    What true Freshmen see the field this year?

    The two I feel good about

    Antonio Messick
    Harrison Butker

    Then I think we will see a DB play on special teams...

    I'm going to guess PJ Davis

    So my three are

    PJ Davis
    Messick
    Butker

    The others I considered were Chris Griffin, John Marvin and Ricky Jeune.

    PJ Davis is certainly ready to play, so I think that's pretty reasonable.

    Obviously, Butker better see some time. I think we will need both Jeune and Messick at some point this season, unfortunately.

    My thoughts are Butker, Messick. Jeune and Davis with Commissiong late in the season as my long shot.

    Eric, what position does Ty Griffin wind up?

    IMO. Ty griffin will end up an Aback or an emergency DB like lasky was. Talked to some people on the team who said he was very quick.
    My guesses are:
    Butker
    Marvin (ST)
    Messick
    PJ Davis (ST)
    Commisong

    Butker is a lock he's going to kick for us. Messick and Juene are studs they will play a good bit.

    I think Messick is the only one that'll play besides some guys on ST. Jeune could beat Messick out for that job too, I think only one will play as long as we stay healthy and there is production from the position. Butker will kick the ball off and take Field Goals. Before the season starts we need to do an over/under thread on number of returned kickoffs this season. I'd be willing to bet we won't let any of our big opponents return the ball.

    I will say I hope and pray Butker is what we hope he is and then some. If he is then I think having a solid go to at kicker will improve the team dynamic drastically. With that said, my list would be...

    Butker
    PJ Davis ST and/or John Marvin ST
    Messick WR and/or Jeune WR
    and wait for it.... Custis. Yep I know its a long shot but....

    BUTKER for sure. After that, from what I have seen, the ones that look college football ready body-wise, are MESSICK, DAVIS, ROBBINS. Robbins plays a crowded position so we shall see. I would have said Jeune before recently but Messick looks like a tailor made receiver for our offense. CUSTIS looks good too but plays a crowded position for this year. Commissiong could play because of necessity but hope it doesn't come to that.

    Messick looks the part. Jeune may as well.

    Antonio Messick is a guy that is suddenly getting a lot of talk. I haven't gotten a lot of specifics about how he is doing other than he looks the part. Clearly he's doing well because Eric predicts him to play. What's the story here? Is he dominating the 7 on 7? This would be a great story if he does play. Not a very highly recruited guy from a high school that struggled last year.

    Butkter is a lock to play. I expect one of the WR to play and I'll go with Chris Griffin - he just looks the part to me - supposedly has a mean streak!

    I've predicted Messick to play forever...I've always liked him a lot. He's very physical and can block. He also catches with his hands and not his body.

    I think we are okay at DT...Kallon, Gamble, Gotsis, Kitchens, Cummings, etc.

    Could be a A back or CB.

    I see him being similar to DT. His videos show him needing to improve route running and not having the speed. DT worked his butt off to get faster and that helped him greatly. Messick has clearly been working on quick feet and improving speed. He looks the part now.

    I doubt Chris Griffin will play this year, that position is full and he still light in the bridges ..

    I agree with this opinion, but I think the expression you were looking for is "light in the britches"

    OT is thinner than you may think

    We have Bailey, Beno and Chamberlain.

    Roberts is listed as a T but is better at G.

    In an emergencey situation Jackson would move to T.

    Bailey has been unable to stay healthy and if Finch goes down then Beno will move to C...Also remember that Griffin played in a offense familiar to ours and has almost the same terminology. I don't expect him to play but you can't rule him out yet in my mind.

    Chase may be better at guard, I'm guessing he'd still be a better tackle than a true freshman. I'd also think that having Alford play center would to keep Beno at tackle would be preferable to playing a true freshman. Although who knows? I do believe that Chris was one of the most underrated players in our class (probably because of size). His tape and reputation in Florida was huge.
