MLB & DT depth scares me but it's looking solid so far. though Blake is gonna be a G first so it's likely he might beat out Beadles to start.

A lot of underwhelming names on that list. Wish the draft could have did a little more. Meh.

Its definitely an improved roster from last year leaps and bounds. Philip Blake will end up starting at G or C hes going to start I just got that feeling.

I think we re-sign Marcus Thomas eventually.

as for the rookies I think they all make the team.

Moreno is likely gone... he might be the 2nd best back on this team, but he isn't Fox's guy and has been a bust so far - plus I think McGahee, Hillman, Ball and Fannin all make the team.

Moreno depends on his recovery and his ability to catch passes.

I'd be surprised to see Moreno on the team come the start of the season. They didn't trade up for Hillman to be a backup's backup.

You lost all street cred listing Brock (Zero NFL experience, and only 1 year of college) over Hanie and Weber on the depth chart.

Moreno might be done.

Too slow and fragile to return kicks. Not a special teams demon. He's coming off both a major injury and a high profile off the field incident. At this point Ball might have more value to the team just based on his special teams abilities.

Moreno better really get his timing down with Manning, because unless he's catching everything thrown at him and carves out a 3rd down Kevin Faulk type role, he's gone.

15-20 carries for Willis
5-10 carries for Hillman as a change of pace back
Mario Fannin flashed something last camp
Jeramiah Johnson could make the team and plays special teams
Lance Ball is a grinder and plays special teams.

I love the CB position. Lot of good things said last year about Vaughn before he got hurt.

There's no reason not to keep Moreno as the 3rd RB. Dude is at his best when he's catching passes.

They may even want to keep four. It would be nice if Willis gets no more than 10-12 carries per game.

Idiot, colquitt was the best player on our team last year. Most consistent. He was so good that I was actually in favor of punting on 3rd down since it was obvious teblow wouldnt convert the down anyway.

I like the squad overall. Should be a playoff contender for sure. Besides manning, what im looking forward to the most is seeing how our defense plays under del rio. I hope to be attacking blitz heavy like we were at times last year.

I like that we got some pass rushing disruptive defensive tackles. I know people wanted some fat boys to clog the middle but, we already have the outside rush with miller and dumervil. We need a rush up the middle. I bet were all tired of watching ayers fail at getting pressure while playing DT on 3rd downs.

Lets just hope wolfe is not the next mcbean.

They just took him in the 2nd round after trading the guy who got them to the Divisional Round of the Playoffs for a 4th rounder. He could be mentally you-know-what and he'd be the #2.
