  • The two guys i'm pulling for is Ron Harper for backup FS, and DeShawn Shead for backup SS. Both have rare blends of size, speed, strength and/or athleticism and I'm hoping that they can compete, and earn spots over more incumbent back-ups.

    Also, I'm pulling for Will Blackmon over Simon and Maxwell for 6th CB. The guy has crazy athleticism. At least he did before injuries, I don't know what he's like now but he's a good player to have if Harvin and Tate get injured or banged up and can't handle return duties.

    Also, I liked Simon a lot at first when we drafted him, but it wouldn't surprise me if he gets the p-squad treatment or ends up on I.R.
    #11 is the Gatling Gun, coming at Ds in multiple, unpredictable ways spreading the field horizontally.

    #10 is the Sniper Rifle, if you don't respect his deep field speed opposing DBs will end up in a pink mist.

    #24 is the Boomstick, get in his way when you're the lone defender, I dare you.

    Really?, How much? he is listed at 226 Lbs. on the Hawks.com site... even if he puts on 10 more pounds that would make a big difference...

    Didn't say how much, but they mentioned it when also first noting that he was taking reps at Leo. Either way he didn't have a problem at the POA last year for the most part. He wasn't assignment correct at all times, but he has speed to spare so any added weight is a bonus.



    True, I like his upside.

  • I happily think there won't be many suprises due to the depth we have established. I do think Lot makes the roster but I think the rest will have to work there way through the PS.

    I will always root for the rookies over vets, simply because you'll have those rookies longer and they have a chance to grow alot more than an established vet. Therefore I'm completely opposite of you on this issue. I want Simon and Lane to beat out Blackmon and Maxwell and these later two have been in the league several years and more finished products than the the 2 young guys. Hence why I'd love to see several of the rookie OLmen make the team over some of the vets.

  • I'm intrigued by:

    LB-John Lotulelei: also think he will take over Heath Farwell's spot

    SS-Ray Polk: I think both Maragos and Guy are unremarkable and Jeron Johnson is an RFA after this season? We need some safety depth and Polk seems to have all the tools.

    WR-Stephen Williams: If he can put it together on the field, he has the measureables to be a huge asset for us.

    OLB/LEO-Ty Powell: Interested in learning how we are utilizing Ty Powell. I see him as an eventual replacement for KJ Wright and like his pass rushing ability.
