We have a lot of needs on both sides of the ball. But I look at a very important stat from last season.
Defense: total plays from Line of Scrimmaged- Ranked 4th with 1,062 ranked 3rd yards per game
Offense: total plays from line of Scrimmaged - Ranked 14th with 1,019 ranked 25th yards per game
We had the ball a ton of times but did nothing with it. We were on the Field a lot on Defense but gave up a ton of yards. Both are not very good stats to have. If we are doing nothing with the ball that means the Defense is on the Field too long, which was the case last season. Another stat we sucked in is 1st downs per game ranked 25th with only 16 1st down per game.
What hurt us more the Defense or Offense?
For me it was the lack to control the ball on offense. We ranked 31th in three and outs last year. I think that hurt us the most. On Defense we ranked 18th on three down. That means the Defense was mid pack on getting off the Field. But, lets face it the Defense couldn'tstop and High School team at times last season. So, with that said I have no clue on which way we go in the draft. My thoughts are we go Defense. All the FA pick ups we had this off season were on the Offense side of the ball. Zero were on the Defense.
