Powell is really small. Hard to imagine him getting up to 245-250. Daniel is big, but if he has wheels like Fowler, he could play there, though I don't see DEs in this class with Fowler's size and speed. I don't know that we'll find a player in every class who can play Buck. I think it's going to be a bit of a guessing game with most of the bigger ones ending up at SSDE and the smaller ones at Sam. I like the trajectory that McCray took, starting off as a Sam, then going back and forth between Sam and DE, then finally blossoming as a Buck his senior year. Sam demands a lot of the same skills, a mix of pass coverage, pass rushing and run containment. A 230 pound freshman Sam could easily get to 255 by his junior year.
