I am quite satisfied with how the recruiting class turned out, especially with how it addressed the depth and talent issues in the secondary. At a minimum we will see one new starter in the secondary next season and we will probably see 2-3. (Woolfolk is a lock. Kovacs, Williams, and Floyd all could start or could be on the bench.)
So now we have a slew of players who could make their first start in one of the secondary positions. What do people think the odds are for each of these guys to be the first person to make their first start?
I probably should have someone like jamiemac do this since they are far more qualified, but I'll give it a shot:
-- Turner = 3/2
-- Christian = 3/1
-- Dorsey = 3/1
-- Emilien = 6/1
-- Avery = 8/1
-- Robinson = 10/1
-- Johnson = 30/1
-- Talbott = 50/1
-- Vinopal = 100/1
My gut feeling is that Woolfolk is the starting SS. I think Vlad, Kovacs, and Williams will start out on equal footing for the starting FS spot with Johnson and Robinson getting a look as the season goes on. At corner I think it will be an open competition between Turner, Christian, Avery, Talbott, Dorsey, and Floyd with the best two getting the start. (my money on Turner and Floyd for game #1)
Wow.....they may be young, but isn't it nice to actually talk about a two-deep in the secondary? Hell, this is a three-deep!
