We now have a team oriented line rather than individual performance.

i dont agree with this team vs individual angle, but we will have more depth. so while its not as likely were going to have 2 all sec players on the line, if we get enough of these freshmen in and english, harris, and cooper can put on enough weight we'll be more versatile with more options.

Is Devin Washington going to play? He had a concussion and has been out for a year now I believe.

He's been cleared to workout with the team and returns so far have been positive from everything I've read. Hopefully he sees the field this year.

Devin is a great person. I hope the concussion issues didn't kill his desire to play football because I think he can be very good.

I could see us using Cooper or Harris as a "rover" on some downs where they won't be at a set position, but their only goal will be getting after the QB. Could be cool to utilize.

I wish Harris and English could play LB against run heavy teams. They won't see the field versus Auburn or UGA.

I believe you. He is a super talented player that I think can gain weight easily. I just had not been to one of his game since the early part of the season. I'm sure all the guys are probably different weights. I checked out English and he was 245lb. I decided to wait for the winter reports to come out to show new weights since they will loose some weight during spring training anyway.

I think he will be in the rotation. Personally, I have never known a player to be out so long with a concussion.

English will see the field a lot this year against all the teams. He is not the same size as we saw him during the bowl interview.

Dukes starting is totally possible. Last year most believed that Surratt and Dixon were very similar and Dukes was not far behind in talent. I expect someone to break from the pack.

I forgot about Cooper. I can't wait to see how he takes to the position change.

i got some weight room updates from Clark at rivals

"I know a lot of you are curious about DE and CB in particular going into the spring. I can tell you that Darius English is now 240 pounds and Cedrick Cooper, who of course moved over to DE from LB last last year, is 235. English was listed at 226 going into list season and Cooper at 213.
The goal is to get English up to 250 pounds by spring, so we'll see. Just wanted to pass that on."

I do too. I remember insiders saying he has a chance to be really good soon after NSD 2013. He has good size and a good motor, which seems to be a common theme regarding some of the DE's we've recruited the last couple of years.

It'll be difficult to come back from being out a year though and still reach his potential. He was held out of practice for so long and who knows what else he was held out of (weightlifting, workouts). Rooting for him.

Yeah, but hopefully an entire offseason of working out and getting back in to shape plus spring practice will be beneficial for him.

I like the way deke rotates his group. He lets everybody play and keeps the guys fresh. Plus he is a great recruiter. This years performance of that group will tell a lot. I'm starting to like him more and more

Adams does rotate the line well and he has great recruiting skills. i don't know how much Clowney, Quarles and others took to his style of coaching. I believe Dixon (44) believed in his coaching style. I just don't know how much the starters took to his coaching style. He was not on the same level as Brad Lawing. Physical shape, confusion, missed assignments, arguments among coaches kind of give you a clue. Adams did well his first year and will get better. I will not cry anymore over spilled milk.

I've always thought the second year will be the year teams start seeing results from new coaches, particularly position coaches. Dixon and Dukes both seemed to take to Deke very well, and hopefully a second year under him sees much improvement from that unit.
