There are four aspects of football that I wanted to get opinion on in regards to our preseason record. State your opinions. No one will be totally wrong or right. Just looking for more insight. Scouts: Is our scouting department to blame for not providing our roster with the necessary depth that the coaches need to be able to win in the preseason? How much of a factor is it if our scouting staff identifies better players (perceived) but FA’s/UDFA’s choose to go elsewhere. Will we ever know that answer? Coaching: Is it our coaches responsibility to be able to coach up the players that were provided to them via the front office/coaching staff and develop real depth that we can contribute to our roster? Are the coaches not calling the right plays to help our depth succeed in preseason games? If so are other teams able to coach and call plays better than us in preseason? Players: Does it ultimately fall on the players fault if they are indeed getting coached properly and the plays are called to the players strengths? Is it difficult because not much of game planning goes into preseason making it more on the players fault for whatever reason why they can’t succeed? Do other teams have better players/depth than us in general? Luck: Is this all a crapshoot and our preseason record is indicative of just very bad luck with the ball not necessarily going our way? Whether it be that final missed last tackle, the freak injury, that wrong route, or that forgotten play? What say you? Oh and before anyone says it.. preseason wins don’t matter.
Personally, I am not comfortable with the current linebacker depth that we have. I feel like we are in a better position with DE than LB since we have Crawford and Cominsky that can play both DE and DT. I do like Bruce Carter but Ish I'm very on the fence about. He had an opportunity last year to step up and make a difference but wasn't able to make any type of impact. That means we will see a large dose of Duke Riley, which makes me cringe thinking about it... What are your thoughts on this?
I feel like this draft would be ideal! 14 Cody Ford, IOL Oklahoma 45 Amani Oruwariye, CB Penn State 79 Renell Wren, IDL Arizona State 117 Terronne Prescod, IOL NC State 137 Ben Burr-Kirven, LB Washington 152 Foster Moreau, TE LSU 172 Tyree St. Louis, OT Miami 186 Hunter Renfrow, WR Clemson 230 Jonathan Ledbetter, EDGE Georgia
