In Topic: Cotchery as #1 WR or Bell at starting LT or rookies starting at both positions

31 March 2014 - 04:01 PM

I honestly don't think we'll go into next season with either of the scenarios of Bell starting LT, or a Rookie starting LT.  I think we'll draft someone to take over, but I think we'll let some moves happen and see what's available in the cheaper pile of free agents at the end, or possibly after some cuts are made, possibly a cap casualty of a LT with some experience is let go for a decent younger guy from another team, and we'll make a move on the older guy for a rental until the rookie gets up to speed.

 

That's just not a position that you can go into the season with inexperience like what we have on the roster, so I think a rental for a vet that has a clue of what's going on will be our likely course.  I think it's much more plausible that we can go into the season with no legit #1 receiver than there is we can go into the season without a legit LT.

Hypothetical question...Whos was a worse contract, Mike Wallace or J-Stew?

Not saying they would. Point is for a guy making the transition from the Sun Belt to the NFL he did pretty well. 

 

Actually, I've said it before, but it really isn't that big a surprise from the Cajuns.  In the NFL right now, the Cajuns have Mike Adams, Bill Bentley, Charles Tillman, Ike Taylor, and Melvin White on NFL Rosters right now.   We may not be a Power Conference school, but we sure as hell know how to produce some NFL level defensive back talent.  This is also why I wasn't entirely surprised by his progress.

I dont know that CB is a huge need for us anymore....just an awakening that I had.

 

This is my thought process to a degree, and was kind of along the lines of what I was saying from the beginning.  Cason provides us a 1 year flier, and I have high hopes he will perform very well and White will be fine on the other side.  This will allow us to go double up on either WR or Oline in the drafts first 3 rounds.  This doesn't mean to ignore it all together, because someone has to step into White/Cason's role a year from now, so you can look at CB in the 4th or 5th and groom them for next year.

I'm still very much on the Melvin White bandwagon for obvious reasons.  I think he will be a good #2 for us this year and help provide some needed depth at a position we are light on.
