I am finally seeing alot of positives from Mack and the moves he is making are very good for the Bombers going into the 2010 season, i would like to evaluate our talent as it stands right now, lets not forget that there is 3 months until training camp, free agent camps have not started and the NFL and college teams may have hidden talent, let me know what you think.
QUARTERBACKS - Stephen LeFors can succeed under the right system but will have to earn the starting job, Steven Jyles is very athletic and has speed, his accuracy has not been bad when he has played and agin under the right system he could be a solid starter. Ricky Santos and Adam Dimichele are both young, very talented and are very quick to scramble, these are 2 of the most promising QBS in the league. I think we will be just fine in the QB department.
RUNNING BACKS - Fred Reid has established himself as a starter in the CFL but will be pushed by Yvenson Bernard, who is better out in the flat and has better hands than Reid and these 2 will be pushed by Emmanual Marc who is very strong on his feet and very fast, he may just be used as a returner if he sticks around. Another name to look out for is Rafael Little, this kid is young and super fast he will push for a job at training camp, again may be kept as a ST player or returner, and Stepenson will be a ST player as well and very well could be used as a blocker or FB when called upon. I believe we are the most solid team in the league when it comes to running backs.
Offensive Line - People had alot of question marks about the oline and i believe that we will be just fine, we have a solid group of player's returning and this group allowed the least amount of sacks during the last half of 2009. Donnelly, Labatte, Khan, Fritz, Morley, January will be solid once again.
Reciever's - 2 big Canadian bodies like Arthur and Hargreaves adds the strength and height we been so lacking, If Edwards returns to form is a solid 1000 yard reciever, let's hope he can stay healthy, Bowman is young,big and fast and we seen what he could do last season. If Titus Ryan returns he will add amazing speed and solid hands. Brock Ralph is a dependable Canadian and will pull in a few TDS while we have two young guys in Vincent Marshall who is small in stature but is very fast, he may be one of our greatest finds. Luciani is another non import, but will be hard pressed to make the team with canadians Arthur, Hargreaves and Ralph. MY PICK is D.J Hall, i studied this kids stats from college, seen highlights of his play and he WILL be a great reciever and will surprise many, he is still very young and has good size and great hands and speed as well, he is MY PICK for surprise player of the year. Check out D.J Halls youtube vid below, you will see what i mean.
