was a huge key to our success, as overrated as we appeared to be..
it's too bad Hank's gone

but you've got to like this D's potential. They've cultivated something. Scheme-Consistency with many of the same guys in place. On paper this is the best defense we've had since 2007.

And so much room for organic improvement:

All the new faces last year, talented as they were, there is room for increased familiarity and playing better together in a complicated scheme

+ both OV and JPP physically superior versions

+ the prospects of Eli Apple coming back as a confident, Pro Bowl-type CB

+ Goodson replacing Sheppard

+ Darian Thompson returning

We've lost Hank - but we look scary on D. We'll add a veteran run plugger. And maybe we land another pass rusher and/or 3-down LB in the draft.

Agreed. Even without Hankins, the defense is already better than last year's defense.
