I've noticed Nikell Robey gets dialed up on a lot of blitzes, more so than the other DB's.

Who takes over those duties when Gilmore, Byrd and Brooks are back? Because Robey's not that good at it.

My guess is it would be Brooks. Robey is quick but can't really get close enough to the QB... Brooks is just as fast and stronger...

I doubt coach dials up a blitz for Byrd at all... Gilmore may see some action in blitzes also but my guess is Brooks and Robey will have the most opportunities...

It's more a function of the fact that he is playing the nickel. You rarely see an outside corner blitz because it takes so long to get there

I think whoever is playing nickel DB or I guess more generally who ever is line up over the slot, is the blitzer. With a healthy depth chart, guessing Brooks?
