    If Leggett can stay healthy then he will be a stud. You don't put numbers up in the Georgia High School Playoffs like he did without being a stud.

    One position I'm confused about is that 5th DB. Seems like there were great reports about Noble and also great reports about Demond Smith. Aren't they both pretty much battling for that 5th DB spot? And, then you've got Milton and Griffin battling for the CB spot. And, then throw in the PJ Davis 3rd LB position. And, the Austin twins showing out at DB as well and looking to avoid the redshirts. We've got more good players in the back 7 than we've got positions. Can you or anyone else clear up the pecking order on the back 7? What percent of the time do you think we'll be in the 4-3 (with Davis) vs the 4-2-5 (with Noble or Demond)? Who will be the 6th DB off the bench in dime situations?

    There was a lot of talk before camp about tyler marcordes.

    Thoughts on whether he progressed as hoped?

    I'd feel a little better if I saw Justin Thomas' name in there someplace.

    A lot of that won't be known unitl the season starts and will still be getting sorted out then...as you said we have a bunch of bodies back there...good competition.

    Smith and Noble have both played well so far...Can't predict what defense we will be in, just depends on what we are matching up against really.

    This is just based on camp performance...Justin played really well last scrimmage...but he was out a few days and there really isn't a spot for him on the list above..I am not worried about him, confident hes going to be good.

    it should make you feel better knowing that he had a great camp and actually separated himself more from TB than after spring.

    I'm really hoping the last scrimmage was not an annomaly, we can use some high-probability 3rd down pass opportunities.

    He was really good in the spring game. Lets hope he makes an impact when he is back to full health!

    Here's to hoping Smelter can improve upon last year. His draft stock could skyrocket if he does.
