Have to replace the Charles "Big Bully" Johnson (Image: Hipple)
Second in our series of Top Questions for 2007. Part I involved the offensive line. Part two revolves around....
Where will the pash rush come from?
-- Quentin Moses is a senior and Charles Johnson declared that he will enter the draft. They represent 11 of our 30 sacks on the season (stats pre-
Roderick Battle (rising So) is a nice young player, and Marcus Howard (225 lbs) has his moments in obvious passing downs. However, they aren't the Pollack, Moses, Johnson, or Charles Grant type players that we've had for the past 6 years at DE.
Jarius Wynn (Juco early enrollee) has the size (6'4" and 270 lbs) and speed to potentially be that special kind of player for the Dawgs. We should know by the end of Spring how he's progressing. Also, there's always the chance that Brandon Miller (SAM) will move to DE. There are also several guys redshirting that will help out here, but we're likely going to have a drop off at DE next year. It's just a question of how much.
Part III and IV later in the week.
