First impressions?

  • There is no “OR” at the QB position and hey that’s a pretty nice thing.
  • Daylon Mack isn’t listed as a starter. Probably not a big deal as there will be plenty of rotation on the defensive front.
  • We have a guy named TANK on the 2-deep and this is important.
  • Your starting linebackers are [shakes Magic 8-ball] Washington, Alaka, and Moore. If they can all stay healthy, this is a very good lineup.
  • Priest Willis is starting at corner and oh look a UCLA transfer, there’s some more fodder for week 1.
  • Ratley as the fourth starting WR is a little bit of a surprise, maybe? (RSJ, Reynolds, and Kirk are no-brainers.)
  • Looks like we’ll be rotating three backs pretty regularly.

What does everyone think?
