If the three players were 2 Elite OL tackles and 1 Elite MLB I might say we're players away from winning the coastal and contending for a berth into the championship playoffs! I don't think we're there yet. Coastal yes, championship playoffs, no. New Years 6, we could

Defense:
DE - Greg Rousseau
DT - Nesta Silvera
DT - Jared Harrison Hunte
DE - Jalean Philips
LB - Sam Brooks
LB - Corey Flagg
Strkr - Gilbert Frierson
CB - Tyrique Stevenson
SS - Gurvan Hall
FS - Bubba Bolden
CB - Tecory Couch

Offense:
QB: D'Eriq King
RB: Cam Harris
WR: Charleston Rambo
WR: Mike Harley
TE: Brevin Jordan
TE: Will Mallory
LT: Zion Nelson
LG: DJ Scaife
C: Corey Gaynor
RG: Navaugn Donaldson
LT: Jarrid Williams

1. This would be the 1 line in the country, Alabama wouldn't be able to stop two freak 1st rounders. This would have a cascading effect for the rest of the defense.
2. Solid linebacking corps would look to take its game to the next level
3. Secondary has got the talent to get the work done especially with the Dline
4. D'Eriq will be in the Heisman chase
5. Donaldson would drastically improve the run game and Nelson might make all acc this year
6. how in world do you stop rambo, harley, jordan, and mallory
7. not listed but depth is pretty solid.

I think if manny was able to convince those three guys to return than i think the alabama game is a toss-up, they win the rest of their regular season games, acc championship, and meet alabama in the championship again.
What say you
LB play is C level at best Still. We are two stud lb transfers away

I think some people fail to realize how stacked a true championship roster is. Only elite quarterback play can make up for a non elite roster. But you still better be dam good.

Quarterback play
Receivers
Rush the passer

that’s the formula these days. With competency every else and good depth

I think with that roster they're a top 10 team instead of a top 15-20 team. I think the ceiling for them would be to make the playoffs with a little bit of luck. If you think of what they would have to accomplish, they'd have to play Alabama close, they'd have to beat Clemson in the ACCCG, and then they would likely face Alabama again to even get to the national championship. I think that Miami team would be good but they're not definitely not that good.

Better O Line and MUCH better linebackers and maaaaybe you could convince me. You can't be two units short.

How many draft picks would it have taken to stop UNC?

This is such a homer/blinded by my team take.
Brevin is average, if you disagree list the games he took over and dominated a la Winslow.
Phillips gets washed out against anyone above average
And Rousseau is unproven, I’m tempted to call him average also because he never dominated a single game or stood out against any good competition.
Dude you need to watch more football. This is a terrible take.

This is a post you nominate for Dolt of the year!! WOW
