Billy Ocean Posted August 23, 2010 Share Posted August 23, 2010 I think that most of us have heard that Alec Ogletree & Derek Owens are near locks to get playing time this year. I would also assume that more freshmen (and consequently, fewer walk-ons) will be utilized on special teams now that Fabris is gone. CMR has also stated that he was moving towards using less red-shirts in general, w/ the exception of offensive linemen.I was wondering if some of you guys who are more plugged-in to less media-filtered practice reports, like Sac, have been getting any other indications on who will/won't be getting red-shirted. I'm particularly interested in the OLBs, as I suspect that Houston will be picked in the top half of next year's NFL draft. I love Stripling's potential, I just wish he had drank a few more protein shakes in high school. But I would guess that Stripling could still be used on kickoff and punt coverage. Also, I haven't heard any rumblings since spring about Samuel taking a RS this year, but I don't believe he's been able to practice much this summer.
