Foston and Burke

I'm going with two freshmen for starters. Amaad Foston, just seeing some of this kids workouts it reminds me of the workouts Jahmeer Carter posted before his arrival and he's a arrived for the Winter program. He has some solid competition and I'd almost want to lean to Walker/Hollins but something tells me this freshman will make a difference even if he doesn't start or crack 100 carries.

As for Burke, this is just a feeling. I'm hoping that Darrius Bratton will stay healthy next year, but history has gone against this at least for a full season. And I'm really hoping that Cross won't have to return to corner and stays at Safety. The transfer is an option, but I just think Burke will come in and play a big part in the secondary improving.

For my second pair I'm going with the transfer Jelani Wood and whom ever wins the OLB spot opposite Noah. Jelani I think has a similar year to what Poljan and is a big addition especially considering he's coming in the Winter and he'll have an off-season to gel with the team and learn the off-season unlike Tony. Tony had almost 40 catches and 6 TD's with 400+ yards receiving. A similar or better performance and that would be big for next seasons O.

I have no clue who will win the job and of course there is the ILB spot which can be equally as impactful, but OLB's in the 3-4 are the primary pass rushers. The GT transfer is interesting, but he'll be learning a new system and he's spent the past 2 years as a DE I believe so he's got some transitioning to do before making an impact. I've been rooting for Elliot Brown and the way seems clear for him to be the man if he approaches the off-season diligently and works on building strength and size. But there is Perry who's made plays in a reserve role. The guy I'm interested in is Horton. Size and talent it might be hard not to give him a shot and he has ability to be a difference maker I believe.
