Camp Battles- The journey to 53
 
This is a thread to discuss our many camp batlles.


Beck Vs. Grossman

Running backs

WR's

Let's talk camp battles and how things are progressing.

I think the Skins should keep both Royster and Helu. I would go with

Hightower
Helu
Royster
Torian - get's hurt too often.

Young
Williams

I would drop Sellars.

Wideouts

Terrance Austin over Banks

Not likely they'll keep 4 RBs and 2 FBs. I think it more likely they go 3/2 with Williams being the backup FB who can swing to RB. That means that Royster to me is probably practice squad. No worries though I am sure he ends up on the active roster at some point. I think our RBs have been an absolute revelation this pre-season...but I am thinking mostly we actually have linemen who have the skill-set to execute our running scheme. Last year..not as much.

Because we have not seen Torian I am tempted to cut him. These kids are younger healthier options.

Alot of folks are talking about how many wideouts will we keep but I think we will keep more runners because that is going to be a more inportant part of this years offense.

QB: grossy, becky, kelly
RB: hightower, helu, torrain (royster to PS)
WR: moss, gaff, stall, arm, hank, ?? (paul to PS, maybe robinson too, last spot is probably banks, since we won't ever need that many receivers, but might be austin)
TE: cooley, davis, paulsen
FB: keiland, young (though young could be stashed another year if they want sellers for STs)
OL: trent, brown, hicks, licht, chester, locklear, monty, ??, ?? (we need 2 more bodies, because the guys we're keeping in those last two spots are going to be pretty worthless, and normally we keep another 1-2 on the PS.. weakest depth spot)

Re: Camp Battles- The journey to 53
 
ST: gano, rocca, sundberg

DL: Bryant, Cofield, Bowen, Carriker, Golston, Jenkins (neild to PS)
LB: rakpo, kerry, fletch, blades, rocky, lorenzo, perry, fox?
S: landry, OA, moore, gnomes, doughty
CB: hall, wilson, k barnes, buchanon, westbrook

that's 53, i think you can do 55 now though, so that's 1 LB, 2 OL and 2 ?? spots that don't have a really strong option right now. maybe we could keep 7 WRs :P or mike sellers... or both!

1 spot left open, I'd give that edge to Royster. (Could be Brandon Banks, or Keiland, or Mike Sellers, but he's a 4th string TE, Keilands and undrafted guy who had some production last year but Roysters been drafted so he gets the edge there. BB is good but injury and fumble prone and plays Returner only, where as royster would be a RB, 3rd down back (good pass protector), and a special teams player, even has been looked at as a returner.[/quote]

BB and sellers give you ST plays. royster would be inactive... royster can go to the PS too, so my guess is that's where he'd end up.

If they're serious about getting younger...and better...it's time for Sellers to go.

One kind of interesting thing, I hear that in practice they've been running a lot of plays this past week with Key Williams as the primary 3rd down back, not as a FB. So not sure what could mean.

That and Helu's biggest weakness is pass pro, but he's almost certainly going to be the change of pace guy for Hightower at the beginning of the season.

It also probably means that Darrel Young has won the FB job.

I feel like we haven't had a crop of talent at any position any time recently like we have at FB/TB. We have 3 guys who are legit caliber starting TBs. They're not HOFers but they could all be 1000 yarders in any decent offense. It's a shame at least one of them will be inactive on game days in favor of Williams. I mean he has to be our worst of the 5 guys likely to make the roster. But I guess this is a good "issue" to have.

But here's an area where the backfield we expected when we were busy signing Larry Johnson and Willie Parker, well: it's here now. This is what a loaded backfield looks like.

So you you have Gnomes making the team over Horton? I can live with that. Horton really hasn't been the same from a couple of years ago when he was racking up interceptions and then later got injured.

It would be nice if all the Huskers made the active roster.
