Remember that Rex had a top 5 defense with Leonard and Eric Smith starting. Even if Allen and Bush aren't great they can't be much worse. Plus we'll likely keep Bell at a cheap price.
Our defense will not be an issue next year. Our offense is what scares me and there isn't much we can do in this draft to address our lack of play makers on offense.
Agreed we may not fix the QB issue, but we have to view the offense as a >1 year project. If not a QB, let's build up the OL, WR, TE, RB positions as best we can.
