FalcoChicquera Posted January 12, 2012 Share Posted January 12, 2012 (edited) Be warned, everyone will hate at least one thing in here.I want us to move towards a more spread out offence using a base formation with 3WR-1TE-1RB and a heavier set of 2WR-2TE-1RB. The full back will only be used in short yardage and goal line situations. The defence will use Nicholas as a rusher far more in 4-3 under looks, and will have resources dedicated to the front 4. The coaches I want would implement these schemes.New StaffOC: Todd Haley (former OC Arizona Cardinals 2008 with Fitz/Boldin/Breaston that went to the SB)DC: Steve Spagnuolo (former DC Giants 2007 with the pass rush that beat Brady)Cuts (total cap saving: $8m)Michael Turner (5m cap saving if cut after June 1)Ovie Mughelli (2.1m)Garrett Reynolds (400k)Sam Baker (500k)Turner and Mughelli are not required in this more spread out offence that de-emphasises the full back. Neither are young or cheap so they will not be worth anything in a trade. Baker and Reynolds are not of an adequate standard.Not Re-SignedJohn Abraham,Kroy BiermannJames SandersJason SnellingKelvin Hayden, Eric Weems, Reggie Kelly, Mike Cox, Carlton PowellJohn Abraham is just too old. Biermann is never going to be an every down end. Sanders will be let go with a heavy heart after using him to reduce DeCoud’s bargaining power. Snelling can be a power back elsewhere unless he is willing to sign for the minimum again.Re-Signings (expenditure vs. 2012 cap - $23.4m)Brent Grimes (Deal equivalent to Jonathan Joseph; 5 yrs/48m)Curtis Lofton (Paul Pozluszny; 6 yrs/42m)Harry Douglas (James Jones; 3years/9m)Thomas DeCoud (Melvin Bullitt; 3yrs/7m)Chris Redman (Seneca Wallace; 2 yr/3m)Todd McClure (last yr’s money; 1 yr/1.5m)Vance Walker, Michael Palmer, Antone Smith, Joe Zelenka – Min ContractsGrimes and Lofton are essential in my book. Douglas will be promised an increased role and punt return duties. DeCoud and Redman come relatively cheap. McClure does one more year, but can retire in camp if he is not a starter.Free Agent Signings (cap hit: $11.5m)Cliff Avril, RDE, Detroit Lions (4yrs / 33m)Corey Graham, DB, Chicago Bears (2yrs/2.5m)Avril is 25 and is getting better – only 3 fewer sacks than Abe over the last three years with 3 MORE FF. Graham is one of the best special teams players in the league.Cap Situation: We would be at $124m, which is forecast to be almost exactly at the cap.Draft2nd: David Wilson, RB, Virginia TechOur new running game. Able to make plays out of both single back and I-form sets. Threat in the screen and passing game. Durable. Would also like Lamar Miller if he fell. 10 years younger than Turner.3rd: Coby Fleener, TE, StanfordSolid blocker with a wide catch radius. Would make a good complement to Gonzalez year 1 and then with Palmer.Trade: 2013 3rd Round for a 2012 4th Round4th: Amini Silatolu, OG, Mid-Western StateAggressive run blocker with the anchor to hold up well in pass protection. Potential starter at guard.5th: Markus Zusevics, OT, IowaBlue-collar talent from an O-Line factory. Could be a valuable swing tackle and compete for a job year 2.6th: Mike Martin, DT, MichiganPenetrating DT who can offer additional pass rush to our depth on the DL.6th comp: Terrance Greenaway, RB, BaylorBulldozer for short yardage plays – Snelling replacement.7th: Adrian Hamilton, DE, Prairie ViewOnly other NCAA players with 20+ sacks in a season - Robert Mathis and Chris Gocong. Give him a go at least.UDFA: Joe Halahuni, FB, Oregon StateThe new full back. Looks like a big dude.UDFA: TJ Graham, WR/KR, North Carolina StateTrack star speed out wide who would be compete with Franks to be KRUDFA: Asa Jackson, CB, Cal-PolyNice depth pickup shamelessly stolen from A-Town’s mockDepth ChartQB: Ryan, RedmanRB/FB: Wilson, Ganaway, Rodgers, Smith, HalahuniWR: White, Jones, Douglas, Meier, GrahamTE: Gonzalez, Fleener, PalmerOT: Svitek, Clabo, Valdez, ZusevicsOG/C: Blalock, McClure, Silatolu, Johnson, Hawley, JacksonDE: Avril, Edwards, Sidbury, Matthews, HamiltonDT: Babineaux, Peters, Jerry, Walker, MartinLB: Lofton, Weatherspoon, Nicholas, Adkins, Dent, JamesCB: Grimes, Robinson, Franks, Owens, Walls, JacksonS: DeCoud, Moore, Graham, SchillingerST: Zelenka, Bosher, Bryant2013 Draft OutlookDE (as Spags needs multiple rushers) and LT will be the main two areas we will need to address.Cornerback, safety depth and a backup QB will be mid-round needs.
