    ... or playing true freshmen could mean you've found a hidden diamond... Hopefully we have several first year players who earn their way to some meaningful snaps this season. I'm not saying they'll start, but see the field in certain situations. Last year's roster alone won't win an SECE championship.

    I hope they don't have to be the answer and that we develop the redshirted talent in front of them and that they are only asked to work into the rotation to keep everyone fresh and not get overwhelmed or over tired by the any fast pace O's. If Bullard, Fowler & Orr are NEVER tired in the 4th, we will be much tougher to beat. Willis & Holley can help with that.

    Holley is 300 lb and has 2 true DT talented RFR in front of him, everyone else is 250. And I think you need to watch tape on Willis. He's a freak and an animal.

    I see Willis getting some snaps and making good use of them similar to Dante Fowler Jr. his Freshman season.We have plenty other D-linemen who's time has come to get their playing time and prove that they're solid depth. As far as the rest of the D-line freshman, they probably will all redshirt to gain valuable experience.

    Honestly, if I had to break down the snap percentage for each position/player off the top of my head:

    DT:
    Cummings - 67%
    Orr - 63%
    Bullard - 40%
    Bostwick - 23%
    Brantley - 17%
    Ivie - 15%
    Holley - 3%
    Clark - RS

    DE:
    Bullard - 38%
    Cox Jr. - 33%
    Fowler - 15%
    Willis - 14%
    Ivie - 8%

    B:
    Fowler - 60%
    Cox Jr. - 22%
    Ball - 18%
    McCalister - 8%
    Sherit - 2%

    Just off the top of my head guessing on how much PT they each get.
