Not much came as a surprise here. I did think because of the reports coming out of camp that Matt Hennessy would be starting. He’s been a little banged up, so it’s possible the team decided to ride with the veteran Carpenter instead of rushing a hobbled rookie out there.

The team does have 3 safeties listed as starters, and it seems Damontae Kazee is going to play a “star” role like we see on some college teams. Hopefully, he’ll be moving around the field like a chess piece. John Cominsky listed as a DT also came as a bit of a surprise to me. I’m excited to see what Mykal Walker, Darqueze Dennard, and Marlon Davidson can do — Dennard is a good nickel, and Walker/Davidson are listed higher than I thought they would be. As good as the offense looks, it’s up to the defense to step up and elevate this team back to the Super Bowl.
