I would be interested in some discussion of the secondary and related issues here. To get right to the point, I am assuming that Spencer, Goldson and Clements are all starters in both base and nickle packages at corner, ("free") saftey and corner respectively. I am assuming that people feel pretty solid with that, however, any discussion, including expectations, concerns or nuances, is welcome.
There is perhaps more uncertainty regarding the other safety position and the nickle back? Who would people like, or expect, to see there? What is our confidence level with that?
I am assuming the the nickle defense will include McDonald and Smith on the inside, 2 outside lb's at the line (2 of Brooks, Haralson, Lawson and LaBoy?, (does that make sense? Am I including too many? or leaving anyone out?)), then Willis and X at linebacker, and 5 DB's. Who will play with Willis at "LB"? (I think that is often a safety, though i suppose then it could be called a dime.) Who will/should be the 5 DB's? How will the nickle and dime packages vary?
To what degree do you think Mays will be able to contribute as the season progresses, and in what role?
Are there other questions/topics I have left out which are related to the secondary?
