Injuries and suspensions as well unfortunately.


Essentially no LB recruits in '12 and '13

That will haunt a team and it did.

Grace has been hurt and Turner was always a major project from day one.

Gross neglect by Kelly and staff w/r/t LB recruiting.

DB is not much better in '12 and '13. Too many projects. Though somewhat surprised Prosise never stayed at S--given the relative depth/talent there compared to WR.

Kelly has many deficiencies--you can add defensive recruiting to the list. Not good enough.


Shembo, Moore, Grace: LB recruits, 2010-2012
