In my roster forecasts for the year thus far, I've predicted that Curtis Lofton would win out at middle linebacker. He had the advantage of being drafted under the new regime, being the most physical guy who could suit up there and seemingly being a quick learner. Based solely on who is getting the first start at MLB in Saturday's game, it looks like I'm wrong once again.
I'm very happy for Tony Taylor, who has stuck on the roster through tough times and despite his lack of size. He clearly knows how to play and is impressing in a way no one's giving him credit for, so this is a great opportunity for him.
Will he stick there?
