SS is a concern however, I think the biggest hole is at OT, Clarke sucks at OT and Smith is a Guard playing Tackle and doing so very well. Problem is, we have no other decent OT on the roster behind AC. Protecting Luck is key to this team’s success. A weak safety can be schemes to help, a weak OT and well have the cart standing by
It's not all bad lol. The title of the article is "The biggest roster hole for every top NFL playoff contender", so at least they call us a top playoff contender. They give us 57.9% chance to make the playoffs, and a 39.6% chance to win the AFC South.
Here's the snippet.
I do tend to agree with them at Strong Safety. I like Geathers, but I don't see him as a Tier 1 guy. Willis seems to be doing well, but I've also seen a lot of inconsistencies. I don't expect a rook to be a stud out of the gate (given his draft position), but I'm just not sure he's an answer. I'm still scratching my head that we signed Kindred (who is more of a box safety), and we have him competing at free safety.
As discussed in other threads on the topic of what positions Ballard might go after (waiver claims), I think SS is one that will definitely get some looks.
