    Could Newell play tackle? Might be best to have one of the younger guys at center and move him out there.

    That’s a great question. I think someone has mentioned before that Schweiger could play C, allowing Newell to flex to another spot.

    There are options, just either way (barring a grad transfer) it’ll be a pretty inexperienced OL.

    I've read this more than once here, but where is this coming from? I believe you; having some kind of source would be nice...

    Ok. Looking forward to an official comment from the staff. Always welcome players looking for another way to get on the field. And I'm sure Coach Rasheed loves the extra bodies. Kleinow certainly has the size, but @ 6'6" he may struggle with pad level on the interior. Best of luck to him!

    JGJ was a center. CMC said Downing is the most talented lineman he's ever coached. Bookend OTs for three years isn't a bad thing.
