re: DB and WR depth, or lack of it
quote:

9DL would allow 3 Deep


9LB would allow 3 Deep


15DB/Safety would be 3 deep..



9 DL would not be enough if we needed four down linemen, if someone goes run-heavy on us by surprise that day

We don't have 9 linebackers worth it to travel anyway, only 8 and that includes the true freshman kid from Shiloh

you don't need 3 deep in the secondary if you've got several guys who can play more than one position - plus you don't want someone like Malik Chavis on the sideline watching an unproven FR-RS out on the field at corner

Did chavis play more safety or corner last season?

all safety


but Pittboss said in spring that Malik is "the most versatile player in our secondary and he can play safety, corner, and nickel" (paraphrasing what Pittboss said)


actually anyone who can play safety can also play nickel, and most guys who can play corner can also play nickel - almost never have to worry about deep coverage at nickel and you're willing to hit people and you can cover the underneath stuff

not to mention based off the picture of Malik jumping to block a field goal, he can probably dunk a basketball with his ear




ETA: injuries will unfortunately be part of the equation, as usual, and someone or three will step up. I think our two true freshmen from west Tennessee are better than our redshirt freshmen and sophomores, or they will be by October

I know spring games don’t mean that much but that small white receiver number 85 made some plays in the spring he might can help a little

The wide receivers just have to be good enough to keep the defenses somewhat honest.

They weren't in the bowl game. Couldn't get any separation.

I'm not worried at all at WR. Bowl game was an outlier because you took the catalyst from the entire season off the field. Let this group develop some chemistry and I actually think they will be better. Haselwood and Landers will be solid. K Jackson might be the surprise guy in the group.
We will be fine.

I’m hearing a lot of good things about Landers, tall and fast and good ball catcher. He may be the big surprise this year.

sam pittman with Greg McElroy

he straight up says "Greg you know I tell it like I see it. the WR room is the most improved position on the team"

this offense may be the best offense we have ever had.

DL is definitely our biggest question mark
