Here's a tenative look at our depth chart in the back five next season:
SS: Woolfolk, Williams, Emilien, JOHNSON
FS: Kovacs, VanSlyke, Gordon, ROBINSON, JONES
CB: Warren, Floyd, Rogers?, AVERY
CB: Turner, Jones, WITTY, TALBOTT
SLB: Smith, Jones, Hawthorne, Simmons
Furman is listed at 6-3, 194lbs, and he runs a 4.3 40. It's obvious that he has the potential to grow into an excellent linebacker. I've read that he's being recrutied as a sam linebacker by our staff.
But it seems like we've got some nice options there next season in B. Smith, M. Jones, and B. Hawthorne. It seems like he might have the potential to contribute at SS or FS, where we have less promising options, immediately.
I've seen his highlight tapes, but I've yet to see the man play a game live. Does anyone with more expertise have a better idea?
