04.Mar.2012 Spring Practice One Month Away
Just a head's up, spring practice starts 4/3.
I was looking at Mannion's line. Pretty impressive (sans the turnovers) for a freshman.
Here's an interview where he discusses improving his game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3Dc89rGdNQ
And here Markus Wheaton mentions he added 10lbs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWDggQL2yEU
Some of these freshman lineman will make a push…this offense could be potent. Guys I really like are Grant Bays (C), Seumalo (OG), Gavin Andrews (OG), and Garrett Weinrich (OT). Caleb Smith should start at TE–this seems like a no-brainer. I'd love to see a Patriot style dual TE attack with Smith and Stanton (or Perry). It'll be interesting to see how spring pans out because the aforementioned may be better than the incumbents. Something else to watch is if Seumalo switches to defensive tackle. I hear he's open to the idea.
