Browning, howbeit imperfect, should obviously start over Borland. The latter hasn't improved in two seasons and is slower than offensive (Cincy game) and defensive (Haskell Garrett last year) lineman.

I'm also beginning to think that Gant would be a better option at SAM. He's showing up more early in his career than Werner has in 1.5 seasons. I'm calling complete and total bulls*%t that Werner is "one of the top guys at his position."

EDIT: Borland and Werner are albatross that are preventing this defense from taking off and being one of the best defenses in the nation.

I think we need to pump the brakes on these plaudits and lofty predictions a little bit. Has he improved considerably since 2017? Without a doubt. However, he really struggled last year in terms of play recognition, angle selection, and tackling. Based on this year's limited and unrepresentative sample, he seems to have cleaned up those problems somewhat. However, I did notice that he whiffed on a tackle against Indiana. Potential to be of the nation's best LBs? I'll have to wait and see.

But you said Dobbins put his foot in the ground last week (and presumably you feel the same way this week). Doesn't that mean he's better than Elliot, who according to Leyer on Fox News, didn't do so in 2015?
