Some thoughts:
  • Not a lot of surprises here. The exception is Clayton at one of the starting defensive tackle spots over Blanc. He's apparently been healthy all August and Gene Chizik said he's had one of the best pre-fall camps of anybody on the roster.
  • Weird group at HB. That's because the position is so versatile and different players are in different spots on the field.
  • Carr and Wisner as the backup wide receivers is a mild surprise. Benton as a third-stringer isn't, considering his injury situation.
  • Burgess is the backup center, but Berry can still slide over in a pinch.
  • Initially listed as an "OR" situation, Chizik said Shoemaker is the starter.
  • Some young defensive linemen should get on the field. Lemonier, Whitaker and Sanders are all on the two-deep.
  • Etheridge and Savage won the starting safety jobs, although McNeil and Means should play.
  • No real decisions at punt returner, where there is a three "OR" situation.
  • There are 12 true freshman on the two-deep. Eight are on defense.

I'm a little surprised because I've read so much about Philip Pierre-Louis and so little about Jay Wisner and Derek Winter. I realize there are more WRs than I can keep up with now, but I was hoping to see PPL this year. Is he still injured?

Andy Bitter said...

I think PPL is not quite all the way back from his ACL injury. Him and Stallworth, both of whom are working on the scout team this first week.

MikeP said...

My two surprises: No Goodson at WR, I'd expected him to make the two-deep.

No Kenneth Carter at DT. I thought he was right there with Whitaker, though there are few listed at DT and Carter could easily see playing time.

I cannot believe we are not using Ladarius Phillips-He’s 285 pounds but can stand flat-footed and do a backflip. Redzone wishbone or triple eye and run over opponent when they least expect it....

I'd agree on Carter. I think Goodwin is a little bit banged up and that's why he's not up there quite yet.
