You are definitely optimistic. I think there are a lot of questions that will take years to answer about this draft.
Also, I thought Earl was playing SS not FS. I thought I read he could push Brown out of his job.
Trotter would be a huge upgrade over Foreman on the inside. I wouldn't mind adding him.
I believe Coleman's contract expires after this season so we won't need to release him. We just won't re-sign him if we are not interested.
