The Hamilton situation might be a window into what is actually part of the problem with the defense. There is some high draft pick talent out there that is not living up to it's draft position. And even some mid round picks that are either gone or aren't producing.
2018 - Round 4 pick Kenny Young, LB, not on team
2019 - Round 3 pick Jaylon Ferguson, LB, deceased
Round 4 pick Iman Marshall, CB, not on the team
2020 - FIRST ROUND, Patrick Queen,LB, not living up to pick status
Round 3 pick Justin Madibuike, DT, on the team and playing well
2021 - FIRST ROUND, Odafe Oweh, Edge, on the team, disappointing so far this year
Round 3 pick, Brandon Stephens, CB, on the team, I think his play has been inconsistent but not a washout
2022 - FIRST ROUND, Kyle Hamilton, Safety, on the team, not living up to first round status (way too early to call bust)
Round 2 pick, David Ojabo, Edge, on the team, injured
Round 3 pick Travis Jones, DT, on the team, haven't seen much from him so far but he's also been hurt.
When you look at that, there are 3 straight first round picks that aren't doing a whole lot to help with the defensive problems. Too early to give up on Hamilton and Oweh, but you would hope your first round picks can contribute in year one and certainly in year two. So the big question is are some of these bad picks, are they not being developed, or are they not being used correctly? You would certainly think that with 3 straight first round picks being used on defensive players the defense should not be a soft as it is.
