    For kicks:

    QB: Franks/Jones/Trask

    RB: Perine/Davis/Pierce

    WR: Jefferson/Cleveland

    WR: Hammond/Grimes/Pitts

    WR: Swain/Toney/Cope

    TE: Krull/Gamble/Zip

    OL: I have no clue, but addition by subtraction as I've repeated plenty. These guys will have 2 years in a system and actually have experience in a competent system as opposed to starting for all of Nuss' embarassment.

    Defense (We sometimes saw multiple ends as opposed to two DT's so I'm putting both.

    DE: Zuniga/Greenard

    DT: Shuler/Dunlap

    DT: Campbell/Slaton

    DE: Clayton/Carter (Taking a gamble)

    OLB: Moon/Little Reese (I think Traz is off on Nick Smith...too soon, I know and I'm not sure who else would back up here)

    ILB: Big Reese/Houston

    ILB: Miller/Houston (Yea, I'm cheating)

    CB: Wilson/Hill

    CB: Hendo/Steele

    "Star": Burney/Stewart

    S: Dean/Davis

    S: Stewart/Stiner

    P: Townsend

    K: McPherson

    Well, obviously Nick Smith is part of the crew being invited to have medical issues or given bus tickets, so, yeah, he isnt in the deoth chart.

      Yea, I might have missed on Smith contributing...feel awful for him, bc I really do think he was a player. Hopefully he's getting good advice and not like Jarvis Jones did at usc.

        During the presser today, Mullen suggested Steele and Trey Dean will be at the Star position.

        Also @ltraz keeps saying safety depth is fine this year, but needs more moving forward. Well, CDM agrees with you and just noted as much. He indicated depth there was good now and will be next year, but we need depth to start building in the next class. I don't think he was just covering for misses since he noted how much we need be DL.

            Marco being out is going to tell us more than we'd usually know in the Spring about positions. Whoever plays the most CB after the 1st week out of Steele, Dean & possibly one of the safeties, is the least likely to start at safety and nickel.

              Possible, but nobody knows how each will take to the spots at this time. Even our own coaches dont, which is why we'll see them flipflopping in the Spring. Dean will have a strength issue there so itll all depend on how good he gets at getting off blocks.

              I hope they're taught how to get off blocks. Strength is not a major component of getting off blocks. It is technique and a realization that taking a block straight on is not the best route to your target.

              A big difficulty with our nickel is that they're often the press so it's not a choice how they take on the block.

              If size and strength isnt important to get off blocks, I'm not even sure why we play with LBs!! Just put safeties there! But seriously...of course it's important. You're literally using your strength to throw another human off of you. Exact reason we had a jacked dude likely Chauncey there... and Duke before him...and Poole before him.

                Dan said they are looking at Dean for the star position.

                Steele will fill in for Marco.

                  Actually, we'll be starting a lot of 3*, bc a bunch panned out and english is stupid with our safeties. Probably 4 of our olineman. 3 or 4 of the 4 starting DL. Both starting LBs. Both starting safeties. Good chance 16 of 21 starters and that's not counting Perine (who was on 247) and Toney (I think Swain starts).

                  I thought Burney to Star was all the rage bowl week. I'd really like to see Kimbrough get a crack at KR.

                    A lot of that was bc he was the backup to Chauncey, but that could have been bc he was a freshman. being at nickel is a great spot to learn (practice man and has to work with a safety or CB on every play) and he wouldn't have gtten reps at safety. How someone will do at nickel vs safety vs CB is basically impossible to know. Nobody knew Chauncey would look so good at nickel after struggling at safety, that Poole would be so good there, but never be comfortable outside, etc.

                    Stewart prob has the best measurables and skillset for it. Burney is a freak and would likely be the most help to our run D, which is where we need it. But Dean is a gamer and seems to play with an edge. It'll be a fun competition to watch.

                      All I know is Stewart has to start and play more. Guy can be a game changer

                        Fo sho. Only way he's not starting somewhere in 2019 is if he fuqs up off the field. Big reason why I think he might end up being the nickel is bc it's the hardest spot on the field and he might handle it the best.

                        Plus, it's not immediately apparent. The change in Chauncey over time was dramatic.

                        Im not clear why Davis and Stewart werent at safety all the time when not injured.

                        We just have to hope Gray drops some hints that he's being an idiot. Honestly, best case (outside of him being gone) might be a contributor transferring bc they don't want to be done like that.
