If there is some kind of silver lining is that the post-Philbin/Coyle pass rush, even without Wake, has been outstanding, and should be in place for at least next year.
I would expect a decent draft pick, somewhere in the top 12. So perhaps we end up with a stud linebacker of the Kuechly mold. And maybe even Dion Jordan manages to chip in next year.
I imagine that Lamar Miller won't be back, which isn't the end of the world as Ajayi has shown a lot. But for jeebus's sake, get Devante Parker in the game. At the very least we need to know if he's any good.
