Who Is Gone:
I always thought Huffman was a good guy who played hard. He may not have been the most physically gifted player, but he certainly made the effort. Once again, I think Huffman is replaceable on the football field, which I hope doesn't diminish what he meant to this team overall.

I really like the depth here. There's a good mix of talent and although I'm probably getting ahead of myself, I'm expecting great things from Jamar Wall. I think he has a chance to be a great player. I also like the fact that there's some serious depth here, unfortunately, the depth only goes through 2009 and like to think that defensive back will be a priority next year. Don't forget about Laron Moore. Although he spent last year redshirted, I think he will force himself on the field.

It's very thin after 2009 and as thin as it is for the cornerbacks, it's even more thin for the safeties. It should be noted that more than likely, Taylor Charbonnet will play safety, but he's a number of years away from making a difference. This is an incredibly deep and diverse group of players and my hope is that if someone isn't up to par in any particular game that Setencich has no issue with replacing said player with one of the more than capable backups.
I'm very much looking forward to 2007 and 2008 with this group of defensive backs. I think that they will be able to provide some continuity to a very uncertain defensive situation as a whole. This will have to be the group of kids that leads this team.
