    Looking forward to seeing what Torrance Gibson can do, along with newbies Binjimen Victor and Austin Mack. Having two 6'4" gazelles on the outside and a freak like Mack in the slot could be something special. Not to mention having Brown, Campbell, Clark, Dixon, Hill, and McLaurin.

    I hope Noah brown got back to his pre season hyper last year and gives us what we dreamed about. Paris Campbell showed some promise hopefully his hands got better. If cs stays healthy too. Those are the most known. Q is who will be/stay healthy

    And you left out Wilson, who I am hoping has a break out year with no injuries. He has really bulked up and got some PT toward the end of the year even though he wasn't quite 100%. I expect if he is healthy he starts.

    From the players that I've seen who have had pt, I say Noah Brown Corey smith and young Desoto Wilson will be the focal 3 I'm guessing Samuel goes back to running back for the most part and becomes one of the best all purpose backs in the country. From there I would say Torrence Gibson will gain experience and make some huge plays KJ Hill I think is a young more explosive Santonio Holmes so I feel like he'll get a lot of experience...I think Austin Mack "will" see the field. I didn't forget about Paris Campbell, just haven't seen enough of him he didn't play enough to impress me but I do know he's a good blocker. Terry Mclaurin I think is the wild card because he did impress me in his small sample size of pt he's fast and can go up for jump balls for a smaller receiver would not be shocked in the slightest if he emerged as one of the starters.

    Noah, Corey and Curtis start.

    Austin, KJ, Parris and Dontre contribute.

    Torrance, Terry and Demario help in spot duty.

    Noah, Corey and Curtis start
    (when Curtis plays RB) Campbell in
    rotation of KJ, Torrance, Terry, and Dontre
    I see Austin getting little PT and Binjimon as a RS
    Dixon and Clark will continue to be wildcards due to injuries. They both could definitely throw monkey wrenches into the mix, as both have every bit of the talent to get in that rotation and push someone out

    Now I think I'm confusing Campbell with mclaurin. Which one played last year

    Campbell mostly until he got a little case of the dropsies Mcalurin played mainly on special teams
    Both have great speed(legit 4.4 range) but need to put it all together(blocking, consistency, routes, etc)

    Is this another thread where we can bitch about the position coach???

    I kid.

    Being from Little Rock, I hope KJ Hill does something special and earns his way into the field.

    Yea I know but that's what I see, and when I say that I mean at the same stages of their careers, KJ is a heck of an athlete.
    Also don't be surprised if he gets first crack to take over for punt return duties, kids legit.

    One quibble, my expectation/hope is for more than "Spot" duty for Gibby.

    He has a size/speed quotient we haven't seen around here.
    Potentially dynamic.

    My sense is Urban will spend a good deal of time coaching and making him a special project.

    I don't mean to say he'll play as much as Stephen Collier, I just view him as a backup to the backups until he becomes more consistent. Hopefully that happens quickly and our shared hopes for him come true sooner than later. His potential certainly is scintillating.

    For now, he needs to catch KJ for the right to be in the mix for backup snaps. I'm also curious to see if they give him reps in a wildcat package to limit hits on Barrett. That will require the offense to be a fairly well oiled machine though, because if they're not they will be using those reps to get it together.

    Pencil Dontre in as a co-starter? Hard to imagine him getting buried given the lack of experience on this team.
    I'm curious to see what happens at RB. If a stud doesn't develop, do we see more of Samuel and Wilson on the field at the same time?
