I really like #1. I believe Dalton has lost weight already. He is putting in the work and really wants this. Edmond is only going through the motions. If he doesn't want it, then give Dalton the shot!
None of what you posted surprises me except your prediction with Santos. After watching him last fall I actually thought that taking him was a mistake. He seemed to only be able to play downhill. When forced to move laterally he over ran gaps and allowed too many cut back lanes. I also thought that his inability to change direction made him a liability in the passing game.
I have read on the board that he has been hard at work trying to better himself (lighter and quicker). I think Edmonds is the more talented player and that he will win out in the end.
Not picking nits here, but exactly how does one improve their instincts being that instincts are mostly thought of as an innate ability, not something that can be developed over time?
Maybe it's just me but I see 6 as a huge positive because, at least for me, that would mean that Cottrell plays like a young Jeffcoat (minus injuries of course) because I think Shiro is going to explode and be like a young Rak.
Jury is out on Ridge, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was better than Brown. I've said it before but if he had been in the 2013 class (since he turned 18 in December) he'd be at least a five star and right up at the top. Guys that athletic at 300 pounds are so rare. IMO he very well could be a Watt starter package.
If Santos does win the Mike battle, Edmonds needs a position move to DE. Too much athletic talent and straight ahead big man speed to not be used.
