  • What position battle will you be keeping an eye on?

    I was looking at the roster this morning and was impressed at the number of battles for roster spots and starting positions there are. the 4th RB, WR, LB ...

    Mine will be the line backers, just think there are so many unknowns that this could and likely will impact the starters and who makes the squad. I have to say Mr Reese, this summer will be very intersting! thanks!

    3rd WR. Will it be Jernigan or Randle?

    Hixon I believe has more developed talent (not necessarily raw talent, but what he can take to the field week 1) and experience than either of these, but he's mostly a slot receiver. He will see duties as a PR again though, and opposite Cruz in any 4 WR sets we may do (Not to mention that should Cruz have to move outside for whatever reason, Hixon is a good choice to move into the slot).

    Barden hasn't shown much of anything after multiple seasons. I predict he doesn't make the team. I would have put Devin Thomas over him had the latter re-signed. Being tall doesn't automatically make you a good WR.

    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

            Definitely, definitely linebacker.

            We all know Boley will start, but I want to see who fills the other spots. Kiwi, Blackburn, Jones, Herzlich, J. Will, hell maybe Adrian Tracy can do something.

            So many YOUNG possibilities.

                    Sash - Brown - hill - jackson, should make for a very interesting battle. I think one of those troubled young lads (jackson or Hill) will crack the roster, and with their potential I wouldn't be surprised to see both making the team.

                      My prediction was Sash and Jackson, but I wouldn't be surprised either if we went 5-deep at safety and took Hill as well...

                        The O-line as a whole. Really to me the only set in their position starters are Snee and Baas. Beatty more than likely starts at LT as well i suppose, thoughI'd like to see competition all over the line. When we had Boothe and/or Petrus I thought our line played much better especially in the run blocking category. It will be interesting to see what happens.

                          Every position was mentioned except TE. I'm curious to see who the coaches keep, and who they start.
                          There will certainly be some changes at LB, safety, and CB on the depth charts. I just hope they can build a chemistry quickly.
                          I think both LB Sintim and WR Barden might be casualties. They've had plenty of time to assert themselves, and haven't... time to move on. I had high hopes for both, and neither has shown a glimmer.

                            Jernigan vs Hixon vs Barden vs UDFA's - 4th,5th,6th WR
                            Rogers vs Austin vs Kuhn- 3rd, 4th DT
                            Robinson vs Pascoe- 2nd TE
                            Blackburn vs Herz vs Jones vs Rivers(?)- MLB

                              Third wr because I made a prediction that our rookie wr will take it.
