I don't know what about John Gilmore makes you think he's decent. His age? His 1 career touchdown? Career journeyman who hopefully doesn't make the team.

Mendenhall is a good every down back. Redman should exclusively be used if we have big leads to run the clock or when we're in need of a tough yard or two. We still need a decent #2 back imo. Glad Baron Batch is doing well and might win a job over Moore.

I agree. Colon has alligator arms.

I don't even consider them old anymore with the addition to Heyward, who was a steal at 31. If we find a NT we're set for the next 10 years.

Harrison and Timmons are monsters. Harrison is a young 31 because he has only started for 4 years. He shows no signs of slowing down. Woodley is decent. Farrior is on his last leg.

S- Need Troy healthy
Ike isn't a top 10 corner. Maybe top 30. Mcfadden is below average and Gay is bordering horrible.
