That's a reasonable analysis. I think everyone is counting on Stokes to play well. Slaton and McDuffie were pleasant surprises and hopefully their PS performance carries over to the regular season.My guess and obviously just a gut feeling. A slight step - backwards with 1st year DC would be offset by a slight + in personnel (+Stokes + Slaton+ McDuffie) Kirksey n Campbell are a wash and 1 year extra experience there throughout. Our D floor stays 2020 relative, but our ceiling went up Slightly imo.
It looks like this is Rodgers last year in GB. Assuming they can get some pretty good draft capital in a trade, I wouldn't mind if this team flipped the script and developed an elite defensive unit. This assumes that Love proves capable of at least being a good game manager and moving the offense. With the addition of Hill (a seventh round pick no less) the offense could focus on the running game. They've got three very promising back in Jones, Dillon, and Hill. Fill the holes at ILB and DL and the D starts to look very, very good.
This would be a real switch. GB has been an offensive powerhouse for most of the last 30 years. Of course they had back-to-back HOF QBs as well. And I still believe that while offense might get a team to the playoffs, it's the D that wins games when the lights are the brightest.
I got way off topic. Yeah, their D should be similar to last year, with a higher ceiling as you note.
