Anticipated Defensive Depth Chart for Miami

Sorry it took me an extra day to do the defensive depth chart. I wanted to get a final update before I did.

A few thoughts:

-- The outside pass rush is very uncertain. Burston has been, up to this point, a containment end and Alex Boston was expected to provide the rush. With Boston injured, it's up to Everette Brown to perform on passing downs.

-- The linebackers are ferocious. I think pound-for-pound it's the best linebacking corps in the nation.

-- The secondary has questions. I'm comfortable with Roger Williams and Tony Carter, but the depth at safety is weak. Does anyone walk to see former walk-ons Anthony Houllis and Michael Kornegay playing a lot of downs in the third and fourth quarter? Me neither.

Anyway here's the chart.
