    Review the depth chart post draft

    So here's the depth chart where it stands. Who will get cut? What holes can we still fill at june 1st cuts?

    Tarvaris Jackson
    Brooks Bollinger
    Drew Henson
    Tyler Thigpen

    Running Back:
    Chester Taylor
    Adrian Peterson
    Mewelde Moore
    Artose Pinner
    Ciatrick Fason

    Fullback:
    Tony Richardson
    Jeff Dugan

    Tight End:
    Jim Kleinsasser
    Visanthe Shiancoe
    Richard Owens?

    Wide Receiver:
    Troy Williamson
    Bobby Wade
    Sidney Rice
    Aundrae Allison
    Billy McMullen

    Martin Nance
    Jason Carter
    Chandler Williams
    Todd Lowber

    Guard:
    Steve Hutchinson
    Artis Hicks

    Tackle:
    Bryant McKinnie
    Marcus Johnson

    Center:
    Matt Birk
    Ryan Cook


    Defense:


    Defensive End:
    Darrion Scott
    Erasmus James
    Kenechi Udeze
    Ray Edwards
    Jayme Mitchell
    Brian Robison

    Defensive Tackle:
    Kevin Williams
    Pat Williams

    Outside Linebacker:
    Ben Leber
    Chad Greenway
    Heath Farwell
    Rod Davis
    Vinny Ciurciu
    Rufus Alexander

    Middle linebacker:
    EJ Henderson
    Dontarrious Thomas

    Cornerback:
    Antoine Winfield
    Cedric Griffin
    Marcus McCauley
    Devonte Edwards
    Ronyell Whitaker

    Safety:
    Darren Sharper
    Dwight Smith
    Mike Doss
    Greg Blue
    Tank Williams

    Kicker:
    Ryan Longwell

    Punter:

    I see us adding more Offensive line talent to bring to training camp as depth. We have a TON of receivers to choose from in training camp. This will be one of the most interesting TC battles in a while.. No one's job is safe.

    Re: Review the depth chart post draft

    I just realized how much I absolutely LOVE McCauley........

    BYE BYE WHITAKER!!!!!!!

    Dwight was a Tomlin guy as well so I dunno how they will go about keeping 5 safety's.
    I really hope the keep Greg Blue but Doss, Tank, and Greg are all similar in style.

    Re: Review the depth chart post draft

    With Edwards returning and McCauley we're set at corner.

    We're STACKED at safety.

    MLB is a concern, we'll see how EJ does in the middle.

    RT is a concern as well, we need to move Marcus Johnson back to guard, and acquire a tackle.

    RB is absolutely set.

    WR still has some question marks, but is a potentially good group.


    We're looking pretty sold as a team right now.... we'll see if the KAO will work with the new personnel.

    That's pretty damn good IMO. We are completely set on defense and are actually looking stronger than last year post draft. I'm a lot more confident about our ends and linebackers with the late draft additions. The Wide Receivers are looking a lot better but I want us to add one more veteran free agent like Eric Moulds. Should be the most interesting TC battle with that many guys on the roster. I love our secondary right now with the addition of McCauley. We're looking prett strong with that starting lineup. Man, I'm pumped for next season.

    Nope, cuz im also excited now that we did awesome in the draft. I was getting worried because of the teams we have to play but I feelings abit better. Even though it will still be tough we shouldn't worry too much if we dont make the superbowl or playoff cuz we still got lots to do

    McCauley can be special player if he works hard. they wont cut greg blue, they saw enough talent out of him to let him start openning season, so he will be with the team unless he just does not impress anyone in TC.

    You saying that Jason Carter STILL won't be able to be out our 7th rounder?
    If that's the case, then he will never make the roster!
    Also, Richard Owens should be the backup FB and Smith rather than Doss might be the convert to CB...but other than that...pretty good list!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Re: Review the depth chart post draft

    Nice man. Here are the postitions i would change.

    Offense:

    Tight End:
    Visanthe Shiancoe

    Jim Kleinsasser






    Jim just isn't number 1 TE can't catch the ball or stretch

    the feild like V.shi

    Wide Receiver:
    Sidney Rice - usually rookies wouldn't start but in this case i say throw him to the dogs. What else can we do?
    Bobby Wade
    Aundrae Allison - in dream world develops to #2 and wade moves to the slot where we want him.
    Billy McMullen
    Troy Williamson (only # 5 if he has a good training camp and preseason)
    Bonus: Todd "i shocked the world baby!" Lowber as KR or PR



    Guard:
    Steve Hutchinson
    Marcus Johnson

    Tackle:
    Bryant McKinnie
    Ryan Cook ------im on the moving Johnson inside and playing ryan cook at tackle boat.




    Defense:


    Defensive End:
    Kenechi Udeze
    --Udeze doesnt lose his starting spot yet
    Erasmus James
    Ray Edwards-- will continue to grow into a good pass rusher and move on up
    Darrion Scott
    Brian Robison-- Out of my ass prediction, he moves up maybe even passed Darrion.
    Jayme Mitchell



    Weakside Linebacker:
    Chad Greenway
    Rufus Alexander-- Rufus is the perfect WLB for the tampa 2, see Cato June, small-ish and fast.

    Strongside Linebacker
    Ben Leber
    Heath Farwell
    Vinny Ciurciu


    Middle linebacker:
    EJ Henderson
    Dontarrious Thomas

    Cornerback:
    Antoine Winfield
    Cedric Griffin
    Marcus McCauley
    Dwight Smith -- converts to CB
    Devonte Edwards


    Safety:
    Darren Sharper
    Mike Doss
    Tank Williams
    Greg Blue-- Blue is still pretty raw and we have too many proven safetys. Although he will seriously injure someone on ST this season. Devon Hester?
