Bubble Watch

Recommended Posts

I still miss March Madness, particularly with the Jayhawks positioned for a title shot. So, let's borrow a hoops term for training camp--the Bubble Watch. Who are the last three in and the first three out?

Here is an article to kick it off. Their first three out are Ricky Seals-Jones, Darryl Williams, Breeland Speaks. The last three in are Matt Moore, De'Andre Washington and Derrel Lovett. With Damien Williams gone, I would keep Jones, even though he is limited as anything but a receiver.

Who are your bubble players? Nick Keizer, Do'D, Armani Watts, Gehrig Deiter? Darryl Wiliams vs Nick Alligretti is a potential battle to watch. I think one will be in and one will be out. I don't think both Tedric Thompson and Watts make the team. Breeland Speaks vs Taco Charlton. And so on.

(2)QB:  Pretty locked down.  Mahomes / Henne.  I’m guessing both Moore and Ta-amu get PS.

(5)RB:  Maybe a battle with Dar. Williams and McGuire for 4th spot.  McGuire can go back on the PS. Sherman back for FB.

(5)WR:  No real sleepers imo, top 5 are locked in.  Not sure we’ll keep anymore.  Lipscomb and Fortson are nice PS candidates.

(3)TE: Keizer might sneak in for Yelder, but I see him back on the PS.  Really like Kelce and Seals-Jones up top.

(10)OL: A lot of comp here.  I have us keeping 10 actually.   Fisher, Osemele, Reiter, Remmers, Schwartz, Niang, Wylie, Williams, Allegretti, Rankin.    Durant is a nice PS guy. 

(5)DE: Clark, Okafor, Kpassagnon are locks imo.  Important thing to remember is Speaks will start the season the Susp list.   T.Charlon/M.Danna/D. Harris/T.Ward gunning for 2 spots for at least 4 games.  I like Taco and Danna, with Ward sliding to the PS.

(4)DT:  Probably the easiest group to project, a the big 4 are back. 


(6)LB:  No shockers for me in this group.  Hitchens, Wilson, Niemann, O’Daniel, Gay, Harris.  Excited to see if Gay and Harris add some speed to this unit.

(6)CB: Little hard time predict with Breeland susp.  I still think we run with 6 early.  Ward, Fenton, Hamilton and Snead are locks imo.  Not sure of Keyes injury status.  I’m rolling with Alex Brown and Lavert Hill to make the roster early. 
 

(4)S: Don’t see a change here,  the same 4 are back.  I think Tedric Thompson is PS eligible under the new rules.. maybe just wanted a more seasoned player available in case of an injury. 
 

3(ST):  Easy to pick these 3

 

Last 3 in:  Wylie, L. Hill, D. Yelder

First 3 out: D. Harris, K. Lipscomb, Y. Durant

It is near certain we will keep six WR, because the team has been clear they want a new PR. 

I give Darius Harris an edge over Do'D. In and not last three.

Wylie out if Rankin is back up to speed. 

At safety it seems T Thompson vs Watt. Winner stay and loser goes. The possible surprise here is Clemons

Similar situation with Allegretti vs Chris Williams.

Very possible we keep 6 WR,  Lipscomb is really the only one I see being able to take PR duties.  Should fairly easy to put him a PS until they Interior OL spots are ironed out.   With the shortened preseason I could see them keeping them all,  Lipscomb/any PR can be brought up once that’s settled.

Not opposed either way with DOD,  not much at LB and don’t see us keeping less then 5.  

Very okay with Wylie out, although he has performed better at RG.  Would be nice to keep Remmers as a backup at multiple spots.

There have been some developments. Martinas Rankin and Juan Thornhill start camp as PUP,  possibly making two slots available into the season. BoPete Keyes is on the non-football injury list.

Mitchell Schwartz said some nice things about Rankin, which makes me think he has a real shot at starting when he gets healthy. Schwartz also made a point of the cross training multiple positions. He says there is a nice deep group and that he isn't worried about finding five good players.

Going out on a limb, this is my starting OL: Fischer-Osemele-Reiter-Rankin-Schwartz. Remmer may start the season at RG, but I think his value is as versatile backup. 

On the PR and KR depth chart, put the names Justice Shelton-Mosley and Maurice Ffrench. Just sayin'. These two, Lipscomb and 4.2 burner Baccellia are the only UDFA WR left.
