Who will be the nickel corner?

This question is assuming Stephon Gilmore and Leodis McKelvin will be the starters.

I actually think Brooks will start and McKelvin will be our nickle. Leodis played good in that role last year and Ron's physical play is best suited for the outside.

I wouldn't be surprised if that's how it shook out. I think Chris Brown and company are a little quick to pencil in McKelvin as the starter. He's still going to have to compete for that spot.

I'd definitely put Brooks in the top 3, whether hes at nickel or starting next to Gilmore in the #2 role.

Just realized how young our secondary is Shocked

If I recall correctly, Leodis struggled at the nickel spot and looked much better when moved outside later in the season.

Consensus top 3 with everyone mostly is Gilmore, Leodis, and Brooks.


I am a big fan of Robey and Butler. I expect/hope they surprise this camp. Add in Meeks and we have a very young but quite possibly dangerous defensive backfield.
