Based on OTA's, who are you fired up to see when the hitting starts?

Based on OTA's, who are you fired up to see when the hitting starts?

OK, OTA's were about installations, mental reps and some serious battles between WR's and DB's.

But the next phase is actually putting the pads on and knocking people silly. Its a different ball game.

Personally I wanna see how how the O-line versus the front 7 shakes out. Several LB's looked good in OTA's, but no one was busting them in the mouth either.

With pads I wanna see if Thomas still looks as good versus DB's.

I wanna see if Fleener dominates with someone busting on him from snap to catch.

And of course,I wanna see the big uglies. Rankins, Fairley, Davison and Jenkins versus Peat, Unger, Kelemete and Lelito.

I wanna see how fast Tull, Gwatchem and Edebali are when our OT's punch a hole in their sternum right off the snap. If they can get past Armstead in pads, we might have something.

What do you wanna see most, other than no injuries?

Fleenor and Thomas on Offense.

Harris, Fairley and Rankins on Defense.

Really curious about contributions from Lauranitis and Harper.

Yup pretty much like the op. O.G., Tull, Erik Harris & P.J. Williams on Defense.

Thomas & Lasco for offense. Like to see how Mike handles press. Lasco on screens & if he'll be split out wide.

Vonn Bell and PJ Williams

And to see if Lewis is back to as near as 100% healthy as possible

Curious to see how the three safety looks will pan out and what's in store for Erik Harris

On Offense, Is Mike Thomas capable of being as physical, dishing it and taking it, as Marques Colston was and still show X-receiver hands?

On Defense, he can deny it, but Vonn Bell avoided contact last year at OSU, can he bring the wood week in, week out and not miss games?

Other guys I'd like to see win roster spots are Ryker Mathews, Joseph Cheek, Landon Turner, Daniel Lasco, Davis Tull, Sheldon Rankins, Dillon Lee, De’Vante Harris and Jimmy Pruitt...

Laurinitis, Erik Harris, Bell, PJ Williams, Lewis, Rankins, Fairley, Tull, Gwacham, Thomas, Fleener, Lasco, Lelito and Kelemete. I'd keep going but I'm running out of ink.
