from last year (worst to best)

unlike many on here, I don't judge defensive ability entirely on +/-

I actually watch them play as well as taking position, line mates, and opposition into account.

Matt Read is awful at defense. He plays against poor opposition, and often was out of place and unaware of what was happening defensively. He falls victim to 'Watching the play' too often. He's a rookie though, so maybe he will improve?
Really? Read and Wellwood? Really? How is that possible? Does anyone else share that sentiment?
