I have good feelings about this year's offensive product with Wilson and Day. I have no doubt JT will take a step forward.

My biggest question mark is the WR group really. I think we'll see Campbell step up and Hill continue to shine, need the same from Victor and Mack. In order for JT to have a great year, this crew is going to have to make a big leap forward.

This discussion has gone on and on for at least a year. We've all watched balls bounce right off their hands time and time again, the few times they were open. 

At some point you have to move on. Stop putting senior guys ahead on the depth chart when they haven't earned it on the playing field.

This probably won't be popular, but as good as Hubbard has been, I don't think he'll be better than Bosa in year 2...however I bet he starts all year, which is dumb.

We've never actually seen Hilliard play fwiw, and you just named a couple of true freshman in Werner and Browning and we know the likelihood of them seeing the field is definitely can't add them to how much depth we have.

I agree - he was a former safety in HS. Even though he has put on weight for the position, I bet if he dropped 10 lbs he would be dangerous. He absolutely has the speed.

Exactly my point. Can a guy really reach his full potential if he is splitting all of his reps with another guy? If Bosa splits reps with Hubbard and one of the DT's, will we even see all that he has to offer in year 2?

What we do know is that Smith has absolutely been crucial inn developing some studs for OSU in the WR core,

We KNOW that? I think  that's a stretch.

Thomas was a stud for sure, but was developed by his uncle and company while we barely used him last year and his numbers sank.

Devin Smith? Throw it up and let him run underneath it is not developing anyone. When we went to the draft the claim was that he couldn't run routes.

Who else? Jalin Marshall or Braxton? Noah Brown?

I'm not saying Smith didn't have a hand in developing some guys, but I think it would be quite a stretch to say he was crucial to developing anybody. We're bringing in top level blue chip guys, and last year showed they're going nowhere. Remember when NB got hurt last year before the season? Everybody was like, we'll be fine - we've got a room full of 4* guys... we see how well that panned out.

Well that's a legit complaint then... Anyone blaming any defensive player after that game is a fool. 

We were going to have to play lights out on offense to keep up and we did the exact opposite.

Would you gamble your future on this new league that could fold up at any time?  You wouldn't be eligible to go back to college at that point, you're just SOL.

Really good point I hadn't thought of. You choose this league, get paid to play for one season, and then it folds. Now you can't go back to school. What do you do? CFL or Arena League? Euro League?
