[News] Early Thinking On Some Roster Battles To Watch

Recommended Posts

As long as it’s on the practice squad...I’m fine with that. Keeping guys on the 53 that we have no intent on playing because they aren’t even at backup level yet hurts us. Or store them on IR but then they can’t even practice.

It was a pretty obvious draft setup for us this year all along. Three picks in our top 35(if we had gone BPA the whole way). And then day three sleepers. 

So where are you keeping this guy while you do all this coaching and training to get him up to backup status?

7 players can be active, but not dress on game day. If he makes it that far. There's a good bit of time for him to be coached up even before TC starts.

As far as the Miller pick and since I know ZIP about the PSU coaching staff,it IS possible with different techinques and strength training he will be come much better.I'm not gonna say he will be a star,but if you see kinda how I would pick players,he qualifies.if we can take him from Average to above average we should at least have a solid BU player

Nowhere near average. But if we can take him from a one trick pony to a two or three trick pony then maybe you can develop him into a backup. His thing is a speed rush outside pass rushing. Do you really think he comes out and sees the field on a crucial third down only for us? And even his one thing is based on the Olineman setting wrong and screwing up for him to succeed. Which in college happens. In the NFL...

I’m just telling you I don’t see him moving ahead of Sweat(last year’s fourth round DE) or even Ostman. So count the DE and tell me how many you can keep on the 53.

 And yes that’s exactly what I’m afraid of: him being on the 53 with no intent on suiting up for a game. Mailata I understood. Miller I’m not.

Isn't that what Schwartz's DL is all about? A half wide - 9, that gets after the QB, outside rush. You know Fletch is gonna be out there on 3rd down getting doubled. Where Miller needs the most improvement is against the run. Not saying he doesn't have to improve his pass rush skills, but there's ample time for him to show improvement. Again, he doesn't have to dress on game day and still be active without hurting the roster. Every season multiple players (a few) are on the inactive list.

Let’s place the bets now then. I’ll give you Miller and I get Hall. We’ll let the rest of the Bored vote on who had the better preseason.

If he’s going to be unblocked Miller might be your guy. Much of his highlights he was unblocked.

Maybe with his speed a position change? SInce he has that ONE attribute,maybe a BU MLB? on a 3 LB set?

Yes, he could move to OLB and we could use him one play a game to blitz.

Can you rush the QB from the LB spot? I didn't know that lol. Maybe Miller can't tackle either. HA-HA
