I admit, I'm confused about a number of players on defense, and where they could potentially play next year, and I think even the coaches arent sure at this point, but I'd like to hear some opinons.
Mike Martin: Stay at Nose tackle, or does the emergence of Washington or Ash allow him to play DT?
Van Bergen: Does he start at strong-side DE, or is he forced to play DT?
Craig Roh: Will he be a full time starter at DE, or will he still be slightly out of position as a LB trying to tackle in space?
JB Fitzgerald: Assuming we run more traditional 4 man fronts next year, does he play MLB? WLB?
Herron: Same as Fitzgerald. Can he play WLB or MLB?
Marvin Robinson: Does he battle Mike Jones for the WLB job? Can he bulk up enough to be effective in the Big Ten at this position?
Josh Furman: I've always seen him as a LB, does he get in the mix at WLB or compete at an already crowded Spur postion?
Jake Ryan: Is he a MLB or WLB?
Carvin Johnson: Does he have the speed to play FS or is he better suited to battle Kovacs at the box safety?
Cam Gordon: Is it a lock that he plays at Spur next year?
I really feel there will be more talent, depth, and experience next year, but there are still a ton of question marks. Obviously a lot of this will be answered down the stretch and in the spring, but I'm curious to hear some opinions.
