Shaun Hill will be our starter and I'm happy with that.
Marvel Smith's Health
If we get 8 games with a pro bowl RT on the cheap without a long term commitment, I'll be very happy.
Walt Harris' Replacement
Dre Bly has proven that he can play. I don't trust Denver stats, especially since they replaced their DC with Nolan. And CB's learning a new playbook isn't like a QB. He'll do fine.
Haralson is under rated. Lawson I am concerned about but now that he's healthy and has another threat on the other side of the line, things should open up a bit more for him. Plus we drafted Lawson to be a pass rush threat, may as well try it out.
Michael Crabtree's Foot
I'm going to worry about Crabtree next year. We have plenty of depth at WR this year, there is no need to rush him onto the field. Especially when there are health concerns. No harm in letting his foot heal. If he gets 10 catches this season, I'll be happy. But he was drafted in the 1st, he'll probably get in as our #3 receiver, at least #4 and get 20-50 catches this season.
My real concern is new OC Raye. His record is spotty and he hasn't called plays in a long long time... probably for a good reason I'm assuming. And it's his first year here, should be interesting to see how long it takes the team to get comfortable with the play book. But I am looking forward to seeing us run between the tackles with Norris leading the way. Plus I have a feeling that VD is going to be used a lot more this year. Maybe not running routes but more like getting him into open space, turned around looking at the QB so he can catch the ball and letting him build up some steam before he gets tackled... this could be his last chance to prove he can be a passing threat.
