...

2. Who are the top six cornerbacks in OTAs, and how will they perform?

Brent Grimes was one of the three players who really stood out to me on Tuesday. I've consistency admitted how shocked I am about his limited size, but Grimes is an athletic freak based on what I witnessed on day one.

Grimes recovers well and knocked down at least three passes during Tuesday's session. Richard Marshall and Grimes were the first team cornerbacks on Tuesday, and Jimmy Wilson, a safety, continues to work as the starting nickel, which was the role he had last year. ...


4. Where does Jared Odrick line up, and how is he being used?

Odrick is being used as the starting defensive tackle paired with Paul Soliai, and he looked GOOD in that role that has been opened up by Starks' absence. ...

6. Will another tailback push Lamar Miller for the starting spot?

OTAs are very hard to evaluate when it comes to positions that rely on contact. Therefore, it is hard to see which tailback is making respectable runs because nobody is being tackled to the ground. However, I will admit that Marcus Thigpen is more involved in the starter battle than I initially expected.

7. John Jerry reported to OTAs under 340 pounds. Will being in better shape help him hold onto the starting right guard spot? ...

Best confirmation we've seen on JJ's weight... Hope he's not only holding his weight, but stronger too...we'll see...

My only questions would be 1.) Just exactly how much under 340 is he and 2.) Did he put in the work to get stronger along with his weight loss?

This is the list of Guards (according to rosters provided by ESPN.com) listed at over 330lbs: Keith Williams, Ray Dominguez, Michael Jasper, Chris DeGeare, Louis Vasquez, Johnnie Troutman, Mike Iupati, Rokevious Watkins, Antoine McClain, Kelechi Osemele, Larry Warford, Brandon Brooks, Justin Anderson, Robert Griffin, Hayworth Hicks, Edmund Kugbila, Andrew Tiller, and Carl Nicks. Only a couple of those guys are listed above 340.

So, when you add in John Jerry, that makes 19 of the 179 Guards listed (that does not include free agents or players listed as simply OL) over 330lbs, or roughly 10% of the guards in the NFL
