    My favorite episode is when Starbuck helps Dumbledore Calrissian take the Ring of Power back to the Harkonnen.

      For sure. Just would take an absolute freak, bc very few 275+ pound guys (I'm assuming they grow since they're JRs in hs and both have good frames) are as explosive off the edge as an equally athletic 255# guy. Our scheme uses a guy like Polite as a true speed rusher (in a 2 pt) and protects him in the run game so strength is just very secondary need to speed and explosiveness. Theres a guy from pahokee and another from orange park that I think are what granthem wants there.

      I actually think Polite is lighter now than he was in hs and I'm also trying trying to project kids that are 16 so could easily be wrong on them both. I also havent even mentioned Griffis, bc I don't know what to think yet based on his jr film.

      No one said it's a bad thing. How some of you interpret every little thing as negative is insane.

        The other kid, Griffis, is lighter and more in the speed rush mold. Around 220 I believe.

        He is. I have my rule of not saying anything I wouldn't say to someone's face so sometimes I just don't say things about certain commits. He's physical and strong at the point, but he brings zero pass rush which is priority 1, 2 & 3 for granthem at that spot. He's not overally athletic so he'll need to get by on technique in college or be a Duke Lemmons type...or switch positions. It's also a deep spot in FL so I'm guessing there will be options.

        Are we ever going to be switching to a true 3-4?

              As calling some "insane" circumvents negativity?

              No. If it were Donk's vortex of negativity it would be invisible because not even light can escape.

                Pretty sure that's a digital ass hole.

                Griffis from IMG is listed at 6-5 238

                      Very much hope we get this beast ... for production, for leadership, for mentoring, to create D-line pride.

                      He has the next 7 months to lose 20 lbs. Should be easy.

                      Polite looks to have lost 20 lbs from last season to the start of 2018.

                      I thought we preferred beefy DEs built for a 3-4?

                      If at 263 lbs he is an effective rusher, then let's accept that we have a freak, bull rushing toward the NFL.?? We need to put an end to this. :cool:
