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.

Re: Camp Battles- The journey to 53

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

Re: Camp Battles- The journey to 53

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.

Re: Camp Battles- The journey to 53

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!

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.

I think it's because Keiland is going to be active on gamedays for his special teams abilities and our actual third RB (be it Torain or Royster) will not be very often, so it makes sense to use Keiland's versatility for that.

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.

Re: Camp Battles- The journey to 53

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.

I think we expected a lot of things from a Mike Shanahan roster and haven't received a whole lot in return. 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.

I doubt it -- torain was having a pretty nice season for us and his experience alone gives him an advantage over royster and helu. Torain, Helu, and Hightower will make the roster with Royster going to the PS -- that being said, I hope we can hang on to Royster and not have someone claim him
