I don't know about any of you guys but looking at past recruiting commits, especially in the last 3 years, makes me kinda depressed about some of the higher rated guys we got (Devon Hunter, Nathan Proctor, Dylan Rivers) How excited we were for them, and how they
panned out weren't the instant starters we expected. I figured maybe some of them could do with a position change that could help them improve. Some of these are just wishful thinking, tell me what you think
Current Position: LB
New Position: DE
Raise your hand if you think Rivers will ever start at LB again. Nobody raises their hand. I think it was apparent from the first few games of last season that Rivers was a big body, he just struggled with speed to play Backer. With Ashby lined up to play Mike, and Dax after he graduates, why not give it a shot? He is 237 lbs!!!
Current Position: TE
New Position: RB
James Mitchell is good. Dalton Keene is also good. You can't have two TEs on the field all the time. With the injury to Jalen Holston, it looks like all of our RBs (McClease, King, Wheatley, Steward) are all under 210 lbs, why not add some weight and try running Keene up the gut? Are we worried about ball security?
These are the two I thought of at the top of my head, Any others?
