Friday Q&A: Big weekend coming up

1) With the new offensive staff, are there players who were recruited and signed by the old offensive staff that may be moved to different positions (not offense) who could help fill gaps and be contributors?

Chris Coleman: Because of all the question marks surrounding nearly every position on offense, I can’t see anyone getting moved.

Trey Edmunds is one of the few names that jumps out. I don’t think anyone denies that Trey Edmunds could be a very good backer, but he’s needed at running back a lot more. None of the tight ends are going to move. After all, two of them (Duan Perez-Means and Zack McCray) have already been moved from defense to offense.

I’d like for E.L. Smiling to get a shot on defense. At this point, he is behind younger players such as Demitri Knowles, Joshua Stanford, Charley Meyer, Joel Caleb and Kevin Asante at wide receiver. Barring injury, it appears very unlikely that he’ll ever crack the depth chart at wideout. At 6-4, 202, I’d like to see him get a shot at whip. It would be unlikely that he could challenge Ronny Vandyke, but the move worked for Brenden Hill. Plus, it would put Smiling in a better position to potentially contribute on special teams.
