King, Fenton, and Lammons will handle the Corner spots again. Williams, Nixon, and Chalmers will all be in the rotation somewhere.

I expect Smith, Dickerson, Montac, and Wilder to hold down the Safety spots. Its possible Lammons and Nixon play some there too and I wouldn't rule out Charleston getting some burn.

Going to disagree with you CoverTwo. I don't think he starts this year as I think our starters are fine, especially with another offseason. However, I believe he is our future at CB. This year he will be in the nickel package. He was highly recruited for a reason. Plenty of short CBs in the NFL.

I do think he helps special teams immediately but if you think he was recruited just to return kicks and punts I believe you are sorely mistaken.

JM has a 40+ inch vertical. His height should not be a problem if he is in the correct position to make the play

Default Re: Who starts at cornerback?

Until someone proves they are better than Lammons, why would anyone start over him? He has improved every year he's been on campus, and was probably the 2nd or 3rd best player on on our D. I don't see him moving to safety (too small), also he's the EXACT SAME hight as JW why are people questioning him bc of his HT? Big Cbs are new trend, most NFL dbs range from 5'9 to 6'0 typically have vert and speed to make up for 2-3 inches of ht WRs have. Hell Revis is 5'10 Chris Harris Jr is 5'9 there are plenty of All pro/ Hall famers at the position below 5'11.

Barring injury Jaymest won't start at CB this year. I could easily see him start at nickel but actual CB this year isn't going to happen with King and Lammons returning plus throw Fenton in there as well. Jaymest will definitely have a chance to make an impact but a starting job at CB this year with our top 3 returning is just crazy because while our secondary had some issues last year the majority of them were at the safety spot.

I could be wrong but is 5'9 and 5'11 really a big difference at corner. Muschamp said last season can't remember which corner but he said he had a good vertical. It's. It like corners are going to be 6'2. They're always going to undersized to a WR. We don't have many corners over 5'10 if any.

Lammons is only 5'9". Unless we somehow find a quick DE that can rush the QB, we will continue to play mostly zone. I do think T-Rob will give Jamyest some reps at corner, especially if we are playing a team that throws it 50 times a game. It will be interesting to see how physical J-Will is with WR if he gets a chance to play press coverage at corner. I think Nixon will get plenty of PT at corner. I think he's going to be too good to keep off the field. And he has the size to be very physical with WR. Although, it will take all the new guys 3-4 games before they learn our defensive sets.

We fully expect him to start from day one and be our best cornerback.

We will curse him when he makes freshmen mistakes.

By the end up the season we will call for him never to see the field as cornerback again because he is not an All American after his first year.

Lammons is not that much smaller than smith. 5-10 lbs maybe. And he's bigger than the other safety. I forget his name. Played in spring game

First off the Kid is not 5'9 he is more closer to 5'8 to be honest. With that being said Williams is a very good football player, and he should be starting by his sophomore year! If he keeps his head straight he will definitely be a star at USC and the SEC, the talent is there and he plays hard. He won't be a disappointment; I can't wait to see him play!!

Wasn't williams rated higher than stephon Gilmore coming out of HS? I know it's apples to oranges and rankings don't mean a lot but I'm curious if Gilmore started game 1 and if there were upper class men with experience in front of him when he did.

Gilmore was one of the top players in the country out of high school, a 5 star player by some services. Williams is a nice recruit, a solid 4 star, but not a top 50 player.

King and Lammons will start. Fenton, Chalmers, Nixon and Williams should play also.
