Practice Squad:
- DE Jack Crawford
- OL Manase Foketi
- CB Adrian Bushell
- OLB/DE John Youbouty
- DT Gilbert Pena
- QB Mike Hermann
- FS Daimion Stafford
- OT Jason Weaver

Outlook: The arrival of Eric Fisher and the switch to the PBS changed the game for us, in my opinion. With two great tackles at either end and a talented young center, the guard position becomes less important. This is a team that will run the ball and play possession football. We have playmakers capable of hitting the big play and now we have a line and a running game capable of grinding out the tough yards. Our defense is still a work in progress, but signing Sims/Walker and taking Jenkins combined with our new LB corps makes me feel better about defending the run. I believe we are more talented in the secondary than we were last year, but obviously it is still our biggest question mark.

Strengths:
- Our rushing attack should be closer to what it was before the arrival of Greg Knapp. A bigger, stronger line and a RB corps with a legitimate second option with Le'Veon Bell.
- Flynn should have enough time to make the throws with our new bookend tackles protecting him.
- We have a lot of mass on the inner portion of the defensive line that should be more adept at stopping the run than the combo of Seymour/Kelly/Bryant were.

Weaknesses:
- The secondary is still patchwork. There are playmakers but nobody in the group can be labeled consistent. This is our biggest weakness.
- We didn't acquire a great passrusher, but the arrival of Mincey helps the rotation and fills the void that Shaggy left at that spot.
- I am concerned about the lack of a legitimate starting TE, although I like Fauria's chances in the future.

So how should we come to a consensus? Positions in the secondary we seem to differ on.

LB- Roach and Kevin Burnette are obviously going to start at MLB and WLB respectively. Maiava and Burris would compete for the SAM spot. Goethel would finally make the team if he could finally stay healthy.


I thought Burnett played Sam backer for the phins?

Further I find it difficult to project a 220lb LB to play the strong side, when his strength is in coverage.

Burris, though largely still an unknown commodity, I even think fits the Will better then the Sam.

Both Burnett and Roach can be 3down backers for us regardless.

I really think you should make the call on the projected 53. Nice job Jamethus92 and SDRF!
