Right Central Station

You all know I like to keep the center back ranks tight and that I like big game experience, so Gonzo was an easy right-side starter pick for 2018. After that, it gets tight and tricky, and I could have easily jumbled two-through-four in any order. Laugh at Parkhurst if you wish, but he has loads of versatility, can play the smooth criminal role here and there often is one or two older guys who finally make the grade (think Davis and Beckerman this year, DeMerit in 2010, Conrad in 2006 and so on).

Omar Gonzalez
Will Packwood

Shane O'Neill
Matt Hedges
Michael Parkhurst


Also being monitored: Walker Zimmerman






- Greg Seltzer

I'm just bursting with anticipation on who's getting the start at LCB: B or B...

I'm not sure where Amobi Okugo falls in the position discussion but where ever it is he deserves to be in the conversation.

Greg Seltzer said...

He will appear later. :)

What do you think of Edu as a CB, Greg?

Greg Seltzer said...

Not interested.

That's what she said.

Left side CB is going to be interesting. Oddly enough, we may be stacked there.

Greg Seltzer said...

Yeah, the 2018 depth there is probably going to be obnoxious.

Whoo. Shane O'Neill is learning some tough lessons right now. Hope he grows into it.

Greg Seltzer said...

All young defenders go through these lessons.

Tom said...

Indeed. Just got a few hard ones these last couple of games ;)
