Given our projected starting lineup as you would see it if the season started today, you were now forced to start 4 backups over our entrenched starters. Who do you pick and why?
Use that depth chart.
Starks, he had a really good year last year. It's all health now, as much as it would suck to not have Lacy, he's still decent.
Barrington/Lattimore, either one for me. They could also replace Hawk or Jones IMO. At least on early downs. I'll go with Barrington over AJ since I should pick one.
Richard Rodgers over Quarless. I think he should be a decent receiving TE right away.
Linsley over Tretter. I think he would be solid plus protected by the guards.
Corey Linsley over JC Tretter ------ I don't believe there's much of a gap between the two, we'll see.
Sam Barrington over AJ Hawk ------ upgrade in athleticism and range
Davon House over Tramon Williams ------ When House is healthy he has the technique/skill to get it done outside.
Jarel Worthy over Mike Daniels ------ Has the size and strength to hold down the edge.
I wanted to say HaHa Clinton-Dix over Micah Hyde, but I didn't want to state the obvious. Micah Hyde is definitely going to battle to stay on the field, but I think Clinton-Dix is too dynamic to not win the job.

And worthy is an all around terrible selection lol he's not good and hurt and Daniels is our best DL
Would have been easier to just say Hayward imo. I have less issue replacing Daniels as much as choosing worthy. He's just done.... Nothing and he's not healthy atm. Heck I'd take Thornton over him ya know
Adams will earn the 2nd Wr spot
R. Rodgers will earn the starting TE spot
Lattimore will earn one of the MLBer spot
Boyd will earn the NT spot
Pretty confident in Rodgers, i mean there isn't a clear cut #1 TE right now and Q hasn't even practiced yet at all so who knows what's going on with him
Not real confident in Boyd but im not excited about Guion and who knows how Raji is going to play after having back to back horrible years.
MLBer is a weak spot and i don't think it'd be that hard for a guy like Lattimore to show up in PS and win the spot.
I can almost guarantee that it wont happen by week 1 though, it just takes WR's too long to get acclimated to GB's system and earn Rodgers trust for him to beat out Boykin that quick. I could see it happening at some point if Adams is really that good right away but I'm personally doubting it.
Well Adams and Rodgers seem to be getting a long just fine. I think it depends on the system tho. Some systems may take longer for a WR to get a handle on. Adams clearly has the higher ceiling/talent between him and Boykin. I just don't think its going to take too long from Adams to make an impact, maybe not week 1 but def in the first month imo.
Just a gut feeling.
Like i told Kev, i just tried to do something a little different then just agree with everyone. The likely hood of all that happening is slim to none and i understand that.
The only one i am really comfortable with i Rodgers at starting TE.
