It depends how those spots are filled. The max for those spots would be 1 RB, 1 WR, 3 OL, 2 LB, 1 DB. That would leave 1 spot for DH or an interior DL. Now if we don't get Haselwood & decide not to take another DB then there would be room for your scenario.

I don't see even wanting a sixth DB unless some super-star (say Booth) falls from the heavens. That's not likely. I can see saving a slot for some transfer and if Haselwood becomes available, use it there. Truthfully, the likelihood of an unexpected super star DB or WR just showing up on our doorstep is pretty close to zero. While I'd like two more LB's, there's simply not much left out there unless we can flip one and that's not easy to do. We'll be lucky to get one more quality LB.

In short, there are more slots available than there are targets that we have a reasonable shot at. I think we can take Hall and most likely will still be scrapping around looking for one or two "diamond in the rough" types come February.

I think the slow playing of Hall has turned his off quite a bit towards AU.

Despite most predictions being for AU gotta think Miss St may be the actual leader since he has gone to see them the past 3 weeks, twice at Starkville & now once on the road.

Gonna trust the staff on this one. Just hope nothing on the sidelines turns off whatever bigger fish they have their eyes on.

I will trust Rotney and TWill to do the damn thing right up until they load up the UHaul and head south on College Street.

It kinda falls off after them. Porter, Woodson and Brown just don't have the tenure yet. And Kodi and Chip need to walk through a car wash to get the stink off.

I'll trust the new staff after they earn it. Which I'll be pulling for them to do.

From the crumbs we got from WDE Gus already screwed this one up as well slow playing him. It sounded like he would be a Auburn Tiger already if we let him. Maybe I am misremembering what WDE said. But if I am not......  BRILLIANT! Gus is just the gift that keeps on giving.........

Oh wow. If it was Gus that screwed up the recruitment of a DL that the other guys wanted, then, well, what else is there to say.

Gus's stance on D recruits barring character issues is whoever Steele wants.. Gus gives him the positional numbers but Steele makes the choices after that.

ehh I am pissed at Gus for completely ruining something we wait 9 months for and killing the joy and fun of it. Going to continue to blame gus. Just going to bury my head in the sand for this one.

You must remember that WDE hates Gus and will miss no opportunity to pass along any negative rumor, be it founded in truth or not.

He may hate Gus but he just does not make up stuff either.

According to what ellitor said, above, if we did "slow play" Hall it would have been Steele's and/or Garner's decision, not Gus's. So there's that conflicting information for you to sort out.

nope. gonna blame the 49 million dollar man. Nothing for me to sort out. Slow playing reeks of Gustav. Seen the same song and dance before with him. Slow playing is why Jonah Williams is at bama among others.
