Next year I'm looking forward to our Dline.. with English and Jhaustin Thomas as our bookends, Dukes/Griffin as our interior. Youth and athleticism abound
And if Lamin does end up staying, he probably will start over Dukes.. The DL could actually be better than this year haha
From what all the reports indicate, Darius English's body will not allow him to put on much more weight. I think he looks rail-thin, and I can't imagine someone that skinny being a full-time defensive end.
Next year I expect Dixon to be starting at DE instead of English.
