    Right now on a scale of 1-10

    How much would you say we have improved our Defense?

    Its still a work in progress.

    I'd say a 6 w/out Pickett, a 7 with Pickett.

    I'd give it a 6, still uncertain about the corner spots.
    Hopefully we can get the LB we want in the draft.

    Re: Right now on a scale of 1-10

    It depends on whether Pickett comes back--if he doesn't, Glover might be a short-term improvement, but long-term we will have lost depth and youth at the position. I think Chavous is an upgrade from Archuleta, and the age factor isn't as bad because we have a number of young safeties who could potentially take over when Chavous leaves or if he gets injured. Witherspoon is a huge upgrade, no question. I prefer to reserve judgment on the Brown signing until I have seen him play. If we don't bring Pickett back, I'd give us a 6 based on having at least replaced our losses and having made one tremendous signing. If we bring Pickett back, that's more like an 8.

    No way to tell until we see it on the field. We thought we did a decent job upgrading last year and look how that turned out. Sure some of it was Marmie's scheme, but some of it is on the players. So until we see them it's hard to rate.

    I think Spoon was a great addition especially since he is young, as for the older guys time will tell.

    5 ... We still need another starting safety, another solid CB, another starting LB, a DT to fill in for pickett. And another solid DE incase Hargrove can't get the job done.

    I'm starting to think we haven't done that much, except get a new coach and replace a bunch a players that left in FA.

    Basically we've upgraded our MLB and added CB depth. Not sure if that equates to that much.

    I'd say a 4, mostly because of coaching.
