    So of our new signee's (so far) who sees the most game action in their 1st year?

    QB Apsay
    DL Bennion
    DL Franke
    LB Gamboa
    LB Hasselbach
    TE Jones
    OL Kaiser
    TE Keeney
    ATH Lee
    DL Lopez
    DL Mathewes
    OL Miller
    S Sanchez
    DL Shaver
    LS Smith
    WR Walker
    LB Watanabe
    DB White
    DB Witherspoon
    WR Fields
    OL Weifels
    ATH MacIntyre

    I think Fields, Mathewes, Hasselbach, and Watanabe see significant playing time right out of the gate. With Keeney jumping in pretty quick as well.

    MacIntyre obviously. I've got him penciled in at QB. Seriously though, Weifels.

    Based on the needs and depth chart I'll guess:


    TE Keeney
    LS Smith
    WR Walker
    LB Watanabe
    DB Witherspoon
    WR Fields
    OL Weifels

    Probably, I would think Witherspoon & Weifels have the best chance at a lot of playing time. Smith will step right into the longsnapping role.

    I agree...Mac seemed to think quite a few will help us right away. He knows speed is lacking right now and they brought in some size and speed.

    Lee - He is such a special talent, I don't know how you can keep him off of the field. I'm most excited about what he can do. He will play all over and make plays for CU
    Keeney - Watching Mac's presser you can tell he expects big things for this guy. It will probably take time for him to get the blocking down, but see him used a lot on passing situations.
    Matthews - He is number 2 right behind Lee in my mind. This guy could be our answer to a rush end. I see him coming in and competing on day one.
    Fields/Walker - One of these two is going to play right away at the WR position (maybe both). They both have great speed. Should be an interesting fall camp with the WR position.

    Now saying all that we will probably have 3-4 guys contribute that none of us expected.

    Mathewes, Witherspoon, Weifels, Fields, Smith, Lee.

    That being said I am most excited about Donovan Lee, Dylan Keeney, and Grant Watanabe. I really hope this staff can get the most out of Lee. He is an astronaut, just get him the ball in space and watch him go to work. They need to use him like Percy Harvin, returning kicks, end arounds, tailback, slot receiver, in motion all over the field to keep the defense guessing.

    Keeney looks like a real matchup nightmare. Runs like a gazelle, great hands, and he knows how to use his large frame when going up to snatch the ball at the highest point. A TE that long with speed and hands should be a QBs best friend, especially around the redzone or on third down.

    Watanabe looks like a real thumper. Nothing like having someone in the middle that will make you regret holding the ball.

    More specifically, Keeney.

    Hasselbach and White. Mac was gushing about both of them at the luncheon. We do have some depth at safety, but if White is as good as Mac says, then he will find his way on the field. Also, we are in desperate need of pass rushers and i think Hasselbach really could see himself playing some passing down snaps.
