    Looks like, with the signings they've made, they'll try to keep Joeckel at guard where they like him.


  • The Slag and Parley Forums

    Just going to make changes where my guesses are..and an occasional comment.

    QB (2)

    Russell Wilson
    Trevone Boykins Really turns it on in games..can still be reckless. I am kind of tempted to see if they could now trade him a little something something as in regular season I dont think our odds of winning or losing vary much between him and Davis.. but Boykin seems to be sexy enough and to have shown enough to get us a 6th rounder.

    RB (4)

    Thomas Rawls

    Eddie Lacy Outside of one run last week Lacy just looks lethargic and slow to me. Lots of money to pay him.. I think, and I want to see game 3 of the preseason first , but I THINK I would put Carson ahead of him on the depth chart.

    CJ Prosise If CJ Prosise cant go this week.. it gets interesting.

    Chris Carson

    FB (1)

    Marcel Reece. Could Eddie Lacy be HERE? I dont know enough about his blocking, but he could be a John L. Williams era FB.. blocking AND running.

    WR (6)

    Doug Baldwin
    Kasen Williams
    Tyler Lockett

    Jermaine Kearse Im torn. He is probably the #5 WR at this point, and at that point, I start to think I want to give the spot to an up and comer and who offers a variety of things to the team.

    Paul Richardson
    Amara Darboh Would he make it to the practice squad if cut? I know he was a relatively high pick but has he shown up at all?

    I think my WRs are like this:

    Baldwin
    Lockett
    Richardson
    Williams
    McEvoy
    Lawler

    TE (3)

    Jimmy Graham*
    Luke Willson
    Nick Vannett

    OL (9)

    LT Matt Tobin This is who they hope will win it anyway..
    LG Luke Joeckel They like him RIGHT HERE>.
    C Justin Britt
    RG Justin Pocic
    RT Germain Ifedi

    Mark Glowinski
    Jordan Roos
    Rees Odhiambo
    Oday Aboushi

    DL (9)

    DE Cliff Arvil
    DT Jaran Reed
    DTAhtyba Rubin
    DE Michael Bennett
    DE Frank Clark
    DE Cassius Marsh
    DE David Bass
    DT Quinton Jefferson
    DT Nazair Jones

    You wrote 8 but you listed 9..

    LB (6)

  • All I have to add to this right now is *Boykin.


  • The Slag and Parley Forums

    Boykins. Plural. There are two of him.;)



  • If only!


  • The Slag and Parley Forums

    I don't think Darboh will last on the practice squad if they try to stash him there. My UM homerness would love if he could prove to make the squad but bottom line is; I want the Hawks to stock up the best players they can.

    There's a lot that we don't see since a lot of these projections are based off of pre-season and reports out of training camp.

    The Seahawks have shown that they cut mid-round draft picks in hopes of stashing them on the PS but they understand that it's a risk. Due to the health concerns of some players it makes it so much more difficult to know how the fringe guys will play out.

    Youre probably right..the numbers game at WR means no matter what someone we "like" is going to get moved. Im kind of sort of hoping they trade someone to Buffalo ..and maybe even the 49ers..those two teams have little quality at WR and even Kearse would be an upgrade for them. Not that I really want to get rid of Kearse but I feel at this point Williams could offer more if given the chance..


  • The Slag and Parley Forums

    I agree with both of these replies. Sigh. Darboh is such a great story but this squad will be hard for some rookies to make the 53. The other Michigan kid(Hill) makes the roster. He looked pretty good the last game and we need the depth for SS behind Kam. He made a couple nice run stuffing tackles out there. Thank god for Gamecast or I never would have seen any of these kids play in game time. Speaking of Rooks; Naz is looking really good!!!



  • @legionofboom Naz is probably the lone standout. Would love to see him with the #1's to see what he could do when playing with Rubin/Reed, Arvil and Bennett.

    @sammyc521 Me too!!!!
