(14) Frank Clark, DL – An aggressive placement for sure, considering he has played zero regular season NFL snaps. His combination of length, incredible strength and relentlessness in practice and in preseason action is extremely encouraging, to say the least.  Has a chance to be a truly special player if he decides to play life by the rules.

(13) Russell Okung, OT – When healthy, the soon-to-be UFA is a bedrock on an otherwise loose-footed offensive line and should be a priority re-signing, but

(12) Doug Baldwin, WR – Makes a living by cutting on a dime, creating separation, being a leader in the locker room, and educating fools. He excels at all four.

(11) Brandon Mebane, DT – An irresistible force with a belly roll. Once again, a great player with high character who is willing to pass on his vast knowledge to inexperienced linemates.  Successful run defense begins with his ability to occupy blockers and gum up the middle of the line of scrimmage.

(10) Cliff Avril, LEO – Should have been named the MVP of SB48. Ruthlessly efficient, consistent pass rusher from the very important LEO position in Carroll’s defense and a heck of a person, too.

Next: 9-5
