    You forgot CB Justin King. I would guess he will compete against fletcher for nickel and dime duties. If hill falters, possibly take some of the starts.

    Also, I think I read somewhere that barron would stay at LT and Smith would start the season (or at least training camp/preseason) at RT. Not entirely sure about that one but I thought I heard/read it somewhere.

    King is listed at CB and Yes I heard the same thing about Smith might start at RT. But I think its 50/50 right now and LT should be where he eventually will play.

    What about Wade though? He played alright toward the end of the season. I think we don't give our young corners enough time to develop like Hill or Wade or now King... I take it now that we have 5 young corners on the team, we will not sign a veteran to play the nickel. We will stay committed to our young players and get them experience.

    Sorry didnt see him there. Saw all the orange and thought the whole thing was associated with hill. I agree with you that Smith will eventually play LT, we will just have to wait until preseason to see how spags feels.

    thanks.

    only thing i noted was that Laurent Robinson is listed in green as a draftee. Should be blue and in the free agent category.

    Re: Here is a look at our depth chart and what we have done so far.

    I disagree with a couple of things. I think Fells will beat out Klop @ TE. Pisa will back-up Spoon @ WILL. Draft ditto @ MLB if QC wins the SAM spot. Who knows where Vobora & Chamberlain fit into the scheme,if at all.

    And let's not forget Larry Grant who made some outstanding ST plays last year.Either Grant or UDFA Dominic Douglas may be our new Gary Stills. Every team needs bit player specialists like these guys & their immediate impact is usually on STs. We've got the kicker thing covered. Time to recover from the Dante Hall gamble & revive the kick return unit as well as coverage,imo.

    I even like Ian Campbell's chances of making the depth chart as a back-up DE. One thing I'll be watching with a lot of interest is whether Spags thinks Little can be a season-long starter at LDE or whether he'll use him in rotation with Long there, leaving the rest to duke it out at RDE.

    I doubt,considering the character issues, that Wroten makes the team.

    The rookie RB seems more likely to push for Pittman's spot unless Leonard's health has diminished his potential to the point of no return.Sounds like Ogbonnaya is a similar style runner to Pittman but with better hands.

    Robinson- who should be listed as FA not a draft pick,btw- may compete for Burton's spot as WR #2 but I'd say, as a Devaney guy, Burton still has the edge at this early stage.

    Can't argue with Stanley being ahead of Foster right now but I think Derek will lose his spot due to Brooks' KR potential and better size.

    I'd flip the guard starters- I think Bell has the better feet so remains a better option at LG for pass pro & as a pulling guard on run downs. Cogs will seriously be pushed for his spot at RG by Greco or Setterstrom & may be our back-up center only,imo.
    Having Richie play next to Barron-a disastrous combo for me on the right side last year or next to Smith, the rookie, on Bulger's blindside is a baaad idea,imo. If Cogs has any strengths, pass pro and consistency are not among them; why put either LT on an even more isolated island while the hotheaded whale splashes around?

    It sounds like one of Fletcher's strong points is his tackling ability. Couple that with his good size/decent speed & I see a chance to get him some experience as Atogwe's back-up at safety. If this guy was worthy of his draft spot, I say we need to get him on the field ASAP to accelerate his development & I think King deserves the same opportunity but at nickel and possibly to push Hill for the starter spot.

    Re: Here is a look at our depth chart and what we have done so far.

    How does anyone figure we can stop the run better with the same starting DT? WE should of drafted 3 DL and then seen who was best. Too many of the same starters for my taste! CB's can do a better job when DL can actually get consistant presure. It almost looks like to me thaT management is building for long term without this year in mind!

    We got him with draft picks thats why I considered him as part of the draft. He would not be a free agent because he was traded. I did not have a traded coulmn and when considering our draft you have to consider Laurent as part of it because our draft picks brought him to us in trade.

    Honestly beyond the starters I did not layout who played next as I did not think anyone would try to pick apart all the backups. I do think Ian Campbell and some of the undrafted might make the team but I did not include them on the depth chart as it would get really messy. IMO SLB, NT, CB, and WR will be the most interesting battles. The guys that I have listed as starters may not be there at those positions. I really think Laurent has a lot of talent and has started at this level before. I would think going into trianing camp he would have the edge but anything could happen after that.

    I don't care how you phrase it, but he was "acquired", not drafted.

    Re: Here is a look at our depth chart and what we have done so far.

    Even though Lauriniatis is a great prospect i dont think he will get the Starting job from day 1. I also dont think there will be a real competition. Chris Draft (whether we like it or not) will start from week one. But Lauriniatis will have playing time at SLB and MLB. Also Pisa should not only be depth behind SLB but behind Spoon as well.

    Some other things you may want to re-consider:

    Null is a developmental QB and Berlin has played well in the pre-seasons of years past so do you think Null can really beat out Berlin?

    Where is Dane Looker? He is the only Ram reciever that has been there for over 2 years. I think he will be there and remember Looker became a good target for Bulger down stretch in a few games.

    Barron should not only be the starting RT he should be Smith's back-up at LT.

    Cogs should be the RG with Bell at LG. Why would we flip-flop them if we just kept our OL coach and are trying to build on continuity

    Brad Fletcher was a high draft pick yes. But he is very Similar than Ron Bartell. Fletcher is very raw and i dont think he will be our nickel back. Look for Wade or King to win that position. Fletcher will be our 4 or 5 guy right now.

    WOW not very high on Leonard. Remember he was a 2nd round pick a couple years ago and was injured last year. Leonard will get that #2 spot. CO will be the 3rd.

    You have to consider it as part of our draft when you evaluate our draft not doing so is slighting what we got out of our draft. Why argue over acquired versus draft it really don't matter how I listed it he is on the team.

    Look like I said above if you would read the other post. The backup order may not be where listed. I got lazy and did not feel like putting three days into this post in moving players around and everything else after getting their measurements etc. As for Laurinatis I absoluetly disagree he will be the starter from day 1 IMO. I agree with a lot of this person should be backing up that person, etc. but this was meant more to say who we have for the positions and who I thought the starters would be. I did not scrutinize the back up positions like I normally do. This took up enough of my time. I guess you don't know this but Dane Looker is not on the team and this is what we have done so far if you read the title. I will switch the G positions as that was a mistake Thank you.

    Hopefully, you didn't feel personally attacked. It's exactly this kind of discussion of the "big picture" I've been dying for after weeks of chewing over the draft options ad nauseam. Judging by the responses, I'm not the only one.

    Kudos for a refreshing & fun discussion even if some of the points argued were taken by accident on your part.

    But perhaps you should have avoided calling it a depth chart if you only had the starters in mind. LOL

    I also have high hopes for Robinson but stick to my opinion that it's Burton's spot to lose and still plenty of room at #3 for either one.

    The front seven is a real soup of options for sure. It got a lot heartier & more appetizing over the weekend but who knows how the ingredients will mesh.
