IMO the 2008 front seven was, at least in hindsight, as solid as our current crop. Though we have some younger guys who may eventually surpass the accomplishments of the 2008 crew.
On DL we had Wootton-Bryant-Gill-Mims as the main starters as well as Hahn, Browne, DiNardo and Watt. Probably more accomplished than or current line at this point.
At LB we had Q Davie, Arrington, N Williams and Kwateng. Probably similar to our current LBs at this point.
I do wish we had our 2008 starting secondary: Mabin, B Phillips, B Smith and McManis - wow. If we have another good corner opposite Van Hoose, I think the lineup of Van Hoose - Campbell - Henry - TBD could be very solid for the next 3 years.
