I feel sorry for Lole. He has had a really tough year. I hope he fully recovers from the tricep tear. But now it is Next Man Up.

I guess that Forman will slide into the 3-gap DT position and 305 lbs Tautala Pesefea will back up Davidson at NT. Forman is a versatile 315 lbs big man. He even played DE when ASU used a 3-man front. Additional depth is where the fun starts. Who backs up Forman? We have Omarr Norman-Lott raring to go. I have read that he has had a good camp. He has acceptable size at 280 lbs, but he wins line battles with his quickness. Think Will Sutton. Stephon Wright can take some snaps as well.

Then comes some interesting looking newcomers that may see quality snaps in special situations. We may end up going deep into the bench. Preferred walk on Matthew Palo Mao can be a 315 lbs run stuffer on short yardage situations. Joe Moore and preferred walk on BJ Green are quick high energy DLs that can be effecting at pressuring QBs in passing situations.

How often have we been able to talk about a half dozen good DTs? Even after losing Lole, I feel we are headed for a great season - if the coaching staff can stay out of Football Jail.
