i don't know if they have the personnel to continue the 3-3-5. dunlap was absolutely necessary because he was so good and needed so much attention. spikes was the most critical because he could play on the line and rush rather well, or drop back into coverage extremely well and that varied every single play.
ryan stamper was also helpful in that case because spikes could do what he want without having to worry about barking out orders to everyone while stamper was the one commanding the defense.
now all of them are gone
isn't bostic that freshman (will be sophomore next season) middle linebacker that got injured? that kid was pretty solid.
edit: the 3-3-5 was such a funny thing to watch because it always ended up being either a 3-3-4-1 or a 4-3-3-1. you gotta love when the players play their roles so well, you can gameplan an eleven on ten and just have a guy play 40 yards off the ball and keep everything in front of him essentially guaranteeing there will never be a massive play.
