    So what are going to be our positional battles in training camp? My guesses.

    SLB: Nick Roach vs Hunter Hillenmeyer. Not sure about this one. I think Hunter will win it back.
    Hillenmeyer will likely be given every shot to win it (With Roach and Freeman vying for the spot). If he doesn't impress, good chance he'll be cut.

    Why is this even listed? Brown's job is as close to the safest on the whole team, especially considering he was our best starter on the DLine last year.

    If anything, this is where Anderson would compete, but that won't be the case either. The only time Gilbert might possibly play DE in our scheme is in a goalline situation, but I doubt that. And Melton will not be expected to contribute anytime soon. Idonije will probably be the main backup for Ogunleye.

    I think DD is all but gone right now. Odds are we'll see a lot of Adams on 1st and 2nd down, and Harrison on 3rd and mid-long. With Gilbert to backup and give Harris breaks, Harrison can focus on NT.

    #2 CB: Nathan Vasher vs Corey Graham. I think Vasher will win this if they are considering Graham at FS.
    Considering he's our 2nd or 3rd best corner right now, I doubt we see a move of Graham to FS. Vasher will likely be given every shot to start, but if he sucks again, we're gonna want Graham to be prepared and not have to switch back and forth from 2 different positions.

    I think it's mainly just Steltz and Bullocks here, and I think Bullocks will win this one easy. Bullocks, in a zone scheme again, could thrive.

    #3 WR: Earl Bennett vs Juaquin Iglesias vs Rashied Davis vs Johnny Knox. I think Rashied Davis will be our #3 but Iglesias could beat him out sooner then later.
    I think we'll see Iglesias as the starter with Bennett in the slot. However, we could see a lot of Olsen split out as the 2nd receiver with Bennett at slot. Iglesias just makes more sense as the no. 2 as he makes a better compliment to Hester and profiles more as a Marty/Moose type. Davis will likely be the 4 or 5, and while I really like Knox, he's probably gonna need at least 2 years to develop. However, I could see Knox having a great preseason and will push for a job.

    However, I think Olsen will be listed as a TE, but in all reality, he'll be the 2nd WR. Right now, I can't think of a better option. Have him as the no. 2 with Clark at TE.

    • Olsen wont be playing WR. He will occasionally split out wide though. I think Bennett will be our #2 move to slot for Davis/Iglesias.

      • I think Bennett can start at #2 and Iglesias can start off in the slot. With Iglesias' skill set right now, I think he will do well in the slot. He can find holes in the defense and he runs well after the catch. I think down the road, Knox can surprise people. Both Iglesias and Knox need to improve their strength in order to be effective receivers.
        For defensive end, the starters should remain the same. It wouldn't surprise me if Anderson ends up getting cut or traded during the preseason.
        I think Bullocks has the athletic ability to be a good safety, but I'm not expecting any miracles out of him. If Vasher can't cut it, at least Graham showed that he can be a good starter. Moore could also make some plays next year.

            • If we don't make the playoffs this year, my dream scenario would be Shanny as their new HC and he brings in Marshall.

                So we.....recreate the recent Bronco's teams that couldn't play defense and broke down late in the season?

                Also, iirc, Marshall is one more slip on a McDonald's bag away from a year long suspension. He'll get more money somewhere else that I'd give him here with his character concerns.

                  You got Shanny with complete control over the O, and you have JA with complete control over player personal on the D. You hire some badass DC to have complete control over the D play calling wise.

                  I'm telling ya, we could make it work!

                  • I have a feeling that if we tank to the point of firings, Lovie and JA are going to both go.

                    And I doubt Shanny goes to any team that doesn't give him full control. A two time superbowl champ like him is going to have suitors lining up for miles depending on some teams fair next year. (Washington? Dallas?)

                            <.00000000000000000000001% chance of that ever happening. HC or bust for him.
