    Kind of a review of how our rookies might do this season. What do you think?

    His pic looks like the High School Annual ...... most likely to get turned down for a Junior Prom date ...

    I think Tribble will be THE person cut from this class

    I think Cason will be a great addition even though we have plenty of talent already on the D.

    Gotta agree. Clark will make the practice squad, but Tribble will be sent packing.

    "Most likely to struggle: Antoine Cason

    Cason will endure some struggles as a rookie, but not for a lack of talent. As the third cornerback between Antonio Cromartie and Quentin Jammer, Cason will trot into the nickel defense with a bull’s-eye on his back"

    ... It stands to reason, that anyone playing the nik this year will wear the target... but I'm not sure Cason is the de facto guy... we'll see if Flash can continue his progress when the pads go on.... it would be nice to get that speed on the field...

    the coaches could decide to go with a 3-yr guy on the rise, rather than press a struggling rook into service... they've been known to let a #1 pick sit...

    can't wait for training camp... one of the more interesting competitions to watch... that and ILB.....:yes: ... the "most scrutiny" award will go to ROT.... :lol:

    Cason will have Cletis Gordon to push him, and if Cason's not ready, he won't be thrown to the wolves. I think he'll be pretty well protected, from the standpoint of being used in ways that maximize his chances of having success.

    Tribble's the one who'll go. Reminds me of Tay Cody.

    ...This makes sense. The nickel is so crucial that the Bolts might try and go with a little more experience as Cason eases into the program and the pro level in general.

    I'll withold guessing on who will be sent packing because as you all know, anything can happen at any time. Let's wait to see when camp opens and who will bring their A game.

    Yeah, got to agree. There are a LOT of Tribbles to choose from. Ask Captain Kirk!

    A bunch will comment, and few will know what the hell they are looking at.

    That's not a bad thing. Let him come along slow if that's what he needs. Better than giving up a cheap TD.
