    I was wandering with current FA and draft picks ,who do you think will be the starters? I think it will look like this:

    Salaam/Pitts/Flanagan/McKinney/Winston

    Avery huge upgrade from last year.

    Why is Salaam, a RG in a zone blocking scheme, our LT?!?! That seems eerily familiar to Victor Riley...:crying:

    He was the starting LT in Denver's zone blocking offense. Where'd you get RG?

    That is how I see the season starting, but Spencer and Winston will get some rebs and by the end of the year, at least one of them will start.

    Opening day I see Pitts, McKinney, Flanagan, Weigert, Winston. This lineup wont last long because Winston and Spencer will be looking to move into the starting lineup quickly. Wand is starting to improve, but he is still a bit away, he is getting the reps right now, but his footwork and power are better suited for the right side.

    whoops...thought he played OG for the Jags, before he got bounced.

    I've done a little more research now, but still a little hesitant to start a LT that's been bounced off three teams. :hides:

    I am waiting for Runner's opinion. He should be back on the boards Monday, and hopefully will have a lot to say about this. He's always had the inside story on the line, and I would love to hear his take on the new acquisitions (Spenser, Winston).

    I suspect that despite bringing in the new guys, the line will look like this on opening day:

    Wand/Pitts/Flanagan/McKinney/Weigert

    Spenser and Winston need time to "gel." They will see time on special teams. Any changes to this lineup over the upcoming season will be due to injury.

    The hole in my theory is very little knowledge of Salaam. I assumed we were just picking up another dude for depth. Is he good enough to contend for the starting RT spot?

    well, it won't be:

    Riley, Pitts, McKinney, MBrown, Wade... and for that I'm grateful.

    probably: Wand, Pitts, Flanagan, McKinney, Weigert.... with a bench of talented guys- Spencer, Winston, Hodgdon, Loverne, Salaam.

    This depth/competition thing that Kubiak believes in is pretty crazy, huh!?

    I think Weigert could be a June 1st cut. We added decent depth and he counts heavy toward the cap.

    Wand, Pitts, Flanagan, McKinney, Winston.

    I think Spencer is the LT of the future for us, atleast as of now I do. Wand will be Sherman's project, and Winston might be teh best RT currently on the roster. Damn our O-line sucked recently.
