The 7th round picks will be depth and will be of little consequence to the starting roster, but in the meantime we have quietly replaced every player that was let go from last year's squad. Interesting to see the way everything has panned out:

RB: Michael Turner ---> Steven Jackson
TE: Tony G ---> Tony G! + Levine Toilolo


LE: Ray Edwards ---> Mallicah Goodman
RE: John Abraham ---> Osi Umenjoya
RE: Lawrence Sidbury ---> Stansly Maponga

CB: Dunta Robinson ---> Desmond Trufant
CB: Chris Owens ---> Robert Alford
SS: Willy Mo ---> Willy Mo

With the two exceptions being filled with our top picks from last year's draft
(C: McClure ---> Hawley/Konz)
(RT: Tyson Clabo ---> Lamar Holmes)


I gotta say, I really like the direction this team is headed in. Younger and quicker and more versatile in all areas, while preserving the key players that are still performing at a pro-bowl level

RCB: Samuel
LCB: Trufant
Nickel: Mcclain
Dime: Alford

FS:Decoud
SS: Moore

what scares me about the secondary is the inexperience of our CB's aside from samuel.

Rookies havent shown us anything and mcclain could be a 1 year wonder

we need to go out and sign someone,maybe charles woodson, marcus trufant?

i still think we should sign Abe to a 1 yr contract jus as a situational player. maybe limited snaps for the regular season will keep him healthy for the playoffs

Charles Woodson is a safety and is done in the league. Trufant is awful. You dont draft two corners in the first and second then go out and spend money you dont have on vets that dont have half the talent as the guys you drafted.

They just signed Shaun Phillips so I'd say that's a no to Denver. He probably is too much but I'm just wondering.
