It's Sunday, I'm bored and all I've been doing is catching up on TC write-ups provided by our fortunate brethren here and over at an inferior site...Here's my take "thus far" on our 53...

 

All in depth chart order-

 

QB-

C. Newton

D. Anderson

J. Clausen (wraps up final year of his rookie deal iirc)

 

HB-

D.Williams

J. Stewart

K. Barner (3rd down/receiving threat we've been looking for)

 

FB-

M. Tolbert 

R. Brockel

 

WR-

S. Smith

B. LaFell

T. Ginn (big play ability out weighs the occasional drop given our roster)

D. Hixon (veteran depth, but oft-injured)

A. Edwards (I don't think he makes the team next year though)

D. Gettis (I think his size/speed/potential buy him another year)

 

TE-

G. Olsen

B. Harstock

N. Rosario (along with Barner I'm hoping he surprises a lot of us in the passing game)

 

LT-

J. Gross

B. Campbell (The future???)

 

RT-

B. Bell

G. Williams

 

LG-

A. Silatolu

 

RG-

G. Hangartener

E. Kugbila

 

C-

R. Kalil

J. Beyers (rotational G, to save additional roster spot)

 

LE-

C. Johnson

F. Alexander

 

RE-

G. Hardy

M. Addison

 

DT-

S. Lotulelei

D. Edwards

K. Short (will see a lot of 3rd and pass snaps with 3 DE's)

F. Kearse (I like his size/youth and the fact he has some NFL exp over Gaydosh/Cole)

 

SLB-

T. Davis

J. Senn

 

MLB-

L. Kuechly

C. Blackburn

 

WLB-

J. Beason

A. Klein

 

DB-

D. Florence (exp vet stop gap)

C. Munnerlyn (Capt. as has been plays the nickel vs 3WR)

J. Norman

J. Thomas

J. Dockery  (I'm intrigued by his size and play last year--6'1 it's needed as WR's  seem to get bigger)

 

FS-

C. Godfrey

C. Jones (ST's ace, that's about it)

 

SS-

M. Mitchell (I think his physical play-style eventually supplants Campbell)

D. Campbell (Only other S who could likely back up Godfrey in case of injury--Lester was a FS at ALA however)

R. Lester (with an increase of teams using 3 WR sets and still maintaining a run threat I expect to see more "big nickel" sets defensively to match up, which increases need at SS)

 

K-

G. Gano

 

P-

B. Nortman

 

LS-

J. Jansen

 

KR-

K. Barner

 

PR-

T. Ginn

 

Key Departures-

 

T. Poole-With Williams/Stewart/Barner/Tolbert ahead of him I just don't think his game is dynamic enough to keep a spot on the 53.

 

K. Pilares-One of my favorites but his lack of size and the additions of Hixon/Ginn, new talent at KR/PR, and the potential emergence of AE and there's just no room.

 

J. Adams-See Pilares

 

C. Cole-With a youth movement at DT and NT locked down by Star, it seems more valuable to continue with Kearse as the back up he's  been solid and is an impressive space eater at 6'5 325+

 

J. Williams-With the additions of Klein, and Blackburn along with the "Beasts" return there just isn't enough room

 

D.J. Moore-I think Norman, Thomas, and Dockery bring more to the table, and that Moore was signed originally as a Capt replacement (he's 5'8) before Capt resigned. Coupled with Florence/Capt's nickel experience I don't see a place for him in the secondary. 

 

H. Nakamura-Accept it he failed....miserably and he's not gonna eventually develop into a starter. Time to move on I remember a post with a quote on an inferior site after we signed Naka by his former head coach (J. Harbaugh) that basically said, "he's good but only on ST's" (coming from an eventual SB ring bearer)--For what it's worth I didn't even start this man on Madden lol, he was my 1st cut (I paid the cap penalty proudly :) ).

 

Hope you enjoyed my write-up, and I can't wait, because now that training camp has begun the season will be here before you know it!

Seems awfully thin in the trenches.

 

Also, can't see 3 TEs and 2 FBs making it. I bet they keep Hartstock, who can do both, and drop Brockel.

 

Also feel like Naka makes the team unfortunately. He's the only dude with a decent amount of experience, and safety seems to be one of the places where experience is underrated. He sucks, but coaches will be coaches.

I pretty much agree with all of this.  I think that Josh Thomas might be one of our two starting corners though.

Worthless thread, might as well write "my opinion that I want other people to care about!"

Really it's what day 2,3? Of TC? So why should I even care right now?

i don't see gettis ahead of adams. not saying that adans is special, just that he's shown a whole lot more than than gettis has from the way it sounds. gettis on the 53 is more just wishful thinking than anything at this point.

 

i think the starters on the right side aren't on the roster yet. I'm hoping that we are active in the FA market bc i really don't like what I'm hearing about those guys.

 

not sure about kearse over cole. cole has experience and I've heard nothing at all about kearse so far but i have about cole. we have more than enough youth on the interior. what we need is experience.

Aren't you doing the same thing?  Posting your opinion that you want other people to care about...

 

Just don't engage in the topics you don't like.

From what I seen of Adams today, I think he has a spot on the team.

I almost included Mickell, and Wharton--crossing fingers, especially after Beason's restructure.

We did last year, and I think he offers more scheme flexibility offensively. While I agree Harstock could fill the role in a pinch, I just want Naka gone that damn bad.

I'm dissapointed in the lack of news of Dockery. I thought he was our best CB at the end of last season. I think atm, he looks on the way out. Byers might make it atm too due to the uncertainty of Kugbila and his hamstring. I keep my 53 updated in my link if anyone wants to see.

You didn't have to read the thread, it's title clearly stated the purpose, if you don't care don't take the time to read or offer a worthless comment. 

 

Also I prefaced my post with "It's Sunday, I'm bored..." I'm sure my opinion like many will change as the off-season continues, this is just where I'm at after catching up on the write ups. Also "most fans began caring way before right now..."--just saying.
