Keenan Allen was our big fish, plays both ways but will playing WR for us there's a chance he'll see the field a lot this season, as a matter of fact I think he's gonna be the starter on the opposite side of Marvin Jones, which leaves Ross in the slot where he's more effective IMO
Vereen's getting all the ink but Deboskie behind him is no dropoff in talent and Isofele has gotten huge praises from the coaching staff. I hear Sofele is the next Best/Vereen type player and it wouldn't shock me if he took PT away from Deboskie (this would say more about Sofele's skills than Deboskie disappointing, BELIEVE ME)
On the D-line I think Aaron Tipoti and Kendrick Payne could surprise us, we all know Cameron Jordan is a beast at DE.
Our biggest concern is Riley for sure and 1A IMO the offensive line. 1B our secondary, Hagan looked REAL good 2 years ago but was a disappointment last year and he's supposed to be our LCB this season
I hear we don't have clear cut starters at both safeties spots which is a bit unnerving. I could had sworn Cattouse was gonna be an undisputed starter this season but it doesn't seem that way.
Overall I think we'll over-achieve because expectations are so low this season. 8-4, don't wait standing up for roses.
