I guess I need to go check out his tape again. I just remember him being real long and made it hard for players to escape his wing span but what else is it about him that makes him special enough to push sutton? I'm really hoping he turns out to be great. Seems like a good kid too.

Darius Engish is atheletic enough to play DE or LB. The guy puts on some pounds and he could be the NEXT BIG THING after Clowney. If you think being 6'8" means you cant play linebacker, look as far as Bama and youll see what a tall athletic linebacker can do. This guys special and he will be a huge playmaker for the Cocks in the future. get use to hearing his name! Just remember what I said......NEXT BIG THING!!

tallest backer on their roster is 6-6 250....I'm willing to bet he's an OLB who rushes the passer more often than not. A LB in our system is completely different than an LB in Bama's so your argument is a moot point. Being 6'8 at the backer position has zero benefit, except maybe dropping into coverage....the leverage he would need to be able to play with and the knee bend just does not fit when standing up and playing LB. His hand in the dirt is much better for him.

But that wingspan would be great going in coverage.

I am sure things can change but I asked my buddy on the Staff this same question and I was told no way. I like you thought it made sense.
