    Re: Player Profile: David Irving

    Nice writeup! I do think that you're missing one little factor, yaman;

    I think he has enough size to help Iowa State for maybe 10 plays a game. But if he is easily blocked, Iowa State will have other options and a redshirt will be used.
    Don't forget special teams. Neither Klein nor Knott were ready to line up from scrimmage, but they saw action as true freshmen on special teams--which helped prepare them to start (and excel) as sophs. If CPR feels that it would be the same benefit for David (assuming he can't add something to the pass rush), I suspect that he would do the same.

    Besides, aside from kick return coverage (with his size and speed), imagine DI lining up to block field goals. Or, in a flight of fancy, with his hands, lining up on the field goal unit as a blocker, then slipping into the flat and being an awesome target for the first down--or more.

    As far as "who he reminds me of", I've already mentioned MSU's William Gholston a couple of times. However, a more familiar face for Cyclone fans would be Reggie Hayward albeit also two inches taller. And I'm not sure that Reggie was ever anywhere near 261 as a Cyclone.




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.
