Tentative: Jacquian Williams (knee)
Overview: The starting trio from last season (Chase Blackburn, Michael Boley and Mathias Kiwanuka) have all moved on to other places or different positions. The MLB competition appears to be between two former college stars - Connor and Herzlich. Let the best man win is the outlook going into camp.
The outside spots are also open. The Giants are hoping Rivers and/or Curry can live up to their top-10 draft status and that Williams stays healthy and continues to improve. Paysinger is coming on as an OLB and has drawn praise from the coaches this spring.
Muasau, Sabino and Bosworth must show special teams prowess as well as their capabilities at linebacker if they are to make the roster. There is an outside chance the team keeps all nine of these players, but most likely they will only seven. Muasau and Sabino are still practice squad-eligible.
