What do you think our secondary will look like. I think three spots are setled. I think FS is Brian Randolph and Free Saftey will be Ladarrell McCneil and Riyahd Jones. Who do you think will be the other corner and the nickel. I think that Eric Gordon will be the other starting corner and Geraldo Orta will be the nickel. Or Justin Coleman could start and Eric Gordon could be the nickel or Lemons Johnson and Eric Gordon being one if the back up spots What do yall think
I think that all we can do is hope that Riyahd Jones can contribute. Anyone penciling him in is getting ahead of themselves. We've never seen him play a down.
FS: Brian Randolph (if rehabbed fully)
SS: The Darrell McNeil
CB: Justin Coleman
CB: Daniel Gray
NB: Eric Gordon

Randolph is the one guarantee (assumed healthy)... I like McNeil better than Moore. Moore is slow and takes terrible angles. McNeil will have a full off-season to get faster...
At CB I'd like to see Gray, Oliver, and Coleman battle it out. I don't want Eric Gordon anywhere close to the football field. Sick of getting burned over the middle all the time. Let's hope Riyahd Jones can play and work his way into the mix.
I wouldn't be upset at all if JRM proved he could play nickel right off the bat.
That's just a hope, though. I'm not counting on it.

Oliver is the real wildcard in my book.
Is Brewer still in the conversation for time at DB? He's played a lot of football for us now, was already more mature from his time in pro baseball, and a year removed from injury. Could he be someone that makes a come back under the new staff?
Much has been made about the need to upgrade speed in the secondary. I'd assume this lineup is a marked improvement speedwise over Teague, Waggoner, Brewer, and Moore. How do you think the 5 new DBs coming in compare to what's on our current roster in the speed dept?
Seems at though M. Foreman, R. Jones and C. Sutton are quick. They're listed at 4.45 40 times. Lemond Johnson is slightly slower at 4.50. And JRM is listed at 4.8 which is why I, personally would like to see him in the box rather than the secondary on D. Granted, the thing that made me pull my hair out last season was the lack of intuitiveness our DB's had when it came to taking the correct angles on the ball and for tackles.

Thanks Moony. JRM's 4.8 seems a bit slow but they keep referring to him as a safety. Spring practice can't get here quick enough!
I think the idea that JRM playing safety is possible because he's got a lot of great football skill and knowledge, but if we're going for great linear speed in the secondary, I'm not sure he's the best candidate. He can tackle the lights out of you though.
You guys should watch his film instead of looking at the listed 40 time. Who knows how accurate that is...
The point is he looks pretty fast on film. I don't know if he's fast enough to represent a speed upgrade in out secondary, but that shouldn't be determined based on the 40 time on his profile.
Keep in mind that Brent Brewer has one of the fastest 40-yard dash times on the team, but he has struggled mightily at times.
I think we are deeper than we thought and Dooley wouldn't give certain players the time of day.
