Richmond
Smith
Kennedy
Hall
Tatum
J. Johnson
Carvin
Brooks
R. Johnson
Calbert
Locklear
Niehaus

Let us hope we can get an efficient eight out of these because this is where we'll either be a lot better than expected or 13th like many predict.

There is definitely 8 in there. Niehaus and Brooks are probably the only guys that need to rethink things.

New redshirt rule also means Antonutti and Lane could see action in the three easier non conference games if they come in strong enough.

It's not much, but it does allow us to rest and possibly prevent injury to the currently key pieces.

Maybe let's not suggest any of these guys "rethink things" as we went thru some guys on the OL last season and were desperate for the next best ones to be there to step up. I hope that never happens again, but you never know.

Niehaus will be fine. Brooks has no business on Oline.

The overall numbers show Oline is NOT the concern it was when Butch was fired. Sure, it needs work, but the parts are there to put up an adequate line.

Tatums gotten bigger, but he wasnt moving that well in the spring game and didnt seem much stronger. Hes still got a long way to go to be a serviceable OT for us.

Theyll definitely look at putting Richmond or Smith at RT in front of Tatum this fall. Only problem with Smith at OT is that then wed be looking at putting someone like Carvin or Locklear at one OG spot and ideally wed get both of those guys redshirts IMO.


If Hall really can come back healthy, he could slide into an OG spot and do well there IMO. But I just dont expect to see him get there health wise.

We have so many options at guard, a good problem to have, and it will be interesting seeing how the coaches sort it out.
