Martez Wilson, should he mature could be your inside linebacker with Vilma's coverage skills put outside at SLB...

Shanle and Casillas can't seem to establish whose the starter...
I'm leaning toward 10 D-linemen too but that's gonna leave LB or safety a lil thin.

I like Martez to stay outside. Dunbar looks like a solid back-up to Vilma and Wilson blitzing off the edge looks lethal. It looks like its starting to click for him.

We're gonna cut some good players.

That hasn't happened often under these circumstances (respected, proven people making tough decisions) in the history of this franchise...

Arrington is the most frustrating of the cuts; if he'd bring the effort every play and toughen up...damn

I thought Miller looked slow off the snap. He has good accelleration, but not much burst off the line. At least thats the way it looked to me.

So 5 DTs: Rogers, Ellis, Franklin, Johnson, King and Miller - that's 6 DTs, so one will be cut out of Johnson, King and Miller. Or maybe try to get King into the PS, but there's a danger of some other team snatching him up. I still don't see Johnson being cut because of the monetary investment in him and with what he showed before he got injured... clearly the best out of those 3!

Johnson is taller than Ellis and King is about as tall, while Ellis is beefier than both of them, but that can fixed without genetic manipulation.

He did look slow off the snap but I think that confused the OL because they didn't block him. Don't know if that was by design or he just doesn't get a good jump.

If it is by design, then it would be a stunt...
