I did my ideal coaches yesterday, here's my player moves for 2011

More mock offseason work here...


Champ Bailey - A move to free safety could be in the long term future

Ryan Harris - when healthy he is our best road paver

Marcus Thomas - nice depth for the line NOT a starter though


Cullen Jenkins DE - 6'2" 305 end in a 3-4.  This is the guy to get in a bidding war for, won't put up huge tackle totals, but Offensive lines double him a lot.

Barret Ruud ILB - could come cheap considering he was upset with the Bucs lack of extension offers in camp this past offseason.  Veteran who plays out of place in a cover 2 heavy D.

Desmond Bishop ILB - Good young ILB of the Packers who have one too many bodies to pay at the position and I think Bishop is the one they let go as Barnett comes back.

On to the Draft:

Trade alert - Denver Broncos trade Kyle Orton for the Minnesota Vikings 2nd and 5th round picks.

Round 1) Patrick Peterson - This guy is Eric Berry special, start him across from Champ in 2011 with primary receiver responsibilities in 2012 as Champ moves to Free safety.

Round 2) Rahim Moore - I look at him as the top safety in the draft.  Plays FS now but could play either spot in Denver.

Round 2) Jared Crick - Could start out of the gate and be part of a now deep defensive line rotation.

Round 2) Jerrell Powe - NT of the future, probably a reach in the 2nd but Denver has to get a long term NT solution.

Round 3) Chris Hairston - Backup offensive tackle to make sure that Beadles is the starter at LG beside Clady

Round 4) Currently no pick

Round 5 (See Orton trade))  Chris Carter - DE/OLB from Fresno State, a depth pick

Round 6) Shaun Chapas - FB depth and special teamer, could push Larsen to start

Round 7) Any corner willing to cover kicks.


Trying to produce some names that we haven't heard over and over before... So my 2011 depth chart looks a little like this:

QB: Tim Tebow, Brady Quinn

RB: Knowshon Moreno, Lendale White, Lance Ball

FB: Spencer Larsen, Shaun Chapas

TE: Dan Gronkowski, Richard Quinn (I know it sucks but I don't have a viable long term solution here, 2012 draft I suppose)

LT: Ryan Clady, Polombus

LG: Zane Beadles, Eric Olsen

C: JD Walton, Russ Hochstein

RG: Chris Kuper, Stanley Daniels

RT: Ryan Harris, Chris Hairston

WR 1) Brandon Lloyd, Eric Decker

WR 2) Bay Bay Thomas, Jabar Gaffney

Slot) Eddie Royal

RDE) Kevin Vickerson

NT) Jamal Williams

LDE) Cullen Jenkins

Rotation guys - Bannan, Crick, Powe, Thomas, Mcbean

LOLB) Robert Ayers (I still believe in this guy), Mario Haggan

ILB 1) Barrett Ruud, Desmond Bishop

ILB 2) DJ Williams, Joe Mays (my take on Williams, he is usually tackling players 8 yards down field, I hear that a lot.  But he tends to run them down, that says to me one of two things a) he is out of position b) he is making up for others missed responsibilities.  The guy has been voted captain by the players a couple years now, players who routinely make mistakes don't have this happen, the guy is making up for our poor defensive line play)

ROLB) Doom, Chris Carter

CB 1) Champ Bailey

CB 2) Patrick Peterson

Nickel) Andre Goodman

depth guys) Perrish Cox and Squid

FS) Brian Dawkins (I've changed my mind, I want you back) Rahim Moore

SS) Darcel McBath, Rahim Moore

K) Matt Prater

P) Britton Colquitt

LS) Paxton

KR/PR) Squid (think he'll be good here, I hope his fumble problems are over)
