    Trying to change a short RB into a WR? That's crazy. My prediction:
    He tears it up in pre-season returning kick\punts
    He will struggle as a WR
    Kubiak lets him go
    Some other team picks him up as a KR\PR and he has an awesome season. I really do think he would do OK as a RB-get rid of Chris Henry, jeez.

    Regardless of the feedback, he's a kid. I think they see the potential, but there is still a big ? attached to him. I think what happens will ultimately depend on what goes on during training camp and the preseason games. If he shows flashes, he may actually be on the 53 or put on the practice squad. I have no idea what will happen because I never watched the kid in college and have no idea how he will match up in the NFL. I wish him luck though, we need all the help we can get.

    I want him to be an impact player, I can see him scoring a touchdown and Mighty Mouse the cartoon character showing up on the big screen, kind of like super mario, that would be cool.

    Since Kubiak has been here everyone of his draft picks have remained with the team in some fashion their 1st year. So, I'd be surprised if he was unable to make the 53. Even if he can't I think they'll find a way to stash him away for the season.

    Perfect practice squad candidate.

    He or Dickerson will make the final 53.

    If Holiday tears it up on ST he will get the final spot. IMHO

    I think they both make it. Holliday is a cheaper, better returner than AD. We are pretty set at receiver, so I think AD gets the axe.

    DD makes the team, again because of special teams. I see him being a great special teams player while he learns the receiver position.

    Yup. His speed is a weapon, a constant threat that just needs to be honed. You can't teach lightning. You can teach where a hole is. Maybe he ends up being the 5th or 6th WR but honestly...if we're seeing more than 4 WR a game something is probably going wrong...

    If his ability/speed as a KR/PR are as good as I think they are, there's no way he doesn't make the team. He has the speed to be a game changer. JMHO!

    I hope he makes the squad. The guy has game changing speed. Still not sure why they're choosing the run his as a WR though. I suppose they figure that's the best place he has a chance to make the roster. Though, I'd echo someone else's sentiments. Cut Chris Henry instead.

    Far as Dorin Dickerson goes, the guy is talented and has some serious upside. I think both will be incredibly hard to stash away on the PS.

    Perhaps they decide to go with 6 WR this season. Cut AD and with the first 4 WR spots taken care of let those two develop.

    Mighty mouse makes it if he burns up returns. Despite what Kubes is saying now about expecting to use him as a WR, before it's all over, you will be seeing him used at least sparingly as a change of pace/3rd down back.

    After watching him play this weekend, I can't say I was too impressed and I don't think he will make the team.

    I have not seen many people talking about him, so I wanted to know what you guys thought after watching him play.

    FWIW! I felt sorry for him. He looked confused and kinda lost. I have a feeling if they try to "over" coach this kid, they will ruin him for sure. Just let him catch the damn ball during preseason and take off with it, use his natural instincts, and see what happens. They knew he was "little" when they drafted him, so leave him be and let him do what comes naturally, which is RUN!!!!

    I don't think he ever really got a chance to showcase his speed against the Cardinals. Maybe next week he will be able to hit his top gear and show why he was drafted.

    I'm kind of with you on that...

    But Trindon has also got to make smarter decisions...

    As of right now, it's not looking good for him to make the team
