Andy Mulumba
Chris Banjo
Johnny Jolly
Sam Barrington
Brandon Bostick

Every one of these players showed enormous potential throughout TC. Mulumba could develop into a very, very special pass rusher. Barrington looks to have the "it" factor in knowing where to be and to finish plays. Bostick seems to have all the tools to be a complete TE. Banjo beats the odds nearly every time to play bigger than his 6-0 207. And, Johnny Jolly, returning to form a better man and player.

All of these guys have the intangibles we all want on our team. Instincts and play making ability that shows up on the field.

Great to see.

Disappointed in Alex Green, Kevin Dorsey, Charles Johnson, EDS, Van Roten, DJ Williams, BJ Coleman.

Guys who don't deserve it: Kuhn, EDS, GVR, Mason Crosby. AJ Hawk?

and the negativity begins!!!

RollEyes RollEyes RollEyes

Thankfully Ted, Mike and company are in charge, of analyzing talent not you.

Thankfully your opinon is yours and nobody has to or hardley ever agrees with you.

Amazing how you can judge players before they have taken one snap of "real" football.

Don;t worry, only a week away until you can start spewing your negativity all over this forum as players you have deemed"undeserving" make a mistake or 2.

So happy for Jolly. Talk about the odds being against you and it seems he has not missed a beat yet hasn't been in football shape in a years. Hope this guy stays clean as right now he can be an inspiration to many out there that our struggling with addiction issues.

I partially agree. Hawk (as well as B. Jones) would be better replaced by any two of the ILBs kept and cut, but of course, it wouldn't happen. Van Roten wasn't much, but neither were any of the other backup O Linemen. I would have been fine with cutting Kuhn, but I can grudgingly see that in keeping him one more year also.

I'm looking for a good, maybe great year from Crosby, and I think EDS is at least decent in an O Line where decency doesn't extend much beyond Sitton (the jury is still out on Bakhtiari).

BTW, you had EDS and GVR in both groups - or is there a different GVR than Van Roten hahahaha.

give the young ILBers a year or two to learn the NFL and they will be the starters.

I am not sure who I am most pleased with making this team. it could be guys like Samwise Barrington or Nate Palmer bevaue i know a little of their back stories and it is hard for any 6-7th round picks to make it in the NFL especially on a team that is as talented as GB. Perhaps it is Jolly because of all the he as come through. It doesn't happen very often that a guy self destructs his career and then digs himself out of that hole. Careers are not that long and to miss out on 3 of his most productive years was a huge blow. There are many who would have packed it in and gave up.

The o line and the running game will be a work in progress and we will need to be patient. I like our 53, I think some of the youth pushes guys to play better for fear of being replaced. that is why Van Roten was particularly disappointing; he probably did the least of the guys kept with his opportunities but he fits the look and attributes you want for your back up center. He still needs more time to develop though...

If only you hadn't mentioned Hawk - you wouldn't have incurred the wrath of Mr. Ohio! RollEyes

I wish I knew Buckeye's address, I'd mail him the Hawk jersey I foolishly purchased his rookie season.
