remaining 9 or so slots to fill

Recommended Posts

After we sign Pickens, and I feel like he will sign with us, who do we want to fill the remaining slots?  I would love to see us sign at least 2-3 more OLs, but if we go after grad transfers it could be a few months before this is determined. Here is my guess and it is only a semi-educated guess on numbers to fill.

2-3 OL

1 RB

1 WR

2-3  LB

1 ?

There are several names out there that I cannot remember off of the top of my head, so feel free to add names and positions for who you would like for us to finish up with.

@doc4aday The staff's plan as last I saw it reported which has been a while...

2 OL- I personally don't see how it's not 3 given we need a GT OT as well as high school or juco 1 each of OT & OG.

1 RB - MAR or Griffin

1 WR - Pickens

2 LB - Brothers & Russell are the known targets now.

1-2 DL - Cox & Moore seem the most likely.

1 GT QB - If the staff can find one available they like.

If there are any spots left the staff is looking to use it on another safety. Personally I'm torn between that & trying to find a GT Center.

There will definitely be a DL or two in the final group.

Very possible but not sure it's a definite if all our non SR DL come back as it's looking right now.

Please, tell me more. Our big name guys might be returning? That would be a huge deal.

I would be pleased if their "plan" works out, but my confidence level that AU will sign 2 more OL and 2 additional LB is not high.

We have a good shot at signing 2 more quality LB even though they may not be highly rated. I also think we will get 2 more OL but not sure on the quality. 1 of them will likely be a GT.

DB has an injury that may hurt his draft stock & work at the combine so he may choose to return.

Any possibility of one of the DT we sign will be converted to OT?

God I hope not 

Why wouldn’t we want a 6’, 2-3” short-arm OT? Freakin’ Gus.....

I really hope that Ashley gets his act together and develops into a quality OL whether it be at the guard or tackle position.  If Prince Sammons could get it together as well, would be a huge help along the OL.  Any news on Tega?  IF he comes back, this would be a huge, huge bonus & like signing a quality 4 or 5 star OT.

I would love it if DB comes back, along with MD.

I agree that it would be huge but not like signing a 4-5 start recruit which we should be doing.... They would be here 3-4 years to kick A and take names

I don't care if the player is a GT, JUCO or HS, just give me 3 good OLs and 2 good DLs. Y'all can have the rest.

No. Still planning to leave early so he can bring his family over to the US.

He’d better punt this time.

I never thought I’d ever be happy that one of our best players has an injury. I should be ashamed.
