OK, now that we have the draft (and most UDFA signing) behind us, I wanted to look at where we stand at one of our most problematic areas, CB/S. I think we currently have the following players, which I'm lising in sort-of depth order: CB: Kareem Jackson * Glover Quin Jacques Reeves Brice McCain Antwaun Molden Fred Bennett Sherrick McMannis * Pierre Singfield ** S: Bernard Pollard Eugene Wilson Troy Nolan Dominique Barber Aaron Webster ** Nick Polk ** * is a draft pick, and ** is a UDFA signee. That's 14 people, and I'm assuming we won't carry more than 10 of these on the 53 man roster. So - who do you think gets dropped? My own bets are that we lose Singfield and Bennett (I'm betting Molden gets 1 more year) from the CB group. I don't know about the Safetys - other than Pollard, I don't think any of them are clearly going to make the team, though I guess Wilson and Nolan, if healthy, will be there. It's interesting to me that the CBs are, except for Reeves, all fairly recent draft picks. Bennett is the oldest, at 3 years experience. We're almost certainly going to have to give up on at least one of these young guys this year (unless McMannis goes to the PS or something). Since Rick Smith came here, 9 of his 31 draft picks have been Defensive Backs. In that same time, he's drafted only 5 Offensive Linemen and 4 Defensive Linemen (the others: 4 LB, 3 TE, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 QB, 1 KR). I don't know exactly what that says, but I would hope that after that much of our drafting effort being put into these positions, we would be set there for a while. I'm not convinced that we are, though, at least at Safety.
