Defense:

This is how I envision our starting defense looking like. You probably will first notice that I have Eric Berry at cornerback. With all this talk about being a safety, nobody has taken notice that Berry has the athleticism/skills to play any position in the secondary. He would be much more useful at cornerback and he would shine there as well. This would give us a great nickle back as well in Brandon Carr. I'm moving Donald Washington to safety because I have heard great things about him but he is raw. He has the athleticism to play cornerback but I believe he could make the transition to safety. I'm still holding out hope that DaJuan Morgan can emerge as a starter but it could be an interesting position battle in training camp. I would love to see Terrence Cody in the middle of our line, where he could plug up blockers and allow our below average lineback corp to make plays. I don't see a lot of difference in our linebackers this year but Corey Mays and Andy Studebaker provide good depth. My only concern is Mike Vrabel, who I see as being a liability as a full-time starter. It would be great to find a replacement for him in the draft. If somehow we don't pick up Cody, I would look to draft someone like LB Jerry Hughes, a player that can get to the quarterback and is very solid against the run. I honestly can only see about two players from this draft being a starter on defense. I would devote our first two picks to defense definitely, and then start looking at upgrades to wide receiver and offensive line for the next two.
