Hill is making $600k, which is mediocre. They wouldn't bump White above Hill because Hill is more experienced. Gill and Hawkins have a lot of upside. I also guarantee you that they came cheap. We didn't match for Napier when he was offered ULL. That's all going cheap.
I have real questions about whether Lewis can adapt a NFL defensive approach to the college game. If he is intent on running a ton of Tampa 2, that's not good.
I really don't believe we have a bunch of dudes that are better served in a 40 front. Lole isn't a DE in a 40 scheme. DJ isn't ideal for a DT in a 40 front. Amiri Johnson will probably fine. Wright isn't the most explosive, but should be able to at least set the edge. But overall, I wouldn't expect to see consistent pressure from our DL without help. On top of that, if we go to more of a 4-2-5, which is being discussed, I don't think that's a great fit for either Merlin or Butler.
I ignore completely what happened in the Sun Bowl. The FSU OL was atrocious. Worse than ours. That was in no way indicative of the success (or failure) of the approach.
Last but not least, this is probably a one year stop for Lewis, so AP better take notes, and we get to jump on the coaching carousel again.
