    Put me down for 7-8 for Barwin.

    MW 17-18 and another pro-bowl

    Does anybody think that Cushing may play some DE on 3rd downs?

    It feels great to finally some depth and versatility on defense for the first time since uhh-uhh ever.

    7-8 sounds about right. He should be facing a single blocker, what with Mario on the other side. I say he gets a sack against the Jets, and hits a 4 game dry spell. He adjusts and finishes the season strong.

    I'm surprised by the person who picked 0 sacks.:user:



    Let me throw this in there for people who might have forgot or didn't know. He has only had one year on playing on the defensive side of the ball which was his Senior season. I think he could easily get 5 sacks like Okoye did in his rookie year.

    I like 7. I would call that a mildly aggressive call for an Athlete in his 2nd year at the position, but Barwin seems to be a smart guy, with excellent quickness and surprising power.

    With Mario, and hopefully Amobi/Smith, getting push and attention Barwin might surprise some teams with his edge speed. Early reports out of camp are pretty positive...but they always are.

    I'm still not sure how much PT he'll see given that he'll be backing up Smith. I know we're talking about shifting Smith inside on some plays, but I'll say it again. I think we have better depth at DT then DE and I think we're better served rotating our DTs in and out then sliding Smith in regularly.

    I put 5-6 though I think it'll be closer to 4.5 to 5 range. If he can manage that I'll consider his rooke campaign a success.

    That is just about what I was going to say. I picked 5-6, but I wish there had been an option for 4-5. That would have been perfect.

    I said 2-3 but I think it's really gonna depend on how we end up playing him. I think if he plays as a LB in pass rush situations he will get more sacks but as a DE going against top notch LT's I think he has alot to learn.

    Just for reference, Bulman had 4 sacks last year as a part time DT.

    It's not the sacks I care so much about as I do the QB pressures. If he gets only 2 sacks but has say, 20 QB pressures, then I will be very pleased with him.

    He's a little too raw. I'd be estatic if he got 5-6 sacks his 1st year out.

    it all makes sense when you see the name of swtbound07. Dude would rather make a weak point than make strong sense sometimes.

    Since he's probably only going to be playing on 3rd and longs, I put my vote in the 3-4 range.

    I'm banking on Antonio Smith having more sacks than Connor Barwin.
