Who will be starter at year's end?

We have had discusions on who our opening day starter will be, but who will hold their spots till the end of the year. In the unlikely event of no injuries, who will our starters be in our last game:

WR2- Stallworth or Henderson
WR3- Henderson or someone else
LT- Gandy or Stinchcomb
LG- Holland or Jacox
RT- Brown or Stichcomb
DT1- anyone
DT2- anyone
DE- Howard (if traded) or Smith
SLB- anyone
MLB- anyone
WLB- anyone
CB2- Brown, Craft, Ambrose, Thomas, Smith
FS- Smith or Bullocks
SS- Bellamy, Bullocks, or Mitchell

I think
Stallworth
Henderson
Stichcomb
Holland
Brown
?
?
Howard
Watson
Fincher
?
Smith
Bullocks
Mitchell

DT's and LB are tough
As I was making this, I realized that abouth half of our team will be involved in position battles. This could be a very interesting preseason.

Am I the only person here who is not all that excited about Bullocks?

Ditto. Guess it depends on whether we're going to play man or zone. If we play zone, he should do ok, but our corners will stink. If we play man, he'll look lost but our corners will be good. I don't get this pick.

Excited? Not really. Good pick? yeah.
Its hard to get excited about ANY rookie safety not named SeanTaylor.
He's an excellent cover safety. Probably not a difference maker this year, but when is a safety truly a difference maker? Seldom. Reports say he's absolutely blazing fast out there. Or maybe our WR's have slowed down a lot. My bet is he's fast.
Bullocks looks like a good pick to me. Better than our last two 2nd rounders. If Dwight Smith gets hurt I'd much rather have the No. 2 rated rookie safety than Steve Gleason, Monty Montgomery, or Mel Mitchell out of position. I understand this pick. He could probably even replace Bellamy this year also.

The only 2005 rookies I'm really excited about are Fincher and A-mac, and both probably won't play much this year.

I have to agree with you BnB, I think Bullocks is going to be a beast in the nickle.
