2004 Defensive roster…
Could this be a dream come true?

I know rookies won’t start right away, but I could see this line-up dominating in the VERY near future.

RDE-Howard
DT-Sullivan
DT- Young
LDE-Grant

SLB- Donterrious Thomas(2a), Hodge/Allen
MLB- Rod Davis(2b), Ruff
WLB-Cie Grant, Derrick Rogers

CB- Dunta Robinson (1), Ashley Ambrose
CB-Fred Thomas, Keith Smith(3)

FS-Tebucky Jones
SS-Mel Mitchell

There is very little chance of Keith Smith falling to the 3rd.

I hope Tebucky has been learning how to tackle this offseason.

But there is a LITTLE chance.
Maybe the small school tag allows him to slip. I say a 1-5 shot of slipping into the third.
But you can insert any 3rd round CB into that spot and hopefully develop him into a solid nickle by seasons end.

After Vasher\'s poor 40 times (4.7 - 4.8) at his pro day, he may slip into the 3rd. I think he\'d be good value in the 3rd, when I\'ve seen him play he seemed faster than that, and i know he ran a 4 second short shuttle, which is a good time.

There was very little chance Deuce would fall out of the top 10. He went 23rd so anything is possible with any player as this point. We\'ve still got weeks to go and there is ALWAYS a bombshell dropped on a couple players a week or two before the draft.

Keith Smith could have watered down urine for all we know. :P

2 rookies and a 2nd year as the starting LBs next year? That\'s gonna be a long shot. I doubt even Haslet has the \'nads to do that.

Here I was thinking Haslett was neutered after the 2001 season . Guess there seems to be some doubt about that ....

You missed the 1st part I wrote...
\"I know rookies won’t start right away, but I could see this line-up dominating in the VERY near future. \"
By new future I mean midway to end of season.
Although I think Hall could start if he had a full camp (no holdouts), Maybe Davis too.

How would this be worse than what we fielded at the LB position last year? I watched at least half of the games Thomas and Davis played at AU and Southern Miss. Each of these guys has the ability to be better than the players we have currently at the position by the end of the season. They will definitely compete for serious playing time early in the year.

Nice lookin\' unit, Danno. Don\'t know much about Keith Smith, but I defer to your judgement.
