Campbell said that Noland was the best QB LAST year, and maybe it was true then given Noland's early enrollment, work ethic, and reportedly being an intense student of the game. At that time Park hadn't played for 2 years and was clearly rusty and needed to be coached up a LOT when he did finally see the field. Watching them and Lanning before Noland got hurt, Noland very well may have been the best. Now, Noland is almost certainly #2 since Noland has the rust. But it WILL be exciting if Nolan is still the best, because Park improved a great deal by the end of the year and certainly was the best available then in the coaches' eyes. Lanning certainly is an excellent athlete, but with a healthy Noland it would seem that Lanning is at best #3, maybe even #4 if Kempt has also improved. Kempt had some pretty good cred coming out of HS, things didn't work out for him but not necessarily because of lack of ability. So what to do with Lanning? If Allen and Soehner are as good as said, don't need him at TE and he's never blocked, no idea if he can catch, so doesn't seem like a fit or need. WR? Yeah, let's sit Lazard or Jones or Eaton, kinda a program strength plus need to catch and block there too. RB? Better than Montgomery and Warren, and Nwangnu if he's healthy? Doubtful, almost certainly a #3 at best. Might as well leave him standing on the sideline with a clipboard with the rest of the QB's. So, as odd as LB seems, what else, if you want to get him on the field more. If Lanning wants to play post-grad, that's his best chance. If he wants to play more as a senior, it's his best chance. Will he be any good? Well, switching to LB isn't the easiest thing in the world, LB isn't an easy position as anyone who has ever played LB would make emphatically clear. But where else? It is a spot that lacks bodies right now, and Lanning has one that suits, so maybe that will be the spot for him. Hope so, he's a great kid according to everything that's been said. He can easily still be a package guy at QB while playing LB, would be shocked if he's not. Hope he turns out to be a great LB. In hindsight, probably where he should have been there long before now. Has a really strong arm, air it out and have Lazard run under it was his best passing play. Touch and accuracy, not so much, unfortunately. Didn't drill it into the ground as much last year, but. I hope he has great success at LB, good thing should happen to good people.
