If they were paying attention, they would have noticed Ballard addressed the DL and defensive backfield. Alot was spent here in $(hankins) and picks (hooker,wilson,hairston). He also put some bandaids on LB. (Cant do it all)
he made us not miss a pretty good punter, and he infused youth everywhere.
Theres no reason to not think he"ll address OL, LB, wr, HEAVY in free agency (we have mucho $) and the draft (great position).
just like the roster turnover last year, we'll improve subtly everywhere and in larger jumps at the positions we all know we will improve in.
the surprises might be players our HC or coords like for potential in their systems.
sure, we have holes still, but this team will look very different come game 1. These guys know this. Its just the easy, lazy story.
