How do we round out this class? Obviously another OL and DT is in the works with Hobbi and Mickey, but after that what are we looking at? I have no idea how many spots we have left? DE, LB, WR, and TE?
Take a look at HiO's and FLAS's posts that are stickied at the top. They monitor that every year and give their best guesses.How do we round out this class?

Nobody in the history of football has ever been too fast to play linebacker or safety. Better suited for another position, perhaps, but if a guy otherwise has the skill set to play linebacker (size, tackling ability, toughness) there is no amount of speed that would make him unsuitable for the position. Same with safety.TE of the future? Bubba Starling. Nothing like a 6-6 4.3 second tight end to give defensive coordinators nightmares. to tall for a corner or safety and to fast for a linebacker or a safety
I have Baptiste and Marsh both counting against the 2010 class. Marsh was a probable greyshirt, but with Heard not qualifying out of the chute, there was room.We currently have 16 recruits. However, don't forget that Marsh greyshirted and counts towards this class and Baptiste was basically an add-on to last year. That gives us realistically 18 recruits this year. Don't forget that Heard still has not qualified as well.
I posted this about a week ago that we could use at least 1 DE, and I would even take 2.IMHO, the biggest need at this point is 1 or 2 quality DE's. Then a TE followed by another LB. The rest of the spots may go to specific people instead of by position. Big Red can be very selective with the remaining slots.
