What a difference a year makes. Last year, the only positive that the "other coach" could muster about big McCullers was that he could maybe clog up the middle and make running the ball difficult. This year, Big Dan is a possible standout. Our D will be better all around.
What I'm most excited about is three incoming freshmen that could raise the bar at defensive end to a new level. Corey Vereen proved himself in the spring. The player that I'm most excited to see is Jaylen Miller out of Carolina. Right there with him is the highly coveted Jason Carr out of Memphis. Both Miller and Carr had over 25 sacks each last year.
All three will get PT early this year and, on a long shot, I'd say one will start by the 3rd or 4th game. The exciting part is, it could be any of the three that works their way into a starting position.
