    Sir Pick ‘Em of Duval, Esquire, you’ve got some solid guesses. Really think we’re only going to carry two defensive ends? Counting on Alualu out wide sometimes?

    • Rich c

      LEO is also an end position…

      • LukeNSims

        I’m talking more in the non-pass rush capacity. We weren’t exactly great at stopping the run last year and the LEO is a pass rush specialist essentially.

        Babin and Branch are both rushers and not really run stoppers.

          From what I understand of the Seattle model, the DE (read: not LEO) is almost a DT. I think Alualu could easily swing out to the 5-tech on 1st downs. If Abry Jones make the roster, he could too.


          Dude is 6’4″, 315 pounds and has 35″ arms! Dang! Austen Lane, 33 3/8, Alualu, 33

          Remember, this regime loves length and speed.

            Freaks of nature, man.

          • flgatorsandjags

            Only bad thing about that is the strong side DE is a 2 gap space eater and a good run stuffer and Alu is neither. If Gus could get this guy going have him at NT and Roy Miller at the 5 tech. Gus is usually good at coaching these big bodies.

          Also, just for comparison sakes — starting LDE for Seattle
          Red Bryant – 6’4″ 323 – 33 3/8″
          Greg Scruggs – 6’3″ 284 – nearly 36″ long arms

    Also, I only picked 3 S’s because I think the press cover guys will be cross trained. It only makes sense.
