Even CBM probably holds himself accountable

CBM may have missed on the continuity plan at DB, but he certainly has made up for it in succession planning at QB, OL, WR, DL, LB, and ST players. The 2 personnel areas where we have "missed on recruiting" are at DB and RB. Interestingly those are two areas (along with the DL) where CML excelled and brought them in from predominantly VA.

I think we should be honest with ourselves about the recruiting rankings of Thornhill and Hall. They were middling in the recruiting rankings but ended up being two excellent DBs. The only DBs that CML brought in that garnered a lot of attention were Blanding, Harris and Nicholson. Only Harris, after 5 years and being sidetracked by injuries, ended up meeting up to those expectations. I suppose you could include Minnifield in there as well but I am not sure he was even a consensus 4 star.
