    I'm thinking Gaffney will be WR2 day1 though I hope Jackson can beat him out.

    Law is not getting signed now that we have around 7 CBs on the roster. I'm thinking Bryant starts this year with Wheatley or Webster getting some reps at #3

    Hobson will start over Mayo day1. Mayo is perfect fit as a 3rd down back. Let Hobson play ILB for 2 downs and bring Mayo in on 3rd down. It would be a great way to transition him to a starting role next year.

    I don't see Meriweather starting over Sanders.

    I agree with most of what you've said, except I DO see Meriweather starting over Sanders.

    I would consider only starting 11 on offense and 11 on defense. Otherwise we will get a 5 yard penalty for 12 men on the field when all 12 defensive starters trot out.

    Interesting point for someone familiar with the rules: The OP has 13 starters on offense. Is that still a five-yard penalty? Or would it be ten yards, five for each extra man?

    I agree with Whiza. Forget about Law. This team is getting 'younger and faster'. He was a great corner.

    Mayo doesn't start day one, but does get significant playing time.

    Meriweather won't start over Sanders, because Sanders is going to be starting at SS, and BM at FS. Harrison will still get a lot of PT, but he is really slowing down, and the young guys bring so much more speed and athletecism.

    I feel like we are a little thin at RB. Maroney was hurt a little last year and I didn't love our options behind him. It would be nice to have a little more youth and speed behind Maroney. Everyone else is either a FB/RB combo type player or is over 30 years old.

    I would like to see a leaping contest for a fade pass between the two of them.

    I agree with everyone but the last one. No way Sanders starts. You have to be able to cover and tackle.

    You kidding? Morris was a revelation last year. Talk about coming through for the team when they needed it. The combo of him and Moroney is solid and entirely understated.

    No way that Chad Jackson deserves billing over Jabar Gaffney. Jackson has yet to prove anything, and Gaffney has proven he can play over and over again, including the big games. Jackson needs to show something more than Combine numbers before we can see the field.
