Adam Patrick is full of it. Anthony Harris had two superb seasons, starting nine games in 2018 and 14 in 2019. He also had a very good year making three starts in 2017. He did have a bit of a sophomore slump in 2016 (three starts), but that had followed a very good rookie season, with its two starts.

His annual PFF grades since he entered the league as a 2015 UDFA: 78.1, 52.8, 74.3, 89.0, 90.5 and 66.2.

Xavier Woods PFF grades since he entered the league as a 2017 6th rounder: 72.4, 70.5, 73.0 and 61.9. He’s never graded out as well as Harris, though he had three good years.

I love me some Andrew Sendejo, but let’s add him to this comparison, from 2013 on: 61.5, 72.0, 52.8 (2015), 64.1, 77.1 (2017), 69.7, 73.3 and 42.6. He’s had two years with better grades than Harris, in 2016 and 2017, and two or three other good years.

The fact is, we probably upgraded CB with Peterson and Alexander in and Hill and Jones out, but we probably downgraded S with Woods in and Harris out. The defensive line shows a similar see-saw, upgrading enormously at DT with Pierce and Tomlinson in and Stephen and J. Johnson out, but downgrading a bit at DE with Weatherly in and Odenigbo out. Overall, the defense was upgraded, no doubt. But not at every position.

I’d love to see some of the guys with workout bonuses exercise some leadership and solidarity by not attending.
