I hope Spears is the type of do everything D-Lineman that we will want on the field at all times and in any situation.
I hope MB3 comes in and really takes to the offense and gives us a great compliment to Julius. I think a viable backup to Jones may be the most important move of the entire offseason for us to make the playoffs.
A healthy Dan Campbell will be a nice addition to this team.
I hope Morgan thrives in his 3rd WR role.
You pretty much took the words right outta my, um, fingers.
I can't wait to see Fowler in a 3-4 with a year of pro experience and weight room work. Not to mention some serious smacks from his special teams play.
Barber, if he wasn't sharing time at Minnesota, I feel would have been a 2nd rounder. I'm excited to see what he brings. His hands alone should get him on the field quite a lot and he was a very good returner early on at Minnesota.
Dan Campbell returning to form both on and off the field will help the offense big time. I love the way he plays and his attitude.
Spears, I've always thought he was a special player and would grow into a better pro than he could at college due to double and triple teams. He's just very bright and aware on the field, to go along with his outstanding size, power, agility, and hands.
He doesn't need me to root for him, but I'll add I'm very interested in seeing Julius. He had an outstanding 2nd half of the season. How much of a difference did his fresh legs make? Was he really that good? ---because he was freakin' good. He has athletic ability that seems to put him in a unique class of RBs.
Henson, of course. Please be a superstar. Please be a superstar. Please be a superstar.
Roger Cooper sounds a lot like Fowler. I want to see him do really well. Have never seen him play, but the reports make him sounds like a LB who gives his body up every play and a fun character to boot (which was sorely needed on this D).
Jacob Rogers, I'd like to see him really show some talent and toughness, and show signs of being able to force a move of Flozell to RT because Rogers is just too damn good at LT.
Ratliff - I know nothing about him. Hope to see a guy with some ability to take 5-10 snaps a game, with a body to grow into a true NT down the line.
Patrick Crayton - I just like his potential man. He could really be a hit for us. He's just got so much natural ability and great hands.
