    Lot's of DL in there.

    I think at least two or three of the Off Linemen make the final 53 for depth. I like Farrell (both OT) and Golic (C and OG) because both can play multiple positions. If I was Golic I'd be practicing long snapping...alot!

    Madsen is a knucklehead that didn't care about his grades and missed two bowl games during his career at WVU for it. Doubt he will put in the study time to be a backup. JD woods has good hands and was the third WR option in WVU offense. He can produce decent numbers and could e a serviceable backup. Not a star though, at this point.

    Doesn't seem to be able to break tackles. Guys get a hand on him and he is going down. Does seem to have excellent hands though.

    I've read that Embernate was rated by some as a fourth or fifth round prospect, but that there may be some undisclosed injury. Below is a highlight - he pulls quite a bit, and you'll see that he has a nasty streak. He keeps looking for somebody to hit until the whistle blows.

    I would say that is an accurate assessment. He would be a possession WR here.

    Why? Don't know anything about him, never heard of him until we signed him.
