    the only one i question is no UG3.

    killebrew could play the role of LB/SS that marcus allen is playing and UG3 makes it at LB. :cool:

    I think he’s short an OL as well. Pretty sure we usually carry 9.

    What is the distinction between WR1 and WR2? Surely you're not projecting Ray-Ray as a starter over DJ.

    We may keep all 4 QB'S...If Haskins shows well at all he has future trade value at least.. With Bens age and previous injury list he may go down early ao keeping all the options is probably the best thing to do..

    Overall good list, but I don't see them keeping just 3 OLBs, also no Joe Haeg on the OL.

    Yes, 3 OLBs is a tough way to go. But they've done it before and they don't seem to play a lot of STs, not as much as the ILBs anyway it seems.

    As to Haeg, it was a toss up between him and Coward for me. I guess Haeg would provide more T prospects. Out of the 9 I have listed, I would consider 6 interior prospects.

    Drop a WR and add and OLB, currently not on the roster. Roche and a cheap vet better than Marsh at setting the edge.

    Titans have Ola Adeniyi AND Tuzar Skipper, maybe one is cut and brought back since they seem to like the old familiars.

    I'm interested to see how WR Anthony Johnson does this preseason. He might be a tough cut, but 6 WRs is high.

    Remember the 53 is now expanded to 55, adding 2 PS players 4 pm before game day, and the 46 is expanded to 47 (48 if you have 8 O linemen). The options for the 53 can be countered a bit. However yu get to cute and you start losing guys as well.

    I think it's too risky to go with only 3 OLBs when Highsmith is just in his second year, and the only backup being a rookie, they can keep 5 WRs and stash 1 or 2 on the practice squad.

    i noted the six WRs too, and thought five is better and take that spot to a more needed position, like OLB,

    agree, but Rader might take the third TE, and I think Gilbert and maybe Denmark can shake up the DB's

    Dobbs vs. Haskins will be the most interesting. Harvin will likely beat out Berry, unless Harvin struggles getting the punts away in time to beat the rush.

    Harvin better know how to hold for kickers as well if that is in the job description. Most interesting for me is between players trying to be starters, not clipboard holders at home games. JMO>

    Haskins is interesting because they didn’t bring him here to be a clipboard holder, they brought him here to be a starter.

    We know Ben won't play a lot of preseason, so I hope they switch Haskins, and Mason back and forth from game 2 game 2 run with the 1st that are playing.

    I'd like to see Ben challenged. Even if Tomlin goes with his franchise qb i think Ben would respond well to the threat.

    I am hoping to see competition at the CB and Safety position and OLB and ILB positions
    and of course OL.

    How does this get a disagree and hilarious? :goofy:

    They picked him up to be a starter, that’s not the same as saying he will be the starter.

    There is no threat. Ben starts in Buffalo period. I'd like to see him compete as well but that won't be happening since MC has given BB the green light on what he wants to do within MC offense. I wish what you'd like to see could happen. I think you're right how he'd respond.
