Default Pick You're Most Excited About

I've been reading about Cushing, watching highlights and I know it's probably the no-duh pick but I can't wait to see dude crushing RBs and TEs...I wish there was a video of him in a Texans uni taking out a crash test dummy in a Jets uni...maybe with Sanchez's number...

Caldwell. If there is a pick we are least excited about, its Connor Barwin for me.

I'm not going to use the term excited, but I'm looking forward to watching a couple picks during camp and preseason. Caldwell is the first one. I think I'm basing it more on hope than excitement due to past performance at the C position. I hope he can become our long term solution at the position.

Barwin is my 2nd player I'll be zooming in on during camp. Does he really possess the type of quickness to overcome his size in order to be successful in the NFL?

All that said, I will likely be watching several different players throughout camp, but it will be these two garnering most of my attention because of the lack of production from their respective positions a year ago.

Unless someone voted for Glover Quin and did not acknowledge, I am the only one voting for this guy. Here are my thoughts although management is now insisting he will remain a CB.

I hope that our corners Reeves, Bennett, Moldin and Dunta if he is there will be very good this season. Brice McCain may make team if JJ doesn't and 4.33 is fast. I would like to see Quin move to FS if he can beat out Wilson. We have a plethora at CB.

I'd like to see our D backs turn into a strength this season as I expect the line backers to do.

Cushing! Can you imagine him working next to Demeco with the improvements on the DL helping out the LB's and freeing them up a little more, I expect to see a lot of nice plays out of the rook.

Cushing easily. I'm expecting much more from him than the others. I'll gather excitement for the other noobs when I see them playing well.

We very well might have a plethora at CB, but a mojority of the plethora haven't proven diddly. Dunta hasn't proven he's back to 100%. Bennett has been in and out of the lineup almost as much as Faggins was. Reeves has proven he can run with any WR, but hasn't proven he can locate a football that doesn't hit him in the head. Molden hasn't really even been given the chance to play CB. Then we have 2 rookies that haven't played a down in the NFL.

I think our DB's are still one of the largest question marks going into this season.

I went with Barwin. He may not have the biggest impact, but he is sort of the most wild card kind of talent that seems intriguing. Casey sort of does as well, but I can't wait to see what type of level Barwin can play at.

Oh, I agree but this was about excitement. Nothing said about facts. In fact, we have no NFL facts on any of our rookies. I have same concerns as you but am being overly optimistic which is allowed for July. haha.

I hear ya, bro.

To be honest, I will be watching the players, but it is the defensive unit overall that I'm really looking forward to watching. Will this new "aggressive" scheme be any different than the last "aggressive" scheme we were force-fed?

I gotta go with Barwin because he represents our best effort to date to acquire the compliment edge-rusher for Mario.
On the other end of the spectrum for me is Cushing. I just got doubts about using such a high pick on a SAM who may not be on the field in passing situations.

Default Re: Pick You're Most Excited About

I chose Barwin, I hope he takes some of the pressure of Mario.

Cushing is a close 2nd.

I think Cushing is going to make a big difference in stopping the run as well as playing DE some on 3rd down.

The 3rd down defense should be much improved this year if the secondary hols up.

I count D.Gibbs a one of the most important hires. He should be a major upgrade over Hoke. IMO

Hopefully Gibbs can bring the best out of Bennett, Reeves and whoever starts at SS.
