Yes. I may be wrong, but I don't think it's a scheme problem. However, it could be that young, inexperienced players are struggling with understanding positioning, gaps, coverages. Those issues can make a player look slow, to some degree.Yes,Taulia could have a very good year when it's all said and done. They also have some real quality receivers. My concern is that one of the problems with this defense can't be cured completely by scheming: slowness of foot.
I remember during the darkest of the Robb Smith days, players looked really slow. After Smith was let go there was a lot of talk about simplifying the defense, and suddenly the very same players appeared to be much faster.
