Cornelius Johnson, probably the staff's #1 priority at WR who previously only had Stanford and ND BALLZ, was also CB'd to Michigan today. I believe it was by Tom Loy, the primary ND guy

I don't think we will get a safety that can start immediately. Those are pretty rare. But Quinten Johnson is a pretty good get so far. He runs a sub 4.5 40 so he'll definitely be pretty fast once he gets on the field. Question is if he will remain at safety (likely same position as Josh Metellus) or if he will be moved to viper.

For safety, it seems like we will have Josh Metellus at one spot and then a combination of J'Marick Woods and Brad Hawkins holding down the other spot. I wonder if Jaylen Kelly-Powell may get more play as an heir apparent for Metellus. JKP could also bounce out to be nickel corner.

Can i ask you or anyone else a serious question? Why is it more beneficial to have a viper than a regular LB crew. I mean i like Khaleke but he wouldve been much better as a full time safety. Say we had bush, ross, and mcgrone and then khaleke at safety. Wouldnt that be a much better tradeoff? Vipers/safeties are too small to cover O-lineman runnin at them and because of that, the staff makes them gain weight to compensate for that while losing speed and cover skills when dropping back as a safety on some downs. Idk if it makes sense, but basically my point is the viper position is a useless position if your name is not jabrill peppers.

Viper is part of Don Brown's defense.  And except for a few games (three or four at the most) it's been a great defense.

It may be worth it for Brown to modify his defense to better defend against Ohio State but that is a decision for Brown and Harbaugh.

FWIW - Ohio State's offense this year matches up better than their "normal" offense with a running QB.  Not enough to explain giving up 50+ points, but there is something there.
