Excellent move, this defense is going to be good. Justin Durant is an above-average player and was on a below-average defense. He will fit right into their youth movement, and be great on the outside. He is good against the pass, and better against the run. He hasn’t posted up a lot of sacks, but on a better defense he might blitz more.
Detroit has a good defensive line that can make the back 7 look better they than are, making life a lot easier for the team. Detroit is building their best team in years, and it’s good timing because 2nd place and a wildcard spot is not entirely out of reach. It would be somewhat of a stretch in their division, but I’ve seen too many “miracle” or “destiny” stories to discount it.
