In fairness, 95% of the posts on here are bullshit....so it's up to us to figure out which 5% are relevant......that's the fun part.

How could a player possibly be concerned about the number of DEs we have? Half of them will never even make it through the clearinghouse. That's a joke, right? I'm dead serious. If Key is scared of the competitive numbers, then move on son.

We're going to try to stockpile on the position I believe we are making a push to be a top tier team, and if we have enough quality guys wanting to be elite SEC DLs for an elite national unit we are going to try to get them. Enough will be willing to be patient and develop and improve their game and won't be scared of the competition. We aren't going to get them all but I think we will get more than we need.

Probably, but Key has a bunch of growing to do, Rivers is much farther along.
I am less concerned about DE than any other position.

Still need as many as we can get. Losing Rivers is huge. He would have played right away. It'll be interesting to see who we sign other than Blackshear, if any.

His coach. But I imagine Rivers flipping to UGa helped a lot. I had heard that someone would drop.

I'd rather have Key than Rivers. Key has a higher ceiling to me. Rivers wants to play OLB now because he knows he's too short for the long term at DE. That and coaches have told him that's where he should be. I saw a picture of him standing by Richt today and he was barely taller than Richt. We all know that the guys with longer arms can do more things. Key most definitely has longer arms and a lot more room to grow.

Don't forget Richt was a QB for Miami..... He's not nick Sabah. Rivers is a heck of a talent as is Key. I want them both, lol.

I think we get key now and we could still get another good DE. Rivers was gonna be the 3rd best DE in this class at best, so i dont think this is that big of a deal.

You can't just keep adding a bunch of DE every class. Was Rivers going to beat out Thomas, Sawyer, Wideman, Blackshear and Key. Maybe he flipped because he saw too many good players already ahead of him.

Rivers too short for DE? He's 6'3". Could develop in to a solid 6'3" 260 by the time he hits the field. Could play LB or DE but considering how well he's done rushing the passer against elite OL in camps up to this point he would be best at DE. UGA sold him on playing LB because he isn't big enough to be a 3-4 DE. But he'd do just fine in the 4-3.

There is no way he's 6'3. He's barely taller than Richt. Unless Richt is 6'2 then I highly doubt Rivers is 6'3.

Yes you can. Games are won up front. You can't have too many good DE's, particularly ones that can rush the passer. Who knows if he would have beaten those guys? He would have added depth.

I believe that Sawyer and Wideman will end up on the inside so we may have a little more room at de than it would seem. I saw alot of Kelcy Quarles in hs and saw Wideman play in several games and Sawyer on video and they remind me a lot of each other at the same point in their careers

This is why losing Rivers is big and why you can never sign too many DE's. You never know how many of them will eventually grow into DT's.
