    We WILL draft a kicker next year. Watch. There were no worthy kickers coming out this year. Next year there will be. Remember the name Matt Bosher.

    If you really do "trust in AJ", you'll trust in Nate too because AJ does. AJ even said that Nate is staying. :lol:

    They ususally have 4 in training camp. I wonder if they are planning to use the heck out of Crompton in TC? We could see his arm fall off. :yes:

    Someone tell me one of these O linemen is the next Dielman (even if he was a DT on arrival). Is there any potential sleeper in this list?.

    Yeah I know but they still need a 4th QB for the dog days of camp. 3 QB's is not enough.

    That sets up the massive showdown for the 3rd QB spot. :popcorn:

    great idea, since the signing of Brandon"the Feared" Lang why dont we look to trade shaun phillips to the patriots" its a stretch but he might fit their scheme" along with buster davis, and a 3rd from next year for their number 8th pick, and Vollmer Sebastian, stretch of a deal but id like it done

    Crompton was a good pick.

    With our coaching staff we can make almost any QB pro level.

    I've heard good things about RB Shawnbrey McNeal. 5'9 190, 4.53 40.




    Definitly a Sproles clone.

    Unless Sproles is traded, I don't see why we would carry 2 guys who do the same thing.

    Marcus Mason is the same type of player too. If I had to guess I'd say McNeal beats out Mason for the #3 job, or at the very least makes the practice squad.

    On the topic of RB's, I really think we need 1 more big RB. I still think we should have drafted Blount in the 7th, just for a goalline threat if nothing else.

    Have you forgotten about Tolbert? When he carried the ball he averaged 6 yards each time.

    :lol: Ryan can just leap over the defenders

    Tolbert needs to be our full-time FB! I'd rather see him leading the way for guys like Mathews instead of taking the ball out of their hands.

    I'm tired of the Hester experiment. He's so much of a "tweener" that he really has no niche on this team except maybe special teams.

    We also picked up a FB named Cory Jackson who was considered the 2nd best fullback prospect by some. If he gets playing time, he could be the FB when Tolbert runs. Anyway, AJ had a plan and I don't think it involved Lagarette Blount.

    We have Hester who has never gotten a shot to show why he was drafted, and still have Tolbert.

    Neither guy is a 20 carry guy, but both may be able to have success 4-5 carries a game.

    But just like last year, our RB's are only going to do as good as the line in front of them. With the injuries, rookie year, and just a poor over all game plan, out line was horrible last year at run blocking.

    Everyone is healthy now, Vasques has a full year under his belt, and AJ got rid of the RB he didn't want, so they have no excuse to not have success this year. Anything less than a top 15 team rushing performance is unacceptable

    Ajirotutu and Brockel have a chance to make the team. He will be competition at the FB spot, despite being drafted as a TE, and Aji played alongside Matthews. Brockel also has a chance to be the blocking TE and could be a demon on ST-he is supposed to be rather ill tempered. We have two WR spots open, Kassim is gone and Buster will be, too, unless he really shows something. Cromartie leaves a spot for a new DB and Dobbins leaves a spot for our new LB. Our line will most like gel this year, especially if they are blocking for a runner like Matthews. AJ has gotten us players that fill some serious needs. Thomas is just icing on the cake. If I remember right, Richmond goes about 330 and has decent feet.
