Step Forward DT: I feel like Gotsis will continue to improve here, and even though the depth is unproven, I think we have some athletic guys that can step up alongside the Aussie. ILB: Hunt-Days seemed to struggle when most thought he would take a leap. I'm banking on improvement here, and Harrell's hot on his heels. CB: I know DJ White took some flack this season, but I was impressed with him. Sammy Watkins made a lot of people look bad, and I thought White was almost always in good position to make plays. If he works on awareness when the ball is in the air, he could be a very solid starter for 3 more years. I'm also putting a lot of stock in what Eric and others say about Step Durham. Step Back DE: Until I see otherwise, I think its gonna be hard to replace JA's production over the second half of the season. S: I LOVE our young DBs with their speed and athleticism. But I don't see anybody that can replace Jemea just yet. Plus, I'm not sold that IJ will come in and reclaim his starting spot. I want to be proven wrong on this position. ???? OLB: I will miss Watts. He was so versatile. But I love Nealy, too. The other spot will tell the truth here. BONUS BIG STEP FORWARD STs: An experienced Butker and a huge shot in the arm with the addition of Golden and possibly Autry to the return game. Plus, I think our athletic DBs are sometimes most valuable on STs with their reckless abandon. I love seeing Milton, Noble, Griffin flying down the field on coverage units.
