A look at the roster for 2012 (D-line/LB)



DE: Redding-Nevis-Moala-Mathews-Ogbu

Redding provides some much needed experience in this defense, but isn't exactly entering his prime, the rest are all DT's playing DE, Nevis looked good last year, when healthy. Not much depth here, don't think Ogbu is a good fit for DE

NT: Chapman-Johnson-McKinney

Johnson will probably start out the year and eventually backup Chapman, McKinney is a huge body with experience in this defense. Johnson might be a better fit at at DE, not alot of depth here either.

OLB: Mathis-Freeney-Hughes-Addison-Fugger

Should be a very interesting position, I think its a great fit for Mathis, not sure about Freeney. Could be a savior for the yet-to-produce Hughes, (repeat) not alot of proven depth here

ILB: Angerer-Conner-Edds-Galippo-Harvey

Angerer and Conner will be tackling machines in the middle. No depth here at all, I like Galippo over Harvey

Ken, I think one key to who remains in the LB corps etc. is with Pagano you must be willing and able to play specials teams. This may be why a Harvey beats out a Galippo or even Justin Hickman over a Fugger.

I totally agree as you probably remember that this is a big chance for Jerry Hughes!!!

Lastly, I am anxious to see if some of the UFAs can make the DL. It is going to be interesting.

It will be interesting to see how the defense comes together - agree depth could be concern. Also, could be good test year for Hughes - will have a chance to develop as a good LB/pass rusher.
