The strength down the middle is key.The idea of the defensive line collapses the center of the pocket, so the QB cannot step up.The ILB/MLB, with the DTs/NT stop the running game up the middle.The safeties are the last line of the defense. Again, if the safety moves up in the box, again they stop the running play. A strong set of safeties prevent long offensive plays.Again, other members might have their descriptions. If the Browns move to the 34 or a hybrid type defense, they need a top quality free safety.Now we know the second corner is required and some believe two additional CBs are needed.The pass rushing OLB, such as Dion Jordan.Lets see what they do in free agency and the draft.
