Last year we carried 4 CB's and 5 Safeties. I'd be interested to know who you think will make the 9 DB cut? (note: Naka has a 2014 void if he's on the roster this year)
Corners: J. Thomas, J. Norman, C. Munnerlyn, D. Florence, D.J. Moore, J. Dockery, M. White
Safeties: C. Godfrey, H. Naka, M. Mitchell, C. Jones, D.J. Campbell, R. Lester, A. Russell, N. Hixon
Bonus: Who do we end up stashing away to the practice squad?
Good question. Most of the answers fail to take special teams into consideration, however, as well as contract status.
I really do not know all of the PS requirements, but I will go forward ignorantly for the sake of learning and discussion:
FS: Godfrey, Jones (I know several of you like CB Melvin White, but I am guessing he becomes a FS--on the PS for now)
SS: Lester, M.Mitchell (Campbell to PS if eligible---I think Lester could be the day 1 starter, which is why he chose the Panthers)
CB: Thomas, Norman, Florence, Munnerlyn, Moore
CUT: Nakamura (Jones is a better special teamer), Dockery (hard to cut a tall, young CB), Hixon, Russell.
Practice Squad: Melvin White, FS/CB; DJ Campbell, SS (if elibigible)
- Jones vs. Nakamura (if Nakamura is not starting, the best special teamer gets the backup FS job)
- Mitchell vs. Campbell (based on the fact that I think Lester is better than both, this is for the backup role)
- I think any combination of the CBs could form the starting tandem.
