I think it is important for us to look at the Seahawks defensive depth chart, not only because they're the best defense in the league, because of the system that we are trying to produce here in Dallas. LDE - Red Bryant (4rd 08) - Texas A&M, Michael Bennett (FA 13) LDT - Tony McDaniel - Tennessee(UFA 06) RDT - Brandon Mebane - California Berkley (3rd 07) RDE - Chris Clemons (FA 10) - Georgia, Cliff Avril (FA 13) WLB - Bruce Irvin (1st 12) - West Virginia MLB - Bobby Wagner (2nd 12) - Utah State SLB - Malcolm Smith (7th 11) - USC LCB - Richard Sherman (5th 11) - Stanford SS - Kam Chancellor (5th 10) - Virginia Tech FS - Earl Thomas (1st 10) - Texas RCB - Byron Maxwell (6th 11) - Clemson That entire back 7 was created in 3 years. Also note that they've been a top defense the last 3 years. They were pretty bad in 2010. They have 3 of their starters remaining from 2010. They were a top defense in 2011. They have 6 of their starters from 2011. They were a top defense in 2012. They have 7 of their starters from 2012. Here is our projected 2013 depth chart LDE - Spencer (X) DT - Ratliff (X) DT - Hatcher (X) RDE - Ware (X) SLB - Durant (X) MLB - Lee WLB - Carter (y) LCB - Carr (y) RCB - Claiborne (y) FS - Church (y) SS - Allen (X) I've put an (X) next to their names if I think by no circumstances they should be here next year. Many of these players are already gone or they are free agents. I've put a (y) next to their names if I think they should be given a one year trial. Carter is in the final year of his contract. Claiborne actually has two years left, but I would cut or trade him after this year if he doesn't show improvement. Carr I would cut early if he doesn't show improvement and consistency with an improved pass rush. Same goes for Church. The three players who are question marks for the future are Scandrick who we just resigned and Wilcox/Holloman, who might have a future. The entire defensive line should be replaced this year. I'm very adamant about that. I think we could potentially let Holloman start next year in place of Durant and see how he progresses. Wilber could also play into that potentially. I would focus all of 2014 on the defensive line, and then all of 2015 on the secondary if necessary.
