Default Darius English

Well since it's looking like we will probably be pretty thin at DE next year. Do ya'll think English will add enough weight this off-season to be effective on every down?

Any chance he get's to 250? That's about 20 lbs.

Weight isn't the be-all, end-all part of being an effective DE. There have been plenty of guys who have had success playing the positioned while being "undersized." With that said, English does need to add some more weight to help him deal with the big tackles he'll be facing regularly.

We really need to get him to be 240 lbs to even be serviceable as a DE in our package. If he could maintain his speed and go above that, than it's just gravy.

I have no doubt about his speed. His size is all of the concern. As long as he is strong for his size he can still be effective.

He will have to work hard to get to 250 but that would be best. I think he can do it. I know he is quick but when you face an elite tackle weighing 320-330, every pound helps. Also hope he listened to advice from Clowney.

My thing with Beasley is he is 6'3. His 235 is a lot different than English's would be. Beasley has strong arms.

Also Beasley mostly flashed on passing downs.

Default Re: Darius English

how much did Taylor weigh his soph season (the first one he started)? I remember I thought he was too light, going into the season, but that was in some respects his best season and he was certainly more than adequate. We also have to remember we are probably going to have some beasts in the LB core to help stone the run.

Oh god another "weight" thread.

The kid had the means and access to add as much good weight as he wants to at USC if he is dedicated. He should of added it already. Something is wrong in the dedication department

Some people just can't gain wait i.e. Mason Harris.

Women gain weight easier than men...people that are born leaner have trouble gaining weight...English has a lean frame and it will be harder for him to gain weight.

Of course, he could go to Bojangles everyday, then he would gain weight, but it would be useless.
Good weight is hard to gain...maybe if you actually got your ass off the couch and out of your ass you'd know that.

Yes, just not a Doctor. They are never really as informed as they should be actually if you know what I mean.

Yes you are right! Good weight is very hard to gain! But it is possible for anyone with the dedication and especially at the ages of 18-23

That is true. It takes time. A series of bulking and cutting takes a full offseason. But anyone can do it especially at his age

I was not trashing English.

Some stated that Harris could not gain weight.

I stated that that was completely false.

Learn reading comprehension. I said nothing bad about English. WTH are you talking ab?
