I'm wondering everyone's opinion about the various position battles on the team. I don't know that I can remember a time in recent memory where there were so many battles. I don't know if this is a good thing bc of depth....or that we just don't have premier, unquestioned talent at many positions. I suppose it's a little bit of both.
Lets start with the hot topic of the summer: offensive line.
obviously, Jeff will be at C. And it looks like Castonzo at LT.
what about LG, RG, and RT?
I'm thinking its gonna be either Ijalana or Diem at RT
then Either Ijalana or Devan at RG
and finally Charlie at LG
I realize I don't have Linkenbach or Pollack on this list...i just don't see either starting. But...to each his own.
Next we have the Linebackers.
I'm gonna go ahead and lock Bracket in @ MLB
But on the outside, it could pretty much be any combo of Sessions, Angerer(my selections), Conner, or Wheeler. Hagler?
Moving on to the Secondary.
At saftey we have Bethea locked in and I believe Bullitt. Some believe he won't be back, but I do. Who else do we even have? Francisco?? Silva??
At Corner, we have some very unusual depth due to multiple injuries. I believe it will be Powers and Hayden with Tryon bringing in the nickle duties. I don't know that polian will let tryon take haydens spot due to that massive contract he gave him. Also remember two years ago when jacob lacey came in as a nobody and played phenomenal? I like our depth at corner.
And finally, Defensive Tackle.
The biggest problem with this one is that we don't know who is going to be there.
Moala, Johnson, Muir, Nevis, Foster, Anyone else? Matthews? I'm thinking with the lockout we will start out Moala and Muir because Nevis is going to be on a curve. He may eventually replace Muir....but who knows. Johnson may step up as well. Time will tell.
Well that's what I think. Like I said, at this point, I can't think of a time, at least in the last 5 years, where we have had so many questions as to who is going to start. Let me know what you think. Call me out if I left someone out of importance or said something that doesn't make sense.
