Mock half way through FA

Can you breakdown the defensive front, especially now with Flowers on the roster? Ourlads.com has the Lions in a base 4-3 (I know we're 'multiple') with Hand backing up Flowers, Robinson and Harrison as starters at DT and Okawara as DE starter opposite of Flowers.

I know you've mentioned that you wouldn't be fond of a guy like Devin White coming in as well. I'm not thrilled with Okawara being relied upon as a starting end. That sounds like more of what we've done in the past.

Trey Flowers is the starting defensive end. The Lions will really only have one "defensive end". The Jack LB spot (where Devon Kennard starts) is basically like the other DE spot, but they play from a two point stance and not a three point. Romeo Okwara is now the backup to Trey Flowers. Damon Harrison is the starting nose tackle. A'Shawn Robinson is his backup. Da'shawn Hand is the starter at the other defensive tackle spot. He doesn't really have a backup at this point, it could be Ricky Jean-Francois if they re-sign him or a rookie they draft one in like round 5 or 6. Devon Kennard is the starter at the Jack LB spot. Eli Harold was his backup (hopefully they can re-sign him). That spot is like a 3-4 OLB. It has a lot of the responsibilities of a defensive end but they stand up and drop into coverage once in a while. Jarrad Davis is the starter at MLB. Christian Jones is the starter at WLB. Jalen Reeves-Maybin can backup both spots. The WLB is probably the least important starting position on the defense because that's the spot they sub out when they go into heavy coverage packages. The WLB spot can play like a traditional 4-3 OLB, it can play like a 3-4 OLB, and they can even put them out in coverage over the slot. It really doesn't have a true role in the defense, they basically just use that spot to matchup against what the offense is doing on any given play.
 

Depth chart listing would look like this:

DE: Trey Flowers - Romeo Okwara
NT: Damon Harrison - A'Shawn Robinson
DL: Da'shawn Hand - Ricky Jean-Francois/Rookie?
JACK: Devon Kennard - Eli Harold?

WLB: Christian Jones
MLB: Jarrad Davis - Jalen Reeves-Maybin

So I'm assuming in this set up we're playing 3 CB's/2 S or 3 S/2 CB depending on the playcall…

Yeah, the base defense will have 5 DBs

Trenches will likely be the pick. I hope Deebo makes it to 56.
