With Marcus Johson working with the 1st team & Rosenthal with the 2nd team, perhaps Childress has decided who he would like the starting RG to be.

I thought that was penciled in to be Artus Hicks....

Apparently there is a lot of competition for the Nickleback. That's always good to hear.

That's what I thought.. Johnson is going to be Right Tackle, and Hicks was traded in to be the starting Right Guard.

I would like to see Hosack crack the #4 WR spot, become the redzone threat

Yeah, that's what I heard too. I'd be surprised if Johnson wasn't our RT and Childress has basically told Hicks that the RG position is his to lose.

We should have a beastly line!

I'm a bit concerned about the duration of this abcess problem.

Usually with a drain and antibiotics it can take awhile to resolve.

But this appears to be taking a little longer than I would expect.

Anyone else concerned?

Anyone else concerned?I wouldn't be concerned yet.

I thought I heard at the time that he may be held out 'till training camp but that they were hopefull that he may be able to partake in the last of the OTAs.

Hosack is competing with McMullen for the #5 spot on the team

Hosack and McMullen are very similar players. Both are big targets that can smash smaller DB's. It seems natural that these two are battling for the same spot, wherever that is (probably #5).

We need to cut loose Marcus Robinson, there, I said it.

McMullen has proven to be a capable #4 (it doesn't take much).

Then our 5 and 6 will hopefully be Hoag, Hosack, or Nealy.

Looks like it.

Out of all of those I want Davonte Edwards. Just because he OWNED Farve last year!

I really like all of our young DB's we have great depth and as long as these guys keep developing the way they have been we should have an incredible secondary over the next few years

Why are people so down on Marcus, he is a more reliable target than Travis Taylor.
