    Re: Defensive line aiming to fill the gaps in 2012

    CW - what have heard about Rony Nelson? He reported to camp, just not on depth chart and no one is asking about him.

    Yeah I think he'll be there. Not sure why he's not on the chart but as far as I know he's still on the team.

    Re: Defensive line aiming to fill the gaps in 2012

    I think at this point he has been pegged as a pash rush specialist so he's off the depth chart.

    Maybe they are trying to motivate him or maybe they just don't trust him enough to put him in there if it's not an obvious passing down. He never learned to play the run.

    Great post.

    For those wondering, he did practice today.

    Re: Defensive line aiming to fill the gaps in 2012

    I ran into Pierre Aka in Guthrie Center at the River Ruckus. He is very large, lean and looks the part maybe even more than David Irving did at the same time last year. He was also very friendly, he said he was a big country music fan. He said he was there with Kane Seeley and others.

    Re: Defensive line aiming to fill the gaps in 2012

    Taking a talented guy off the depth chart and putting them in the dog house a lot of the time motivates them and really improves their game. I hope that's whats happening with Nelsen, and I hope it works. Him being able to stop the run on top of rushing the passer would be huge. Especially if everything clicks for Irving this year too.
