Prediction: moderator overreacts, threatens to ban people.

Prediction: Nick Bradley continues to make an infinite number of threads and by the end of the year his post count is 1 trillion

Co-signed
Tarrell Brown was out best cornerback.

He shut down his field which is why teams were just hucking it up to Rogers and Goldson.

T. Brown was our best CB last year, no way he goes from starter to being replaced by a guy who was out of the league last year, on top of that he would have to leap frog Culliver in the depth chart as well.

Lol. You forget about Carlos bro?

But I agree Brown played well enough to start the year as a starter.
brown came on strong as f**k late in the yr, if he can bring on the success he had towards the end of the season and the playoffs our secondary will be very good.

Math is fun: I've been a member for years and have about 2,800 posts. Others have 10x more. I make a lot of topical threads around draft time with mocks and whatnot.

Again, I'll say that b***hing and moaning about too many topical threads is incredibly lame...
Boone starts over Staley at LT and Kilgore owns the RG spot, hands down over Looney. Staley becomes the swing T behind Boone/Davis. More emphasis is placed on off-tackle runs with Hunter/James.

Agreed, the Brown prediction is a little out there. My prediction would be Rogers, Brown, Cully, Cox, Brock, and possibly Holcomb in that order.

1) Dixon gets cut after another offseason of thinking he's on dancing with the stars when he's in the backfield.

2) Agree on the WR's, all 6 will make it. But adding to it I see us carrying 5 TE's and bringing up the Stanford TE from the PS

3) 5 RB's again, Gore, Hunter, LMJ, Jacobs and MIller... with Byham backing up at FB. And a collective sigh of relief as Norris is no longer wasting a roster spot.

4) Both OLB's make the squad, making our 53 man roster look like this:
-TE: 5 (Jennings makes 5)
-WR: 6 (Williams makes it)
-OL: 8 (Slowey makes roster at expense of Ian Williams)
-QB: 3
-RB: 5
-P: 1
-K: 1
-ST: 1 (Either Cartright or Colin Jones)
-DL: 6 (Ian Williams probably cut)
-OLB: 4 (Parys possibly cut/traded if both rookies impress)
-MLB: 4
-CB: 5
-S: 4

I guess anything is possible, but teams are more inclined to have 10 OL than 8. Nine is the standard number. 34 teams usually also carry 9 backers on their roster. Nine secondary members is the bare bones number and the team has regularly carried ten. In a pass-happy league, teams like to have a deep secondary.

Anybody have bold camp battle predictions that they'd like to share? I'll throw a couple out there for conversation:

1. Perrish Cox wins the starting CB job away from Tarell Brown, Brown gets bumped to nickel, Culliver to dime. Ed Donatell was Cox's coach in Denver and the two have a close relationship, He and Coach Harbaugh have a good relationship, and Cox was being groomed to replace Champ Bailey in Denver during his rookie year.

2. Brandon Jacobs gets cut, Boobie Dixon makes the team and we carry 4 running backs. Dixon gets motivated by the competition and he can play ST well.

3. all 6 WRs make the team. Williams avoids getting the axe. Moss looks great in camp.

My bold prediction is that all 3 of your predictions are wrong.

lol
every position is set

the only battles that will be fun to follow are th WR battle and right side of OL

in AD stays at RT will boone kilgore or loney win RG? or will boone get RT and AD move to RG

as for WR #1-3 is pretty much up for grabs
Aldon Smith will be in the starting line up come opening day
Moss and Jacobs don't even make the final cut.
Is there a debate going on with possibly Owusu making the final roster over Williams.
I don't dislike KW, but if we carry six wrs, then maybe Owusu can show that he has quite a bit more upside than Williams, especially if medically he checks out.

KW is a better WR than owosu imo

I got a feeling they may park Owosu on the practice squad this year to make sure he is well on the other side of the head injuries.
