I hope Turner's emergence is for real and not just a camp thing to motivate the other guys. The number of hits on these lower rated guys keeps adding up and really increases the value of the recruiting classes.

6-1 240 pretty much McCray’s size...it’s been mentioned that Gil really took to the Hebert changes and nutrition and added like 15-20 pounds of lean mass and cutting some excess adipose tissue.  If he’s beating out the 2017 lb trio that is a plus sign in my book because all of those guys are really highly thought of

Amazing how you can tell that based on the fact that you haven’t seen the tackles play...

Theyve had an entire spring and fall camp with Warinner where we haven’t seen ANYTHING. All accounts are that the OL is vastly improved. 

Maybe we should just wait and see what they look like before determining if we’re going to have a bad time based on what you saw 9-12 months ago.

If the interior guys are actually any good this year and overall communication is better, having less than ideal tackles is something you can work around. Even if they just force a rusher to go the long way around, that's enough to get the ball out if you scheme for it. Teams have been doing it against our DLs for a while now.

Remember when everyone shit on the poster who lost his shit when Ulizio was named starter.   It turned out that dude was right.  Not saying this is the case with JR, but he was right.   And so is the guy everyone shits on who calls out the questionable recruiting.  Turns out he was right too.   How many under the radar types have transferred?

Offense:

 

This year

Strengths-  1. Interior OL, 2. RB, 3. TE, 4. QB

Weakness- LT

 

Last year

Strengths-  ?

Weakness- LT, RT, WR

 

So, except for LT, every category has either moved from a weakness to neutral or from neutral to a strength. Sure it would be great to have a Jake Long type out there are LT and I realize it is an important spot, but unless LT is a black hole of death that drastically brings down the entire offense, it sure seems like there ought to be a marked improvement on that side of the ball.

I would change the WRs to maybe X or Z. People are gonna freak out because DPJ is listed at WR 2. Otherwise, this is a great job. Team is loaded with a couple of ?s at OL.

QB is the # 4 strength on offense?  Shea Patterson is a former 5 star recruit in his third year of college football.  He was leading passer in the SEC prior to his injury last year.  I understand that we haven't really seen him yet.....but I'd think that QB would be higher than # 4 (if for no other reason than the upgrade offered over 2017).

In terms of depth, not many teams in the country can match Patterson, Peters, McCaffrey and Milton QB room (and don't forget about Jeff George Jr.!).
