Great points...my take:
1 - personally I am not sold on Knox or Doughty as MLB...Moth should be in camp to compete for a spot though for sure. If one of em sticks...great...both are capable of at minimum being depth IMO. Brown will be one of the LB, so if Brack sticks that is 2. I said it before...I think at Brack's salary and age he is in tough to make the squad when rebuilding. I see Knox going outside and Doughty competing with new blood in the middle.
2 - Brown to DB...maybe...he has played mostly SAM and done it well...the reason I question if Brack has a future....I don't see him displacing Brown. Brown is ideal at this spot. Perhaps they push Brack to WIL, but not if they want to get younger and cheaper at the position...and they have a few potentials on the roster for that right now.
TJ has been hands down the best DB on the team...he should be back. He has suffered at times because of some of the guys he has been playing around. I hope they get the skillset to go back to Man and if they do...TJ is a guy they want for another season or 2. Hollins can likely go in there. Mertile...I know people will hate this...he would be in my camp. He has been a crap tackler but a well above average coverage guy in Man. The entire team's tackling has been crap all year though...so I have a hard time hanging him out for that...a huge part of the tackling is coaching...there is no way proven player have all coincidentally regressed. Get a better set of defensive coaches and bring a tackling guru into camp...not saying he make the team, but I bring him in to compete. Green and Harris...gone
3 - perhaps he is not picking up the plays...perhaps he is still a really bad blocker...some guys take a few seasons...he is doing well in his role...more will be expected next season.
4 - Yup...it is one spot that they had superb depth at camp...some of the guys cut were more than capable of making the roster...impressive. That evaluation along with how well the group has done is a big reason I say try to keep Jeremaine Copeland on...he has been great.
5 - I've said before I like Smith....love his energy and mobility...I also wasn't sold on him. I think Price could be for real. First snap he was looking beyond the rush...something Smith never has done. I am hoping Price gets the start this week...he deserves it. Either way...great depth going into camp IMO.
6 - Yeah...they suffered with the Rooks in. The second half of the season they have been pretty solid...all of them. Imaging if they had a secondary so that the QB did not always have a wide open dump pass or guys who could takle so that they couldn't hit 3 yarders to see who misses.
7 - I liked the ne guy...till he went down so early...he has potential. Allen whiffs a lot of blocks...need more competition at camp for 16.
8 - I will add OL...way way way more from them than I expected this season. Watman needs to stay at C. Nice to not see rainbows every snap.
