Re: An early look at potential camp battles.

As for Gettis and the O-Line, here is what we have:

Williams, Trent - T (4)
Lichtensteiger, Kory - G/C (5)
Montgomery, Will - C/G (8)
Chester, Chris - G (8)
LeRibeus, Josh - G/C (2)
Hurt, Maurice - G/T (2)
Locks.

Gettis, Adam - G (2)
Compton, Tom - T (2)

Polumbus, Tyler - T (5)
Nixon, Xavier - T (R)
Pashos, Tony - T (10)
Trueblood, Jeremy - T (8)
Mathews, Kevin - C (3)
Ashworth, Jacolby - OL (R)
Stevens, Tevita - OL (R)
Wilborn, Kyle - OL (R)

I really, really don't know how this shakes out. To me, the RT is as close to "wide open" as any position on the team although Polumbus gets the tiniest of bumps for continuity sake. If all else roughly equal, Polumbus keeps his job as starter. If Pashos or Trueblood perform better, they make it. Again, and for the same reason, Polumbus might get the benefit of the doubt on a roster spot, but I wouldn't be surprised if he is gone entirely. I see Polumbus, Trueblood and Pashos fighting for one spot with Hurt as the primary back-up at tackle.

I have Hurt and LeRibeus as locks for the 53 but don't think either is starting.

Compton is only practicing as a left tackle and they won't play him at RT until he learns teh LT spot. To me, that says they aren't confident of his ability and see him as nothing more than a back-up. I may be wrong, but, again, I would not be surprised if he doesn't make the final 53. I think he is still PS eligible.

Gettis goes to PS and Mathews is cut. With Hurt & LeRibeus and the versatility of the interior guys, just don't see us carrying an extra "guard only" / "center only" guys. Chester has the "one OL position only" spot on the roster and will likely continue to hold it.

Nixon had good reviews for an undrafted guy but, well, he is an undrafted guy. I watched his tape - he had some good stuff and bad stuff. Seemed slow and played high, but with some strength. At times, he showed some athleticism but, mostly, seem lumbering and stiff. Not sure which is the real guy. He is PS if he is anything. Hope I am wrong though.

Doubt any of the others make the roster or PS.

I suppose we will. I remember reading good things about Lewis and Dawson.

I'm not sure of Hurt as a 'lock'. He's been the primary backup but he obviously hadn't locked it down (no pun intended) so much that they didn't bring in two veterans in Pashos and Trueblood to compete. If anyone is a lock it's Polumbus.. He got a two year deal and is the returning starter. Hurt, Pashos and Trueblood may be battling for that one spot.

I think Dawson takes 2 PR back in the pre-season and makes the team that way.

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.

Re: An early look at potential camp battles.

Re: An early look at potential camp battles.

This is how I rank them.

Williams, Trent - T (4)
Lichtensteiger, Kory - G/C (5)
Montgomery, Will - C/G (8)
Chester, Chris - G (8)
Polumbus, Tyler - T (5)
LeRibeus, Josh - G/C (2)
Hurt, Maurice - G/T (2)

Locks.


Compton, Tom - T (2)
Gettis, Adam - G (2)
Nixon, Xavier - T (R)
Pashos, Tony - T (10)
Trueblood, Jeremy - T (8)

Mathews, Kevin - C (3)
Ashworth, Jacolby - OL (R)
Stevens, Tevita - OL (R)
Wilborn, Kyle - OL (R)



Anything could happen on this unit.
IMO Polumbus short of having some kind of breakdown will make the team. His size, age and (now) experience make him the 'starter', but that is not written in stone. Word is he has worked hard this offseason and there is some hope of improvement on his pass blocking. But that is subject to verification in a game.

OT Xavier Nixon kind of intrigues me a little. Let our excellent O-line Coach's work with him and let him learn the Shanahan's system. This a big strong kid, he might have some up side.?.?

LB Brandon Jenkins is another guy I look forward to see play. He was a Round 5, pick 29, overall 162 bargain because he was injured most of 2012. He could have gone back to FSU but opted for draft instead. It benefited us because this guy when healthy is a productive athlete that could displace some one on this roster. It will be great to watch.

Except that Hurt also plays guard. I don't think Pashos or Trueblood do. That's why I think Hurt makes the 53. He's pretty much the first guy off the bench at any position except center.

I'd agree with that, flexibility gives him an edge.

Good point.. How much Gettis has improved could factor into that as well. I won't be surprised if Hurt makes the 53 just unsure if it's a 100% lock.
