I still can't find anything that says he was getting beat on every deep pass.

I read he got beat on one play against Cooks.

By the way, he's taking a lot of snaps at FS with Byrd out, which I think is a good move.

I don't know who my dark horse is right now. I really want to see Cooks do well. We don't have the best track record with 1st rounds WRs

Flanders and Coleman, if they get designated to PS, will be picked up by other teams.

I have not read anything about Corey White getting beat a lot. In fact I have not read anything about him at all. I do think P-Rob is easily the frontrunner at #2 corner if his leg is right. I like both players a lot. I do believe Champ is probably firmly locked into the nickel/slot role at this point.
Everything I've read says Champ is the starter opposite Lewis and that he's only run with the 1st string. Y'all don't sleep on Champ Bailey.

Re: Camp Stock up/ Camp Stock Down

^ I'm not counting out Bailey, but Robinson basically beat out Greer for the #2 CB last season. It didn't start off that way, but by the middle of the 2nd quarter against the Falcons Robinson was getting most of the playing time and Greer was nickel. It stayed that way until Robinson got hurt against the Bucs. Incidentally he was covering Vincent Jackson almost exclusively that day, so he may have even been considered the #1 CB at that point (remember though Keenan struggled a little bit early on).

If Robinson is full strength and his leg is good I think he's easily our 2nd best corner. Either way I expect there will be a healthy rotation so we can throw a lot of different looks at them. White and Bush both got a ton of playing time early on last season despite being low on the depth chart. It's essentially the same thing we do on offense where even our biggest playmakers are only playing about 65-70% of the snaps.

I say Corey White stays our #2 CB, with Bailey in the nickel. White did an awesome job last year all things considered. He was pretty much thrown into the fire with not a lot of experience at the CB position, and of course he had a few bumps here and there, but he progressively got better as the season went on. If his level of play from last year carries over into this year, I don't see any reason why he'd be unseated at the position.

Re: Camp Stock up/ Camp Stock Down

I think Patrick Robinson is hands down better then Corey White. I feel like Corey White is just another Malcolm Jenkins with better speed. They can't figure out if he's a corner or safety.

Re: Camp Stock up/ Camp Stock Down

I'd say stock down for Ryan Griffen. Every interception I see is thrown by him. I'm not saying he can't develop more but c'mon this is 7-on-7 for Christ sake. I don't have as much faith in this guy becoming the next Chase Daniel as I used to.

Re: Camp Stock up/ Camp Stock Down

If healthy Robinson should win the #2

Now White and Champ man the middle.

Champ gets the quicker slot

White goes strong side (TE) and has running back duties.

I today's pass happy NFL it is weird to be using nickle and dime as much as it is SS and FS.

There is no such thing as a pure SS any more. same goes for CB now.
