Sorry About the name of the thread

Will any rookies get playing time besides Santonio?

I could see Anthony Smith getting some PT. It just depends on how he looks during camp...

I can see that happening too. From what i am told he is a film junky and in the NFL that can go a long way. Plus he has got Troy to show him the ropes and i would like to see what Smith can do.

I watched a 5 minute highlight clip of Anthony Smith earlier today, and it seems like he's the real deal. I think he'll be ALOT better than Chris Hope ever was...

I could see Santonio and Anthony Smith getting playing time. Depending on if Willie Colon takes Barrett Brooks's spot, he could get ST time, on field goals and punts. Willie Reid'll get time returning kicks, and if Orien Harris makes the final roster, then you might see him rotated in 4th quarter defense and such. You know how our DL is, always rotating guys in and out...

I really liked the Orien Harris pick. I think he can be very good on our D-Line

Santonio Holmes will be the #2 receiver by the end of the season, and Reid will be the starting KR and/or PR by week 1. I don't expect to see many of the other guys in any other than back-up or ST roles.

Humes will be ST if he gets any action at all. Unless Duce and Verron are injured, you likely won't see Humes have any carries, except in preseason. I'm not saying the guy doesn't have promise, but that's just the way it is. He has to pay his dues. How much do you think Kiesel played his rookie year?
