I want to go in THAT Bar!
I've never been terribly impressed with Heitzman at DE. The move to TE makes sense, because we have quite the stable at DE right now. I would've rather seen him move to DT rather than TE though.TE: Paskorz, Williams, Butt, Kill, and Bunting. 1 True freshman, Butt is out with an injury. 4/5 bodies for 1 position, sometimes 2, very rarely 3.DT: Pipkins, Strobel, Henry, Glasgow, Poggi, Hurst, Mone, Pallante. 2 true freshmen, 1 walk on. 8 bodies for 2 positions.DE is set for a minute. A lot of talent there for now.What are your thoughts, Magnus?
I don't think Heitzman is/was going to be great at any position. I agree that we don't need him at defensive end, especially if we're going to run an Over front. If we're going to run Over, we don't need those DT/DE tweeners like in an Under. Paskorz is gone after this year and hasn't played much, and Williams is a questionable blocker already. Butt is obviously injured for a little while. So I think it makes some sense to put Heitzman in there and see how it goes. He's a high-motor player, so maybe he can provide some blocking prowess that Paskorz/Williams can't.
