Collins WILL be starting next year. Chavis has groomed him specifically for this season. He will have a breakout season and will have a 3rd round grade after the season and could possibly go pro. He is more fluid and flexible than Simon was, and is extremely physical and rangy with great ball skills.
Everyone is excited about White, and for good reason. Kid is a stud. But, its extremely hard to come in as a fresh and start. And not just start, but take Collins spot who looked really good towards the back end of the season. Mills started because TM got the boot. White or Mills will be the NB and the other will be the CB opposite of Collins.
We have a trend of how we use CBs. We have 1 big, physical, rangy CB out there paired with a smaller ballhawking CB. Weve done this for quite a few years. Collins will be that big book end CB. Mills will be the other. When we go NB, Mills or White will be the NB. I cant remember the last season our 2 starting CBs were under 6'0.
RR is a great looking prospect with unreal potential. But, is light and hasnt reported yet. Redshirt.
Eugene was our best blitzing DB last year and we all know how much Chavis loves to send the CB. He will be the dime back and will take on the Ron Brooks role.
