Since it's slow, what player do you think might come out of nowhere to contribute?

Not a bold prediction, but more of a hope based on potential.

A couple of years back my signing day hopes for exceeding star ratings, based on their athleticism I had two names. Beckwith and Whitehead were my upside guys.

Beckwith is gone, and I hope he does not NOW explode onto the scene at KY, but I really wanted the hometown spurned story to produce with Whitehead. I guess the big key for him was his SPARQQ scores. He was the highest rated ILB that year, and even though he made it plain he wanted to play RB I had hopes that would translate on the other side of the ball as a big back. He arrived with injuries and added one I think after arrival. We could definitely use a masher at RB for short yardage, so it is now make or break time for him I think. I will hope he is fully healthy and look forward to some positive reports in camp over the next few weeks. Hate to go 0 for 2.

Who you got?

2 receivers, Hyatt and the Walker kid from Brentwood. Mitchell at linebacker hopefully.

I think two names come to mind for me. Juwan Mitchell and Bryson Eason. I think Eason could have a solid year wherever they decide to play him on the line (I think SDE). I think Mitchell jumps into a starting role next to Banks and does pretty well.

I think one of our WRs will get it figured out outside is Hyatt and Tillman. Ton of talent, but one of Merrill, Holiday, Calloway, or Keyton is due for a solid year.

I meant to add Holiday too. I think Holiday can be a difference make. Looks like he’s the KR and PR specialist.

Calloway will end up being a Doc Holiday type assassin, he's going to Johnny Ringo opposing CBs. While everybody has their posse after Tillman and Hyatt, Calloway will "temple" them.

We have enough WR with potential I hope we can send in some fresh speedy blood at extended dead balls and pick up with the pace game taking advantage of the DB's who are not as fresh. That would even help our slot guys or backs coming out of the backfield having more open space.
