    Can't wait to see the rookies battle it out in the preseason for the final roster spots. It will give us an idea of how we are doing in our draft selections.

    Preseason is a good gauge for how well we have done in the off season.

    I hope Sly gets to go up against SF's first team. I would really like to see how he does against the stout interior of the 49ers.

    I've read little to nothing indicating that Smith has been exceeding any expectations outside of being healthy. I read he beat a 3rd string OT once or twice for a possible sack but nothing outside of that. All the noise at DE in camp has been about Jackson, Beal, and Ayers

    DE is my top need in the 14 draft.

    Depending if Nacho is the real deal.

    That knocks out SS as a need if he is.
    Ya I think DE could be a need as well, never sold on a guy until the real Sundays start. I still think DT could be a need.

    Glad to hear the rookies are doing well. I was very excited about Williams, Ball, and Smith. Smith will be very intriguing to watch this year, he has the pass rushing knack. I liked watching shine against Bama.

    Our DB group this year is deep; some really solid players are going to lose jobs. Hard to really see 6 CBs making the team, so I think Tony Carter is going to be the odd man out. The FO has invested too high of quality draft picks in Bolden and Webster to give up on them already and risk losing them to another team on waivers. And S is another beast. Oh well, this is a good problem to have...
    With DRC possibly missing Week 1, I doubt we carry four corners.

    Most likely all six make it or should anyway.

    IDK man. I could see Tony Carter becoming a #2 CB for many teams in this league. And whichever safety(s) we end up cutting might make a good run for a job as well. Rahim Moore, Mike Adams, David Bruton, Quinton Carter, Duke Ihenacho, Quentin Jammer... I doubt we keep all 6, and there are some teams with serious ?s in the back end of their defenses...
    Tony carter will make the roster, imo. If he is cut...it's slightly possible he starts somewhere but it would have to be a very needy team.

    At safety, Adams might start somewhere but again, I think he makes the team. Carter and Jammer are the only other ones who might be cut and I don't see either of them starting anywhere.

    I don't think the Broncos keep Moreno next year at all unless he really tears it up this season. He is owed a pretty hefty club option if he stays.

    Since they have to pare the players down to 53, some of them will eventually be picked up by other teams and some of them will wind up starters.

    We are. No longer the bottom feeder that we were at the end if the 2008 season. Getting along with sub par players in schemes that were unable to produce more than ONE playoff victory in the past decade.

    We are now deep enough at some positions that our guys will wind up starting for someone else whe. We cut them.
    Yes we wil be able to get some to PS but then other teams can sign them from there.

    We are one of the best teams not a team that consistently drafted in the top 15.
    tell me one player on our roster that will most likely be cut that would start for another team. Kuper is the only one I can think of and he may not even be cut and he is injured.

    Some do. Not realize that we are deep in some spots and for some bottom feeder and they are the most likely to claim some one we cut. Good chance they will not be claiming someone just to have them backup.
