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.
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.
