Eli will be able to turn it around and be a pro bowl caliber QB again to help us go on a run.
We can rebuild and make a run at the same time!
The offensive line is rebuilt, and we finally have a professional line! Solder had a good 2nd half last year and will return to good form, Hernandez will be better this year, Halapio is back and will be fine, and the right side will be great with veterans in Zietler and Remmers.
Schurmer will be able to open up the playbook more and be more creative, especially with Barkley! Schurmer will be able to ditch the 4 yard curl/in/out routes to Engram, and checkdowns to Barkely behind the line of scrimmage.
Getting Jabril Peppers is like having the Landon Collins of 2016 reborn! He was a first round pick so surely he’ll be just as good! (sidenote, I actually agree with letting Collins walk, for the money he wanted).
Our CB’s are young, but they are all steals! Every rookie CB we have (Baker, Ballentine, Love) plus Beal could all be starters and immediate contributors. We’ll be fine at CB. We actually have so much talent it will be difficult to decide who will start.
Our LBs have a ton of potential! Lorenzo Carter will come into his own, Oshames will be a good pass rush specialist, Olgeltree is healthy again and will be a leader, and Tae Davis looks like a stud.
Bethea is a veteran leader and is a huge upgrade over Curtis Riley.
We have great depth at WR! Addition by subtraction by getting rid of Beckham! Plus Engram will return from Injury, opening things up even more.
Our DL is so good, especially with adding Dexter Lawrence, that they will collapse the pocket and support a much better pass rush than last year.
Okay, I'm embellishing for effect, but you get the point.
