So with Jason Verrett just getting back into the swing of things, Trevor Williams will start Sunday against the Seahawks at corner is how it looks. The team didn't address defensive back until the 4th round and the player we thought would play nickel, Desmond King, is listed as the 3rd string free safety. That's interesting.
Last years 4th round pick Josh Perry is buried on the depth chart behind a guy that I've honestly never heard of. Big eye roll at Dwight Lowery>Tre Boston but I imagine both will play a ton this year so the starter tag doesn't mean all that much. No real surprises other than that defensively. On paper, this is a very good unit. They'll need one of the young interior defensive linemen to step up.
Offensively Spencer Pulley gets the nod at center. We'll see if he can hold off Dan Feeney or if the team wants Feeney to be the right guard. Kenny Wiggins isn't or at least shouldn't be the answer there. Last year’s 3rd round pick Max Tuerk apparently has had trouble snapping the ball so him playing at guard makes a lot of sense. Slauson should be a giant upgrade from Orlando Franklin and many feel guard is his natural position. These line combinations/battles are going to be interesting to see how it all plays out.
No surprises on the perimeter as Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams are starting. Williams was an after thought this time last year. He's come a long way and his game will have to continue to grow. I get the importance of field position and a returner but I wouldn't waste a roster spot on Isaiah Burse.
Any real surprises to you guys?
