    Jay-nard Bostwick, 6'3"/305 true freshman, is going to burn his redshirt. DJ Durkin says Joey Ivey and Brian Cox will also help out. Both are undersized compared to Bostwick.

    We will be in much better straits than UGA or LSU which don't have much experienced depth at DL or on defense period.

    When the next depth chart comes out next Monday, I think the DT depth chart will look like this:

    Nose: Leon Orr - Damien Jacobs
    Tackle: Darious Cummings - Jay-nard Bostwick - Joey Ivie OR Bryan Cox, Jr

    This presumes Durkins comments were correct and UF doesn't get any DTs injured at UK.

    UK's offensive line isn't as good as Tennessee's. That rotation -- along with our ends and linebackers -- are plenty good enough to get the job done.

    I think he came in with an injury and they are trying to redshirt him.

    How about Quez Williams? He was moved to the OLine and hasn't played there either.

    Maybe Bostwick is looking good at practice. His experience will pay off in the future.

    Cummings, Jacobs, Orr, and Botswick are it at DT. On some downs Bullard can slide inside and RoPo takes his spot outside.

    Easley will be missed.

    We will see which boys turn into men in the absence of Easley.

    Once the shock wears off, my hope is that someone - if not all of them - get the message that they are going to have to step up their attitudes, leadership skills, maturity, and intensity to fill the void.

    It is a sports metaphor for life (as we all know), and not an atypical situation, where the blows come, you go down, and then you have to determine whether you will get up off the mat, respond to the growth challenge, and rise to the occasion.

    These guys have got the raw stuff and the coaches know what to do; it just may take a moment to refocus.

    Isn't it a bit easier for DL to play early than say OL?

    I was thinking about it, looking at who we have, Bullard has the size to move inside if need be, with ROPO moving to DE, plus Bullard has some of the same explosiveness that Easley has. Definitely time for our youngsters the get their feet wet.

    Put 20 lbs on Dante Fowler and you have Dominique Easley.

    Jonathon Bullard is a classic strong side defensive end.

    I think Bostwick has the highest ceiling of all the DL in his class. That said, wasn't expecting anything from him this year. Or expecting to need anything from him either.

    I suspect in passing situations we will see plenty of Bullard sliding inside. With Powell and Fowler, we have plenty of options using 5 or 6 DBs.

    My bigger concern without Easley out is first and second down

    Hmmm another little brick in the wall for next year being the big year - returning more experienced Dlinemen.

    Didn't make it in. I forget why.

    Bostwick and/or Brantley need to step up into the rotation and play big. Especially against the teams with strong run games.
