I think you’re too easy on the defensive class. The only + position we got was OLB because of Sav’ell. The overall defensive class is closer to a D+ or C- imo. Worst DB class we have had since… maybe since Jimmy Lake has been here? (I still think there are some solid players there, just much lower than the standard that has been set). The DL class was a big whiff, even though there were some recruiting challenges with the weak west coast DL class. Linebackers… at least we are signing a couple I guess? Both of those guys would be great as our third LB we take, not as our top two options. The defense was a poor effort overall.
You’re spot on about the offense though, holy SHIT that OL class is unbelievable. It’s especially great considering how weak the class in the west was for OL. Not only did we get a great class, but no one else in the PAC came close. Our WRs are insanely good, and Mark Redman probably has the highest NFL ceiling of anyone we have had since ASJ.
I would consider this a win if it gets rid of the dead weight in recruiting especially gregory. I think this is also a window to say goodbye to Harris greatly simplifying the recruitment of GA.
