Nice to see Kilby on the roster. With a little more weight, he's a difference maker!!!!

Wouldn't count on it.

Dieuly in a boot after successful surgery. Not sure about the rest. Assuming Vann should be ready to go by now as well.

Bizarre situation. You have way more inside info than any of us, so I'll take your word for it. But seeing him still on the roster, and retweeting Chris Creighton, makes me wonder what's going on with him.

Let's just see where we're at when actual bodies show up in actual pads for Spring ball, and again this summer. Bizarre stuff happens with these kids all the time.

RE: Unofficial 2017 Spring Ball Thread
Going to be a lot of shuffling on the OL until they figure out the starting 5. Right now the 3 returning starters are Leatiota, Armstrong, and Nielsen, although their positions could end up being different than last year. A couple new names that are trying to push their way into the starting five include Tallman and Donnellon. Dervil has a lot of work to do at this point, nowhere near an automatic starter. This group could be shuffled all the way thru the early part of the season before a solid 5 is determined.

Hopefully we add another juco tackle this spring early summer

Exactly. Tallman could be our new center. I think Donnellon is working inside with Leatiota, and we've got other guys with at least some limited experience inside. Outside is still the major issue and they'd love for Nielsen to step up, but not sure he has the feet or technique at this point, although he'll get a lot of opportunity to develop as we approach next season. I think Armstrong is playing tackle out of necessity at this point, but his game reps at the position over the last 2 years were shaky at best. He's definitely better inside at this point, but he'll also get a lot more reps to improve over the next 6 months. Not giving up on Dervil already, and hopefully the extra reps against better competition will improve his game as well.

Once our OT's can hold their own against Harris and Crosby on a daily basis, they'll be ready to take the field with confidence, and our offense will be ready to improve upon last year.

Yep, great kid! Tons of skill and depth at LB, in good shape there.
