After being reminded a few names that are a part of the battle for reserve spots were left off the defensive line position analysis, I decided to insert this epilouge to my dedicated readership. To be honest, I wish we would have put all these guys in during the first run, but they never came up in my original conversation with Steve Stripling. Still, it is great to know you are reading and actually interested in reading these.
I got back in contact with defensive line coach Steve Stripling and he gave a brief line on a few off the guys that are currently listed off the two-deep chart.
Tangibles: 6-0, 286 pounds, RS Fresh.
Stripling's take: "He is an unknown because he has battled injuries, but camp will be important for him."
Tangibles: 6-5, 245, RS Fresh.
Stripling's take: "Also an unknown who will be participating for the first time."
Tangibles: 6-3, 255 pounds, Fresh.
Stripling's take: "Like all freshman it will be a matter of how fast he matures. He was very talented in high school."
PDJ Projection: It would take an extremely productive few weeks of fall practice for any of these guys to break through, but as was stated in the first post, beyond the top five spots these positions are pretty much a up for grabs.
