Not bad....Some over lap on both lines (Elf, Erv, Fox, etc) and LB/DE too (Reddick, burns etc)

Early count shows 49. One more draft on Rhule will have his the beginning of his team. Some are +/- zone like Grier.

Didnt put CMiller, Little, Brown(UDFA), STO.

 

Better,.....MUCH better than I thought where we would be during the 2020 off-season when half the team leftd.

If its gets better I may have to my profile saying, I can not wait.

I think people are going to very pleasantly surprised with Dan Arnold. Granted that I only got to see one game (ARI @ PHI) but what I saw was encouraging.

Darnold to Arnold!

Offense (backups rotation):

QB- Sammy D. (Walker/Grier)

WR's DJ, Terrence M., Robbie, they will line up all over the place including at Nickel (Shi Smith, O. Bayless, K. Kirkwood)

C- Paradis (Elf)

RG- John MIller 

LG- Elf

RT- Tmo

LT- Trent Scott/ Brady Christenson/ or Cam Erving  (I'm really not sure these guys and Greg Little will battle it out in Camp-I think Little loses out and is cut but who knows..the others are retained for depth- if Scott doesn't win the camp battle we might be cut too.)

Troy Pride will be nickle, and Jackson will be out wide.

This will be true most of the time, but I think in order to have the best 3 corners on the field at the same time either Bouye, or Jackson will see some snaps at the nickel

Free agency and draft are in the book. Let's see how we stack up. Based on our very incomplete depth chart, here's how I'm guessing we stack up going into the season.

F8B36910-FD72-4A16-9B60-05A2C3EB9713.jpeg

 

3WR1TE formation shown here with extra positions added to reflect heavier package and reflection on defense. These positions will cover ~85% of snaps in the NFL.

Assumptions: Anderson plays a lot of slot, Chuba is RB2, Christensen wins a starting gig (his competition is greg little lol) and boat sized kid from alabama won't start quite yet.

On defense we see Pride out wide, kicking Jackson to nickel in 3WR packages (half of Snow's snaps) and probably CB2 on 2WR sets. Horn gets thrown into the fire. LB additions kick Chinn back to safety full time as the position is trash and having him and Reddick on the field at the same time is awesome.

Overall weaknesses: CB2, FS, LT, QB

Are we done in free agency? I'd love to see us add a safety and a corner. Ride or die on the ginger cringer. Maybe grab a veteran cut at tackle out of camp.

 

Overall I think this is the best team (outside QB) we've fielded at the beginning of a season since 2017. Given the question mark at QB I'll take it.

 

I've found a picture of who we are replacing potted plant with.

I think you nailed it. Eflein may start over Miller.

May? Elflein and Erving are being paid $4.5M and $5M a year with $14M guaranteed. They are earmarked as starting with Paradis and Moton. The question is whether Christensen can start at LT and if any other rookie can break into the starting lineup. Little is likely gone and Daley is a backup. Miller is getting $1M for 1 year. He’s the backup.

Unless Elflein and Erving suck balls they are starting. That leaves one open starting spot barring a rookie looking stellar, locking up another starting spot and putting Elflein or Erving on the bench.
