;)[QUOTE=NY2FLDWC85;4503377]Can't wait for the start of training camp and preseason in order to see some our Rookies, 2nd and 3rd year players take the field.
Rookies: Quinton Coples, Stephen Hill and Demario Davis are the three rookies that I'm most looking forward to seeing. Can't remember the last time I was this high on 3 rookies.
2nd year: McElroy (Kid looked pretty good during preseason before injury) Ellis, Tevaseu, Ricky Sapp and Bilal Powell are the five 2nd year players that I'm mostly looking forward to. I believe I already know what we have in Wilkerson and Kerley ala a very strong 3-4 DE in Wilkerson and a Taylor-Made player coming out of the slot in Jeremy Kerley.
3rd year: Tim Tebow, Joe McKnight, John Conner, Jeff Cumberland (Was an NFL stand out story during last years preseason before going down due to injury), Vladimir Ducasse (needs a monster TC and preseason) and Marcus Dixon are the six 3rd year players that I'm anxious to see. I already know what we have in Kyle Wilson, a very good nickel back, but our 3rd year unit features a boat load of potential/talent, especially on the offensive side of the ball. Can't wait to see this unit on the field together.
All in all I see 6 defensive players (Couples, Davis, Ellis, MTV, Sapp and Dixon) and 8 offensive players (Hill, McElroy, Powell, Tebow, McKnight, Conner, Cumberland and Vlad) as our young talents that I'm ready to see take the field.
I never understood how fans couldn't get into preseason football. I love it, because it gives me a chance to evaluate our younger talents with my own eyes. My main goal is to always see our team stay healthy, followed by production out of our developing kids.
Antonio Allen, SS, 7th round draft pick out of South Carolina is my sleeper pick. I can't put my finger on it (because they play different Safety position) but he just reminds me of a younger Kerry Rhodes coming out for whatever reason that may be. I do feel that it's an advantage that he's played in a competitive SEC conference on a team that ranked top 15 in the Nation.
