensive backs on defense. That is an area where we struggled greatly last season. With Jimmy Smith being hurt we had no one else other than Tavon Young who was a rookie in that position and played pretty good. Not as strong as Jimmy though. We picked up Marlon Humphrey from Alabama, a physical corner.
Another area was a pass rusher, with Elvis Dumervil gone we addressed that with the pickup of Tyus Bowser OLB from the University of Houston, he was the #5 edge defender in the run stop. This is an area where we were lacking with only 1 sack of the quarterback the whole season. We also picked up a gem of the 5 stand technique in DE Chris Wormley from the University of Michigan. We also picked up OLB Tim Williams from Alabama who was a third round steal pass rusher.
