Interesting comparing these guys' notes from camp.

They seem to agree that Carey Davis is a lock  angry4 , but disagree on Keiwan Ratliffe and Keenan Lewis.  Wex seems to think Ratliffe is roadkill and Lewis is coming around; Carson's a 180 from that.  I'll believe Wex on this one.  Wex and most of the local beats also think Madison's a lock.  Incidentally, Madison's father just died, so he's excused indefinitely.  Very good STer, OK as CB depth.

Bouchette and Carson, BTW, are both saying Shea may move to safety.  Umm, haven't we heard that floated for years?  Also hearing less than positive remarks about Mundy, and my dark horse for FS, Roy Lewis, looks like he's on the wrong side of the bubble right now.

Wallace, by all accounts, is gonna turn some fucking heads, sooner than later.

It might be a dumb thing to say, but I just liked the way that Wallace looked the other night when he was in there.  Not that he did anything overly spectacular, other than what he was supposed to do, but he just looked like he was supposed to be there, like he belonged.  His demeanor just generally gave me the impression that he is confident and expects to be a player.  Kind of the "Act like you've been there before" approach.  I didn't watch every minute of the game, so I'm basing that on the parts that I saw when he was in.

I don't see any possible way that two special teamers/depth guys in Madison and Ratliff beat out a 3rd round draft pick (Lewis).

Yeah, you figure they'll give the investment some time to produce.  Now a 6th or 7th rounder would be different. They won't cut Lewis unless they determine that the guy is a complete bust and has absolutely no future in the NFL.

Actually, from what I saw, Lewis is a better ST player than they are. And he's definitely better in coverage.

Agreed, Preach.  He just looks the part.
