My God how do people here still not know what the lineup is going to be? Riv himself said it. Kuechly-Beason-Anderson. Davis is a package player, he will see action but it will be limited. They're trying to save his knee this year because if he can get through another year without hurting it that thing will be solid as a rock.

I understand where you are coming from, and how you got there. I like Gantt and trust his ensight and knowledge. And normally a #9 pick is pencilled in right away. However, this circumstance is just a tad south of normal. We already have a Pro Bowl MLB. We already have a Pro Bowl WLB. And our Sam LB played at a Pro Bowl level last year. That is a far cry from a normal situation for a rookie.

Sure Davis probably will be eased back in. If he can prove everyone wrong, Luke has his work cut out for him. Too many questions to be able to assert that any one scenario is set in stone. Which is the main reason behind my enthusiasm. The uncertainty is intoxicating. And with my wife, intoxicating is preferable. JK

I know I will be spending more time than normal at TC this year. Too much going on to not be there first hand. I love the camp update threads and all. But nothing beats being there. And this year I plan on being there a good bit. I know that was useless information, but once it leaves my brain, I have no control.

Anyone that claims to know where each player will be lined up at any given moment is feeding you a line of yada yada.


There is no way Davis starts. Beason was drafted to play the Will, while Keek has never played it in his life. No one is feeding me anything, it's logic. BTW I'm not trying to belittle your opinion in any way, because by all means you could be 100% correct. In fact, this is a breath of fresh air to actually be discussing football on this board, which doesn't happen too often during the offseason.

Its not that serious man. You clearly do not understand how professional sports work. Investments play (exception maybe a QB). He was the 9th overall pick. He is getting paid nice $$$. He will play. Probably middle. He will be on the field...accept it


Wow man, that was an impressive way of telling me I'M too serial. I almost wanted to salute and yell "Yes Sir", and I wasn't even in the militay.

In my original comment, I was just busting your balls. I thought it was pretty funny. Evidently I was wrong. I guess I should have inserted an lol, or jk as a qualifier.

Believe it or not, I see him as a starter too. The difference being? I have no clue where? You are behind the Gantt Theory. Sounds like a Ludlum novel. lol (Is that the proper useage?) 1st round picks are assumed starters. Cannot argue that. The money they get pretty much demands it. (Especially nowadays when you can lose them in 4 years.) You want him on the field.

There are 3 trains of thought on this one. 1- He was a MLB let him be a MLB. 2- Beast. 3-Let Rivera decide. My imagination wants Rivera to decide. Cuz it allows for more scenarios.

Actually Kuechly played Will his freshman year in college. He was second in the nation in tackles that year.

I agree, kinda, about Davis. There is a chance he wins his job back. Why Not? Dr. Andersen is a specialist with a great success rate. If anyone can do it, I would be willing to bet it is Davis. Why Not?

Beast was a Will in College, I think. We moved him to Mike. Been there ever since. With good reason. He was not stellar during his stint at Will a few years ago. Although he will be asked to play there occassionally throughout the year. Just a guess. Calm down.

And no, Keuchly has played very little other than Mike. So he would be out of position initially. He is going to have to play all three positions anyway. Why limit him?

I have a particular interest in the LB corp this year. Mainly because, unlike many, I have faith Davis is going to put a monkey wrench into all those "He is a rotational guy" theories. Which will allow for the mad scientist in Rivera to emerge. And that gets my giddy going.

At this time last year we thought we were stacked at LB. Look at how the times have changed. Or have they?

Only second in the nation. Screw this... Cut the guy. jk

He is just too good of an athlete not to be able to play where ever Rivera puts him.

The thinking about putting Beason on the outside has little to do with Kuechly actually. It has more to do with the fact that Beason is versatile enough to play either position and better knows how to play Will. The thinking is that it will be easier to keep Kuechly where he has played most of his college career.

Beason's issues at Will were not that he couldn't play the position but more about him being out of of position and freelancing instead of playing his area and responsibilities. The idea is that he would be better at it this time and not having to go sideline to sideline would help with any lingering issues with his achilles if they are there. Plus he would still wear the green dot helmet and call out the plays.

You don't bench the 9th overall pick in favor of a guy who's wrecked his knee three times.

beason was dreafted to be the eventual replacement for an aging Mike that could never find a way to stay on the field for a whole season.

it wasn't a question of 'if', morgan was going to go on IR, it was 'when'. we all knew that beason was bound to play the mike mainly because of who we had on the roster at that spot. he was slotted to start out at the will, but there was never any doubts by anyone paying attention that it was only a matter of time before he played the middle because of just how unreliable morgan was.

that just isn't the case here. this was a situation where the best defensive player in the draft and one of the best LBs in years just happened to fall into our laps.

it'll be him or a pass-rushing DE with ridic stats

If there would have been a DE with ridiculous stats I will be pissed because we did not draft him
