Depth is good, but IMO replacing Clark is no sure thing and Aaron Smith simply cannot be replaced with no drop-off at DE.
I agree with DE... which is why I didn't list it. However, I am VERY comfortable with Clark being replaced by Smith. Smith played very well last year. He only had a couple rookie mistakes, which can and should be expected. The only way to learn is to play.
