Based on what? I think we'll be plenty good, but not dominant

We'd need a minimum of 3 significant breakout stars, one at each level (say, Burney, Jackson, and a corner).

In order to dominate on defense you typically need to be able to get pressure without blitzing (which I cannot remember UVA doing consistently since 2007), and you need a secondary that sticks to receivers like glue. Pitt will have 4 NFL linemen, and one of the best safeties in the conference in Ford. Miami has arguably the best defensive end in the country in Rousseau (possible top 5 pick) plus Roche, the dude from Temple who is also an extremely good pass rusher. Those are huge advantages over our versatile, flexible defense that doesn't have proven athleticism in the secondary nor a proven pass rusher that commands a double.
