    If Cullen Jenkins can be as effective as Cory Williams rushing from the inside, we're going to win a lot of games in '08. Our D was #6 last year and it was a very young D. I think most positions will naturally improve, and this one is an important one.

    Here is why I don't think Jenkins will be as effective inside as Williams, Cory learned how to use his leverage and length inside in pass rushing situations, Jenkins is more compact. Williams struggled when olineman got inside and got their hands on his body.. turning that leverage against him at times. My opinion is that Jenkins is a good run stuffing dlineman whom will only be average to above average in the pass rush.

    My personal opinion is Williams is going to explode in the 3-4 scheme because he will be able to play a little more outside and utilize that length and slashing ability. I truly think he his better suited for the 3-4 vs the 4-3.

    Now back to point on Jenkins, wether he was effected by the nagging injuries or not, he needs to play with the sudden burst off the snap that he had last preseason. But tackles are going to catch up with the burst, he needs to work on a couple of pass rushing techniques to throw into the mix. IMO.

    This is a fun thread. There are so many possible answers. Here's a different one: Korey Hall, the fullback. He spent his rookie year learning the position, and got better toward the end of the season. I look for him to continue to improve his blocking and also to become more involved in the passing game. He could be a good weapon for Aaron Rodgers a few times per game, like William Henderson used to do.

    I also think Korey Hall with a good rookie year under his belt will pick it up a notch.
