next years' starting lineup

I've been reading a lot of posts about how the roster is so far off that one year won't turn the team into a contender. I agree with that to a certain extent. As it stands right now I believe manning will be cut and the team will be looking 2 to 3 years down the road. I hope I'm wrong but I'm afraid that I'm not. So, here's my take on the starting lineup for next year and no, I don't think the sky is falling and I do not believe that the roster is in complete shambles. Unlike some others here, I do believe that we will run a 3-4 defense next year. Maybe not 100% of the time but I think it could be our base defense next year. So, here's my thoughts:

QB: Luck RB: Addai FB: Carter WR: Garcon WR: Collie LT: Costanzo LG: Reitz C: Pollak RG: Evan Mathis(Grigson has to bring a player or 2 from Philly) RT: Ijalana TE: Dallas Clark(Yes, I think he will be back) DE: Nevis NT: Dontari Poe*(2nd round selection) DE: Freeney LB: Mathis LB: Brackett(yes I think he's gonna be back) LB: Angerer LB: Jerry Hughes(yes, and he surprises everyone by fitting in really well in a 3-4) CB: Powers CB: chase Minnefield*(3rd round selection) S: Bethea S: Bullitt(I think the Colts stick with him even though I'd look to replace him) It's not a terrible lineup. Throw in Jamal Anderson for depth at a 3-4 DE. The colts will sprinkle in a few FA pickkups here and there. I may be all wrong but I see Nevis being a good 3-4 DE and Hughes looking good at a standup rush LB in a 3-4. We actaully have some players here that are suited for 3-4 defense.
