Mailbag April 10: What Are Greatest Areas Of Potential Weakness

by Categorized: Uncategorized Tagged: , Date:


Q: Hi, Dez. From what you have seen to date, what are the areas of greatest potential risk for weakness? Would you agree: O-line, DE depth, and kicking? RST, Bolton

A: Not sure I’d put it quite the way you did but I think they have DE depth RST. I also think about the starters and the level in which they play, Jesse Joseph and Trevardo Williams. Those guys have to play at high level now so the guys behind them can raise their games so there’s no dropoff when they come in the game. Same thing at defensive tackle. I think the offensive line will be allright they just have to get used to their new responsibilities. I don’t think kicking will be a weakness at all. The potential weakness is the depth at cornerback and defensive tackle because there just isn’t a lot of experience there. ¬†This is one of the reasons the spring season is so big.
