Or secondary gets better when we have a pass rush and pressure from the DLine.
And, that's one less roster spot for a rookie, which it makes it even more clear that they're planning on making some interesting moves on draft day. They'll either move up and draft someone like Sheldon Richardson, Star Lotulelei if he drops past #15 or a top corner like Trufant or Rhodes.
OR, they might trade #31 for a first rounder next year for a team looking to secure a young QB (Nassib, EJ Manuel or even Mike Glennon), knowing they can still get good talent at #34. That sounds more like a Baalke move than trading up.
