Training camp closure: NFC South

The fine-tuning has just about reached the final stages.

In just a couple of weeks, the 2006 NFL regular season will be officially under way, and as usual, unpredictability is likely to abound, with lots of unheralded newcomers providing surprising impacts while an equal number of established players raise our eyebrows with their surprising inability to live up to expectations.

In Pro Football Weekly's final leaguewide rundown of this year's training camp action, we provide more than a few clues about what to expect from every team in the mix this season -- for better or worse.

In the following NFC South report, we pick a veteran player and a rookie player from each team who deserves special notice, in addition to identifying each team's strongest and weakest positions and providing a comprehensive injury update of every roster through the first two weeks of the preseason.
