2019 Rookie Talk

We'll play it super safe with them. Just as we did with Hayden and Mark last year at this time.

As they should. We really, really don't want young players missing their first season or two because of prolonged injuries. It's tough to overcome for a lot of guys when that happens.

Yea, get ready for the "Soft Tissue" barrage. Last year the team played it super safe with all injuries. In part due to playing in the HOF game, but also because of so many players being ravaged in recent years. It seemed to work well with limited guys falling out onto IR in 2018.

Especially with the Rookies, you just want them to continue to assimilate and grasp the pro game at this point. We aren't looking for any superheroes during OTAs.

We slow cooked Mark Andrews super hard last year, to the point all the dumb fans were already screaming "bust". It payed off though. He didn't pick up anything serious, and later emerged when Hayden did fall out.

The more I look into him the more I'm excited about Justice Hill. Love the fact that he he's coming from that Big XII spread offense world and knows how to run out of the shotgun. I could see him and Lamar forming a devastating read-option combo, and really use his speed to pop off against defenses tired from chasing Lamar and absorbing the physicality Ingram and Gus offer.

If we're gonna have a guy in the OROY hunt I think it's gonna be him as a Kamara-lite, particularly since we're probably gonna bring Hollywood along a little slowly coming off of injury.

You gotta imagine we see very little of everyone sans Hollywood, Mcsorely, and possibly Ferg. I just know we're gonna find ways to work that dual Qb confusion into our regular offense and Lamar is gonna throw some stupid bombs on people. Ferg should be in rotation if Williams doesnt show out but I feel we all know he will.

The runningback competition will be quite interesting as those guys have to compete with the WR/TE group about an extra spot. Dixon could be the odd man out due to previous injuries and suspensions, but if he lost the bad weight he carried last season, he could be even more explosive and our RB core would be quite deep.

Hills amount of snap counts would most likely be influenced by his ability to catch the ball.

With Jackson at the helm I’m excited what Brown and Boykin can do I think Jackson will improve as a passer maybe not by leaps and bounds but he will also throw it to everyone in my opinion giving people in opportunity to show what they can do
