Revolutionary Buffalo Bills defense for 2014. Two safeties and 4 D-linemen!
It was interesting to read that Robey and Graham are great tacklers though. Run support CB's are always good to have.
I don't mind the 4 D-linemen route. I prefer Dareus and Kyle talking to each other on the line with Mario next to Kyle and Hughes/Lawson (I know he's not a DE but I like him there if need be) next to Dareus.
Since Kiko is moving outside and Spikes is holding down the fort at MLB, we clearly need another starting OLB. Bradham isn't looking like he's going to be starter material at this point, so either we plug Lawson in as the other OLB and draft a DE who can rotate with Hughes and Mario, or we can draft a 1st round OLB and start the rookie and have Lawson rotate with Hughes and Mario.
Or we can (and this is my wishful thinking) trade down in the draft and have a late 1st and two 2nd round picks and draft an offensive lineman, OLB and DE with the first three picks (hopefully all potential starters) and not in that order. The rest of the draft can be WR, TE, another O-Lineman, DT/NT to rotate with Dareus/Kyle/Branch and SS (also not in any particular order). That my friend, I believe, will shape us into a decent team until we figure out if EJ is the answer at QB or not.
The reason I want to go 2 defensive players with the 1st three picks is because I believe that with an unstoppable D and an above average Offensive Line, our running game will set the tone and EJ wouldn't have to have more than 21 points on the scoreboard to win a game. Two rushing TDs and a passing TD should be enough to win a game. If you have no faith in EJ, then 2 rushing TDs and 3 Carpenter FGs should do it.
Are people weary of our run game also? Ok fine. With a stout defense, one rushing TD and 4 Carpenter FGs might do the trick also.
