29.Dec.2009 DL Issues in 2011
Again we’re looking at massive replacements on the DL starting in 2011. Next season should see adequate depth and marginal talent, but at the end of the season the Beavers will graduate 6 seniors and all 4 starting defensive linemen.
LaGrone-Sr*, Olander-Sr*, Paea-Sr*, Miller-Sr*, Hunt-Sr, Hull-Sr, Frahm-Jr, Henry-Fr, Rosa-Fr, Masanini-So
That means in 2011, our starting DEs will be Frahm (God help us) and Henry. Masaini at DT looks promising, but who plays next to him? Note the lack of two quality starting DEs and the lack of depth at DL. Doesn’t it always seem there’s one glaring hole on Riley’s teams? Does he not have a recruiting/depth chart that says “need x number of position y”? I mean, NCAA football 2005 had that feature, you’d think a coach would.
