The dust has settled and now we have had a chance to get to know a little about the newbies on the team, so I thought we should discuss what people think these rookies can do for the team. I will start. Brandon Meriweather: While I don't think Meriweather will be a "starter" I think he will be on the field alot. I think he can play some slot corner and safety. depending on what wilson shows this year, he could take over for him as well. Kareem Brown: I think Brown brings versatility to the D-line. Brown will fight it out with LeKevin Smith and even Mike Wright and win. Brown needs to put on a little weight on to be Wilforks backup, but he is well built to help out Seymour and Warren as well. Clint Oldenburg: Clint is a lot like O'Callahan to me just a little more raw. Will play right tackle and depending on O'callahans health and Kaczur's development, Oldenburg could have a shot but most likely a PS or inactive type guy. Justin Rogers: Rogers is an interesting player, while I don't see him on the active roster this year, he looks to have the qualities to be a good project at linebacker. I did read that he did very well in the workout drills and he is extremely smart, so maybe with some time under Bruschi he could be the heir apparent. I am more excited about him after doing some research. Mike Richardson: Obviously with Belichicks conection to Weis, there must have been some positive feedback on him. He tested out really well in drills and seems to be a workout warrior. IIRC I believe he had the fastest 3 cone and shuttle of everyone. He did play a lot in college as well, so we will see if he has what it takes to make this team, I think he is more of a PS guy for now. Justice Hairston: I love this kid! He is big and fast! Not ellusive, but ultra productive. Seems to have some decent hands as well. I honestly think by the end of this year, sammy morris will be a non factor and Hairston will be a younger version of Dillon. Corey Hilliard: Hilliard seems to be a project pick with potential. He will be in Scarneccia's school of young lineman and a practice squad guy. Oscar Lua: Here is the 2 down linebacker we needed. I think if Lua can stay healthy, he could honestly play some this year. Smart, Aggressive, does whatever he has to to win. Lua does not have ideal size but plays beyond his talent, a real scrapper that has a real chance. Mike Elgin: See Hilliard. Has versatility, would have rather taken Scott Stephenson with this pick, but we will see if he can hang on, PS maybe, but most likely gone. UDFA I like guettirez (sp?) as a developing 3rd qb. He has the same qualities as Brady and Cassell and should fit in well into this system. Hopefully he can develop like Cassell has. I also like Warren as another developmental LB. He has nice size and good speed, we shall see if he can develop skills to play.
