    Future Offensive/Defensive Line

    Edit: I'm bumping this thread. How does the future look for line play? Do we have enough talent at the positions? Is our problem recruiting or development?

    This is about the offensive and defensive line.

    Re: Future Defensive Line

    I was also wondering if anyone knew if Maggitt was going to receive a medical red-shirt?

    We will still have Laing, Jake, Simon, Rony Nelson, all of who/m will be Seniors next yr.

    Re: Future Defensive Line

    McDonough and Laing will likely start next year. Woods, Jensen, Simon, and Pompey will all play. Woods and Jensen should be pretty solid. Simon and Pompey will have some high hopes put on them.

    At DE we'll have Scott and Irving probably stepping in for Lattimer, then Maggitt (hopefully he can make a full recovery) replacing Neal. We'll also have Nelson, Kron, and Lemke there. I'm guessing Lemke will still be a year out, but who knows with a year with Yancy.

    Irving, Pompey, and Lemke all seem to have some high expectations, so it should be pretty exciting.

    BTW: Pompey was suited up for the Texas game, hoping he still redshirts though.

    Irving has tons of potential with the body frame that he has. He's an athletic freak. I just watched the Texas 4th quarter again on Cyclone Express and he was soooo slow off the ball. It was pretty bad to watch.

    Re: Future Defensive Line

    Yeah, I don't think that they're too bad off. I do think that they will bring in a JUCO DE. My guess at an early two-deep:

    DE: Maggitt (SR), Irving (SO), Kron (RSFR)
    DT: Laing (SR), Simon (SR), Jensen (SO)
    NG: McDonough (SR), Pompey (RSFR), Woods (JR)
    DE: Scott (JR), Nelson (SR), Unamed JUCO (JR), Lemke (RSFR)

    Uh, what? Those are usually mutually exclusive traits - athletic guys shouldn't be slow off the ball. Was he really slow, or just a step behind the snap like he didn't get a good jump on the count?


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Future Defensive Line

    Its hard to imagine this defense only loses 4 starters as Maggitt is hurt and was the starter from spring.

    Re: Future Defensive Line

    Is anyone else worried about the D-Line for next year? McDonough will be fine and Maggitt too but I'm not too sure about Laing and Scott. Of course past worries have gone pretty well with: Knott, AJK, and Jacques.

    Re: Future Defensive Line

    I like the potential of Scott, remember another year of strength and conditioning, plus all the experience he is getting this year, I think he could be a leader on the defense.

    Not worried about Scott at all. I think he's going to be very good for the next couple o fyears. Laing has been fairly good in a backup role this season and there's actually some pretty good talent behind him for once. I think our line has a chance to be very good in a couple years when Irving, Lempke, and Pompey have a few years in the system.

    Totally agree, to see him doing what he has weighing in at 223 is awesome. If he can get into the 240-250 range and maintain speed we may have a stud on our hands at rush end.

    It may just be me but I am not concerned about the future of the Dline for the first time in a while. If Laing makes a jump like McD did this past year he will be solid. Love the potential of guys behind him and am even excited about the recruiting class coming in with 3 guys set to hit the Dline already. I guess it's mostly based on hunches but I'm hopeful for the future which is more than I can say for the past few years.

    Way to go Wally, Shane and Coach Bray on working the DL!!

    I spoke to Maggitt during the Texas game and he is coming back next year. I thought he was a senior as it seems like the guy has been around forever. Glad he is coming back but I felt stupid after he said it will be his senior year.

    Re: Future Defensive Line

    Did Rony Nelson fall off a cliff or did I just miss his mention in this thread?
    In spot duty so far, Nelson has a sack, and from what I remember he has gotten a couple pressures as well. He's a piece to the puzzle as well.

    You kind of hope the injury to Maggitt was early enough that he can get back to form by next August. He will be needed.

    You missed it about three times.

    It seems like it has been forever, but he's just a junior this year. If he gets a medical redshirt, he'd have two years left. Hopefully he can recover fully from his injuries.
