NFL Nation: Antoine Harris
Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas
Time for a quick trip around the NFC South. This time, we're taking a look at a potential new starter for each team. In the case of the Falcons, we're bending the rules slightly.
After spending the last two years in Carolina, defensive tackle Damione Lewis maybe be stepping into a starting role. Lewis could be one of the keys to Carolina's season. He didn't work out as a first-round pick in St. Louis, but played well as a backup for the Panthers. With Kris Jenkins gone, Lewis finally might be in the perfect situation. The Panthers want more speed on the defensive line and speed is Lewis' strength.
New Orleans Saints
Free safety Kevin Kaesviharn wasn't able to claim a starting job after signing with the Saints last year, but he seems destined for the starting lineup this year.
It's not quite a starting position, but nickel backs play almost as much as starters and the Falcons are looking to fill this role. With Von Hutchins lost for the season with a foot injury, rookie Chevis Jackson, Antoine Harris and Blue Adams are getting work at nickel back.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Defensive end Gaines Adams started some as a rookie. But the Bucs are counting on him to be a full-time starter this year. Adams said a change in diet has him ready for big things.
