Predictions of starting Defense on Game 1?
Obviously like the rest of you I have no idea what Reese will do in the draft, so here is what I am assuming our starting Defensive unit will look like on game 1:
DT- Cullen Jenkins
DT- Linval Joseph
DE- Justin Tuck
SLB- Keith Rivers
MLB- Dan Conner
WLB- J. Will
SS- Antrel Rolle
FS- Stevie Brown
(Will Hill coming in on 3S sets)
CNR- C. Web
I guess pretty easy except Kiwi's position change isnt certain, in which case I would switch him with Rivers and have Rivers split time with J Will. Also I have a feeling Corner will be a position of strength for us next year. My prediction: Prince gets better, Webby has a comeback year, Hosely plays aggressive nickle and Ross provides excellent depth at Dime.
with this team they'll be lucky to have a fully healthy defense by the start of the season. expect a couple of those guys to be out week 1.
Honestly, I agree that this will be the starting line up, (unless they draft a kid that wins a starting job) and that is really scary. If Tuck and Webster play similar to last year, we are in big trouble.

By the end of the game Keith Rivers will get hurt by getting Gatorade in his eye.
Hopefully Ogletree can play for us week 1, if we draft him. Hopefully T2 and Aaron Ross, and Ryan Mundy can be in to play too. Possibly a Baccarri Rambo drafted too. Hard to say. We'll see after the draft towards Mid- July.

If we draft Rhodes, id think they'd give him a couple of weeks at least as a nickel corner before putting him on the outside, just to get his feet wet.
