I think that a lot of people on this board would agree that the D-Line is the #1 priority this offseason. I would argue that it goes much deeper than just plugging in a DT or DE here or there. In fact, I don't believe the Seahawks have had a D-Line unit since the days of Green, Nash and Bryant. Sure we had Tez in there along with Sam Adams at times, but there has not been a D-Line UNIT since the 80's. There has been a smattering of good dlineman over the years, but they have lacked the continuity and cohesion that a unit can bring.
The d backs are the Legion of Boom. One could argue that the LBing Corps is almost there. Find a replacement for Hill that is along the lines of KJ and Bobby and they too are a unit amongst themselves.
I remember when Jeff Bryant was drafted a year after Jacob Green. Everyone was asking why, since there was already a high pick on a DE used the year before.
Currently on the D-Line we have Clemons on his 33 year old bad leg. We have Bruce Irvin who may never develop into an every down player. We have Mebane who isn't getting any younger. And finally we have a platoon of guys who may need to be resigned or further developed. Scruggs and Howard are clearly developmental guys. Branch may or may not be resigned and Jones, who knows. If we look at the stre4ngths of the current D-Line going forward, we would have to agree that Mebane is the only solid piece we have.
JS/PC have done a good job of remaking the rest of the team. Its time they focus their attention and completely remake the D-Line. Time to get your turn over every rock mentality going to work your majic on the D-Line. Looking at the LOB and the potential of the LBers, we can see how important it is to build a UNIT and not just plug in guys.
