TE - Adrien Robinson - "The JPP of TE's" He has size, freak of nature, speed and from what I've seen decent hands
DE - Adewale Ojomo - Looked hungry, aggressive, and promising in the pre-season. Everyone said Cruz was a pre season warrior.
DT - Markus Kuhn - Strong, active, actually stood out against NFL starters, collapsed the pocket a couple times in limited snaps
RT - James Brewer - Do not really know anything about him other than he's 6'6 330 lbs and looks like a a gumba from mario bros :o . Coaches were grooming him as our future at RT if I'm not mistaken?
T - Matt McCants - Know absolutely nothing about him other than he's 6'7 300 lbs and a second year player
T - Brandon Mosley - 6-5 318 lbs, second year player. Again we know nothing about him.
T - Selvish Capers - Seventh round pick (231st overall) of the Redskins, 6'5 315lbs.
LB - Mark Herzlich - With some experience under his belt and another off season, is he finally ready to become an every down LB again?
RB - Da'Rel Scott - Will have another camp/off season to work his way into the rotation. Did suffer a torn meniscus this season and had surgery mid October. SPEED but some question the kid's lateral ability and vision... everyone always questions someone.


Guys like Adrian Tracy, Justin Trattou have never gotten an opportunity.

That's 4 offensive linemen, 4 defensive linemen, 1 TE, 1 LB & 1 RB already on the team either to compete for a starting position or depth.

Other than that do we know anything else about them?


Only guys I feel good about making the team and contributing are Robinson, Ojomo, Kuhn, Brewer, Herzlich & probably Scott . Everyone else your guess is as good as mine.




Did I forget anyone?


Note: I didn't add obvious guys like Will Hill, Stevie Brown, Jacquian Williams

I don't think Herzlich played too well at all this year. Maybe it's a passing phase or whatever... I want to see Ojomo more for sure. If Scott can stay healthy, I think he can be in the rotation for sure. No clue about the rest.

I believe in Ojomo. I would like to see him get a shot.

Let's see...

Robinson - I think he had like 12 total catches in his collegiate career? He was pretty much taken because of his measureables and he is a boom/bust player.

Ojomo - Flashed some potential in the preseason but it's not like he took on excellent tackles. Still, he did make the final roster and I think that says he can be an excellent backup AT THE LEAST. Still need an early round pass rusher in the draft.

Kuhn - Showed how raw he was but there was a few times where he did make an excellent play. Another preseason and training camp should earn him additional rotational snaps.

Brewer - Struggled in the preseason but with Diehl likely going away, he might have a shot in 2013. My expectations aren't that high for him honestly.

McCants - Holy raw batman! This kid looked like the worst offensive lineman I've ever seen. He has the frame to be a franchise LT but none of that matters if he doesn't understand technique. I'm sure he will get another chance in the 2013 offseason.

Capers - Depth/ PS player at best.

Herzlich - I don't know about this one. If it wasn't for the cancer, he probably would of ended up as a beast ILB on someone else's team.

Scott - Unless Wilson, Bradshaw, and Brown have significant injuries, I can't see him moving up the depth chart. He's a phenomenal ST player though.

Tracy - I think this kid could end up replacing Osi if he received enough snaps to make a case. I don't like him at LDE to attempt to hold up against the run.

We need hungry players that have no SB rings yet. They have to want it bad.

I think that's true, when Tuck seemed to want it, like in the post season last year he played well. Against the Patriots for example he was dominant. Players lost the spark, we need the hunger for success. It will nee at least two to three years to solve that, it'll be hard with our cap situation to get anyone in free agency. We need corners, DEs, OLs and LBs badly, but they will take a long time. Maybe its time to take a raw, but athletic DE and try to take a steal at OL or CB in the later rounds. Like Richard Sherman was picked in the 5th round a completely steal and same with Diehl back in the day.

Robinson may be could but Raw. Ojomo needs an opportunity. Kuhn is over rated. He has gotten time and has not done enough to warrrant anything. McCants is useless. He is the second coming of Diehl or did you not watch preseason. Herz is a special teams player at the most. The others the jury is still out.

Kuhn is overrated? Based on what exactly? The limited playing time where he actually produced against starting caliber offensive tackles? If anything Ojomo is overrated yet you say he needs an opportunity? I don't follow.
The second coming of Diehl? So then you mean he has a 8+ year great career ahead of him?
People like you are exactly the type of people Mark Herzlich and Victor Cruz and Eli and Prince etc. LOVE to prove wrong.

I think Robinson shows more boom than bust potential personally.

I think we would be satisfied if just one of these four O-linemen made a serious impact next season and hopefully one of them emerges as depth at worst.

Do we even know if Bradshaw is going to be on the team next year? He's a tough guy sure but he's always injured and his production has decreased partly because of our O-line. Set to make $3,750,000 next season with a $5,250,000 cap hit.... maybe with a better blocking O-line he will be more productive.

Herzlich missed about 6 tackles on Sunday, at least he was in the right spot this time. But you could clearly see the Giants are giving him additional reps.. maybe it's to see what he can do

As for Kuhn, he'll never be more than a rotational player.. which is good enough for me.. He's very active at the LOS, bats balls down.. but he SUCKs against the run as it's easy for him to get pushed around. He gives it 100% on every snap though, that must be why Reese liked him enough to draft.

Ojomo = Who knows if this guy was a preseason warrior or not, it's a shame he couldn't at least get some snaps in the season. maybe he'll get some next week

Adrien Robinson looks like he could be a stud, but gets no playing time because stupid *** Gillbride doesn't trust rookies, him and Bennett could set us good at the TE position

James Brewer looks like he could a stud as well, I remember Gil Brandt saying it's only a matter of time before he took over the RT position.. he was on ESPN's hidden gems, I still think he could pan out.

The other rookies are too raw to even bother getting hyped about

I think Tracy can be the pass rushing specialist replacement for Osi. Ideally, I'd like to add a well rounded DE in the first 2 rounds of the draft that could replace both Osi and Tuck, whom I think will retire at the end of his contract next season (if not now)

Kuhn, Ojomo, Robinson, and Scott are the only other ones I believe could make an impact. Unfortunately, Herzlich does not seem to have it.. at least for us. Wouldnt surprise me if he put it all together for another team...

Why do people continue to say that these young guys have not gotten any opportunity? When you suit up for practice every day is that an opportunity? Im sorry that Mccants, Brewer, and Mosley can not get any time over Cordle and Locklear. Robinson will have a hard time even beating out Beckum and Pascoe....they guy is extremely raw and even Mike Pope said he had a lot to learn. I do not see position coaches complaining...even our running backs coach did not believe Wilson was ready to take over for Bradshaw. I do not see the overwhelming talent on the bench that people seem to believe over college highlight tapes on youtube. I think if I even showed my high school highlight tape years ago, fans would probably want me starting over Marvin Austin lol....its ridiculous.

Wake up people!! Reese messed up by not securing Doug Martin and his draft picks are not developing into great player....even JPP looked sorta average this year. Until his draft picks or free agent busts improve, we will continue to struggle. I never seen a 9-7 team with so little cap space...thank you Reese.
