I thought he was supposed to be a monster at offensive tackle? Best of luck to him though hopefully he can contribute this season.

I realize we lost a few very talented DL contributors but why does removing a talented AND experienced OL make any sense?? They take longer to develop than the DL and Malik is one of our bright spots on the front of the offense.

I need to trust in the coaches but this gives me... pause.

I'm assuming the coach knows a lot more than us, but

1. The next sentence almost he talks about worrying about depth at the OL. So he takes a player away from there?

2. Since we have a defensive minded coach, moves like this always makes me wonder. I don't know how to quantify this, but say you could score someone at a position. Malik gets a 70 on the offensive line but a 80 at defensive line then even though the rest of the offensive line is at the same or slightly less, the defensive minded coach would be more focused on strengthening the more 'important' side of the ball.

I think this has more to do with the current OL as well as what is coming in on the OL. Something tells me that Muschamp thinks he would be more beneficial for the team on the DL than on the OL.

Where did you see he was suppose to be a monster at offensive tackle ? I remember him signing out of woodmont high school . Not a really highly recruited player as far as I can recall , but there were hopes he would pan out in time . I hope he can help on D line. Hes a big boy

Bailey is moving back to guard as well.

My early guess for the OL

LT- Daily
LG-Stanley
C- Douglas
RG- Bailey
RT-Hutcherson

Default Re: Malik Young to DT

Malik was considered a very big part of the OL at Left Tackle before last season started, but early on he lost the starting job to Daley. He was great depth to have for the OL with his experience, but if Daley was going to be the LT going forward, and if Bailey was locking down the RT spot, it was kinda shoving Young to a reserve role in his final year of FB, and that would be a shame.

I guess they thought he could better benefit the DL in his final season than the OL at this point....

Hopefully Malik can give us a little depth in the middle of the defensive line. We need another big body to rotate in and eat up blocks. I like Bailey moving back to the guard spot. He seemed to me to be a natural at guard.

Why we wish Malik the best, hopefully this is a sign that younger players are pushing up the depth chart. We'll have 17 OL on scholly at some point.

My main worry for this year has been who will take the other DT spot beside Kinlaw. I see now that the coaches have the same worry. It's a bad sign to have to move an experienced O lineman to D. Jeez, this move needs to pay off.

He didn’t play much last year. He’s been passed by others. I think he has a good chance to be a very good DT. Very strong and athletic, and he’ll likely pick up our defensive scheme fairly quickly.

Malik is very athletic. His build is that of a DT more so than a OL. Not saying he is going to light it up but he has a nasty streak and he could really help us shore up the DT position.

i look at it like guard is zach's best position and that trio inside already gives us a better run game. as far as young, hes a senior and hes likely the best suited to make a switch. of course we lose that depth at ot, but the optimistic thinking is we have 2 seniors at the ot positions so its best to get those guys ready starting now because we're going to need to be starters in 2019.

at dt i feel comfortable starting kobe smith next to kinlaw if we had to play soon, but our other 2 veteran dt's havent played, and while keir thomas can play dt id like to limit it to rabbits package as much as possible because its asking a lot of him and our other veteran de's probably wont be as stout against the run.

at the very least we probably need the extra body at dt for the spring, and into the fall. hes a good athlete so maybe it will stick, and being a veteran who has started at ot before if we get in a pinch he might be able to switch back no problem.

From Muschamp's remarks, I got the impression the coaches think Malik may get more playing time at DT than OL. Spring is a good time to try it out.
