You'd increase the athleticism and coverage ability at all 3 positions by doing that, while still having a very 'big' defense overall.
What would be the purpose of changing the NFL's best secondary?
Sure they are not all perfect, but collectively, they are as good as a group as the NFL has seen in a long time.
I would concur that Kam, of all the players, was the least impressive. He's still very young and will get better.
The real issue with the playoff games and most of our regular season losses is our run defense. As other posters have mentioned Leroy Hill will not be a starting linebacker for us next year. Honorable mention for most disappointing (IMO) is Red Bryant. The guy got paid and nearly disappeared. Considering how disruptive he was last year and how his specialty was stuffing the run, I don't see how he was worth the money. Still a solid player, but he did not improve and likely regressed.
I'd like to see us bring in Henry Melton and draft a replacement for Hill in the mold of Von Miller (easier said than done). Bruce Irvin must improve and the may need to bring in a couple guys to push him.
