4. Curtis Brown (Or Allen)
5. Walter McFadden/Antonio Smith/Myron Rolle
6. Rookie/McFadden/Smith/Rolle

So really, there are two spots available; assuming the team selects a corner in the mid to late rounds of the draft and does not sign a free agent at the position.

So there is opportunity. And Rolle was a fantastic athlete at FSU. The year he entered the draft there seemed to be this idea that he was only getting by on intelligence alone which is bull.

I really don't see him making the team, but if he comes in and impresses it's not like there isn't room on the roster. He definitely has a shot.
I wouldn't count Gay out for next year, so all these guys could be fighting for one roster spot and maybe one practice squad spot.

Chris scott was a guy that was touted as maybe an NFL LT, but at the Senior Bowl he showed that he doesnt have light feet to play LT, but is a nasty mauler in the run game. I always thought he would be our future RT or an OG.

The other guy I like is Al Woods at DE. I watched Bama vs LSU his senior year and broke the game down, but looking at guys like Ricky Jean Francois and Tyson Jackson, but Al Woods stood out in that game. I think he is a solid reserve and will be a depth guy here long term.

Myron Rolle S/CB - I think he can make the team as a backup and contribute on Special Teams. CB though?

A few guys I'm looking forward to seeing this camp and pre-season
Chad Spann RB
Trevis Turner OT
Chris Scott OL
Walter McFadden CB
Jerrod Johnson QB
John Malecki G
Kade Weston DL

Baron Batch RB -rooting for him big time. Great kid. will the knee hurt him going forward?
