    Wilson impressive

    Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is confident in Kion Wilson's ability to replace the injured Larry Foote at inside linebacker but said that rookie Vince Williams will see some time mostly on special teams.

    I've been pleased with those two young guys and the way they've played throughout the preseason, LeBeau said.

    Interesting. I was hoping that maybe Worilds would replace Foote and Jones becomes full time starter at ROLB.

    What indication has Worilds given that he would be any good at ILB? I'd rather see Wilson or the Future (V. Williams)
    Here comes the BOOM!

    Worilds was a DE in college and has never played ILB. Not a good idea to try to train him during the season.

    It's sad that, Spence would've been primed to fill this spot (even though he's probably not ideally the Buck), if not for his unfortunate injury.

    I went back to Kion's draft write-up, and he was considered a tough, team-oriented, blue-collar guy, lacking athletic ability. His college coach called him the toughest player he's ever coached.

    I think Kion's probably holding down the fort for Williams or Spence to eventually take over. I was really excited about Spence since we drafted him andam even more excited about the potential for Williams now. If Spence didn't get hurt, I don't think Williams would have ever got a chance. But now that I've seen Williams this preseason, I can't believe how far he dropped in the draft. He's gonna be a stud.

    I noticed how well he was playing in the preseason and purposely went to the roster page when they cut to 53 players to see if he had made the team!
