Defensive line, thoughts on current depth, next year, and recruiting

Chris Nelson and Poona Ford (Will Gallagher/IT)

Perhaps with the exception of the wide receivers, the defensive line has played the most consistent football this year of any position group. Because of that, the trepidation of the 2018 recruiting class has been much more muted than that of their cohorts on the offensive line.

I’m not particularly worried about either, but if we’re going to discuss the offensive line we might as well dissect the defensive line.

The 2018 class of defensive backs will very likely finish as the highest rated group the school has ever signed. Without researching it too much, it will also likely be the best position group to sign of any that routinely takes three players or more per cycle. For a school that fancies itself as DBU, that’s quite an accomplishment.

September’s over. We’ve seen the Horns play four games and now we have some Hudl to enjoy of commits to discuss how they fit. We’ve also heard Herman discuss what’s missing from the roster, or at least hint at it.

Thoughts on current and future LBs

On Saturday we were treated to something we haven’t seen since 2014, quality and consistent linebacker play from the whole unit, rather than poor fundamentals and a sprinkling of athletic WOW plays. Plays were made at the line of scrimmage or behind it rather than 10 yards down the field. They played physical. It was awesome.
