My hope here is that Roy Williams will return to form & Pat Watkins has gained solid weight, and that the SS position will be one of the strengths of the team. Secondary coach Dave Campo stated that he has dedicated himself to getting RW back to the confident hitting machine that we grew to love. Watkins has all of the athletism and speed you need for the position & more, and can jump through the building. This is an important year for both players. Having said that, the worse case scenario could still happen. If just one of the aforementioned players doesn't live up to expectations, the SS position will continue to be a weakness, with thin depth. That is why I look for the team to go to SS in the 1st rd. of the 2009 draft. The safety position is probably the most critical one on the defense. They are the first players a QB looks for to analize the defense. All you have to do is look at the teams that have All-Pros at that position to see how vital it is. The guy I have had my eye on lately is Taylor Mays, FS, S. Cal. Talk about size-speed ration, this guy has it all. At 6-3, 225 lbs., he runs an unbelievable 4.25 in the 40! I know there are several safeties being talked about in next yrs' draft, but this dude leaps out at ya. What I found amazing is a recent Mock Draft that didn't even have him going in the 1st rd. Sounds good to me. If he is there at the #32 spot, we have to take him. By the time the draft rolls around, we'll probably have to use our extra 3rd & 4th to move up to get him. I would do it in a heartbeat. Everyone talks about our WR position, but I think by Spring '09, we'll have seen enough from Isaiah Stanback, Sam Hurd, Miles Austin, and of course, Patrick Crayton, that WR will be a position we can afford to look at in the 2nd rd.
