5 New O-Lineman!

It has been said there are only 3 positions on a football team -- quarterbacks, lineman, and athletes. With that in mind, our biggest weakness heading into this season (and every season in recent memory) is the O-line. A lack of depth and talent plagues us yet again.

Fortunately, we have a wealth of available lineman on the other side of the ball and with only 3 down lineman required in our new defense, playing time will be virtually non-existent for the players at the bottom of the depth chart. I think the coaching staff should give a long hard look at each of these players as potential offensive lineman. Each one has been in the program for at least a year, giving them more than enough time to acclimate to the college game and to train in our strength and conditioning program.

1. Brandon Tuliaupupu

2. Seali'i Epenesa

3. Sam Tai

4. John Young

5. Kevin McReynolds

Not one of these players projects to be in the top 3 players at their position and if they aren't going to play anyway, I think they would benefit the team most at our biggest position of need. I also don't think we need to necessarily switch all 5, if two or three of them made the jump to the O-line that would adequately balance the depth of the lines overall. Is there any better way to address our depth issue on the O-line this season? Who else could make the switch?
