who does everyone see as our starting Defensive backfield next year. What do you see Vinnie's role as being. How do you keep Ha-Ha and LC off the field? Do you see any of the new recruits breaking into maybe a nickel or dime. Maybe special teams.
Vinnie has a role that is versatile. He is not a good coverage guy..we all know that. HOWEVER he has the ability to stop the run and blitz the QB as we saw all last year. He puts constant pressure on the line, and people have to realize he is a LB by nature, and is designed to make tackles at the point of attack. He is very good in zone though, and has the knowledge and physical ability to cover anyone just not 1on1. As we have seen towards the latter part of the year, Vinnie was not a clear sign that he was going to blitz, but offenses cant pick on him every time because of how we can use others to blitz or drop back in coverage. This is why IMO HaHa was the key part to the secondary, as he gave us the versatility to blitz or drop Vinnie back while HaHa and Dee would take WRs out of the play and/or blitz. This is not something we had in 2010, as the secondary did not allow us to blitz because of the one-on-one chances downfield vs. a FRESHMAN in Milliner.
Boundary CB 1-Deion Belue
Boundary CB 2 in base/STAR in nickle-Geno Smith
Boundary CB 3-John Fulton/Eddie Jackson/Bradley Sylve(in order...most to least likely)
Money-Jarrick Williams/Vinnie Sunseri

I agree with you on Vinnie, he is too good to leave out of situations. That said its going to be tough to keep LC out as an every-down player. I was wondering if Jia Miller plays a role. He for sure has the smarts and the size.
