    Re: which rookie

    I can't see Jaymar Johnson "putting a sour taste in our mouth", because very few people here actually expect big things out of him.
    TWill was a 1st round pick, with HUGE expectations as being the guy who will replace moss.
    Johnson is the opposite, came here with very few expectations, not expected to even make the team, but he's shown off he has some physical tools that may be usefull.
    I don't think he will get very much playing time at all, and he will be this years Jason Carter.

    Tyrell Johnson, also will likely see limited playing time, but I am looking forward to seeing what he can do when he does get the chance.

    Taking the words out of my mouth.
    I've read good things about him but with the receiving core we have i'm very pleased.
    Rosie O'Donnell is a dude!

    Re: which rookie

    It's pretty obvious that the once we'll probably see on the field more will be Tyrell and Jaymar (if he makes the team). So those will be the once to watch.

    However it'll be interesting to follow the development of the linemen also. I'm not good at evaluating DLinemen, but I'll try to keep track of Guion and see if he is the eventual replacement for Big Pat.
    Also I'll be looking for knee bends and handplacement for Sullivan whenever he hits the field. O-Linemen always develops more slowly, but there will be something to look for.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    agreed. in the pre-season tho I'll be looking forward to seeing what JDB can do the most.

    Re: which rookie

    I would like to see, believe it or not, Center John Sullivan make the team and spend some quality preseason time at center.
    I feel he may be the man at center with Birk probably spending his last year with the team.
    He maybe the most important replacement in 2009.........

    Re: which rookie

    Strangley enough, I don't expect to see much of our rookies at all this year other than in spot duties/limited rotations.

    WR.
    Unless JJ really wows the coaches, I don't even see him making the 53 man roster.
    And then if he does, he will be inactive alot, just like we saw with AA last year.

    DL.
    Guion is very interesting, but I don't see him getting a roster spot either.
    Probably gonna get ratholed onto the practice squad as well.
    Just not experienced enough to warrant keeping him on the 53 man roster.
    Need to keep a guy there who can be relied on to give Phat Pat some reps off.

    QB.
    JDB could get some time on the field if TJ and Gus go down, but I don't see that happening, even though it did last year.
    OL will play better and that will equate to TJ staying healthier this year.

    OL.
    I would still like to see Hicks let go and both Mozes and Sullivan make it along with the two Johnson boys at T but I assume that won't happen.
    My guess is Mozes will get the nod here based on his time in the system over Sullivan.

    S.
    S-TJ will see more reps than anyone would be my guess.
    S have a huge role in this scheme and we seem to wear them out.
    S-TJ makes the 53 man roster and gets lots of reps with 2 INT's based on the QB's making some bad throws because of the pressure from our DL.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
